And Other Pressing Questions About How Window Tinting for Homes Can Change Your Lifestyle
Homeowners considering window security film, window tint film, and decorative film are wise to ask a lot of questions before purchasing products and paying for installation.
Energy Solutions is always happy to answer these questions.
Will 3M™ Window Tint Affect My Cell or Wi-Fi Signal?
It can, but plenty of modern films don’t obstruct your cell reception, nor your Wi-Fi signal.
You might have heard that window tint film can block signals, but the only type that does is the class known as metallic window film. This type is made of tiny metallic particles that reflect light. But today’s selection of residential film isn’t metallic, so you should have no issues with your cell phone or Internet connection after installation in your home.
What If I Want Those Signals Blocked?
If blocking cell signals or Wi-Fi is your goal, it’s possible to achieve it with highly specialized window tinting for homes. As an authorized dealer of 3M™ window tint, Energy Solutions can help you choose the right product to achieve this particular privacy goal.
Will Window Tint Film Make My New Jersey Home Dark?
If you love the sunlight streaming into your windows, but need the benefits that 3M™ window tint provides, don’t worry! There are plenty of options that can prevent harmful UV rays from entering your home without darkening your rooms. The experts at Energy Solutions can suggest products that meet your needs from an array of long-lasting film and tint.
Is Cleaning Window Film Easy?
Yes! Cleaning 3M™ window tint is very easy. We recommend using only soft cloths and ammonia-free cleaners on any glass surfaces that have window tint film applied to them. Our experts will provide you with more cleaning advice, depending on the home window tinting you choose.
In general, you’ll be able to clean your windows exactly the same way you would before you had the film applied.
Can Window Tint Film Keep My Neighbors and Solicitors From Seeing Inside My Home?
Certain privacy film products can absolutely reduce vision into your home without affecting your own vision outside, even at night. Let our experts show you how.
Does Window Tint Film Do Anything Else, Besides Darken Windows?
It’s a common misconception that people who choose to add window tinting for homes do so only to darken windows and block out light. Film can also:
- Reduce glare.
- Block UVA and UVB rays from entering your home and fading your furnishings or causing skin cancer.
- Reject the sun’s heat, thus reducing your cooling bills in summer.
- Add a layer of insulation on your windows, thus reducing your heating bills in winter.
- Eliminate hot spots around your home.
- Improve your vision of the outdoors.
How Long Does It Take to Apply 3M™ Window Tint?
In only a few minutes or a few hours – depending on the amount of film in your project – our team can install the window tint film of your choice, including window security film.
To perform the installation, we first prepare the area by protecting your floors and furniture and then by cleaning the glass.
We spray the film with a slip solution and apply it to the glass. We then squeegee to remove excess water and trim and dry the edges.
Do I Have to Wait for Good Weather?
Because we install the film on the inside of your windows, we do not need to wait for the rain to stop.
In rare cases, it can be too hot or too cold outside for installation – but in general, New Jersey weather is cooperative. Energy Solutions installs window film in all four seasons.
Why Would Newly-Installed Film Look Hazy?
Don’t worry – that hazy look is totally normal for about 30 to 45 days after installation. This is the average amount of time it takes for the window tint film to cure and fully dry. Small water bubbles and this haziness are expected, and they’ll disappear when the film dries.
