Are you considering new windows? Do your windows let stuffy heat and blinding glare into your home? Whether your windows have old, outdated glass or costly heat-trapping tendencies, residential window tinting can help.   Window tinting is an effective, affordable alternative to window replacement that makes your old glass like new. The clear panes of years past could be costing you hundreds of extra dollars on your energy bills each month. That’s like throwing money out the window! Tinted windows can save you tons of money in air-conditioning costs and they cost much less than a whole new set of windows. The treatment is easy to apply so the installation is safer than window replacement as well.   Low-e (low emissivity) tints are super energy efficient. The word “emissivity” refers to the amount of heat entering and exiting your home along with the huge temperature fluctuations that can occur as a result. Low-e window tinting stops up to 99% of UV rays from entering your home. This can drastically decrease cool air loss thereby slashing your monthly A/C bills while keeping you and your family comfortable. Plus, with no UV radiation, you don’t need to worry about sun-bleached floors and furniture anymore.   But window tinting does more than save you from sweltering sunlight. It also reduces window glare. Tinted windows let in an ideal amount of natural light. Finally you can stop squinting at your window, wishing for heavy curtains to block out the glare. With window tinting, there’s no need to sacrifice your view to the outside world with dramatic blackout treatments. Like a nice pair of sunglasses for your house, tinted windows actually allow you a clearer view of your yard.   If you love the energy benefits and the anti-glare effects of tinted windows but are apprehensive about their appearance, take heart: tinted windows look great too – in every light.
