The key benefit most people understand about tinting home windows is that it can reduce energy bills. This is great, but how does it work? Window tint film options from 3M™ minimize heat loss during winter months and heat gain during summer months, which will help you save money on energy bills! The window film also helps to reduce the loss of air conditioned air during hottest months of the summer. This helps your home to be more energy efficient and the rooms comfortable for everyone, all without ever needing to really purchase and install new windows.
Tinting Home Windows Helps Protect Furniture – Each homeowner would like to have light fill a room without being forced to alter the view with closed blinds to keep the sun from damaging the sofa and chairs.
UV window tint can minimize the fading of fabrics, rugs, art and wood caused by the sun. If fading has been an issue in your home, stop running from room to room opening or closing window treatments as the position of the sun changes and get window film applied by a professional. Then it will be possible to enjoy the light without the worry for your possessions.
Window Film Helps Improve Safety and Protection – In addition to reduced energy expenses, window tint can add a layer of security and safety to your home. When a window that does not have window film applied is broken, the fragments of glass are sprayed into a room and pose a risk to personal injury. The resulting hole in the window also allows the elements to enter the home and damage your furnishings. However, a window that has been treated with a security window film will keep the broken glass in place and it does not enter the room. This will keep the elements outside. The window film also helps prevent the glass from breaking due to run of the mill bumps and bangs.
There is even a special line of security window film that is a thicker gauge film that provides improved protection to the residence against intruders, vandalism and projectiles.
