Window tinting has been popular amongst automobile owners for many years. Not only does it make your car look sleek and stylish, but also the protection and privacy it provides are unbeatable benefits. Now homeowners are seeking that same protection, privacy, comfort level and (yes) stylish appearance.
Home window tints can reduce the sun’s heat and glare inside your home by up to 93%. That means your energy costs will be greatly reduced, especially during those hot summer days when the air conditioner seems to run constantly. Furthermore, residential and commercial tints are made of a solar film that blocks 99% of harmful UV rays. Ultraviolet light is damaging to the color in carpets and upholstery, and can easily cause draperies and furniture to deteriorate quickly. Regular exposure to UV light is also extremely harmful to your skin.
Commercial architectural firms have been using solar films on their windows to reduce glare and to save on energy bills for many years. Recently, however, homeowners have taken notice of the benefits window tinting provides and have begun to install window tints on their residential windows.
Not only do tinted residential and commercial windows provide amazing energy conservation, but they also strengthen your windows. The additional layer of tint film prevents any kind of breakage during natural occurrences like hurricanes. The tinted film keeps the shards of glass in place so you will be protected from injury if your windows ever get broken during a storm. The added strength and protection make it almost impossible for the window to be shattered, making it very difficult for burglars to gain entry to your home through a broken window.
Installing window tints on your home or office building can significantly raise its overall value. Buyers will always want to purchase a building that is energy efficient and can offer them the most privacy and security. Tinting the windows of your home or commercial building is a wise economical choice. The money you save in energy costs, the protection from breakage and the ability to keep harmful UV light at bay are three huge advantages over traditional un-tinted windows.
