Chances are that when your windows were installed, you did not pay extra to have a tint applied to them. Now you may be wondering if it's worth adding a tint to the windows. You'll definitely want to know the benefits of residential window tinting before you make a decision.
Window tints are known to improve the energy efficiency of a home. This is due to how the window tint prevents heat from transferring through the glass. You'll find that your home stays cooler in the wintertime by blocking the rays from the sun, and preventing heat from leaving through the windows in winter to keep your home warm. A window tint can actually lead to some energy savings in the end.
You can also get UV protection by installing a window tint. While UV rays are known to harm your skin, you'll likely see other benefits to the furniture in your home. Direct sunlight that goes through a window tint will prevent furniture and flooring from fading over time. If you have a big window that gets a lot of direct sunlight, this may be a big concern for you when considering residential window tinting.
Worried about people looking inside your home? A window tint can make it harder for people to see what is happening inside your home and give you some additional privacy. This is especially true at night when it is very easy to see inside through your windows when the lights are turned on. If you live on a street with a lot of foot traffic, a window tint may be worth it for the privacy alone.
Window tints are also known to provide safety if a window were to break. This is because the film will hold the pieces of glass together, rather than have them shatter and fall to the ground. It can give you some peace of mind that you actually have some additional protection from impact damage that can cause a big mess with broken glass.
Window tints are also going to give your home a visually appealing look that helps your home look more modern than other homes. Window tints can add a shade of color to your windows to help them stand out in a good way. And if you want to change the color, you can always apply a new window tint down the road.
