Why I love having my tinted windows

Homeowners invest in curtains, blinds, shutters or various types of windows coverings to combat heat, glare and the damage caused by UV light. However, there is a more efficient and cost-effect strategy. Residential window tint is an energy-efficient option that provides a long list of benefits. Privacy, safety, protection and aesthetics are combined with lower energy bills. Plus window tints enhance comfort. To complete the job properly, it’s necessary to hire a professional window tinting installation company. The main reason most homeowners look into window tint is to lower energy bills. The average glass window allows the heat from the sun inside, which then affects the interior temperature. Window tint blocks most of the sunlight and heat, helping the home to remain cooler and reducing the workload of the air conditioner.

The size of the windows and their location may cause specific rooms to heat up or feel chilly. When the heat of the sun is blocked, these rooms tend to stay at a more consistent temperature. The air conditioner doesn’t need to run as often or as long. It uses less electricity. Glare from the sun can negatively impact productivity, activities and comfort. A glare on the television screen or computer monitor can restrict the view and affect work and recreation. Window tint reduces glare.  UV exposure through a window can be unhealthy, contributing to melanoma and other skin cancers. Modern window tints block 99% of UV rays. Fabrics of furniture, furnishings and rugs are less likely to fade. Windows are the typical entry point for break-ins. They are vulnerable to breakage and allow entry into the home. Although window tint doesn’t prevent forced entry, it works to hold the glass in place. It makes entry more difficult. This also stops shards from scattering everything. Accidents and natural disasters that lead to a broken window aren’t as great of a safety risk. There is less chance of injury.
