The Benefits of Window Tinting
Walls, roofs, and doors make up a home, but windows provide our view onto the world around us. The cost of that gorgeous sunlight streaming through your beautiful West Palm Beach windows can be high, though, increasing your home’s energy usage to cool the air, as well as causing lasting damage from direct sunlight to furniture and furnishings.
Residential window tinting is an increasingly popular solution in which a translucent sheet or film is applied to your windows, limiting the amount of sunlight that enters your home. If you’re a Palm Beach County or Broward County homeowner, residential window tinting could be the protection you need both for your wallet and your possessions.
Residential Window Tinting Saves Energy
The sun makes light and heat, which shine on us and warm us. Who knows this better than those of us enjoying our sun-filled lives in Boca Raton, Delray Beach, or any of the other countless gorgeous, sun-drenched locales around us in Southeastern Florida? Here we also understand that one of the costs of our beautiful sunlight is increased energy and money used to keep us cool. Energy efficiency in a home is as good as its weakest link, which is most often our windows.
Windows let light and heat in and can leak out the cool air we produce. Adding a window tint or window film to the windows in your home may not seem like much, but this small addition to your home can block out a significant portion of the sun’s costly rays, saving you money and even paying for itself in the long run. Home window tinting also costs a fraction of what it would take to replace older, less efficient windows, with comparable results.
Make Your Memories Last Longer with Window Tinting
Many homeowners also aren’t aware of the damage that can be done by too much direct sunlight over time. Have you ever seen a movie poster or storefront sign faded with age, getting a little bluer each time you pass it on the road? Home window tinting may not save that signage out in the open air, but it can save your important memories from being lost to the ravages of sunlight and time.
Damage done by sunlight is not just limited to prints or artwork, either – window tinting can save your furniture, paint, wallpaper, and other household items affected by direct sunlight, all of which can fade, bleach, and lose their attractiveness and luster over time. Window films that reduce the amount of harmful ultraviolet radiation entering your home by even a small amount can add years of life to your home furnishings.
Here in Southeastern Florida, we know what benefits and what damages the sun’s rays can do to ourselves and our homes. Adding a home window tinting solution can affect your quality of life, the longevity of your the things in your home that you love, and even your health and safety. Compared to getting new windows or allowing the sun to keep doing damage to your home, the cost of home window tinting is good for your bottom line!by
