Do Your Windows Need Sunglasses? Benefits of Window Tinting!

Do Your Windows Need Sunglasses? 

Sunglasses come in a variety of tint colors that offer different benefits. These neutral tones in gray, green, or brown tints provide the most natural color perception and are good for general everyday use. They reduce glare and eye strain in bright conditions.

The Perils of Sun Exposure

What does this have to do with exterior remodeling? Well, If you’ve ever realized too late that your furniture is fading, you’re familiar with the problems caused by sun damage. The sun’s heat, infrared light, visible light, and especially UV rays can cause furniture to gradually lose its original color and appearance. In fact, UV light is responsible for up to 40% of all furniture fading, and it’s present even on cloudy days and during cold weather.

Shielding Furniture with Window Tinting

While heavy window treatments like curtains, blinds, or blackout shades can shield furniture from sun exposure, they may not be everyone’s preferred aesthetic. Tinted windows offer a more feasible and attractive alternative, as they can block up to 99% of UV light and repel solar energy without compromising natural light.

Benefits of Window Tinting

By installing tinted windows, you won’t need to apply UV-resistant sealants or varnishes to your expensive wooden furniture, as you’ll have a permanent solution at the source for direct sunlight. This will also free you up to choose natural fabrics like linen or silk that are less resistant to fading, without compromising your design aesthetic.

Decorative Options for Window Tinting

Residential window tinting offers more than just practical benefits – homeowners love it because it’s stylish. There are several decorative options available, in frosted and colored integrated films, that can complement the aesthetic of a house while still providing UV protection and energy efficiency. Dichroic window film, for example, shifts colors depending on the angle of light, creating a mesmerizing effect.

Consulting with Professionals

Homeowners should consult with window tinting professionals to explore the various options and determine the best solution for their needs and budget. With the right window film, homes can enjoy improved comfort, energy savings, and enhanced curb appeal, all while protecting their valuable furniture from the damaging effects of the sun. 

Tinted house windows are a great choice for homeowners looking to enhance their living spaces while also improving energy efficiency. 

Not to get overly scientific but tinted windows can significantly reduce solar heat gain, keeping your home cooler during hot weather, and reducing the need for air conditioning. 

Glare Reduction

Tinted glass minimizes glare from direct sunlight, creating a more comfortable and visually pleasant environment indoors. And it’s a lot like the experience of picking sunglasses.
