Did you know that severe sun through a window can cause damage to electronics, fade furniture, and even cause wood to warp over time? Damage to your home or commercial space could end up costing you big money, but window tinting can help keep your home or business in pristine shape. It can also severely lower utility bills and add a nice curb appeal!
What’s not to love about window tinting? Let’s dive into just how much it can help you save energy and money.
Tinted or mirrored window films block unwanted heat but reduce visible light and darken interiors. A great solution to this problem is a transparent, almost colorless window film that offers the best ratio of visible light transmission to heat rejection. Window film is a thin layer of polyester and metal that can be applied to existing windows on any building. Depending on the look you want to achieve, you can determine the thickness of the film you prefer.
Window tinting and film can also greatly reduce your carbon footprint with the reduction of energy output and consumption to help save energy and money. When your residence or commercial building is using less energy resources to heat or cool rooms, you are reducing your carbon footprint and making a step towards a greener environment.

When the sun hits a window that has a film on it, it can reject up to 85 percent of the sun’s heat, depending on the window film. This means that all tinted windows are much better at solar rejection and can improve your space’s overall comfort level. It also reduces any energy bills you might have; therefore, saving energy and money. This is because the window film is doing a lot of hard work for your home, and your heaters and air conditioners won’t have to work as hard.

Window film/tinting is also a great cost-saving alternative to replacing all your residential or commercial windows.
