Replace Windows or Tint Them? - What to Know
Replace Windows or Tint Them? – What to Know

If you want your home to be more energy-efficient, having dated windows might not help with that goal. But what most environmentalists don’t realize is that glass takes very long to decompose. For reference, it takes a million years before a glass bottle decomposes—so just imagine how long it’ll take for a whole window pane to decompose. Before you think of replacing your windows, try thinking of an eco-friendlier option: window tinting.

Here are a few reasons that it’s better to opt for window tinting rather than replacing the windows themselves:

 

  1. Easier on Your Budget

Replacing a window will cost you an arm and a leg, especially if you have several windows at home. Economically, it is not advisable to replace a window unless it’s completely unsalvageable. Also, think about the type of window you are replacing and how many windows there are that need to be changed. If the costs end up being too high, using window film can deliver the same benefits as a newly installed window but at a fraction of the cost.

 

  1. Preserves Your Home’s Original Architecture

Do you own an old, historic home? Even if you’re willing to spend a large amount of money on installing a new set of windows, you may not be able to, as it will be detrimental to the aesthetic of your home. Heritage homes are prohibited from being renovated, even if it’s only to change the windows. So, if you find yourself in this situation, then tinting your windows might be your best bet. You’ll be able to change the look of your windows without interfering with the historical aspect of the house.

 

  1. Keeps Your Home Energy-Efficient

While passive solar energy is better controlled by newer windows, leading to lower electricity bills, in order to maximize the effect you still need to install window blinds or curtains. Window film is a more cost-efficient and eco-friendly home improvement option because it blocks UV rays without having to waste materials by having old windows replaced.

And while window tint film blocks the sun’s harmful rays, it still allows natural light to pass through, keeping your indoor light usage at a minimum.

 

  1. Adds an Extra Layer of Security

Accidents happen all the time—sometimes when it’s least expected. You never know when a stray baseball or basketball will come crashing through your window.  If you have children or live near a park, installing window film tint can help reduce the risk of damage as it helps strengthen the window, making it more difficult for the window to break. This also provides an extra layer of security, as the window will be harder to tamper with as well. In the case of breakage, window film helps by holding the shattered pieces together, which will protect any of your loved ones who may be inside.

 

A Better Alternative

While a newly installed window might be more pleasing to look at, installing window tint instead will only be a fraction of the cost of window replacements, and will be the eco-friendlier option all in all. Give it a try! We’re sure you’ll be impressed.

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.
