There’s no denying it now: the changing of the seasons is upon us. You’ve surely noticed by now that the nights are getting cooler, or flocks of birds headed south for winter. You might not have considered it, but this cooler weather makes fall one of the best times of year to install solar window films. Below, we will delve into why fall is the perfect time for window tinting.
Why window film?
Before exploring what makes fall the best season for installing window film, let’s give a brief overview of why you might want to look into window films in general. There exist a multitude of different kinds of films that might be suited to your needs. The two most popular are certainly security and solar films. Security window film is an outstanding supplement to any home security system. While it is by no means bulletproof or completely immune to breakage, it does make glass harder to break, which can go a long way to deter potential intruders.
Then there is solar window film. When it comes to this kind of window film, UV protection is the name of the game. It is especially effective at preventing light damage from fading your furniture or artwork. The fact that window tinting can actually end up saving you money is an added benefit. By blocking external solar energy in the summer and retaining internal heat in the winter, you can expect to see significant cuts in your utility bills. Add to this the fact that window films require very little maintenance, and you’ll see why they can be such an excellent investment.
Fall is the perfect time to have films installed on your windows due to the cooler temperature and lower humidity. You know how humid the summers in our area tend to be. When you have the temperature and humidity on your side, the curing process is much quicker. You might be wondering: why not spring? It’s certainly true that spring can be a great time to install window films as well, but the weather in fall tends to be far more cooperative, with less precipitation.
Installing window films this fall would be a great investment in your home. With our professional installation, you can expect your window film to last for upwards of ten years.
