Energy Solutions Busts Myths About Our Work in the Tri-State Area
When you think of window tint, the first image that pops into your head is of a vehicle with darkened windows. And because of that stereotypical image you envision, a lot of myths swirl around the world of window tinting for homes.
As highly-rated industry professionals, Energy Solutions is here to dispel these silly notions and give you some real talk about window tint.
Myth: Window tint film makes your house or office dark.
It’s true that certain film can darken the interior of your home or business, but if you’re looking for benefits like reduced UV rays or heat blocking, then you’ll be able to choose from a range of essentially clear film.
These let in all the light you want, without compromising on keeping your home cool, or protecting your furnishings.
Myth: There’s no good reason for window tint for homes.
People choose to have us apply window tinting for homes for a variety of reasons, and different kinds of 3M window film do different things. The problem with this myth is that people equate window films with darkening car windows so deeply, that no one can see in or out.
In truth, residential window film isn’t like that at all. People choose to add film to their windows for reasons like:
- Protecting their skin from harmful UVA and UVB rays.
- Reducing their heating or cooling bills.
- Improving their visual clarity outside at night, using the night vision film option.
- Securing their home by preventing shattered glass, using specialized window security film.
- Decorating their home to their liking with faux glass finishes.
Any reason you have to ask us to install window tint film in your home or business is a good reason.
Myth: Window tint can only be installed in good weather.
We can tint windows in nearly any weather condition because most window tint films are applied to the inside of the glass. New Jersey can be getting hit with a nor’easter, and Energy Solutions will show up to our installation appointment.
As long as the interior of your home or building is temperature-controlled, we can tint windows for you.
Myth: It’s hard to clean windows that have film applied to them.
The 3M window film lines we carry are durable and can certainly be cleaned. Thirty days after installation, you can clean your window film for the first time, using normal household cleaning solutions, including ammonia-based products.
Avoid using any abrasive products that could scratch the film; using these will void your limited lifetime warranty on both the installation and your new tint.
Our team is always happy to provide cleaning advice, so call us if you have any questions about when and how to clean your windows with our film applied.
Myth: There’s only a few choices when it comes to window tint film.
Window tint film has come a long way over the years. Initially, there were few options, and they all essentially did the same thing: added some shade by blocking light. But today’s window tint film options feel limitless.
3M makes film that performs multiple functions, including being purely decorative, or blocking 99.9 percent of UV rays. They also produce films made especially for commercial environments and residential environments.
Let us help you choose the window tint film that’s right for you.
Myth: It’s easy to install tint on windows.
Is it possible to DIY your window tint installation? Yes. Should you? We don’t recommend it! Not only are you likely to go through excess materials trying to get it right, but you also don’t have the skills to do it quickly and efficiently.
What happens when you miss spots of debris on your glass when you apply your window film tint? It’s sealed in there until you remove it. And if you do remove it, you may find yourself having to order extra materials to get the job done. You also should expect spending the greater part of your weekend – or multiple weekends – applying film to each of your home’s windows.
Professional window tint installation from Energy Solutions comes with a limited lifetime warranty for both product and service, neither of which you’d get if you went for the do-it-yourself route. We have the right tools for the job and can flawlessly apply film the first time.
