5 Residential Window Tinting Myths

5 Residential Window Tinting Myths

Residential window tinting provides many benefits for homes and homeowners. American Solar Tinting is here to debunk five residential window tinting myths.

Residential window tinting provides many benefits for homes and homeowners. However, many myths can float around the Internet in the digital age. American Solar Tinting is here to debunk some of these myths. Here are five residential window tinting myths. 

Window Tints Don’t Look Good Over Time

Window tints don’t bubble and discolor after a few years of facing the sun. Cheap, wrongly-applied window tints can look horrible over time. 

DIY window tint films from the hardware store might be to blame for this myth. These adhesives stick to windows and block out the sunlight, but they don’t compare to professionally tinted window treatments. When you hire American Solar Tinting to apply them, they will look excellent for years. 

Tinted Windows Will Make a Home Dark and Dreary 

Many people worry that tinted windows will make their homes appear too dark. However, tinting comes in various shades that almost look clear but still offer excellent benefits. 

The darker the tint, the more UV light becomes blocked. However, you ultimately control how dark you want your tint to be. The benefits of going darker with residential window tinting include the following: 

  • Your home’s interior will be less visible from the outside
  • It protects the sunlight from fading your furniture 
  • It can block out the sunlight to help evening or night-shift workers sleep better during the day. 

You should also know that you won’t have to worry about indoor plants not receiving vital sunlight. Lighter tints will still ensure that your plants receive enough sun if you have indoor plants. 

Residential Window Tinting Damages Glass

If applied professionally, residential window tinting enhances your glass. It won’t damage it. 

It’s Expensive

Residential window film, on average, never reaches $1,000. The cost of residential window applications depends on the square footage of your windows, with some residential window film installations being as cost-effective as $300. Also, window film makes homes more energy efficient, meaning that you save money on energy bills and heating and cooling costs in the long run. 

It Will Block Your View 

While window tints can block people from seeing the inside of your home, you will still be able to see the outside. It even reduces the glare and eyestrain to ensure a cleaner and crisper view.
