Windows add distinction, elegance and light to any home. However, window panes can be a great source of heat loss in the winter or heat gain in the summer. Unprotected glass cause an increase in UV damage to just about everything in your home from floor coverings, artwork and pictures on the walls, the wood on cabinets, tables, buffets and so much more. The solution to solar control is home window tinting or commercial window tinting. It reduces the sun’s damaging UV ray’s by 99.9% (the leading cause of fading).
The sun also increases heat entering a structure and glare coming into your home or office which makes watching television or working on a computer an almost impossible task. Our patented films can reject up to 84% of solar energy. Dramatically reducing the temperature of a home, which can help reduce cost of energy consumption. We love the light and the views from large windows but we can do without the damage the sun causes.
Benefits of Residential Window Tinting
Some window films offer another benefit in the area of safety:
1) Tinting minimizes heat and AC loss through windows, thus increasing energy savings.
2) It protects carpets, drapes and furniture from fading.
3) Tint cuts back on the sun’s damaging UV rays by over 90%.
4) The tint makes windows safer, preventing injury and damage from broken glass.
5) It reduces glare that can be annoying.
7) Tinting can be decorative.
Along with the safety benefits, window films can also help to reduce the glare on your television when viewing the big game. The percentage of glare reduction is usually related to the visible light transmittance. The lower the amount of light transmitted through the film, the greater the glare reduction inside the home.
While a darker film can offer more glare reduction and privacy, a clearer film offers a more natural view from the window. Darker films can also have higher values for reflectivity. Reflectivity can be beneficial when reflecting the sunlight, but it can be less desirable when the view out of your windows at night includes a shadowed version of the room’s interior.
