Things You Need to Consider When Tinting a Solarium

Do you think your solarium is getting a little too hot for you? There’s a solution that you may not have considered before. You can buy a window tint film, and you’ll see the difference that it makes. It can reduce heat gain in a solarium and, at the same time, provide insulation during the colder months. 

If you are interested in this solution, this article is for you as Premier Tint shares some of the things that you need to consider when you’re going to tint your solarium:


How Much Heat Do You Need to Block?

Window tint is indeed an excellent way to cut down the heat in the solarium, but how much heat do you want to block? Do you think you need 20% or 30% less heat? You need to consider this because window films come in various degrees of heat rejection. So whether you need to lessen just a bit of heat or block a whole lot of it, you can be sure that there’s a perfect window tint solution for you. 


How Will You Like the Look of the Solarium with the Window Tint?

Have you considered how the installation of window tints will affect your view? You should keep this in mind when choosing your window tints. You don’t have to worry because you have several window tints to choose from that allow you to keep the natural look of your surroundings or even enhance the view like polarized sunglasses do. There are window films that are more popular for solariums because of the bluish-grey hue it has that further enhances the look of the sky. 


How Will Tinting Affect Your Solarium During Colder Months?

One of the worries of some homeowners is that the tinting will make their solarium colder than usual during winter. That’s, in fact, the opposite because while window films cut down the heat gain in the room, it also helps prevent heat loss. In short, what window tints deliver is better temperature control. 


What Type of Window Tint Do You Need?

The type of window tint that you need heavily depends on the kind of glass your solarium is made from. For one, if your solarium is made from annealed glass, there are various types of window tints that you cannot use. Therefore, it is important that you consult an experienced professional about this as the wrong kind of tint may cut down the heat, but it can also shatter the glass. This can happen as certain window films hold a lot of heat that can cause the spontaneous shattering of annealed glass. 


Should You DIY the Installation?

No, you shouldn’t. You might think that you’ll be able to save some money by doing it yourself, but there’s so much you don’t know about window tinting that goes beyond just knowing what tint to apply. You should only allow a certified tinting company to do the installation. Anyway, the films you have access to as a consumer don’t match the quality that certified tinting companies can provide you. It’s also unlikely that you’ll be able to do an excellent job of installing the tinting, and you might even end up spending more as you’ll need an expert to redo it. 



A window tint film is a perfect solution for a solarium that needs heat reduction during summer and insulation in the colder months. However, you cannot just buy the first window tint you see and set to apply it yourself. This job requires expertise from the selection of the right window tint to the installation. Make sure that you only have a certified window tint company handle the installation of window tint on your solarium.
