How Window Film Can Save Your Life

There are various benefits that come along with installing window film for your home. The most common are saving on energy costs, reducing glare, and increasing privacy. Many people are not aware of the life saving benefits window film can offer. Here are a few to consider.

Security window film protects windows from shattering. This is especially useful during an earthquake and burglary. The film will help hold the window together during an earthquake or in the event that it is smashed. During earthquakes people are often injured by flying shards of glass from broken windows. The window film will prevent this by holding the pieces of glass together. The film will also assist in deterring intruders, because they will not be able to easily gain entry into your home.

Another life saving benefit is increased privacy. Privacy film prevents outsiders from being able to view the contents of your home, therefore making your home less likely to be burglarized. Intruders often “watch” their intended target before they attempt to gain entry. If they are unable to see the contents of the home, they often times do not have any desire to enter.

Lastly, window films block up to 99.9% of harmful UV rays. UV rays can cause sunburn, premature aging, skin cancer and cataracts. UV rays are also known for weakening the immune system. Blocking these rays can significantly help protect you and your loved ones from long term health issues.

Home Window Tint, Irvine, CA – Clear Window Film and Window Film For Skylights

Home Window Tint Irvine

For this home in Irvine, CA, we applied two different window films. In the living room, family room, den, and dining area we applied Huper Optiks Ceramic 70% and for the skylights we applied Exterior Neutral 40%

Huper Optik’s Ceramic 70% is a clear window film and appeals to people who don’t want dark window tint. It’s also popular for homes where Home Owners Associations (HOA) don’t  permit window tint. HOA’s worry that adding window tint will alter the aesthetics but adding an undetectably clear ceramic film doesn’t alter the appearance. Although the film is nearly clear, it blocks 99.9% of all harmful UV rays which are responsible for the fading of floors, furnishings and the leading know cause of skin cancer and premature skin aging, blocks 88% of infrared heat and 48% total solar energy.

For the skylights we applied Huper Optiks Exterior Neutral 40%

If you’re considering tinting skylights, there are many factors to consider like the type of glass, shape of the skylights and the type of film you plan on applying.

If the wrong film is applied to your skylights they will absorb too much of the sun’s radiation. If your skylights absorb too much heat it can cause stress on the glass and cause it to break, or crack and promote water leakage. Be careful when considering adding tint to your skylights and make sure you have an expert asses your skylights and recommend the right film. Here at Window Tint LA, we provide completely free consultations, we’ll come to you, bring you film samples and make the right recommendation for your skylights- consultations are completely free.

There are many benefits that come with adding window film to skylights:

1.) Protect Furnishing, carpet, hardwood floors, art work, and photos from fading.

2.) Reduce Glare

3.) Reduce Hot Spots

4.) Block All Harmful UV Rays

Anti Glare Film For Santa Monica Beachfront Home

The homeowners of this lovely beachfront residence in Santa Monica love the skylights and large windows that lighten and brighten their home; in fact natural sunlight is one of the defining characteristics of the residence. And of course they also love their view. But with so much sunlight coming into the interior, at times the glare made it difficult to enjoy their view, frustrating to work on a computer, and hard watch TV, especially in the late afternoon. In fact, when the sun was setting in the west, they simply had to keep their shades down. All that sunlight also led to hot, unpleasant interior temperatures.

In order to solve the glare and heat problem, we installed a ceramic window film to all of the residence’s skylights and windows.

If glare and/or heat are a problem in your home, call us today at (310)935-1748.

We offer completely free consultations and are glad to answer all your window tint related questions. We will come measure your windows, bring film samples (which are yours to keep) and help you understand the benefits of window film, which range far beyond heat and glare control. We’re open 7 days a week and are always standing by.

Reduce Energy Costs with Home Window Tinting in Santa Monica

Few people will argue that reduced electric bills and a smaller carbon footprint are anything but good. Saving cash while helping the earth is a double win, right? Right. So why do fewer than a million American homes have solar panels on their roofs today? It’s because of a few simple misconceptions and a slight gap in knowledge. But we can clear all that up quickly, and just maybe we can convince you that as you live in lovely Santa Monica solar panels aren’t just a bright idea… it’s almost dim not to truly consider them!

First lets talk about Santa Monica, California for a bit. This storied seaside city sees more than 300 days of sunshine each year, and thanks to the steady breeze blowing in off the Pacific Ocean, its skies tend be free and clear of the smog afflicting greater Los Angeles. The average income annual income in Santa Monica is $74,000 per household. The average residential electricity costs in the city are almost 10% higher than the national averages, with bills frequently exceeding $1,300 or more per year. And while this might seem like a random fact to include here, looking around the town will reveal that it doesn’t have many tall, broad-leafed trees… trees that might… block sunlight. (See where we’re going with this?)

Now let’s talk some about residential solar electric systems. Before the generous tax credit offered by the federal government (which can save you a few thousand dollars) and any state and local credits which may apply to you, the average cost of installing a residential solar system is around $10,000 to $12,000. Those credits may well bump it down below $8,000 in total cost. A properly installed solar system will last for at least 25 years, and now here is where we’re going to start turning up the heat:

Assuming an average solar panel system generates enough electricity to effectively remove a home from the grid (which at standard annual use of around 3,000 kilowatt-hours per year is entirely possible), and with an assumed electric bill of $1,300 per year, if you live in Santa Monica, you will pay around $34,500 for electricity over the next quarter century. That is easily quadruple the cost of installing solar panels on your Santa Monica rooftop.

Home Window Tint in Santa Monica

The entire process is pretty simple, by the way: contractors come to your house and chat about the weather (well, the sunshine, anyway) and take a look at your roof. You all agree solar panels are a great idea for your family and the team gets to work. Soon you have a series of dark, subtle panels secured to your roof with mounting racks, you have some wiring leading to an inverter that switches the collected DC (direct current) power into everyday useable AC (alternating current) power, and your electric bill starts to shrink at sunrise.

And if you want to think even greener for the earth and even leaner for your energy costs, consider taking other steps to reduce your use of power that will compliment your new solar array. Those same 300+ sunny days that mean it’s a great idea to get solar panels in Santa Monica also mean that residential window tint is simply a bright idea. Modern window films can block out a vast majority of the sun’s warming infrared rays, the sunlight that heats up your home and leads to use of the air conditioning and fans. As cooling costs are often the leading factor in your electric bill, if you can reduce your need to cool the home down thanks to window film, Santa Monica living will be even more affordable! And by the way, window tint also blocks out up to 99.9% of the ultraviolet light that can fade furniture and floors and damage your skin, and many window films provide security against break-ins and privacy against unwanted eyes, all without damaging your view out into the city.

Home Window Tint Film in Santa Monica

Home Window Tint Film in Santa Monica

Picture it: you install solar panels on the roof and start generating your own electricity and you apply window tinting film to the windows and cut down on your need for climate control. All the sudden, your Santa Monica home is almost off the grid most ever day of the year! And by the way, many cities have a pretty sweet offer: on those especially sunny days when your solar electric system produces more energy than your household uses, that power goes out to the larger grid, and you actually get paid for it. Yep, solar panels not only save you money, they might even make you some cash, too.
