Window tinting can add a lot to your home and there is more to it than just controlling the amount of light that’s entering your home.  Some homeowners opt not to have window tints installed in their homes because they see it as an added, unnecessary cost, but by not installing window tints, you’re losing more money than you think.Here are just a few of the reasons why you should consider home window tinting:


Added privacy

Window tints enhance your home’s privacy without you having to make any effort. You’re free to do whatever you want in your home without worrying if your neighbours can see you. More importantly, window tints help keep burglars at bay; when you don’t have tints installed, these housebreakers can easily see what the inside of your house looks like, where the valuables are placed and which part of the house can be accessed with ease, which means they can plan their move easily.


For heat reduction and glare protection

Window tints can dramatically reduce the heat in your home, which also means that window tinting can increase your home comfort level. Aside from that, window tints allow you to enjoy watching your favourite TV show or work on your computer without being interrupted by any interfering glares from the sun.


For interior protection

Long-term exposure to the solar heat and the UV rays is damaging, not only to us but to objects. When your house is not protected by window tints, expect that your flooring, curtains, carpets, furniture and other valuables will eventually fade, which isn’t good for the appearance of your home interiors. The sun’s UV rays also speed up the ageing process of your valuables on display, making objects deteriorate and crack easily.  What better way to protect your investment pieces than to install window tints.


For aesthetic purposes

There isn’t one type of window tint to opt for, there are companies that allow you to have the tints that would perfectly complement your home. Company reps will work with you and offer choices so you can select the colour that you prefer, and the design or pattern that you want printed on them. Customized window tints can enhance the appearance of your home, all you have to do is find the window tinting company that can help you achieve your goals.


For added safety and protection

One thing that no one can predict is when an accident or emergency situation will happen, especially when we consider natural calamities like earthquakes and storms. In such situations it is always better to think a few steps ahead. Having window tints installed should be part of the list – in case the window suddenly breaks, you will be sure that the glass won’t shatter into pieces, as the tinted film will work to hold the parts of your window together.


For energy efficiency

Another great benefit that window tints offer is that it lowers our energy consumption. When it’s extremely hot, the air conditioning system works twice as a hard to be able to lower the temperature of the space – this translates into losing money because of the high energy cost. The case will be different if you choose to install window tints as this limits the glare of the sun entering our home and heating it.


For skin and health protection

Over exposure to the sun’s harmful rays can cause skin, eye and immune system problems. There are people who suffer from melanoma or skin cancer, cataracts, infectious diseases, brought about by the suppression of cell-mediated immunity, and many more. Having window tints installed in your home offers added protection from the sun for you and your family.


Cost efficiency

At some point, you may want to revamp your home because area look old and your windows could be on the list. You could strike that through when you decide to install window tints. These window films preserve the integrity of your windows so instead of replacing the windows themselves, you can just opt to replace the tints, which is more affordable than going with the former. And, you can even change how your home looks like by opting for a different film design or colour.

Solar window film has been proven to show significant reductions in the power consumption of a building. This is influenced by the reduction in the power used, for example, by the air conditioning units.

In normal conditions, when a room or office has accumulated heat, additional energy is required for the installed air conditioning system to eliminate the heat factor from that environment.

The installation of solar window film has the effect of eliminating the heat from the sun entering that area, thus avoiding the expenditure of additional energy by air conditioners or other cooling applications.

Solar window film is capable of reducing the demand on electrical facilities at peak usage times in Canberra, due to the energy conservation properties of the film.
