Three clear benefits of installing residential window tinting

Posted on

When you need a way to stop excess light coming into your home, then you could choose to install blinds or perhaps keep the curtains closed most of the day. While these methods of protection do have some value, there is a more effective way of keeping the light level in your home at a level that suits you.

Why not consider the benefits that residential window tinting can bring? Instead of struggling to relax or watch television because of the incessant glare coming through the window, you could opt to fit residential window tinting film and start enjoying your home no matter how sunny it may be outside. Here are three other reasons that you might decide to fit residential window tinting in your home.

1. Window tinting lowers energy bills

While glare from the sun is often a problem, it is frequently the heat that homeowners notice first. The increase in heat levels as the sun shines directly into your windows can lead to a build-up that can only be dispelled by constantly running your HVAC system to cool the room. This generates bills that most people would rather avoid. Residential window tinting will often rapidly pay for itself with reduced energy bills as the tinting blocks the light and heat from the sun.

2. It Reduces health risks

Most everyone is aware of the damage to the skin caused by exposure to the sun. However, not everyone realises that you are not only exposed to UV radiation when you are outdoors but that it can also be a problem when you are at home sitting by the window. The untinted glass will let the UV rays pass through the window and reach your skin potentially causing skin cancer over time. Once you have residential window tinting film installed, you will be protected from 99% of the UV radiation and you can comfortably enjoy spending time in your home. 

3. It adds better home safety

Residential window tinting is accomplished by placing a film over the surface of the window. In addition to reducing glare and stopping UV radiation, the film performs the obvious function of holding the glass together. In the event of the window pane being broken in an accident, you will no longer be faced with sharp shards of glass flying everywhere and becoming potential hazards. The glass will be contained in one location where it can be cleaned up at your convenience.
