How window tint protects your home

4 ways Window Tinting Protects your Home

Winter can be a relaxing time for you and your family. It’s when you can feel comfortable in your home without having to turn the AC on blast at all times just to stay cool. People often see their electricity bills drop during winter, and it’s mostly because they don’t have to deal with the overwhelming heat of the summer anymore. However, even though the sun isn’t as bright and the air is cooler, it doesn’t mean that you shouldn’t consider window tinting. If you don’t see the immediate benefits of how window tinting can help your home to feel more comfortable, here are a few that we can show you.

 

Blocks UV

Even though the heat isn’t as intense, it doesn’t mean that UV rays aren’t penetrating through your untinted windows. This might become more of an issue during the colder months, as you will want to bathe in the sun inside your home, as opposed to avoiding it like in the summer. By having your windows tinted, you can still bathe in the sun in your house, feeling the warmth, but without the risk from skin cancer or sunburn. Additionally, window tints will help protect your furniture, wooden floors and rugs from getting damaged by the UV rays.

 

Reduces glare

Sun glare can be a very annoying and distracting thing, especially when you are enjoying a nice weekend afternoon show with your family. The reflected sunlight from the TV doesn’t only make it hard to see what’s on the screen, it’s bad for your eyes as well. It’s almost like looking directly at the sun for long periods of time. However, this won’t be an issue if your windows are tinted. Window films prevent screen glare almost completely, ensuring that you can watch your favourite daytime shows comfortably.

 

Regulates temperature

Untinted windows are the leading cause of heat gain during summer, and heat loss during winter. This is because untinted windows are where temperature exchange occurs. Without preventing this from occurring, you will be paying a lot more on your energy bills because your AC and heater will be working overtime to keep the temperature regulated. Tinted windows prevent these heat exchanges all year round, and it guarantees whether it’s hot or cold outside, your home will remain comfortable.

 

More energy efficient

The environment suffers enough, and by tinting your home windows, you can actually turn your home green! By allowing enough light in, you won’t have to turn on the light, even when it’s dimmer outside. This saves you money on one front and reduces your carbon footprint on the other. Additionally, by having an energy-free thermal regulator in a form of window tints, your home will be much more energy efficient. Saving you more money, and keeping every family member happy and safe.
