Curtains and blinds are the most common choice by homeowners to reduce heat coming into their home from the sun and add privacy to their windows. However, residential tinting is an effective and efficient way to get these same benefits while saving yourself money in the long run. Tinting also offers an eye-catching look with added protection and safety features. Here are the reasons you will save money by choosing residential tinting:
- Improved energy efficiency leads to lower electric bills. The most common and well-known reason for getting residential tinting is to save energy. Glass windows allow the sun’s heat to penetrate, which has a significant impact on the temperature inside your home. The simple act of adding a window tint blocks the heat (without blocking the lovely light), which keeps your home at a lower temperature and means that the air conditioner does not need to run as frequently. You also get more consistent temperatures across your home, which will also reduce your energy use.
- Residential tinting protects the interior of your home. The harsh UV rays of the sun can fade and damage your belongings, such as upholstery and artwork, over time. Tinting your windows eliminates this issue and protects your home, which means you do not need to replace your furniture due to sun damage.
- Increased home value. There are numerous ways to improve the curb appeal of your home, and residential tinting is a small investment with huge gains. Not only does it aesthetically improve the look of your home, but it also adds many benefits that are a major selling point in the future.
In short, residential tinting is a cost-effective way to gain the benefits which curtains offer while preserving natural light in your home. You will see the cost savings add up as you enjoy a more energy-efficient and beautiful home. Contact us today for a free consultation.
