There are many reasons why you should consider using window film on the windows in your home or place of business. From safety issues to protection from the sun’s harmful UV rays, there are many valid arguments in favor of this type of sturdy window protection.
First and foremost, residential window film is good for both you and the environment, making it an attractive and “green” addition to your home or office. By installing tinted window film you can decrease the amount of harmful UV rays that enter the area by 82% versus untreated glass and it will create a comfortable living area with less money wasted on cooling costs. This will also help decrease the need for the AC unit running for extended periods of time, thus saving wear and tear on the AC unit itself while allowing it to last longer before needed replacement or maintenance.
Many tinted, can block up to 99% of the sun’s harmful UV rays that can fade, crack or otherwise damage items that rest in areas of full sunlight. By having window film installed over your glass you can protect these items you love and cherish. This tinted window film will also cut down on the annoying glare caused by the sun or other bright, outside objects reflecting this glaring light back into your eyes. Not only can this be harmful to your vision and the overall health of your eyes, but can also contribute to the premature aging of your skin and may possibly lead to skin cancer as well. This solar glare can also be a safety issue when driving your automobile on bright days and it is highly recommended that you have your vehicle’s windows filmed with a UV resistant film too.
Tinted window film will also give you privacy in your home or vehicle when it has been installed, and help prolong the upholstery, dashboard and other items in your car. Window film will allow you to eliminate the worry from someone stealing items that may have been left in your vehicle.
One of the greatest benefits of having residential window film installed on your home or place of business is safety. Accidents, the forces of nature and other human beings can instantly turn a pane of glass into thousands of sharp and dangerous shards. Windows are the main entry point for smash and grab burglars who are looking for an easy way to enter your home or business to steal what you might have inside. Window film holds the glass together in one solid sheet even when it is broken, making it a priceless deterrent to thieves trying to enter your home.
This same principal is what makes window film a valuable asset if you live in areas prone to high wind conditions. These winds can pick up debris and hurl it toward the windows in your home. Not only do these destructive forces smash the glass and allow wind and water to enter your home causing more damage, but can also drive shards of dangerous glass inside toward your friends or family members. Window film will eliminate this threat by holding the glass together as one unit until the storm subsides and the glass can be replaced.
There are many good reasons to have window film installed in your home, business or vehicle and the top of the list is always as an added layer of protection for yourself, family members or home and business items. By installing this protective layering you can feel confident that your home will be protected and safe.
