Seven Reasons to Get Your Home Windows Tinted
Tinted windows are skyrocketing in popularity in the new home building industry, and no wonder. Today’s products are head and shoulders above their predecessors in terms of aesthetics and functionality, and they are in high demand in all parts of the country. Here are seven great reasons why you should get your home windows tinted.
Energy Savings: Today’s window tinting products are engineered specifically to reject infrared light from the sun that causes undue heat in a home’s interior. By rejecting up to 97 percent of this light with the use of spectrally-selective films, you will save substantial amounts on your summer air conditioning bill.
Comfort: With markedly decreased heating from infrared light, your family will enjoy greater overall comfort in the home. You can read in the easy chair by the window any time of day without getting hot, and the kids will stop fiddling with the thermostat.
Protect your Furniture: Infrared light causes heat, but UV rays cause fading. When windows are tinted properly, they will reject 99 percent of UV rays: giving your furniture, carpeting, drapes, artwork, and other decorative and personal belongings a longer and more vibrant life.
More Privacy: Today’s window tinting products are still reflective on the outside, keeping peeping eyes at bay. However, they have low interior reflectivity: so you can fully enjoy the view from your windows at night.
New Technologies: If you’ve had tinting in the past but didn’t like its metallic content, today’s types use no-metal technology to give you the protection you want without the problems associated with metals. There is absolutely no interference with cell phone or wireless internet signals.
Beauty: Unlike their predecessors, today’s tinting films add to the beauty of a home rather than detract from it.
Value: In this difficult real estate market, any energy-saving home improvements add lasting value to a residential property. Having window tinting installed is a cost-effective, practical, and attractive way to reduce home energy costs and thereby make your house stand out from the pack.
