5 Reasons People Tint Their Home Posted on May 31, 2016June 2, 2016 by Betsy K Many people are familiar with window tint for cars or even for the windows of commercial properties, but they are not familiar with the application of window tint for the home. Applying a high quality window film to your home’s windows offers many benefits. Here are the top 5 reasons people apply window film to their home. 1.) Increased Home Safety Security Window Film increases your safety. Security film is designed to prevent glass from shattering if a flying object hits it or if burglars attempt a break-in. Most home burglaries involve forced entry through a window or glass door because, traditionally, glass is a property’s weakest link. When security film is applied, it acts as a shield holding a pane of glass together and preventing it from shattering in the event of a break-in attempt, a debris impact, or even an earthquake. The safety and security of your family is not a place to cut corners; we apply only the best, highly-tested security films. Call us today to find out more. 2.) Protect furnishing, floors, artwork, and photos UV Rays and heat from direct sunlight damage your possessions, such as upholstered furniture and paintings, causing them to fade and discolor. Window tint protects these and other valuables by blocking 99.9% of the sun’s UV rays and reducing the Total Solar Energy entering through windows. Window film will reduce heat and glare, and will block UV Rays. 3.) Heat Reduction Adding window film to your home windows and glass doors will help reduce overall interior heat, mitigate hot spots, and increase comfort. Depending on the film you apply, you can block 40-98% of infrared heat. 4.) Reduce glare Adding Window Film will reduce excessive glare. Too much light can make your home too bright for work, relaxation, reading, and and watching TV. By adding window film, you can reduce glare significantly. 5.) Enhanced Privacy Adding window film can give your home privacy by blocking the view of those looking in while still affording you a natural view looking out.
