While curtains and blinds have become popular in homes over the past few decades, not many property owners are aware that they will be able to benefit more by making use of window film instead. Below are just a few of the benefits that you will get to enjoy when having window tinting installed throughout your home.
Reduce Energy Consumption
One of the main benefits of having residential window tinting installed is that it can help reduce your energy bills by up to 20%. Many types of window tinting have the ability to keep the temperature in your home at comfortable levels all year round, meaning that your heating system and air-conditioner will no longer have to work as hard as they did when you had curtains covering your windows.
Prevent Glare Inside your Home
Most homeowners and their families have experienced trying to watch TV during the day and not being able to see properly because of the amount of glare the sun is casting on the screen. This is not only extremely inconvenient; it can result in severe eyestrain and the development of headaches over time. When installing reflective window film, the glare will no longer be able to affect your TV viewing experience – unlike curtains that can never seem to close fully.
Reduce UV Exposure when Indoors
Many people don’t realize that they will still be exposed to harmful UV rays if they are occupied indoors – especially if they sit or stand close to a window. UV rays can not only cause cancer and other skin-related health conditions; over time, they will cause your flooring, furniture and other household items to fade or even rot. Residential window tinting has the ability to block out up to 99.9% of harmful UV rays without darkening the inside of your home.
Care and Maintenance is Easier
An aspect that most homeowners dread is when the day comes to wash or dry clean blinds and curtains. This takes a lot of time and effort. However, once window tinting has been installed, there will no longer be a need to deal with fussy curtains or blinds in order to maintain some level of privacy.
Improve Safety in your Home
Window tinting not only provides you and your family with an excellent level of privacy; it can render your home’s windows more durable as well. In the event of a window breaking, the film will hold the pieces together instead of allowing them to shatter all over and cause serious injury. This is especially beneficial in areas that experience severe weather.
