What is it?
At home window tint which, in the past was also called solar film, is a thin film layer that is added to your windows. This film is similar to car window tint and has a lot of the same benefits. This line layer helps to protect your home from damaging ultra violet sunlight rays and helps to control the heat pollution that is entering your home. In the past, these window films have been limited and unsightly. However, window films today are aesthetically pleasing and will, not only benefit your home, but look great in doing so.
Because energy costs keep going up in this country, anything that helps to curb these costs should be a welcome addition to your home. Home window tinting has the benefit of keeping harmful ultra violet rays out of your home, helping to keep your air conditioning bills lower. This tint can also help to keep your heating bills lower by adding an extra layer of insulation during the winter months. On top of this, window tinting, like in cars, can also add a layer of privacy and security to your home. This tint can make it harder for would be intruders to see inside.
Types of Tint
Home tinting comes in numerous, different types. While solar film is easily the most popular type of window film, it isn’t the only type. Solar film is the classic film type and will do the best job at blocking out harmful sunlight and insulating inside heat during winter months. There is also decorative film, which is used to give an aesthetic layer to your windows. This usually comes in frosted or etched film. The final film type is security film. Security film helps to keep glass in tact, should it break or be shattered.
If you live in a historical home, or just an older home, with original windows in it, window tinting could be a great option for you. While newer window glass has built in ultra violet protection, older, single pane windows do not. Because of this, sunlight coming in through your windows will certainly heat up your space and, in the winter, heat that you are generating inside, will be lost to the outside. If you do not wish to purchase all new windows, window tinting could be an amazing, cost effective alternative for you. And we are happy to install it!
