Benefits of Window Film

There are numerous reasons to tint the windows of your home, office, car, truck, SUV, RV, boat, or commercial vehicle. Aesthetics, comfort, UV protection, safety, privacy, and energy savings are the primary reasons people choose to tint their windows. The experts at Glass Tint USA can help you find the right window film for your needs.

Aesthetics

Adding window tinting to your home, vehicle, or commercial building gives a clean, “finished” look while cutting down on glare from sunlight. Decorative window films are also available to give homes and businesses the look of etched glass at a fraction of the cost.

Comfort

Window film creates a more comfortable environment, whether it is installed on a vehicle or a home or commercial building. Window tinting can make a car up to 60% cooler in the summertime, cutting down on your car being extremely hot when you enter it. In a commercial or residential setting, window film causes rooms to stay cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, no matter where the sun is shining. Window film also reduces glare from sunlight, cutting down on eye strain.

UV Protection

Window film blocks 99% of the sun’s ultraviolet rays from entering your home, business, or vehicle. This helps reduce glare while protecting skin and eyes from damage. By blocking UV rays, window tinting also helps protect furnishings, upholstery, paintings, and tapestries from fading and discoloration.

Safety

Window film helps to hold glass together in the event of window breakage, whether from an accident or an attempted break-in. When installed on a vehicle, window tint makes it more difficult to see valuables in the car, or who is driving the vehicle.

Privacy

Window films afford a clear view to the outside. Depending on the privacy desired, you can increase privacy by selecting films that prevent others from looking in during the daytime.

Energy Savings

Window film not only enhances the look of a car, house, or office, it also helps reduce energy costs. In summer months, about 40% of utility bill costs at a home or business come from heat gain through windows. Commercial or residential window tinting reduces heat gain by 80%, helping to reduce utility cooling costs. Adding auto window tinting can make a car up to 60% cooler during the summertime than vehicles without window tinting, helping to increase the car’s gas mileage.
