Window films offer a multitude of benefits for the home, such as improved energy efficiency, more privacy, and reduced glare from the sun. It can even serve as an added decorative element in your home. If you’re wondering whether or not your home would benefit from tinted windows, here are 5 of the top reasons to get tinted windows for your home.
We discussed many of the energy-saving benefits of window tinting in this post. Essentially, tinted windows work to save energy by cutting out some of the natural sunlight that streams in through your windows, both absorbing it and reflecting it away from the home. This sunlight control makes for less heat entering the home, which in turns means that your air conditioner will not need to run as long to control indoor temperatures. Tinted windows, then, can be the perfect addition to the energy-efficient home.
As discussed in last month’s post, window tinting will also work to give your home privacy in a way that landscaping and fencing cannot achieve. Security films can allow you to see out of your home while preventing others from seeing in.
Window tints also protect you and your home from the dangers of broken windows. Most window security films are made with thick, heavy-duty polyester, which is bonded to the glass with strong adhesives. These films work to increase the strength of the glass and help it withstand the occasional blow from a stray ball or nearby tree branch. Moreover, a window film will help keep the glass of a shattering window in place, preventing shards of small bits of glass from entering the home, where they present the risk of being stepped on. It could even serve as an added precaution against intruders attempting to break in via the home’s windows.
Window tints can also add the perfect decorative element to your home. Tints are available in a variety of colors and textures, meaning there is a window tint to suit any home’s style. By working with different colors, tints, shades, and reflections, you can completely change the look of any room. Dynamic interior tinting can even change moods under different lighting conditions.
