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.


Never compromise on the quality of product and service when choosing a window film installation company.

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
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.

If you’re looking to add style and function to your car, a professionally installed auto window tint is a great solution. Applied to the existing glass in your car, vehicle window films are economical, stylish and create a fast transformation. Not only that, check out these benefits you might not have considered.


Cooler Temperatures Inside Your Car – All window tint will help reduce the heat inside of your vehicle, but some cut more heat than others (We will discuss that below). Keeps that annoying summer heat where it belongs: outside your vehicle!


Reduced Glare – Because vehicle tint reduces the visible light by varying degrees, it can also help you not be getting blinded by dangerous glare on sunny days. Like a high quality pair of sunglasses on a bright day.


Less Eye Fatigue – Like we mentioned above, window tint reduces glare. Reduced glare means your eyes have to work way less hard to maintain focus on the road. Some people even report fewer driving headaches and migraines after they install a window film.


Increased UV Protection – A window film is a bit like giving your car windows a coat of unbelievable sunscreen. Most quality window films block 99% of the sun’s harmful UV rays, so you’re protected from a primary cause of melanoma, premature aging, and cataracts. See an article by The Skin Cancer Foundation for more information on this by clicking HERE.


Added Security – Window tint may reduce your risk of a break-in from a vandal who sees something valuable in your interior. Crimes of opportunity are a huge type of theft, and if you make your items less visible, you may be less likely to experience a break in.


Reduce Glass Shatter-Risk – Certain window films can actually reduce your risk of being injured by shattered glass. If your car is struck in an impact, a shatter-resistant film’s strong adhesive holds onto the pieces of glass, which can help keep you safer in an accident.


Types of Auto Window Tint


If you’re sold on the benefits of window tint, your next step is to decide which type of tint is best for your needs.


Dyed Window Film – This is a very popular and value based choice in vehicle window film. This type sandwiches a layer of dyed polyester between an adhesive and scratch resistant top coat for a flat, non-reflective finish. It’s often an entry level option because it’s the least expensive. Although it doesn’t block as much heat as other options, it does have great glare reducing effects and still cuts out 99% of the UV.


Metal Hybrid Window Film – For better performance while still maintaining a relatively value price point, you can have your windows tinted with a metal hybrid film. The advantages here are that the metal layer enables the film to reduce a much greater amount of heat compared to dyed films. However, this comes at the cost of a slightly more reflective appearance and possible interference with electronics.


Carbon Window Film – Carbon window tint has become a very popular option. They often reduce similar amounts of heat as a metal hybrid film while maintaining the great looks of a dyed window film. They also do not interfere with electronic systems. This comes at a cost though. Carbon based window films are usually offered at a mid-tier price point.


Ceramic or IR Rejecting Window Film – These films represent the best tint you can get for your vehicle. These films typically have a great, non-reflective appearance while rejecting industry leading amounts of heat. These films also will not interfere with electronics. However, because they do nearly everything well, be prepared to pay a bit more for this type of tint than some of the others.

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!
