How to Choose the Best Window Tint for Your Home

Not all window tints are made equal, so make sure you do your research and decide which window tint best suits your needs!

Tinting your home windows may seem as simple as just choosing how dark or light you want the tints to be. However, there are a lot of factors to consider when choosing a window tint for your home. Depending on what you are buying window tints for will affect which type of window tint you decide to purchase. Here are a few types of window tints to help you decide which is best for your home.

Personal Goals

Before deciding on a home window tint, first ask yourself what purpose you want the tint to serve. Is it more for aesthetic purposes? Do you want to reduce the glare that comes into your window? Is your goal to gain more privacy or protect your furniture from the sun? Figure out what exactly you want from your window tints so that you have a better plan.

Insulating Film

This window tint is designed to reflect the sun’s heat away from your home. This helps to keep the inside of your home a lot cooler, which will surely help to decrease some of those costly energy bills. Insulating film will also help to protect your furniture from the sun as well because too much sun exposure can cause your furniture to fade and wear out.

Reducing Glare

The main purpose of this window tint is to reduce the amount of glare that gets into your home from the sun. This helps to relieve some of that strain that is put on your eyes when you are watching television or using the computer. If you always seem to find a glare on the TV when watching your favorite shows, this window tint might be best for you.

Privacy Film

If you are trying to increase the amount of privacy in your home, then a privacy film is the best choice for you. This film gives off a frosted, translucent look that still lets natural light in but keeps people from being able to see inside of your home. Though it doesn’t block natural light, it still protects from some of those harsh UV rays as well.

Colored Window Tint

For someone that just wants a window tint to add to the aesthetic of their home, a colored or decorative window film is a great option. This is a great, cost-effective way to spruce up the look of your home’s exterior. You can even combine films together for a unique look that will still be cheaper than investing in stained glass.
