Why You Should Invest In Window Film

Windows are vulnerable to a variety of things, which is why it’s important to have this feature placed on your house.

We all see them, the vehicles with completely tinted windows. Yes, it can certainly be a style choice, but it’s a feature that offers safety above all else.

The Benefits of Residential Solar Tinting in Baltimore

In the best days of summer, the sun shines brightly upon Baltimore and provides a wonderful light that brings out the best in the city.  Of course, that same brightness can be difficult to handle when you’re sitting several stories up and reflections from the water or other buildings grow blinding.  Good residential window tinting can help protect you and your living space from this kind of light.

Invest in Energy Efficiency

Residential window tinting has one very simple job: reduce the amount of light that enters the space the window serves.  This is valuable in more ways than simply providing shade.  During the warmest, sunniest parts of the year, sunlight will heat an unprotected room to levels of heat far warmer than its natural temperature.  To combat this, the usual method is to use air conditioning or fans to keep the cool air flowing.  This costs energy—and you aren’t the only one thinking this way.  Electricity companies, especially in Baltimore, are willing to take out more from your bank account on these hottest days in order to pay for their increased energy production.  This leaves you with less money in your pocket.  Solar tinting reduces the energy cost by letting in less sunlight, and therefore less heat, meaning you use less energy to cool your home.  The cost savings are worthwhile.

Protect your Furniture

Your valuable assets are just as vulnerable to the sun as you are.  Window tinting can help prevent the worst of the sun from fading furniture.  The issue here is ultraviolet (UV) lighting, which is far more intense than the visible light by which we see.  UV light is powerful enough to almost literally burn away color from objects in its path.  Items in your windows, such as decorations, are the most susceptible because they receive the light first.  However, your expensive couches, tables, and even floors are at risk from UV light.  Putting in window tinting will reduce UV light entering your home—and as a result, protect your stuff.  Remember, you can’t simply paint over a sofa.  In most cases, sun-faded objects need to be replaced.

Privacy Matters

You probably don’t think of it very often, but a window works both ways.  You can see out, but others can see in, too.  Residential window tinting can block the view of overly-curious outsiders from looking in.  You deserve the privacy to enjoy your favorite TV show without someone across the street peering in at you.  The less they see, the better you feel.

As a factory authorized dealer of Vista® and LLumar® window films in Baltimore, we provide our customers with not only the highest quality installations, but the highest quality products. Our solar tinting is professionally installed with no mess, no hassle and minimal disruption.
