Energy Solutions in New Jersey Installs Window Tinting for Homes
“Window tint film” is kind of a misnomer. While you can certainly darken your home’s windows, 3M window tint doesn’t have to! In fact, modern 3M window tint doesn’t affect the color or opacity of your windows at all – unless you choose the kind that does.
If you’re sufficiently confused right now, don’t fear; let’s explore how window tinting for homes actually works and why you’ll want the professionals at Energy Solutions to install it where you live.
Window Tint Film Blocks UV Rays from Passing Through the Glass
Just as window tint on cars block UV rays and infrared light from the sun, so, too, does residential window tint. Our quality 3M window film can block up to 97 percent of UV rays, the leading cause of fading in furniture, flooring, and other building materials in your home.
And what about the negative effects of UV rays on your skin? Yes, even sun streaming in your windows can cause your skin to age more rapidly and even result in developing melanomas that lead to skin cancer.
In fact, skin cancer researchers discovered that the two most dangerous types of skin cancer most commonly occurred on the left side of the body. They realized the connection: sun exposure while driving. Enjoying sunny spots in your home without the protection of residential window film can put you at risk, too.
Blocking out the sun’s harmful rays, particularly if your home has older windows, can help protect you and your belongings inside your home. Keep the dangers of the outdoors where they belong.
Specialized 3M Window Tint Prevents People from Seeing Inside
As the sun sets on your New Jersey, Pennsylvania, or New York home, you probably close your blinds or curtains, or draw your drapes. In doing so, you’re preventing someone from outside seeing into your home when the lights are on in the evening.
But what if you could get the same type of privacy without having to walk around your home to each window? You’d save time and energy and likely extend the life of your window treatments.
Certain types of 3M window tint are designed to give you a clear view outside, while making it more difficult to see in. The added privacy can keep you feeling more comfortable and secure in your space. You are free to enjoy every room of your house the way you please, with no risk of nosy neighbors interfering.
And if someone cannot see into your home at night, you could reduce your risk of break-ins. A burglar won’t know what’s inside to steal, thanks to residential window tint film.
Window Security Film Holds It All Together
Speaking of break-ins, unless your windows are made of a special grade of glass, they’re at risk of being broken should someone attempt to enter your home, or if the neighborhood kids aim their pickup baseball game in the wrong direction!
Window security film makes glass shatter-resistant by keeping the pieces together in the event that your windows break. Compared to window tint film that is only designed to block UV rays, security films are made with both a thicker polyester and aggressive adhesive.
The strength of this window tint film is often enough of a crime deterrent should someone try to break in, but it also gives you peace-of-mind knowing you won’t need to hastily board up a broken window while you wait for your glazier or replacement window company to visit.
