Residential window tinting has become a very popular trend among homeowners. One of the greatest benefits of owning a home is you can customize it as you want. Many consumers know of window tinting for their cars, but not tinting for their home.
Would you like to save money, energy, and protect your home's interior? If you love this idea, then you should consider home window tinting. Here are seven benefits you can receive from tinting your home's windows!
1. Flooring and Furniture Fade Protection
UV and sunlight exposure can cause fading of fabric and furniture. Leather sofas, wood floors, and window blinds are some of the common areas our customers see fading before adding window film.
It only takes 6 months or less to start noticing fading or damage from UV exposure. Wood flooring begins to flake and discolor, while blinds tend to discolor and reshape, and leather sofa tend to crack. Research shows about 40% of the fading in furniture and fabrics is a result of UV exposure.
2. Less Glare
Do you have trouble working on your laptop during the day, or watching TV? The blinding glare coming through the windows can be frustrating. Intense glare will reflect off or surfaces such as the floors, mirrors, and countertops. Tinted windows can reduce glare without having to close the curtains or blinds and lose your view.
You also don’t have to choose a dark window tint. We have various window film choices to provide you the perfect film for your application, including state of the art CoolVu Transitional Window Film.
3. UV Ray Protection
Exposure to ultraviolet radiation can be harmful to your health. UV rays can penetrate the outer layer of the skin and mutate the skin cells causing damage. UV rays are of two different types. They include UVB and UVA. UVA is a lot more in sunlight compared to your UVB. But, it provides lower energy levels. UVA rays also cause photoaged skin and wrinkles. UVB radiation causes sunburns, and is also the cause of most skin cancers including melanoma.
When you install window film on your home, you are protecting your family from these harmful UV rays.
4. Increase Home Value
Home window tinting will help improve the aesthetic appeal of your home and increase the value of your home. Your home will appear more appealing from the exterior, and you can use the energy efficient home quality as a selling point.
5. Increased Privacy & Curb Appeal
Window tinting is an inexpensive way to instantly boost curb appeal, tinted windows appear more modern and can freshen up the exterior of any home. A reputable window tinting company will be able to help guide you in the process of finding the perfect film for your home.
Window tinting will also increase the privacy you have in your home, decreasing or possibly eliminating the need for window blinds and curtains that can block natural light making the space seem gloomy.
6. Lower Energy Cost
Windows are prone to being a large source of the heat entering your home, this heat causes your A/C unit to have to run more, increasing your energy bills. In fact, one of the main reasons homeowners add window tinting is for energy efficiency. Your air conditioner will not have to work as hard to maintain consistent temperatures. Studies show that home window tinting actually pays for itself overtime, with the energy savings received.
