There are a number of improvements you can do to make your home more efficient and comfortable, such as increasing insulation, installing ceiling fans, or adding an energy efficient heating and cooling system. Did you know that one of the most cost effective things you can do is install residential window film? It is making homes in all climates more efficient and more comfortable year-round. It reduces harmful ultraviolet rays, glare, fading, and hot spots. It also increases privacy, safety, and efficiency. It really is the best thing you can do for your home.
What are the Benefits?
Fade Protection from the Sun
Over time, the sun fades furniture, rugs, hardwood floors, and drapes in its path. But professionally installed window film blocks out 99% of the damaging ultraviolet rays that ordinary windows allow in. This will prolong the life of your furniture and soft goods as well as make the home environment more comfortable for you and your family.
Keep Temperature and Glare under Control
Residential window tinting reflects the hot sun in the summer and keeps you comfortable all year round and will deflect annoying glare while reading or watching television.
A Protective Barrier
Ordinary glass will break and splinter, but having window film on your windows can reduce the likelihood of injury because it helps hold fragments of shattered glass in place.
Easy to Maintain
Window films come with a durable surface that can be cleaned with most conventional methods of window cleaning.
Care and Cleaning
It will take about 3 to 5 days for your new window film to fully dry.
The film can dry in a few hours in the summer and up to a few weeks in the colder winter months. During this time the window will appear hazy and there will be some small water pockets caused by excess moisture trapped between the glass and the film forming a kind of 'blister'. Do not squeegee, prod, or poke these water blisters, they will disappear once all the water has evaporated.
