We recently came across an article on Builder Trend that detailed some common questions and statements about a home window tint retrofit and their answers. As the article mentions, many people view retrofitting home window film to your existing windows as a luxury home improvement, but this upgrade to windows can improve the comfort of your home and possibly even save you money.
With that being said, let’s jump in. Here are some common statements and questions and the answers we are summarizing from Builder Trend.
- My energy bill is too high. – Window tinting can lower energy costs. The insulating effect provided by the film prevents heat and cold from escaping homes. The savings will vary depending on factors such as the size of the home, the age and condition of the windows, and what part of the country they live in. For example, the warmer the climate and the older the home, the bigger the savings.
- This room is too hot to use during the summer. – In addition to saving energy costs, tinting windows can also make a home more comfortable by reducing the heat and the glare of the sun’s rays. Balanced temperatures mean rooms can be used any time, no matter how much the sun shines.
- The sunlight in this room is fading my furniture. – If your noticing negative effects of sun exposure on their furniture or hardwood floors, tinted windows can help. The estimated UV reduction on most window films is about 99%. This means tinted glass can almost completely eliminate harmful rays from the sun and protect their belongings.
- We never open the blinds because we like our privacy. – So, you like your privacy? No problem. Certain shades of tinted film can prevent others from seeing into your home behind the glass.
