Tinted car windows are pretty common these days, providing added privacy to a car’s interior. But have you considered window tinting for your home? Home window tinting provides many benefits that you may not have considered.
1. Window Tinting Improves Energy Efficiency
Window films designed specifically for residential windows can significantly reduce your home's energy consumption. It adds a layer of insulation, and helps your windows to reflect light and heat. This means that outside heat is reflected back outward rather than penetrating the interior, and inside heat is reflected inward, keeping you warm inside on cold days. Tinted window film has been shown to help homeowners save up to 30% on cooling costs in summer, and heating costs in winter. If you're looking for an affordable way to lower your energy bill long-term, residential window tinting is an ideal solution.
2. It Renews the Look of Older Windows
When you have inefficient older windows on your home, purchasing new windows may become one of your house-renovating priorities. But the fact is, replacing windows is an expensive proposition. If that kind of investment is just not possible for a while, adding tinted window film may be your best option.
Home window tinting is affordable, and it gives your windows and your whole house a new look and a new life. Your old windows will be more energy efficient, since quality window film can make a single-pane window as energy-efficient as a double-pane window.
3. It Protects Your Home’s Interior From UV Rays and Glare
UV rays can penetrate untinted glass, and cause floors, carpets, upholstery, and wood furniture to fade and discolor. So, in addition to sprucing up the look of your home’s exterior, tinted window film will also protect your interior.
Window tinting also reduces the glare that can make looking at a television screen or computer monitor hard on your eyes. Toning down the brightness from outside means that your eyes do not have to adjust so much on sunny or overcast days. Too much light can make it hard to see people or objects inside, and can even make the outside view harsh on your eyes. Adding window tinting to your windows, new or old, will allow the right amount of natural light into your home.
4. It Makes Your Home More Secure
Have you ever looked into a lighted house at night? The fact is, it is always easy to see into a bright space. But with window tinting, your bright interior is not so bright to those looking in from the outside. And, during the daytime, it is extremely difficult for outsiders to see into your house at all. When potential intruders cannot see what’s inside, they are less likely to break in.
Even more, since window film adheres to the glass, anyone who tries to break your windows will find that it is not so easy. Even if the glass is shattered, the film will keep the window intact, making intrusion a much more difficult process.
