It is officially summertime. The sun’s heat is at its peak, making both outdoors and even indoors a bit unbearable at times. Aside from cranking up the air conditioning, there is another option for protecting your home or business from the sun’s powerful rays—window tinting. Window tinting serves to protect your indoor environment from the sun, and also saves you money, protects your furniture, and much more.
Protects Your Furniture and Other Valuables
The damaging effects of the sun can harm your furniture, carpets, artwork, and many other materials and surfaces. With direct or even partial sunlight, these fabrics and valuables can fade quickly. Window films can disallow up to 99% of harmful UV rays and solar heat. Although curtains are effective at blocking out sunlight, fully enjoying the natural light is almost impossible. Since window films protect your furniture and other valuables, your valuables will last longer and save you money.
Lowers the Cost of Your Energy Bill
Window tint films are a great way to save money. The film reduces heat loss in the winter and heat gain in the summer, saving you money on electricity and fuel. By minimizing heat gain in the summer months, it lowers your use of air conditioning. Additionally, it lowers the loss of your air conditioning. So although window tint installation comes with a fee, your energy savings will compensate you in the end.
Sunlight nearly eliminates the need for using lights during the day, but too much light can be a nuisance. Direct sunlight often creates a glare, making it difficult to work on your computer or watch television. Window tinting helps to significantly reduce this glare, allowing you to work and relax in peace.
Many types of glass, especially home windows, are easily breakable. Strong winds, hail, or perhaps even a criminal, can shatter your window in seconds. Window films are available in varying thicknesses and special security versions. These films help hold the window glass together if shattered. With stronger, more durable windows, this can help prevent robbery, injury, and property damage.
Window tinting prevents outsiders from looking in. They help make your home or business as private as possible without forgoing any natural sunlight.
Enhances the Look of Your Home or Business
Window films can do more than just block sunlight; they have aesthetic purposes as well. There are many different film patterns available today, which can help tailor the windows to the look of your room or office. They can be reflective, frosted, or opaque for privacy purposes, while still giving the room a unique ambiance.
So decorate your home or office, while saving money, increasing safety measures and privacy, and prolonging the life of your furniture. Your first consideration when choosing a window tinting company should be quality, not price. High-quality tinting will last for years. Low grade tinting will just cost you more money in the long run. For more information on window tinting and the quality service we can provide for you, call Dedona Tint & Sound at (336) 851-1300.
