Buying new windows for your home or office is always a smart investment. Once installed, your residential or commercial space will begin to improve its energy efficiency with substantial savings in heating and cooling costs. However, there is one more thing you can do to add to a growing list of benefits that come along with new windows. Window film is a great, affordable, and efficient solution for your windows’ improved security and protection features. Here’s how window film (or window tinting as it is commonly known) works, and what you can expect from it in return.
Window Tinting – It’s All about Protection and Safety
When window film is applied to your residential or commercial glass surfaces, you’re actually meeting two objectives. First, window tint blocks potentially harmful UV rays and unwanted heat, which can fade your carpet, floors, or furniture. These aesthetic problems can be easily overcome with a proper window film installed in your home or business. Second, window tinting can be your most trusted ally in a worst case scenario you may face when your glass breaks. Thanks to window film, your broken glass will be held and retained in place keeping those important to you safe from dangerous razor sharp pieces of glass. Instead of hundreds of extremely harmful pieces of glass flying all around your living or working space, you’ll have to deal with fewer pieces of broken glass. In addition, window tinting can be a great way to discourage thieves or vandals from your property. So, window tinting is a true win-win for all residential or commercial property owners.
How then do you choose the most suitable window film for your specific needs?
Sun or Security
Window film and window tinting eventually comes down to the two basic types of window films: solar control films to block heat, glare, and to slow down energy transfer coming in and out of the home or building; safety and security films to increase the integrity and strength of glass. If too much sun and heat are among your primary concerns, then solar control window films are just the thing you’ve been looking for. On the other hand, if you worry about your residential or commercial property and safety is your primary concern, look to security window film as your primary choice.
