Have you thought about having your home windows tinted to help with heat, glare or fading issues? Well, we wanted to share some information from an article we came across in Homerous recently that listed six reasons people use home window tinting. We wanted to list the four we see most often when working with homeowners.
- Save Money – By having tinted windows on your home you save money on cooling expenses. One of the key reasons rooms and homes in general heat up is due to sunlight. If you have a lot of direct sunlight coming into your home you’ll be spending more on cooling costs to counteract this. With tinting the amount of heat let in via sunlight is greatly reduced. This cuts down on AC usage and lowers your energy bills.
- Good For Your Furniture – By using residential window tinting you also increase the life of your furniture. Ultraviolet radiation damages your furniture by fading it. This fading effect is very strong and can affect fabrics, art, wood, and other materials. This can also make your home furnishing old before their time. Plus without proper tinting a standard non tinted glass window lets in up to seventy percent of the sun’s UV rays.
- Control the Light – With residential window tinting you have an easy to use method to keep your home from being too bright. A common response to too much light entering a home is to install curtains. However, curtains are a bit of a hassle to use. You have to open them whenever you want to look out and then close them to cut down on the brightness levels. With tinting you have no active effort involved and can easily look out while still keeping your light levels under control. Plus unlike curtains you don’t have to vacuum tinting.
- Health Reasons – There are several health benefits to using residential window tinting. Overall it improves the condition of your skin by reducing direct exposure to light which can dry and damage your skin. It also keeps your home cooler cutting down on the need for air conditioning; overusing your AC lowers the humidity of your home which can lead to sinus issues and dry skin. Lastly, residential window tinting can also help prevent skin cancer by reducing your exposure to UV rays.
