Reduce Glare and Energy Costs With Residential Glass Tinting

Reduce Glare and Energy Costs With Residential Glass Tinting

In addition to making sure they're property weather stripped; take a look at the glass itself. Is it insulated or tinted? Residential window glass can be made much more energy-efficient, which in turn becomes very cost-effective in the long term for your home. If tinting isn't an option, maybe it's time to improve your home's efficiency by window glass replacement with insulated glass.

Tinted glass is an unobtrusive way to improve your home's efficiency. A high-quality residential tinting company will be able to apply the tinting film so that you never know it's there. Once it is there, you'll have the following benefits:

• Reduced energy costs - in the summertime, window glass that's been tinted reflects sunlight to reduce solar heat gain. In wintertime, the tint acts as a thin thermal shield to reduce heating costs.

• Increased safety in case your window breaks - the film used for residential glass tinting creates a very thin barrier that's resistant to shattering.

• Reduced glare - tinted glass reflects the sun from the outside, which means fewer glares for you inside

• Less fading of interior finishes - furniture, carpets, and wallpaper all fade drastically when hit by sunlight day after day. Tinted glass screens out a high percentage of the UV rays that cause fading.
