It’s no secret that home remodeling has been booming the past couple years. The dog days of Summer are here and most of us likely have a list of home improvements we are working on. In this article, we’re going to give you three reasons why implementing a high quality home window film should be on that list.
As our page on these products says, the benefits of home window film are wide-ranging. Windows open your home to natural lighting, warmth and views of the outside world. Unfortunately, they also open you up to high energy costs, heat build-up, excessive glare, and the premature fading of interior furnishings. Tinting your home’s windows with a quality window film allows you to bask in the sunlight, worry-free. Let’s learn how.
3 Reasons Window Films Are Great For Home Improvements
- Increased Home Comfort – Window films work to block excessive heat and glare from entering your home through the glass. Most homes have some windows that get a lot of sun throughout the day. In these areas of the home, there can be hot spots from the heat entering which is often accompanied by irritating glare. Often, in an effort to keep these areas of the home comfortable, your need to adjust your air conditioning. The problem then becomes that the home is often too cool in other areas where the sun is not shining in. By using window tint or film on these specific windows, you can reduce the heat and glare specifically where the problem lies without covering the window with a blind or drapery.
- Reduce Energy Costs – Continuing with the point above, if you have windows that are allowing excessive heat to enter the home, your air conditioning is likely having to work overtime to keep your home comfortable. All that extra running is costing you money. When you reduce the heat entering the home, your air conditioning will not need to work as hard to keep the home comfortable and you will save money on utility bills as a result.
- Preserve Floors, Furniture and Furnishings – Your home improvement list may include other things like new flooring, some furniture, artwork, etc. If that’s true, you want to be sure to protect those things from premature fading and sun damage. The primary sources of sun damage and fading are UV, Heat and Visible Light. Window tint and film works to reduce all three of these primary areas of sun damage. In fact, most films reduce over 99% of the sun’s UV rays which accounts for 40% of the total causes of sun damage.
