You've heard of window tinting for your cars, but did you know you can get your home's windows tinted too? Here are just some of the many reasons why you should window tint your home.
When the sun beats in your windows during the day, it heats up your house. During the warmer months, this causes your air conditioner to work even harder to keep your house cool, and that equals higher energy bills. When you install window tinting on your home windows, the sun doesn't have as much of an influence on your temperature. You can save up to 40% on your utility bills by tinting your windows, which is better for your wallet and the environment.
Protection for your furniture
The sun's ultraviolet rays penetrate through the windows of your home. Prolonged exposure to these UV rays can cause your furniture, rugs, carpets, and upholstery to fade over time. Many homeowners spend sunny days with the blinds closed to reduce the exposure. The window tint blocks those rays so you don't have to worry about your furniture fading prematurely.
Protection for your skin
Those UV rays aren't just bad for your furniture, they're bad for your skin too. Believe it or not, you can get a sunburn while sitting on the couch if you're close enough to the window. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, UV radiation is the leading cause of non-melanoma skin cancers and a frequent factor in cases of melanoma. Windowing tinting can reduce up to 99% of UV rays and protect your skin.
Window tinting can also help protect your home. More often than not, intruders break a window when they want to forcibly enter a house, and the window tint is able to hold the glass in place so it is less likely to shatter. This can also protect you during severe storms that might break a window without tint on it.
Finally, window tinting helps reduce glare that can come into your home. You know how much this would help if you've ever tried to watch a movie in the middle of the day and you couldn't see because of the glare. Or maybe standing in that one spot in the kitchen is unbearable during dinner because of the glare off of the refrigerator.
