Maintaining a comfortable temperature throughout your home can be no easy task. This is in part due to the fact that even the better windows on the market are much less efficient at keeping the sun’s energy out than walls are and many of today’s houses have the bulk of the windows all on one side of the house. Window films can help with hot spots and hot rooms, reducing heat gain and making for a more comfortable living environment. Some films can help with keeping winter heat inside the home as well!
Reduce Unwanted Glare
Ever been watching your favorite TV show and an annoying glare got in the way? Put an end to this by using window films to keep the sun out! Through the right choice in window tinting, you can keep the view outside that you want without having to reach for your sunglasses.
Note: In general, the darker (lower light transmission, in technical terms) the film, the more glare will be reduced.
Lengthen the Life of Valuables and Furnishings
Just as ultraviolet light can be harmful to your skin, it can also be harmful to the valuables in your home. All of our window films block 99% or more of the ultraviolet light coming through your windows to shield furnishings, drapes, carpet, paintings, and other important objects from fading or deteriorating from the sun, so you don’t have to worry about opening and closing the blinds throughout the day. We all long to have natural sunlight filling our rooms. With window films, you can enjoy this light without the damage that comes along with it.
Enhance Your Home’s Street Appeal
Window films are a great way to improve the overall look of your home. They can be used to add a decorative element to your home and will give your windows a uniform look from the outside. Looking to sell your home? Put window films to work before putting your home on the market. Not only will your home be more attractive to potential buyers, but you will also be able to win them over with the added comfort and view they can experience.
Protect Your Loved Ones
While window tinting does a lot for your comfort, it can do even more for those special people in your life. That’s because our window tinting blocks 99% of the ultraviolet light, which is a primary cause of skin cancer or damage. Window films also bring security to your home, as tinted windows are harder to see through and harder to break through. In the case of a storm, attempted break-in, or accident, the shattered glass will stay attached to the window film, instead of spreading glass around the room. Plus, thicker, security films are available which are even more effective for security purposes.
Whether you have just moved into your home in a new subdivision without grown trees or you’re in an older home and looking for another solution to a many years old problem, adding window tinting can be a great way to improve your home. Window film is no longer a luxury, but more of a necessity for comfort and cost savings.
