A Guide to Tinting Skylights – What to Know

The purpose of skylights is to let bright, and natural light wash over the interior of your home. It’s a great asset in modern homes and buildings, but too much sunlight comes with a price as you are inviting unwanted ultraviolet and infrared light. This can have damaging effects as the harmful rays tend to fade flooring and furniture.

Additionally, it can also exponentially heat your home, which can lead to higher energy costs in the long run. To that end, if you’re looking to install a skylight and reap the benefits of having natural light spruce up your home, applying some window tints is the best solution.

Window tints are designed to block off 90% of the sun’s harmful UV rays, which in turn, protects you and the surfaces of your home from sun bleaching and fading. It is also an effective way to regulate the temperature of your home and alleviate the use of your heater or cooling systems, enabling you to reduce energy and save on your monthly bills. In that regard, here are reasons how tinting your skylight can help you maximize natural light without the annoyances associated with it.

 

Benefit #1: UV Protection

One of the primary uses of window films is to block 99% of the sun’s ultraviolet rays, which help reduce glare and heat from entering homes. Not only does it absorb or reflect heat as needed, but it also alleviates the toll on cabinetry and other furnishings that are exposed from UV radiation. Furnishings that are the most vulnerable to fading are the following:

  • Wood cabinetry
  • Hardwood floors
  • Carpet
  • Area Rugs
  • Upholstered furniture
  • Photographs
  • Paintings
  • Drapery

By blocking UV rays, window tinting also protects your things from degrading or fading as an after-effect of sunlight streaming through the home.

 

Benefit #2: Energy Savings

As window tints limit the sun’s UV rays from entering interiors, this feature also reduces the use of a structure’s HVAC system, allowing you to reduce energy costs by roughly around 40% during the summer months. Not to mention, window tinting also regulates the interior’s temperature and can maintain a cold thermal reading of at least 60%.

 

Benefit #3: Privacy

Of course, darkened window tints are not just meant to block off sunlight, but it also offers privacy without obstructing the driver or occupants of a building from having a clear view of the outside. There is a wide selection of tints as well to allow people from choosing the level of dimness they find comfortable.

 

Benefit #4: Comfort

Whether installed on a vehicle or a residential or commercial building, window tints provide maximum comfort to a structure’s occupants as it can cut down the heat that enters the interiors, allowing rooms to stay cooler in the summer or warmer during the winter season. It also reduces glare from sunlight, allowing people to see clearly without any potentially hazardous disruptions.

 

Benefit #5: Safety

Window tints are made from heavy-gauge security films, which are shatter-resistant to keep shards in place in the event of a disaster such as smash-and-grab intrusions, violent storms, earthquakes, harsh winds, and more. This minimizes any damages that may happen as a result of breakage, keeping occupants safe from flying, broken glass. Not to mention, it is also resistant to scratches, which keeps it safe from vandalism or glass tagging.

We had a large window downstairs in our kitchen that got full sun. It really got the full heat of the day. Since tinting it, it has made a huge difference to our temperature in the house. We also had an upstairs window to do. The tint is installed on the inside, the job was done super quickly and the technician was excellent. very helpful.
