Home Window Tinting FAQ

Can you tint the windows of a house, or is window film only for cars?

Window tint is not just for cars – there are many specialty window films for homes and businesses, too. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 25 to 35% of energy consumed by homes and commercial buildings is due to inefficient windows. The California Energy Commission estimates that roughly 40% of a typical building’s cooling requirements are due to solar heat gain through windows. Many home owners add window film because they’re interested in reducing heat, stopping the bright glare, and blocking UV rays which are a main contributor to fading of floors and furniture. Window Film is a great option because it blocks heat, 99.9% UV rays, it reduces glare and because it doesn’t cost nearly as much as replacing windows.

Will adding window tint help block heat?

Yes, the most popular films for homes are Huper Optik’s ceramic films which can reduce the transmission of solar heat by as much as 80% or more.

Will the window film turn purple like it does on some cars with tint?

Some car tint is made with dye, metal alloys, or a combination of the two. Over time, the dye fades and turns purple and alloy metals corrode—it’s a natural process, but one that leaves windows looking unpleasant. We do not apply automotive or low quality films to homes or offices. The films that we use for residential and commercial applications are dye- and metal-free films or Huper Optiks Drei window film. Huper Optiks Drei is the best performing film in the world today; it’s dye-free and it contains precious metals including gold and silver which don’t corrode with time.

Why are Huper Optik ceramic films the most popular films for homes?

Huper Optik’s ceramic films are the most popular films used on homes because they’re free of dyes and alloy metals.  Cheap, low quality films contain dye that eventually fade, turn purple, crack, peel, and bubble. Ceramic dye and metal free films never fade, discolor, or bubble.

What types of home window film do you carry?

Frost Window Film

What are dye and alloy metal free films and why should I consider them?

They’re films that are free of  dyes and metals. Dye and alloy metal free films will never fade, discolor, or corrode over time, which is very important when you’re applying film the home you love. You will spend many years living in your residence, so you want to make improvements that will last and increase comfort and value.

Is window film expensive?

Adding window film is a much cheaper option than replacing windows. Window film helps block UV rays that damage furniture, flooring, and artwork, it also blocks heat and reduces glare. The price for window film varies; some are very inexpensive but as the old idiom goes, “You get what you pay for.”  The cheaper films are not as effective as good quality films, and some cheaper films turn purple and bubble over time. With higher quality film you will notice they actually work as your home is more pleasant and your energy bills go down.

How much does window tinting cost?

There are several factors that play a role in the price of adding window tint to your home. For example, is there film already on your windows that need to be removed? What type of window film are you considering? Size of windows? Small or large panes? If you’re interested in adding window film, call us to discuss your project.
