The general public perceives window tints to be a purely aesthetic feature that brightens the interiors of your living space while still allowing a view of the world outside. On that note, a sun-lit room can enhance the look of your space, but too much heat entering your home can increase your energy bills and even fade your furniture.
High exposure to sunlight also leaves the residents vulnerable to UV rays, glare, and a lack of privacy. In that regard, installing window tints may be a cost-efficient and effective solution to the problem.
Many may think that window tints are in conjunction only with cars or commercial buildings, but its benefits can be applied to enhance the appeal of your home. After all, more and more home-buyers and homeowners are falling in love with the idea of sun-lit rooms, so investing in high-quality window tints will make it possible for you to enjoy the sparkling seasonal frontage without the potential risks that come with regular windows. To that end, here are some benefits this window treatment option can offer to your house:
Benefit #1: Increased Security and Privacy
The most obvious benefit is the increase of privacy that window tints provide, which allows homeowners to go about their daily routine without any worry of unwanted, prying eyes and without having to keep your blinds closed all day. The best part is while it keeps the outside world from peering into your home, you can still have an unobstructed view of the great outdoors.
Another benefit is the added security. Window tints discourage intruders or burglars from entering your home. Windows or glass panels on doors are especially vulnerable to breakage, which many criminals may take advantage of. Therefore, having durable and shatter-resistant windows can help to deter potential danger from strangers. Furthermore, it protects you from natural disasters like hurricanes or storms as any small crack in the glass remains in place, preventing any shards from causing any further damage.
Benefit #2: Increased Heat Rejection
Window tints act as an excellent alternative for insulators as they keep the heat from seeping into the windows and spilling onto your home while preventing heat loss during the winter season. They also regulate the temperature of homes, especially when you consider how some rooms are hotter or colder than others, making your heater or cooling systems work harder than usual. This allows homeowners to save money on their heating and cooling bills, making it a cost-effective investment in the long run.
Benefit #3: Increased UV Protection
You may just be relaxing by the window on a sunny day, thinking that it’s okay to lounge for extended periods, but did you know that it’s possible to get a sunburn while you’re in the comfort of your own home, enjoying the AC? UV rays are powerful enough to enter through the glass and cause UV radiation exposure, which can worsen into skin disease or cancer to some. To that end, installing home window films filters out approximately 90% of the sun’s harmful UV rays, protecting you and your furniture from taking any damage.
Benefit #4: Reduced Glare
When you’re hoping to watch some morning news or a mid-afternoon drama, the glare from your non-tinted, living room windows may block your TV, laptop, or mobile screen with the reflection of sunlight, car headlamps, or street lights. Window films, on the other hand, allow you to enjoy your time off without the annoyance of sun glare.
