Window tinting is a great way to reduce the amount of UV radiation, glare and sun that enters your home through glass, whether it is glass windows or doors. It can also improve your levels of privacy and can look fantastic.
UV radiation is the major cause of the fading of curtains, carpets, furnishings, and fittings, meaning that your carefully chosen decorator items can look old and worn out far before their time. Window tinting reduces UV radiation by 99 percent, meaning that such items will stay looking new for far longer. Cutting out UV radiation is also great for people as it is a major cause of premature ageing and skin cancer.
Window tinting can also stop up to 80 percent or more of solar energy. This reduces heat and glare, and improves your living conditions. The window tint blocks the heat before it even enters the home and because the window tint has insulation properties, it also diminishes heat loss through glass. This adds up to savings on your energy bills. By reducing glare, computer and television screens will become much easier to see, and you may even reduce the levels of eye strain and headaches that you experience.
Window tinting is available in a range of colours, and it can even be totally clear. It is also available in different densities and heat rejection qualities. How much you notice the tint is up to you as some are almost unnoticeable, inside or outside the home. The tints are scratch-resistant and extremely durable so they will last a long time when properly installed.
Tinting the windows can also have a safety aspect involved. Safety or security films will retain any glass that has been broken in order to minimize the risk of being cut or pierced by stray pieces of glass.
What factors will decide the cost of a window tinting job? Ultimately the amount of glazing and glass that needs to be covered is the primary factor, along with the type of tint and what the window tint installer charges for labour. Tints that have special features such as anti-graffiti will typically cost more.
