The benefits of tinting your home

Window tinting is the process of applying a special film to your windows to reduce the amount of light that passes through. While many people choose to tint their windows for privacy or aesthetic reasons, there are actually a whole range of other great benefits that you gain by tinting your windows.

Reduce glare

There’s nothing worse than sitting down to watch your favourite movie and then battling to see the screen because of glare. Even with curtains or blinds, streaks of light can peak through the cracks and blind you. By installing window tinting you can the interruption from the sun’s glare without interruption from the sun’s glare.

Improve energy efficiency

Keeping your home cool can be a real challenge, especially during summer. You run your air conditioning and fans all day just to get some relief, but then you pay for it when your next power bill arrives. By installing window tinting you block the sun’s rays and dramatically reduce the temperature in your home, meaning you’ll spend far less cooling your home.

Protect your furniture

The Australian heat is notorious for causing sun damage to upholstery and other items of furniture. In just a year or two a brand-new couch can be completely discoloured. If you install window tinting, you can block a large amount of the sun’s rays and prevent fading.

Protect your skin

If the sun can damage your couch through the window, imagine what it can do to your skin. It might seem ridiculous, but you can get sunburn from siting on a couch close enough to the window.  By applying tinting to your windows, you can block harmful UV rays and reduce your risk of skin cancer.
