Natural light has been shown to lift the spirits, and a breath-taking vista can inspire the soul. Sunlight also adds natural beauty any room, but left uncontrolled, that same sunlight can ruin your carpet and upholstery, increase your energy costs, and make rooms virtually unusable due to heat and glare. Blinds, sheers, and other window coverings can solve the problem, but they also restrict the beauty and benefits that natural sunlight provides. Window tinting allows you to enjoy the benefits of natural sunlight while managing its negative properties.
Sunlight is comprised of different types of energy: visible light, UV rays and infrared energy. Visible light is desirable inside the home, while UV rays and infrared energy are responsible for the negative qualities of sunlight associated with faded carpets and overheated rooms. Window tinting allows you to permit the desirable aspects of sunlight while blocking out UV rays and infrared energy.
Tinting your windows is a smart decision for many reasons. In addition to saving on the costs associated with premature replacement of carpets, it also reduces your home’s energy costs because tint can reduce solar heat gain in the summer and heat loss during the winter. Tinting your windows can help you realize savings similar to a window replacement, but without the large initial cost. Because tinting your windows allows your home to use less energy, you’ll also be doing your part to conserve resources for future generations.
