About Solar Control Window Tinting
Windows play an important role in occupant comfort and climate control. The Department of Energy states that 30% of the energy used to cool and heat your home goes out the windows. Residential and Commercial window films offer a cost-effective way to help minimize energy lost through your windows. Window tint keeps your space cool in the summer and warm in the winter by reject heat during the hotter months and retaining existing heat during the colder months. The biggest benefit of home and office window tint is how it regulates internal temperatures no matter what the weather is outside. By investing in sun blocking window tint, you will be able minimize your energy costs by running your A/C less during the summer and your heater less during the winter. Heat control window tint can reject up to 85% of the sun’s total energy resulting in balanced room temperatures and a more comfortable environment. Infrared light is responsible for more than 50% of the heat you feel, but our solar control window films reduce heat gain by blocking up to 98% of infrared rays coming in through your glass. Many homeowners without heat reduction window film might simply close the blinds or curtains to reduce interior temps from rising. This not only blocks out the sun’s natural rays from shining in but traps heat in between the window and the window treatment allowing the heat to still pass through the glass and into your home. Sun control window tint blocks the heat from ever entering through the glass in the first place and allows you to use less artificial lighting, saving you on energy costs. Commercial settings might choose to turn up the A/C so that it offsets the extra heat coming in through the windows. This can make the energy bill skyrocket during the summer months. Heat rejecting window film allows you to run the A/C less and allow the natural light in, saving you on energy costs. We offer a wide range of heat reduction window tint to help keep you cool, comfortable, and more energy efficient.
Glare is a common issue for both homeowners and business owners in residential and commercial spaces. Sun glare can be a real nuisance obstructing screen viewing, blocking access to outside views, decreasing productivity, interrupting time with company, and for some light induced migraines. The sunlight coming in from your windows bounces off objects in the room (especially screens) and then enters your eyes. If too much light enters your eye, you will notice that it is difficult and uncomfortable to see. People have different tolerances when it comes to how bright light affects them. The first reaction for many when experiencing glare is to close the blinds, drapes or curtains which also blocks out the natural light either placing you in the dark or forcing you to use more artificial lighting. Natural light not only brightness your space, but helps with productivity, allows you to use less artificial lighting thus lowering your energy consumption, and is proven to lift your mood. Anti-glare window film softens the light to help reduce glare while still allowing natural sunlight in and is effective as soon as it is installed.

Our glare reduction window film is designed to address all your glare problems, including reducing eye strain and offering a more comfortable space.
