Here in Perth we’re blessed with seemingly endless summers – lazy days in the sun are the order of the day during the warmer months of the year. But along with glorious sunshine come naturally hotter temperatures inside your house. And that’s just one reason why tinting the windows of your home should be on your to do list this year.
Here are 7 key benefits of window tinting for Perth homes.
Block The Glare
One of the main reasons people choose to tint their windows in their home is to block the glare from the sun. On devices like computers and TVs, glare can be an increased strain on the eye and cause you to close your blinds or curtains to get rid of the glare.
Having to keep blinds and curtains closed during the day blocks out the natural light we all need for our well-being. Window tinting on your home allows you to block the glare but still get all the benefits of natural daylight.
Increased UV Protection
Another of the key benefits of window tinting for your home is that it blocks UV light, which we all know can be extremely harmful.
Residential window tinting can block up to 99% of UVA and UVB rays, compared to around 25% for your normal window glass.
If you want to protect your family’s skin even while they are indoors, window tinting is a great option.
Improve Energy Efficiency
Because home window tinting prevents harsh light from entering your house, your house will stay cooler and need to use less energy to keep cool.
The tint application we use at Precision Window Tinting on Perth homes can block up to 84% of the heat that would normally penetrate a standard window with no tint.
As a result, this reduces the carbon footprint of your home and saves on energy.
Because you’ll be saving energy on cooling your home, you’ll also be saving money on your energy bills.
As the window tint blocks heat from entering your home, you won’t have to reach for that air con remote as often, or run it for as long on those sweltering summer days.
And who doesn’t want to save money on their energy bills?
Day Time Privacy
Not only does window tinting reduce heat and glare, but it also creates an additional level of privacy within the home.
During the daytime, the interior of your home will not be visible to anyone outside the house. Even with windows or blinds open, your home is invisible to those outdoors.
During the evening however, you will need to use other window dressings for privacy screening.
Added Street Appeal & Increased Home Value
Window tinting can add street appeal to your home.
And due to the additional benefits we’ve discussed above, it can also add value to your home, when it comes time to sell up and move on.
One interesting benefit of home window tinting that not many people are aware of is the fact that it can provide an additional level of security for your home.
Windows are often the weak spot of a home when it comes to intruders. By adding a security and safety film to your home windows, you can increase the strength of your windows, and some films can even withstand explosions and prevent shattering when impacted.
