8 Good Reasons to Tint Home Windows


Window tinting is most commonly associated with flash sports cars and limousines, adding a sleek look and giving the residents within some extra privacy from the outside world. Home window tinting offer these great benefits, plus more. Whether you’re looking to increase your curb appeal, save money or protect the contents of your home, window tinting is a brilliant investment and will make your life easier in more ways than you might realise.

There are many ways to tint windows and many different results which can be customised to the specific needs of the consumer. A good window tinting company will be able to cater to your needs or desires for each individual room, and create a holistic effect.

1. Privacy
Potentially the most obvious and common reason for wanting tinted windows. Privacy is vital for living comfortably and the less people can see inside your home, the more relaxed you can be. Tinted windows prevent people being able to see inside as most of the light that hits it will be reflected. There is also the bonus of hindering a potential burglar from seeing your valuables from outside the house.

2. Save money
Well-installed films and tints reduce the amount of heat that can pass through the window, be it from the summer sun beating down or warmth escaping in the winter. As a result, both heating and AC usage drops, and your utility bills are much lighter, saving you money over time.

3. Curb appeal
Whether for your own personal satisfaction of seeing your stunning house, or for subtly showing off to your neighbours, window tinting greatly increases the curb appeal of your property. Many people focus on the practical benefits of window tints and don’t stop to appreciate that it can make a house look more sleek and appealing.

4. Maintenance
When installing your films, there are water and scratch resistant options that can also be applied. These will reduce how often you need to clean your windows and make them much easier to clean, besides prolonging the durability of your windows.

5. Glare
Not only does window tinting reflect heat, it also greatly reduces the amount of glare coming in from the sun. Glare can make it much harder to look at computer or television screens, it is also much less comfortable to just live in your house.

6. Protection from sun damage
The sun bleaches and fades curtains, upholstered furniture and hardwood furniture over time, making their colour less rich and your rooms look older. Tinted windows block the sun’s UV rays, meaning your investment on the deep-brown oak floor will last much longer, and your house will look great for longer.

7. Breakage
If the tinted windows were to break due to any accidents, it wouldn’t shatter and fill your room with dangerous broken glass. Instead, the film would help hold it in place, protecting your family from injury.

8. Climate
In the baking summer months, it is easy for certain rooms to become much hotter than others under the sunlight. Tinted windows allow your house to maintain a consistent, comfortable temperature throughout.
