Residential Solar Window Films
Bathing your home in natural sunlight is a great way to conserve energy and beautify your home. Unfortunately, sunlight is notorious for fading home furnishings, causing severe glare on our various devices (computer, TV, etc), and containing harmful UV rays. Controlling solar energy is key to creating a safe and comfortable home environment, regardless of whether yours is a heritage home or new build. Window films provide your family with a comfortable living space and help you reduce expenses.
What Are The Benefits?
Increased Comfort & Protection, Reduced Costs & Glare,
1. Solar Heat Rejection
Solar energy comes in many forms, such as the visible light you can see and the infrared light you can feel as heat. Modern technological advancements (such as multi-layer film and nano-ceramic technology) enable our films to reject up to 97% of the sun’s infrared light and 85% of the heat that passes through your windows. Without films, windows allow huge amounts of heat to flow out of your home in the winter, causing you to turn on the heater, and into your home in the summer, causing you to turn on the air conditioner. Due to this heat flow, the installation of heat controlling solar window films are far and away the most cost-effective way to upgrade your home and cut your energy loss.
2. UV Light Rejection
As part of a comprehensive sun protection program, The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends window tint on buildings and vehicles. Many people are surprised by this recommendation, as they only consider themselves vulnerable to the sun’s harmful rays when they are outside. Along with wearing sunscreen, covering up with clothing, and staying in the shade, you should consider installing solar window films to your home as part of a complete program for protection against ultraviolet (UV) rays. All of Tint View’s window films block up to 99% of harmful UV rays, helping you improve your family’s health and safety.
3. Light Transmittance
4. Energy Bills Reduced
15% of the average home’s wall space is made of glass, typically in the form of windows and glass doors. If left untreated, or is old or damaged, these transparent areas can lead to dramatic decreases in home energy efficiency. Purely due to underperforming windows, experts estimate that the average home wastes $63 per month, that’s $760 per year, on unnecessary energy expenses.
If you are concerned with rising utility costs, solar window film is a simple and efficient way to reduce solar and radiant heat from transferring into and out of your windows. Our films can provide up to 85% heat rejection, which translates to energy savings to you during summer and winter months, as well as reducing the load on your A/C and heating systems by eliminating hot-spots in your home.
