Car window tinting not only makes your vehicle look great, it offers many other benefits as well. USA Today recently posted an article called "The Complete Guide to Choosing Car Window Tinting". We wanted to share an overview of what that article discussed so that you can make a wise choice regarding getting your vehicle windows tinted. This summary will cover the benefits of window tinting, the types of window tinting and also touch on the window tinting laws.


Benefits of Car Window Tinting


Improved Vehicle Looks - Everyone know that a vehicle with tinted windows has a great look to it. This has to do with many things, but cleaning up the lines of a vehicle by not having the interior elements distract from the overall visual is part of it. It is not by mistake that most vehicle manufacturers photograph their vehicles for marketing with tinted windows like the car above. The cars simply look look better with tinted windows.


Keeps Your Interior Cooler - Most window tint will block a percentage of the heat from entering the vehicle. This will keep the interior cooler and more comfortable.


Protects Your Skin From Sun Damage - The Skin Cancer Foundation has published a variety of data that warns against the potential for skin damage from the sun while traveling in your vehicle. The standard vehicle windows do not block these harmful rays, but adding window films will typically block 99% or more of the sun's UV rays.


Added Privacy - Having the vehicle windows tinted makes it harder for people to see in. This gives you more privacy as an occupant and also helps protect your valuables from prying eyes when the car is parked.


Types Of Automotive Window Tint


Basic Dyed Window Tint - This film will give you a great, non reflective tinted look. The downside is that this film does not block a tremendous amount of heat. In addition, basic dyed films will not interfere with any vehicle or mobile electronics. These films are also typically the least expensive option for window tinting.


Metal Hybrid Window Tint - These films utilize a layer of metal to improve the heat rejection. The downside is that these films often have a more reflective appearance than other window films. The metal layer in this film can cause interference with vehicle and mobile electronics. These films are more expensive than a basic dyed film, but not as expensive as most carbon based and infrared rejecting films.


Carbon Window Tint - These films give the non-reflective appearance of a basic dyed film while increasing the heat rejection to that of a metal hybrid film. These films also will not interfere with electronics. These films are typically slightly more expensive than a metal hybrid film.


Infrared Rejecting Window Tint - These films utilize greater technology to block a high degree of the sun's infrared to really ramp up the heat rejection. Infrared rejecting window films also are typically not very reflective in appearance. This truly make these films the best of all worlds regarding appearance and comfort. Finally, these films also will not interfere with electronics. Infrared rejecting window films typically are the most expensive window tinting option available.

Cost Effective Energy Saving Technology for Homes & Commercial Spaces
Cost Effective Energy Saving Technology for Homes & Commercial Spaces

If you are considering energy saving technology for your home or commercial space without breaking the bank, you should consider a professionally installed window film. Window film innovation has taken major leaps in recent years and the film installed on home or commercial windows has little in common with the basic window tint you might find on a car. For one thing, you can achieve very high levels of performance with professional window films while barely being able to detect that they are installed on the glass. In addition, these films can be retrofitted to nearly any existing window to improve the performance of that unit in a more cost effective way than window replacement.


A recent article at Builder Online even noted that: “Energy Commission creates a “loading order” that ranks products on energy efficiency by cost effectiveness. Window film is near the top of those products, beating even blown in ceiling insulation.”


So, with that in mind, we wanted to provide you with a couple of facts about window film and how it can improve nearly any home or commercial space.


FIVE FAST WINDOW FILM FACTS


Cut Cooling Costs By Up To 50% - According to the EPA Energy Star Buildings Manual in the United States, approximately half of a home’s utility bills are wasted by loss of heat and heat gain through untreated windows. Window films can significantly improve energy efficiency. With a thin, virtually invisible addition to existing windows, window films can help you save up to 50% on cooling costs.


Reduce Hot Spots and Cut Irritating Glare - Open your blinds, shades, or draperies and let the sunlight in. In addition to blocking heat, window film reduces glare by up to 87%, making it easier for you to watch television or work on a computer in comfort. Because window films are made with ultra-clear, distortion-free materials, you won’t even know it’s there.


Lessen the Detrimental Effects of UV Exposure - Most fabrics, furnishings and artwork can fade simply by allowing daylight to pass through an untreated window. Most window films will block up to 99.9% of all UVA and UVB rays, helping to protect the occupants of the space while also preserving the color of furnishings, fabrics and carpets.


Corrects Temperature Imbalances Across a Space - Window films can help eliminate hot and cold spots within a space by using film that reduces heat gain coming through the glass in hot areas. This will create a more balanced temperature across the space and reduce the load on the air conditioning system.


Cost Effective Alternative to Window Replacement - While damaged or deteriorating windows simply have to be replaced, window film provides an affordable alternative to replacement when your goal is to improve energy efficiency on otherwise sound windows. In fact, the cost for quick, professional installation is about one-tenth the cost of replacement windows!

An automotive window film can redefine the look of any vehicle, but also add UV protection, heat control, glare reduction, and additional privacy. With its wide array of benefits and sharp appearance, automotive window films are an economical way to improve the performance and look of your vehicle.


When you’re outside in the sun, you typically take measures to protect your skin with sunscreen and clothing that covers your skin. Did you know that when you drive, you are just as exposed to the sun's harmful UV rays as you are outside! Skin cancers are most prevalent on the left side of people in the US due to the constant exposure when driving! By adding an automotive window film to your vehicle, you will be reducing exposure to harmful UV rays by up to 99.9%.


Do you hate getting into your car on a hot sunny day? Automotive window films can reject up to 60% of solar energy coming in through your windows. This leads to cooler, more evenly controlled temperatures and faster cool downs once the air conditioning is turned on. Nobody enjoys a hot and steamy car on a hot summer's day so consider an automotive window film to keep your vehicle cool and comfortable.


Protect your vehicle from prying eyes with an automotive window film. Whether you desire privacy on the road or just want to make your valuables harder to see when parked, an automotive window film is an economical way to increase your privacy and provide an added layer of security.


Depending on the time of your commute, the sun's glare can really impact your comfort and safety while driving. Glare is inconvenient at best, and potentially deadly at worst! Significantly reducing the glare from the sunlight will allow you to appreciate driving on sunny days without feeling blinded by the sun’s rays.

Do you like home improvement projects? If you answered yes, you should really consider all the benefits a professionally installed window film can offer. In this article, we wanted to discuss some benefits of window films to a homeowner and why they should consider it for home improvement projects.


Why Window Film Is a Perfect Home Improvement Project


Color Neutral Options – While this may not have been the case in the past, modern window films can offer the tremendous benefits listed below without impacting the looks of your home.


Lower Bills – In hot weather, solar-control films can block up to 80 percent of the solar energy coming through windows. This can cut down on air conditioning costs by reducing the amount of time your unit needs to operate in order to keep the home comfortable. In addition, it can help reduce maintenance costs by lowering the strain on your equipment.


Added Protection – Visible light lies on the spectrum between ultraviolet, which damages furniture, and infrared, which beams heat. Treated windows will block 99 percent of UVA and UVB rays, thus greatly slowing the deterioration and fading of drapes, carpet and furniture.


Decorative and Privacy Applications – Today’s window films also can inexpensively make clear glass look etched or frosted to increase privacy or for a decorative effect.


Not a Fix For a Deteriorating Window – If your windows are in bad shape, leaking or poorly insulated, adding film won’t fix that. Deteriorating windows should be replaced. However, if your windows are in good shape, don’t go through the cost of replacing them just to improve energy efficiency, consider adding window film.

Resolve to Have a More Comfortable and Energy Efficient Home in 2020

With 2020 just getting underway, why not resolve to have a more comfortable and energy efficient home this year? While your home’s windows open your space to natural lighting, warmth and views of the outside world, there are also the downsides. Unfortunately these same windows also open you up to high energy costs, heat build-up, excessive glare, and the premature fading of interior furnishings. Implementing a high quality home window film solution can improve the comfort and increase the energy efficiency of your windows and allow you to bask in the sunlight, worry-free.


Some of the Benefits of a Home Window Film


More Energy Efficient Home – According to the EPA Energy Star Buildings Manual in the United States, approximately half of a home’s utility bills are wasted by loss of heat and heat gain through untreated windows. Home window tinting can significantly improve energy efficiency. With a thin, virtually invisible addition to your home’s existing windows, window films can help you save up to 50% on cooling costs.


Improved Comfort by Reducing Heat and Glare – Open your blinds, shades, or draperies and let the sunlight in. In addition to blocking heat, home window tint reduces glare by up to 87%, making it easier for you to watch television or work on a computer in the comfort of your home. Because home window films are made with ultra-clear, distortion-free materials, you won’t even know it’s there.


Reduce Hot and Cold Spots Throughout the Home – Window films can help eliminate hot and cold spots within your home by using film that reduces heat gain coming through the glass in hot areas. This will create a more balanced temperature across the space and reduce the load on your air conditioning system.


Prevent Premature Fading of Furniture and Furnishings – Fading is caused by three primary factors; Visible light or glare, heat and UV rays. The great thing about home window films is that they attack all three of these areas. Window film will help reduce heat and glare as discussed above. In addition, most window films block 99% of the sun’s UV rays from passing through. The combination of window film reducing these three factors helps extend the life of your furnishings by protecting them from fading.
