Why do people Tint home windows?

Window tinting
Home window tinting is a low-cost, high energy-yielding home improvement project often overlooked. When the summer is in full swing, AC units struggle to keep homes cool and comfortable. If and ultimately, when air conditioners kick the bucket, replacing them is costly. Homeowners often overlook the impact house windows have on the downfall of air conditioning units.

The average air conditioner in homes is a 3-ton unit; this number equates to 36000 BTUs per hour. Windows that are “low-performing” allow 168+ BTUs per square foot per hour. Meaning the average window can allow upwards of 3025 BTU’s per hour. Furthermore, if a home has just 12 windows, it’s a safe be to assume the AC unit is overworked. Low-performance windows often cause a strain on AC units, increase energy bills, not to mention lead to a steep cost of repair when the A/C unit seizes to work. 

Stop Fading floors and furniture

House window tinting protects furniture and Floors from fading 

Fading furniture and floors is an all to common concern for homeowners and their pocketbooks. Faded hardwood can be expensive to repair and often require homeowners to replace sections of the floor, resulting in forever mismatched colors and even types of flooring. Furniture is just as susceptible to fading as hardwood floors. However, don’t panic too much because unlike glass that only protects against UVB, Window films protect against the more harmful UVA (the major contributor to fading and deterioration).

Quality Window tinting films have a unique UV inhibitor embedded into the adhesive (the sticky side of the film) that faces the sun that absorbs harmful UV Rays. Think of window film as SPF for home windows, although you never have to lather up again, because quality window films never need replacing.

Window tint for privacy
Standard glass, whether tempered or annealed, offers very little privacy, and dyed-glass is an all too permanent solution. For homeowners wanting the flexibility of removal, color selection, one-way films, and even dimmable films, home window tinting is a great solution to improve residential privacy.
