Window tint for your vehicle is something not many people give a second thought to. While you may know that you want it done, how much research have you done to ensure that you will be happy with the overall result? Unfortunately, most people only notice a window tint job when one is done improperly or the window tint has gone bad. Fortunately, these are easy pitfalls to avoid, so we wanted to give you three things to consider before you get your vehicle tinted.


Do you only want the look or do you want performance too? – Just like most other items you can purchase for your vehicle, there are numerous levels of window tint quality and performance. You first need to determine if you only want the look of tinted windows or if you actually would like some noticeable heat and UV rejection as well. While an inexpensive film might make your windows look the way you want, it may barely reject any heat at all. The good news is that with the latest generations of window tint you can have great looks and tremendous performance. Spend some time discussing your options with our team at Colorado Glass Tinting so that you can make the right choice to give you the combination of desired look and heat and UV rejecting performance.


How experienced is the installer? – Many of the modifications done to a vehicle can be done by individuals with a variety of skill levels without drastically effecting the end result. However, window tint is quite different. An experienced installer can make all the difference between you have a great looking tint job that you can be proud of or an eyesore not worthy of your vehicle. A good installer can make an even average window tint look great based on the quality of their installation. Likewise, an inexperienced installer can take the best window film available and get a substandard result based on flaws in the installation. To have a tint job that will last and that you can be proud of, make sure to verify a company’s experience level and ask to see some examples of their work.


Who is standing behind the product and installation? – We would all love to live in a world where things did not go wrong. Unfortunately, things can and do sometimes turn out different than we would like. Just like any other product you might purchase, there can be situations where a window tint will fail and need to be replaced. It is when this happens that the company standing behind the film that was installed and the shop that did the installation become very important. At Tint King, we use only top quality film from Llumar and we have been servicing the greater Indianapolis, Indiana area for over 25 years.


Any quality window tint job should come with a warranty card from the manufacturer that spells out the terms of the warranty and the process to get something corrected if there is ever an issue. If a shop does not tell you what brand of window tint is being installed or provide you with a warranty card, that should be a red flag to look elsewhere for your installation.


I hope that these three basic questions to consider help you to make a more informed decision the next time you get your vehicle tinted.

With so many people showing an interest in improving the energy efficiency and facility operations of their spaces, we thought you might find this article interesting. This article was posted in FacilitiesNet about the three ways that window film can improve facility operations. To summarize, the three ways are as follows:


Reduces Energy Costs: When window film is installed, the stress on the HVAC system is greatly reduced. Film keeps the cool air inside during summer months and limits heat loss during the winter months. These benefits can ultimately result in lower utility bills for facility managers.


Improves Safety Measures: Windows and doors are any building’s main point of entry, even for those who are uninvited. Safety window films can help reduce property loss and damage in the event of a burglary attempt by making it far more difficult for criminals to penetrate the building through glass doors and windows. Also, in the unlikely and unfortunate event of a natural disaster or extreme weather event, safety and security window film will help minimize damage to property and occupants.


Increases Productivity for Occupants and Preserve Furnishings: Window film lets in natural daylight, but blocks 99% of the sun’s damaging ultraviolet rays, and up to 82% of the sun’s heat. Sun beaming in through the windows can be harmful to the building’s occupants and damage the furnishings. Window film can solve these problems, making it easier for employees to get their jobs done comfortably while protecting their skin and the interior furnishings.

Hopefully the title of this article has The Beatles tune playing in the back of your head. That is what I was thinking about when I sat down to write this article. Summer is coming, and with it, we have the long daylight hours with plenty of sun. While most of us look forward to this time of the year, and all the fun things that it brings, that extra sun can also play havoc in your home, with your health and on your budget. In this article I wanted to focus on three ways that window films can help make all that extra sun alright.


Window Films Can Save Money on Energy Costs – The extra sun that Spring and Summer brings also often brings high utility bills because your air conditioning system is working overtime. Through the use of modern window films, you can dramatically reduce the amount of heat entering your home through the glass and subsequently reduce how hard your AC unit has to work to keep the home cool. If your AC system is working less, you are using less energy and your utility bills will reflect that savings.

In addition, although not specifically a utility bill, your AC unit working less throughout the Summer can extend the service life of that unit and reduce maintenance costs. So, window film can actually save both on the energy cost of running the AC and the maintenance costs associated with the usage of your AC.


Window Films Can Make Your Home More Comfortable – The longer days of Spring and Summer can also bring about things that make your home less comfortable. Specifically, many homeowners deal with excessive glare and hot spots in the home at this time of the year. Whether it is for watching TV, using a computer or just kicking back with your favorite book, glare can make a room an uncomfortable place to be. By using window films strategically in your home, you can reduce the glare in rooms where that is an issue.

Additionally, does your home suffer from hot and cold spots at this time of the year because one side is in sun most of the day while the other side is in the shade? You can use window film on the side of the home with excessive sun to reduce the heat entering in that area and equalize temperature throughout the home.


Window Films Can Preserve Your Furnishings and Your Health – The extra sun that Summer brings can also bring about fading issues with your flooring and furniture. Most windows offer no protection from the UV rays pouring through that account for a full 40% of the factors that cause fading. With modern window films, even the lightest shades block 99+% of the UV rays from entering through the windows. By eliminating this major cause of fading, you have taken a major step to extend the life of your flooring and furnishings. Also, The Skin Cancer Foundation has warned that this UV entering your home can also be detrimental to your health. In an article, they state,


“While it’s understood that taking sun safety precautions is important outside, few people realize they can sustain sun damage indoors, too. While both ultraviolet A (UVA) and ultraviolet B (UVB) radiation from the sun can harm the skin and lead to skin cancers, UVB is effectively blocked by glass. However, at least 50 percent of UVA rays can pass through windows. Window film is an increasingly effective solution, offering substantial indoor protection by blocking up to 99.9 percent of UVA radiation.”


The use of window film can help block these harmful UV rays and preserve your health in this area. You can read the entire article from The Skin Cancer Foundation by clicking HERE.

The end result is that the inside of your vehicle will be a more comfortable place to be with a quality window tint installed.


Window Tint Protects Vehicle Interiors and Your Skin – We all understand the negative impact that the sun’s UV rays can have on our skin, but they also can cause sun damage to interior surfaces of your vehicle.

The benefits of home window film are wide-ranging. Windows open your home to natural lighting, warmth and views of the outside world. Unfortunately, they also open you up to high energy costs, heat build-up, excessive glare, and the premature fading of interior furnishings. Retrofitting your home’s windows with a quality window film allows you to bask in the sunlight, worry-free.


Cut Your Home Cooling Costs 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. 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.


Reduce 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.


Lessen the Effects of Harmful UV Rays


Most fabrics, furnishings and artwork can fade simply by allowing daylight to pass through an untreated window. Home window tinting will block up to 99.9% of all UVA and UVB rays, helping to protect your family and preserve the color of your furnishings, fabrics and carpets.


Corrects Temperature Imbalances


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.


Protect Your Home and Family


Glass can be a real hazard in the home when broken from accidents, storms, or break-ins. Safeguard your family and your property with home safety window films. This transparent but powerful barrier helps hold glass in place should an impact occur, help keep an intruder out and help defend you against the unexpected.


Affordable Alternative to Replacement Windows


While damaged or deteriorating windows simply have to be replaced, home window tinting provides an affordable alternative to replacement when your goal is to improve energy efficiency. In fact, the cost for quick, professional installation is about one-tenth the cost of replacement windows!
