Many people consider window tinting something that adds to the aesthetic value of your home, but does little else. People associate window tinting with cars, and the movie industry has built up an assumption in our mind that tinted windows are for FBI, celebrities, and the mafia. Therefore, it is often surprising for people to find out that window tinting can be done in homes and offices as well, and it has a whole host of practical benefits. Modern homes value natural light, and thus many home designs involve a lot of glass windows. This is when window tinting especially comes in handy. In this article, we will address a few major benefits of home window tinting.
Maximize your budget.
Paying a little for window film can save you a lot of money in the long run. A great feature of window tinting is its ability to reduce your energy bill at the end of the month. Solar window film limits the heat and UV rays coming into your home while still allowing you to enjoy the beautiful light. That way, your cooling system won’t have to work so hard to cool your house in the summer, and during the winter, the heat won’t escape as easily. You don’t have to buy new efficient windows for your home – all you have to do is apply film to your existing ones! Then, you can take your saved energy costs and spend it on something else.
Protect your home furnishings.
It takes time to pick out the perfect furniture that looks great and is practical too. Why waste the effort by letting it fade out with the sun? Apply window tints to make your furniture last longer. You won’t have to close the blinds to protect your furniture anymore. Go ahead and enjoy the sunlight without worrying about damaging your furniture, carpeting, artwork, flooring, and other knick knacks.
Safeguard your skin from dangerous UV rays.
On a bright sunny beach day, you’d be sure to slather on some sunscreen before hitting the water. But would you put on sunscreen before you spend a day reclining in your living room? Most people don’t fully realize how dangerous UV rays can be, even while you’re indoors. Glass does not keep these harmful rays outdoors, and it will find a way in. With window film, however, you can block up to 99.9% of dangerous UV rays, leaving you to enjoy the lovely natural light and warmth that the sun offers.
Keep glass from shattering.
There is always a chance for your windows to break, whether it is due to an attempted robbery or a baseball gone astray. Window film helps to reinforce your windows so that even if they break, it is less likely for the glass to shatter everywhere and injure the people inside. Film can be especially helpful in storm-prone locations or areas where vandalism is unsurprising.
Natural light can be absolutely lovely, and can really upgrade the look and feel of your home. That being said, it can also be annoying when you are working or binge-watching Friends. The bright light can result in a glare across your screens, which can be not only irritating, but painful for your eyes. With window film, you can have natural light without glare, so you can sob over Rachel and Ross living their best lives.
Enjoy your privacy. One of the reasons to have a home in the first place is to have a private space of your own. Sadly, your big beautiful windows may get you a little bit more company than you’d like. With window tints, you can protect the inside of your home from prying eyes, while still letting the pleasant light inside.
Earn some style points.
When all is said and done, window tints can add to your home’s aesthetic value. There are loads of practical benefits, but this one is just a bonus. If you love the look of stained glass windows but hate the price of purchasing them, window films may be the answer for you. You could even get the frosted glass effect for extra privacy as well. Many people opt for dark tints to look like high-end windows. Yes, it’s really that easy to instantly upgrade the curb appeal of your home. Who knows – if you decide to sell, it may get you a higher price!
