Solar tinting isn’t just useful in the summer; the benefits that you get from solar tinting are the same for the cold months as well. However, in the summer solar tinting helps limit the amount of sun entering through the windows, but since the days are shorter in the winter you’ll see that the tinting provides efficiency in other ways. If the summer months have already passed, don’t forget that you can still benefit greatly from installing solar tinting in the winter.
One of the most well-known benefits of solar tinting throughout the year is its energy efficiency. Just as they help keep the hot weather outside in the summer, they also help keep the cold air out in the winter. Windows and door are notorious for being areas that allow air seepage. They are the two most common places to check when you feel a draft in a room. Solar tinting helps combat this issue by helping to regulate the temperatures inside a space. It does this by making it harder for light and warmth to escape from the interior. It therefore, helps keep heat in during the winter, which translates into savings as you won’t have to pump up the heat as high as your normally would with windows that haven’t been treated.
Ultra-violet light is just as harmful in the winter as it is in the summer. It not only causes furniture and other upholstered fixtures to fade faster than it normally would; ultra-violet light has also been labeled as a possible carcinogen. Ultra-violet light has been found to be a contributing factor to some forms of skin cancer. Limiting this type of light from entering your home or commercial space will benefit all who spend significant time living or working in that space. Light reduction also leads to a reduction in glare. This provides enhanced comfort and a more pleasant experience overall.
