If the windows in your home are looking a little dated or are allowing too much energy leakage, replacing them isn’t your only option. At Brower Tinting and Graphics, we offer cost-saving solutions for your home. Here are some reasons to consider applying window film rather than replacing your old windows with an expensive new set:
1. IT’S COST EFFECTIVE
Window film can help with energy maintenance and lower the overall cost of your energy bills. By stopping nearly 80 percent of solar energy from coming through the glass, you can radically cut down on cooling costs – in some cases, even more so than installing an air conditioner.
2. GLASS PROTECTION
The most exterior layer of window film contains a scratch resistant coating, which protects the surface of the glass from natural elements, accidents, vandalism, and burglary. They also help keep older windows shatter-proof to limit damage in the event of a disaster or accident.
Ever wondered how those skyscrapers got their glassy-reflective appearance? Special tinting applied to the window exterior or interior can change visible reflectiveness from about 8 percent (normal, clear glass) to almost 60 percent (very reflective). All-metal films can also change the visible color of the window, leaving a silver, grey, light green, or bronze appearance.
Tired of having to draw the blinds to see the TV during daylight hours? Applying our window film can filter out unwanted ultraviolet light, heat, and glare and improve the overall comfort of your home.
If you spend a lot of time on your ground floor, you’re probably wary of the “fishbowl” effect. Luckily, you can restore privacy to your home without dramatically reducing incoming light. There are decorative film options as well, leaving the window looking like frosted glass or with an etched pattern.
When you’re ready to find a window film option that’s right for you and your home, feel free to contact us with any questions or to schedule an appointment.
