Home Window Tint Should Be Installed in Every Home
There are many benefits of home window tint, also known as solar window film, which is applied to the exterior side of windows. Installing home window tint is not done for a decorative motive, like it is with decorative window film that is applied inside the house. Instead, the purpose of solar window film is to deflect the direct sunlight. There are a number of reasons that you might want to do this . . .
Defend the Health & Comfort of You & Your Family
Excessive exposure to direct sunlight is just bad for you. It can cause deterioration of the skin which leads to premature aging. It can also cause dry skin which involves itchiness and rashes, not to mention the increased chance of skin cancer.
Home window tint blocks 99% of the ultraviolet light that causes such damage. It is a good idea to control your exposure to sun as much as possible. Save the sunlight exposure for doing fun things outside. Protect your home from the vicious rays.
Protect the Interior of Your House
Sunlight that comes into the house is phenomenal for fading carpet, drapes, and furniture. The heat from it can also damage electronics and digital items and cause wood to warp.
In addition to its blocking power, solar window film can passively reflect and absorb up to 70% of incoming solar heat which keeps it from entering the house. Don’t put up with damage from “natural elements” inside your home. Protect your material items, keep them in excellent shape, and make them last longer.
Improve Finances (& Relationships) by Conserving Energy
Does your home life consist of constant arguments over the utility bills? Whoever is in charge of paying the bills can be a real nag when it comes to outrageous energy bills. Nobody likes to be told not to turn on the air conditioner when they are really hot. Home window tint is the solution!
Solar window film decreases the heat that comes in from the outside, which makes it easier and cheaper to keep the house cool in the summer. It also has an insulating effect that will keep the heat in the house during the winter, which will drastically decrease your heating expense.
DIY Home Window Film is less than half the price of having it professionally installed. Studies have shown that the electrical cost savings with installing window film is 2-3 years if you install window tint yourself. The payback period doubles to 4-6 years if you hire a professional installer.

Make Your Home More Attractive
While the primary purpose of solar window film is not a decorative function, it can make your home look better from the outside. Curb appeal is important to most homeowners. When decorating the inside of your house, you are not going to use curtains that don’t match in one room. So, why would the outside of your house show different colors of curtains?
Home window tint will block or obscure the view of the things that are inside the house for the exterior (depending on its reflectivity). Solar window film also comes in many colors and shades as well, so it can complement your home’s style.
With a 15 year lifespan for solar window film, and a payback period of only 2-3 years, home window tint should definitely be considered the first step to improving privacy, your health, and home energy conservation.
Guard Your Privacy
Privacy matters, but why would you want to keep your shades pulled down all the time? Home window tint ensures privacy during the day, and it doesn’t block your view of the world!
Home window tint comes in many different types. If you want to protect the privacy inside your home, choose a tint with a higher reflective rate. That way, you can see out, but you can’t see in during the day. At night it does not ensure as much privacy, so it is good to close the blinds at night after you’ve enjoyed the view all day!
