Residential window tinting can be a very cost-effective way to reduce energy, minimize glare, protect your furnishings and increase the security of your home. The best part is that this film can typically be done as a retrofit to your existing windows with very little disruption to your home. Take a moment to read this excerpt from an article that appeared in How Stuff Works that discussed the top benefits of having your home windows tinted.


Excerpt from an article written by Jessica Brown


“Curtains, furniture and even flooring can fall victim to the effects of the sun. One of the leading culprits in fading your valuables is ultraviolet light. To keep those home furnishings and decorations looking their best, a window film with a high percentage of ultraviolet light rejection would be a good choice. Many films can now block almost 99 percent of the sun’s ultraviolet rays.


Ultraviolet light can not only fade your furniture, but too much of it can affect your health. Ultraviolet rays are the reason for sunburns and are also seen as one of the risk factors for cancer. According ­to the Report on Carcinogens released by the Department of Health and Human Services, ultraviolet radiation is a known human carcinogen [source: National Institutes of Health]. For working to prevent sun-induced skin damage, several types of window film have even been given the Skin Cancer Foundation‘s Seal of Recommendation [source: The Skin Cancer Foundation].


Some window films offer another benefit in the area of safety: shatter resistance. The film’s shatter resistance comes from its ability to hold glass shards together and act as a barrier between the interior of the home and the glass. Along with the safety benefits, window tinting can also help to reduce the glare on your television when viewing the big game. The percentage of glare reduction is usually related to the visible light transmittance. The lower the amount of light transmitted through the film, the greater the glare reduction inside the home.


While a darker film can offer more glare reduction and privacy, a clearer film offers a more natural view from the window. Darker films can also have higher values for reflectivity. Reflectivity can be beneficial when reflecting the sunlight, but it can be less desirable when the view out of your windows at night includes a shadowed version of the room’s interior.”

Low E Window Film Can Make Your Home More Comfortable
Low E Window Film Can Make Your Home More Comfortable

Low E Window Film Improves Home Comfort


In this post we wanted to give an example of how Low E window film helped improve the comfort of this house by keeping the home warmer in the Winter and cooler in the Summer. In addition, the film helped reduce the primary causes of fading which extends the life of the home’s furnishings.


The Situation – At an elevation of more than 8,000 feet sits a majestic mansion that seamlessly renders the divide between the built and the natural worlds. Oversized glass windows, (which in this home become glass walls) dramatize the relationship between the house and its spectacular mountain surroundings. The sun’s glare, in tandem with destructive ultraviolet light, became an environmental impediment to the point that the interior living areas were decidedly uncomfortable. This was a particular challenge for the interior designer since the home abounds in valuable art, costly furnishings and an expanse of custom wide-board pine flooring, all of which are particularly sensitive to ultraviolet light, which is a contributing factor to fading.


The Solution -The designer elected to install a Low E window film by LLumar to tame the ultraviolet ravages and combat glare. The high-tech invisible film blocks more than 99 percent of ultraviolet rays, helping protect against premature fading* and helps reduce glare providing visually comfortable surroundings.


The Result – In commenting on the film’s installation, the designer said, “Glare-free views can be enjoyed throughout the year and the fading of the furnishings, precious art and expansive wood floors are no longer a matter of concern. What’s more, the owners are quite oblivious to the presence of the film.”
