Window tinting or filming was first introduced as a home improvement option years ago, but new technology and innovative improvements have completely redesigned the way in which you can protect your home. Today, the investment of a high quality film for your home or office’s glass surfaces can provide a number of benefits. From saving on monthly energy bills to reducing the chance of a break-in, film on your windows quickly pays for itself. As a home or commercial property owner, you can gain many advantages if you simply choose this option before the summer ends.
Window film placed across the property windows can dramatically reduce the amount of heat allowed into your home or office during the day. As a result, your HVAC system can work more effectively, reducing your monthly energy bills. With temperatures hitting 30°before 7:00 am, you should not miss any opportunity to keep the heat out of your home and your comfort levels high.
Though new and improved film options are lighter and brighter, they can still prevent approximately 80% of outside heat from making its way inside your property. For this reason alone, thousands of home and commercial property owners across the continent have had film installed on their windows.
Sunlight itself does not cause any health problems or fade your furniture. Rather, it is the invisible radiation, also known as Ultraviolet Radiation, that causes these problems. Films installed on your glass surfaces can block up to 99% of UV radiation, effectively making it impossible for your furniture to fade due to an open window.
In addition, you no longer need to worry about UV radiation causing sunburns, skin cancer, or premature aging while inside your property. Although the film cannot follow you outside of your home or office, you deserve to feel comfortable and happy while indoors. This type of new technology can make a building’s interior pleasant for anyone.
At least 50% of the sun’s glare is reduced due to the placement of certain films on your glass surfaces. The darker the film, the better the glare reduction and more effective the protection is from the sun. Window filming can thus increase productivity and comfort inside a property by relieving the frustrating glare of the sun. With the proper coverage, you can present business proposals, watch TV, or simply sit on the couch and read a good book in relative peace and quiet.
By significantly reducing the amount of heat inside the property, you dramatically decrease your monthly energy bills over time. The easier it is for your HVAC system to keep your home cool, the more your energy costs will fall each month. Only a month after installing the film, you should expect your electric bill to reduce by 20%. You not only save a substantial amount of money, but you can also completely recover the investment of filming within the first year.
