5 Reasons to Install Window Tint on Residential Homes

Whether you’re a new homeowner or planning to redecorate or renovate the property you already have, some major consideration should go into which type of window treatment to install. While most people usually go for the traditional blinds and curtains, some prefer a more effective shield from the sun: window tinting.

Window tinting involves applying a transparent film directly and seamlessly onto the glass. The films darken the window’s shade, thereby reducing the amount of sunlight that passes through. This technology is often used in cars. When used in residences, it gives homeowners more privacy while enjoying a more unobstructed view.

If you’re wondering if window tints are a good investment for your home, read on to learn more about its advantages:

 

  1. Cooler Interiors

Tinted windows create a more comfortable and pleasant home environment. The film reduces the amount of heat going into your house and filters out UV radiation. This kind of barrier makes your interiors cooler, especially during summer. If you live in a place where it’s hot throughout the year, you should consider installing window tints for your home.

 

  1. Better Aesthetics, Greater Home Value

Adding tints to your windows makes them look sleeker and more streamlined. There are decorative window films that come in different materials and patterns to suit a room’s interior design. If you’re planning to sell your home in the future, this increases the value of your property and may help the estate fetch a better price. Potential buyers look for homes with extra amenities, and energy efficiency is a huge selling point these days.

 

  1. Energy Savings

Window tinting not only adds comfort and aesthetic values to your home; it also allows you to cut down on your monthly bills. In the summer months, about 40% of utility bills come from cooling and air conditioning. A study conducted in Florida found that installing window tints can cut energy consumption by as much as 30%. Consider the savings you can make in a year by simply having your windows tinted.

 

  1. UV Protection

Aside from reducing the amount of heat and glare that goes into your home, tints also filter out the sun’s harsh UV rays. Excessive exposure to these harmful rays causes skin problems and speeds up signs of aging. By having your windows tinted, you can enjoy maximum protection even while staying indoors.

UV is harmful not just to our skin, but also to our possessions. If you have valuable items such as paintings and vintage furniture, chances are that you try to keep them away from direct sunlight. However, UV rays can still reach them, causing damage that will be visible over time. Depending on the kind of film you install, window tints can block up to 99 percent of UV radiation.

 

  1. Privacy

Window tinting gives your home a better sense of privacy. It gives you a clear view of the outside while making it hard for outsiders to peek inside. Some films can even be polarized, acting like one-way mirrors from the exterior. Blinds, screens, and curtains cannot give you this level of security.

There are many types of window tinting, and each one requires a different application process. Most films need water to activate the adhesive, while others use a heat source. While you can certainly install window films yourself, it’s still best to call the experts. Professionals use specialized tools and are trained to make sure there are no air bubbles trapped against the glass.

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.
