Problems with Residential Solar Tinting

Residential solar tinting has many benefits, and even the drawbacks can be remedied or avoided.

First, let’s discuss some of the problems you may have heard about residential tinting. One of the issues is that some companies don’t take the time to explain warranties to their customers. Customers who install solar window film on certain windows may void their warranty because of the amount of sun that type of window receives. But, a professional company will always walk you through process of residential solar tinting to make sure that you understand how everything works. In fact, at American Solar Tinting, we pride ourselves on our excellent customer service. The second issue some individuals have had is that they aren’t aware of the type of film they are using. Dark window film is great at blocking ultraviolet light, but it will also block out a great deal of natural light. This will make your room look darker, which will increase the need for more indoor lighting. Dark film will also absorb heat and transfer it into your room. But again, when you work with the right residential solar tinting company, you will be fully aware of all the pros and cons.
