Is Tinting Home Windows A Good Idea? Have you ever felt the heat at home, or looked at your high electricity bill and considered residential window tint? Tinting your home windows has several amazing benefits including; keeping you comfortable in a cool home, cutting out harmful UV rays that can damage your skin and furniture, helping to keep your electricity and utility bill manageable, as well as add a layer of privacy to your house!
What are the benefits of residential window tint?
There are several ways that tinting your home can help you save money, give you peace of mind and help you and your occupants beat the outdoors year round.
Add Privacy to Your Home
Residential window tinting is a great way to keep wandering eyes out of your home, giving you peace of mind and an additional sense of security. Our flat glass window tint options allow you the option to darken your windows, or add a reflective tint to create a mirror like effect on the other side. Using a reflective tint will allow you to see through your windows from the inside, while reflecting like a mirror from the outside. Adding an extra layer of privacy to your home is a great way to protect your family and belongings!
Keep Your Home Cool & Comfortable
Tinting your windows at home is a good idea because it will help cut out heat as well! Similar to automotive window tint, our ceramic window film will drastically cut down the amount of IR heat that is allowed in your home. IR heat, abbreviation for infrared heat, is the heat that you feel on your skin coming through your windows. By rejecting UV rays and cutting down the IR heat, your home will stay cooler. An additional benefit is that blocking harmful UV rays not only will help protect your skin, but your furniture as well. Depending on the material it's not uncommon for furniture like couches, chairs and beds that are constantly exposed to sunlight though windows to wear faster than those located in a darker area of the home.
Lower Your Utility Bills
In Texas especially your electricity bill can get very high, very fast, especially during the summer months! With each year bringing in more triple digits days in San Antonio it's tougher to keep your home cool. The more you run your fans and air conditioner at home to beat the heat, the higher your energy bill gets. When you tint your home windows and cut down on the UV and IR heat rays coming into your home you're able to keep your home cooler which will make it easier for you to give your ac a break, and save on your monthly bill.
