We have all been in a situation where it is freezing outside and we can’t seem to make the inside of our house warm. If the sun is shining, we open the curtains or close them as soon as a snowstorm occurs, thinking that will help trap heat inside. But what actually works?

One way to help keep your home warm this winter is by installing window tinting. Window tinting helps keep the heat in during the winter months, which can save you money on your heating bill. 

What is window tinting?

In short, window film is a barely visible thermal shield that doesn’t allow heat to escape your windows in colder weather and vice versa in warm weather. By being installed directly onto your window panes, it slows the energy transfer between the inside and outside of your home.

Window Tinting Insulation

By providing a barrier between the outside air and your home, window tinting keeps cool temperatures out and warm ones in – similar to how insulation works. Large windows are especially susceptible to temperature changes since glass is such a good conductor of heat. Not to mention the extra glare from the sun that can be intense.

An insulating window film will make your home more efficient 24 hours a day, 365 days a year, by retaining the heat inside. 

Tinting your windows will help prevent heat escape, saving you money on your energy bills. 

Sun Fading Damages:

Not only does it deflect up to 76% of solar heat, but it also blocks out 99% of harmful UV rays.  In addition, it reduces glare by up to 63% and actually helps retain heat inside during winter months. This helps create a more comfortable environment and protects your home from sun damage. To name a few:

  • Furniture
  • Carpets
  • Art
  • Technology devices

Many people use sunblock to prevent UV damage to their skin, but did you know that these same rays can also cause wear and tear on your home furnishings? Just because there are windows in your house does not mean that your furniture is completely safe from the sun’s harmful UV rays. In fact, it is quite the opposite.

By installing window film, you can reduce the amount of UV radiation that enters your home. 

Heat Control Consumption

Heating and cooling your home makes up a significant portion of your energy bill, approximately 48%. Window tinting helps you save money on your energy bills. If you are looking for a way to stay warm this winter, window tinting is the perfect solution. By tinting your windows, you can reduce energy costs and make your home more eco-friendly.

So if you’re looking for a more budget-friendly and energy-efficient alternative to window replacement: window tinting. By improving the insulation of your windows, you can improve the overall energy efficiency of your home – without breaking the bank.

Contemplate getting your home windows tinted sooner rather than later – even though you might think “there’s no sun in winter.” Window tinting regulates your home temperature year-round, including during colder months. The benefits of doing so are countless.
