Residential Window Tinting
he benefits of residential window tinting are wide-ranging. Windows open your home to natural lighting, warmth and views of the outside world. Unfortunately, they also open you up to high energy costs, heat build-up, excessive glare, and the premature fading of interior furnishings. Tinting your home’s windows with window films allows you to bask in the sunlight, worry-free.
Cut Your Home Cooling Costs Up to 50%
According to the EPA Energy Star Buildings Manual in the United States, approximately half of a home’s utility bills are wasted by loss of heat and heat gain through untreated windows. Residential window tinting can significantly improve energy efficiency. With a thin, virtually invisible addition to your home’s existing windows, window films can help you save up to 50% on cooling costs.
Reduce Heat and Glare
Open your blinds, shades, or draperies and let the sunlight in. In addition to blocking heat, home window tint reduces glare by up to 87%, making it easier for you to watch television or work on a computer in the comfort of your home. Because window films are made with ultra-clear, distortion-free materials, you won’t even know it’s there.
Lessen the Effects of Harmful UV Rays
Most fabrics, furnishings and artwork can fade simply by allowing daylight to pass through an untreated window. Home window tinting with window films will block up to 99.9% of all UVA and UVB rays, helping to protect your family and preserve the color of your furnishings, fabrics and carpets.
Corrects Temperature Imbalances
Window films can help eliminate hot and cold spots within your home by using film that reduces heat gain coming through the glass in hot areas. This will create a more balanced temperature across the space and reduce the load on your air conditioning system.
Protect Your Home and Family
Glass can be a real hazard in the home when broken from accidents, storms, or break-ins. Safeguard your family and your property with safety films. This transparent but powerful barrier helps hold glass in place should an impact occur, and helps you defend against the unexpected.
