If you are reading this blog, then you have probably been looking to give your windows an upgrade. Maybe they have shown signs of getting old, or they don’t feel like a satisfactory fit for your home. Fortunately, you have several great options for improving your windows. But you might be wondering if you really should replace your windows entirely or if adding window film will be enough. Here are some things to consider to help you make that choice.
Window tinting can do a lot for your home from the moment you have it installed. First, solar window film is incredibly beneficial for blocking out harmful ultraviolet rays from the sunlight. Many people don’t realize that UV rays can have a harmful effect on people and things even indoors. If you have ever heard warnings about wearing sunscreen inside, this is why. But window film can protect your belongings from fading and shield you from skin damage.
On the other hand, if you choose to have your windows replaced, you will probably see a few immediate benefits. If your old windows are drafty, then you could feel the difference, or you might notice more peace and quiet in your home as your new windows block out outside noise. But the most notable changes with window replacement come in the long term. In particular, new windows are more environmentally friendly and energy-efficient. This is because new windows have better insulation, which will help you save money on heating and cooling bills.
Room for Both
Of course, if you can’t decide, it might be better to choose both new windows and window film. After all, you might not enjoy the full effect of window film if your old windows are causing you problems. To a slight degree, window film also has insulation that can increase energy efficiency in your home. With new windows and window film that gives you safety and privacy, you can enjoy natural light in any season.
