Why Window Film?

Why window film?

Solar Art often gets asked if window film is really worth it. Window film has many different purposes that can solve a variety of different issues. Weather can wreak havoc on your home and businesses due to excessive heat, light and UV rays pouring in through windows. Home window tinting and commercial window tinting can be a simple and inexpensive solution to these problems. You can even add decorative window film which can protect your personal possessions and add a touch of elegance to your space.

How Window Film Works

So how does window film work, anyways? Window film is just what it sounds like, a protective layer of film that you apply directly to glass. Window film helps reduce heat, reduce glare and protect against sun fading. Hire a professional company like Solar Art to install the window film to ensure there are no irregularities, so you can enjoy your space in comfort. Achieving near-immediate results, your home will reap the benefits of the protective film. Installation is a relatively quick and easy process that requires little maintenance to upkeep. 

Protection against UVA and UVB rays

If you’ve ever had a valuable painting or beautiful furniture that faded in the sunlight, you know just how destructive the sun’s rays can be. Window film can help block UV rays, protecting your fabrics, wall colors, art and hardwood floors from fading. UVA and UVB rays are also damaging to your skin, so it’s a good idea to prevent prolonged exposure.

Increased privacy

Decorative window film gives increased privacy

Privacy is extremely important, but views and natural light are often compromised for it. Closing the curtains might be a solution, but it also leaves you feeling shut in and it can get very dark. Window film can give you the privacy you are looking for without changing the look of your glass. Window film can help increase privacy without compromising views or even natural light. Depending on the window film you go with, people walking by will have a hard time seeing into your home and there are no curtains needed!

Reduced heat in your home or office

You’ll notice that on hot days, sunlight pouring into the house can result in rising temperatures indoors. While the solution may be to crank up your air conditioning, doing so also increases your electric bill. It’s a lose-lose situation. Fortunately, window film helps keep the sun from heating your home and reduces heat by up to 75%. Window film makes your space energy efficient which will not only reduce cooling costs, but might also qualify you for a rebate through your energy company.

Reduced glare in your home or office 

Reduce glare with window film

Bright sunlight may feel great for a short period, but the glare can get to be a bit much, especially if you’re working on the computer, trying to watch a movie, or conducting a conference presentation. Window film helps reduce glare by up to 62% and allows you to enjoy natural light without needing to block it with curtains or blinds. Enjoy the beautiful daylight without any glare. 

Custom decor factor 

Windows can look boring, especially if you just have blinds that are only lowered when needed. Decorative window film adds a special touch and makes your home feel more inviting. Decorative films are installed the same as solar film, but they give you an extra design to enjoy. However, even solar film looks amazing and can create a more elegant feel in a home!
