Benefits Of Home Window Film?
The primary reason most homeowners choose home window tint is to save on energy bills. Traditional glass windows allow the heat from the sun to penetrate, raising the interior temperature significantly. With window tint, much of the sunlight and heat is blocked, allowing your home to stay a much lower temperature and reducing your need to constantly run the air conditioner.
Depending on which parts of your home get more sunlight and how big your windows are, you may find that certain rooms stay much hotter or cooler than others. When the heat of the sun is blocked, your home can stay at a consistent temperature more easily. This also reduces your energy use, since you no longer need to run the air conditioner in certain rooms to keep your whole home comfortable.
Glare from the sun can have a significant impact on your comfort and productivity. For example, glare on your computer screen or television can be irritating, and may even block your view completely, which affects both your work and your recreation. Window tint not only blocks the heat from the sun, but it also reduces the blinding glare that comes through at certain points in the day and obscures your favorite television show or computer screen.
Though it’s not something we usually consider, it is possible to get an unhealthy level of UV exposure from simply sitting in front of a window with a lot of sunlight coming through. Melanoma and other skin cancers are usually caused by UV radiation, which adds up over repeated exposure to sunlight. Because window tint blocks 99 percent of UV rays, you can have the peace of mind of knowing that you’re not exposing yourself to unnecessary UV damages inside your home.
Windows on the ground floor are a common entry point for burglars. They simply break the glass and unlock the door or climb through the window to gain entry into your home, which puts you in a position of choosing the aesthetic beauty of your windows or the safety of yourself and your family. While window tint can’t prevent forcible entry into your home, it does hold the glass in place longer and make entry more difficult. A few extra seconds could be enough to alert you or give your alarm system time to contact authorities, and it may even be enough to deter a thief altogether.
As we discussed, window tint has the ability to hold glass together and keep shards from scattering everywhere. Along with preventing a potential burglary, this benefit can also help with innocent accidents and natural disasters. Whether your home was hit by a severe storm or a window was broken by a poorly aimed baseball, window tint will keep glass from ending up all over the room and causing injuries to you or your family.
Window tint is water resistant on its own, and it’s also available with a scratch-resistant coating. With these features, your windows won’t get a buildup of fingerprints and water spots that require constant cleaning (and often streak). The result is less work for you, along with beautiful, crystal clear windows.
Keep in mind that different window tint films have different properties, so be sure to discuss your needs with your installer and find out how often each type of film should be cleaned.
Many types of window films are available, with features ranging from additional UV protection to a tint that limits the view of your home from the exterior. If you’re looking for a little more privacy from people in the street, the right window film can shield the view from the outside and give you a better sense of privacy and comfort inside your home.
There are many improvements you can make to your home to enhance its curb appeal and improve its value, but window tint is a small investment for a major payoff. The right home window tint not only gives your home a sleek look, but also many inherent benefits that will be a selling point in the future. Whether you’re updating aspects of your home or taking on add-ons and full renovations, window tint is definitely worth considering.
How Window Film Saves You Money
Keeps Heat Inside In Winter
Did you know that 25-30% of residential energy usage in winter is due to heat loss via windows? That means almost a third of your utility bill is due to heat escaping from your windows. Window tinting helps prevent this heat loss. It keeps the heat inside your house and, as a result, causes you to use your heater less. This means that window tinting helps reduce your energy bill over winter. This will save you a great deal of money.
Keeps Heat Out In Summer
As window tinting keeps heat inside your house in the winter, it also helps keep heat out during summer. Window tinting for your home blocks UV rays and heat from entering your house. Thanks to this window tint, you won’t have to run your AC as much during the summer. This will help you save money and prevent excessive usage of your AC unit. Decreased usage of your AC unit will also help you save money as this will increase the AC unit's lifespan.
Cheaper Than New Windows
If you’re experiencing a great deal of heat loss or gain due to your windows, purchasing new energy-efficient windows is a common recommendation. However, purchasing new windows can be extremely expensive. The high cost of buying and installing new windows will typically not give you a return in your investment for 10 or more years. Window tinting is a much cheaper energy-efficient option. You can cut back on your energy costs while not spending an arm and a leg on it.
Protects Furniture And Carpet
As the summer sun glares into your house, its harsh rays are slowly damaging your furniture, carpet, rugs, and other furnishings throughout your house. In fact, the sun’s UV rays account for 40-60% of the damage to your furniture over time. Window tinting protects your home’s furniture by blocking the sun’s UV rays. Some window tints can block up to 99% of the UV rays. That means your furniture will remain intact for much longer. You won’t have to spend money on replacing a faded couch every 5 years. This will be a great cost saving for you.
Pays For Itself
Window tinting is a great energy-efficient option that has a high rate of return on the investment. In fact, in most situations, the energy savings from window tinting your house will pay for its cost within 3 years. This is a great investment. As mentioned earlier, purchasing new windows would take at least 10 years to break even. You'll have an additional 7 years worth of savings, thanks to these energy efficient window tints.
