How To Reduce Glare and Heat Entering Your Home With Home Window Tint

A big appeal to certain homes is the view, take this beautiful penthouse on Wilshire blvd as an example. The homeowners said the view is what attracted them the most. But despite the breathtaking views, it was difficult for them to sit an enjoy an afternoon in their living room because of the excessive sunlight.  With big windows, you have a lot of sun coming in during the day, that creates hot spots and glare making it very uncomfortable to be in the room when the sun is out. Additionally, UV entering the home damages furniture and flooring. Adding home window film will block heat, reduce glare, and block 99.9% of UV rays.

There are many films on the market, some films contain dye agents that physically stop light by getting in its way. Unfortunately, window films with dye tend to fade or turn purple over time eliminating any benefit they once offered. If you put on polarized sunglasses and look at worn out dyed window film you’ll see ribbons of color, revealing where the dye material is gone. Plus, because the dye agents in the film can’t distinguish between different wavelengths, they block visible, near-infrared and ultraviolet waves equally. Ideally, you want a film that lets in visible light without sacrificing your view, but stops infrared ray which cause heat, and UV, which  damages furniture and floors. Dyed films are old technology and tend to be less expensive than higher quality ceramic films.

For this penthouse located in the 90024 are of Los angeles we installed Huper Optiks ceramic 60. The film is dye free and metal free–it won’t fade, turn purple, or bubble.  The ceramic coating helps stop heat and provides a natural view out which was important for the homeowners of this Wilshire penthouse. We applied Huper Optiks ceramic 60 which allows for visible light to pass but blocks 99.9% of UV light and 60% of solar heat coming through the windows.
