Why Are More People Having Window Film Installed


There are four basic reasons home owners are having window tinting installed on their windows. The number one reason is to reduce the amount of heat that comes through them in the summer time. On a typical summer’s day when the temperature is 85 degrees a car with its windows rolled up can reach 140 degrees in a matter of minutes. The sun has the same effect on home windows but since the rooms are larger the heat dissipates quickly raising the temperature in the whole house.

Many home owners do not sit next to their windows when the sun is shining through because the heat from the sun makes it too uncomfortable. To combat the heat homeowners use blinds and curtains in an attempt to reduce the heat. Unfortunately, some of the heat still radiates from the curtains and blinds while the rest of it circulates around the curtains and blinds raising the cost of cooling the house.

Homeowners are discovering that by installing sun protection film (tinted film) that their utility bill decreases by as little as 10% and as high as 50% each month. In a 2,000 square foot home that can equal a savings of over $360.00 each year. It also increases the life of the air conditioning system by 30% to 50%. Since sun controlled window film can block up to 84% of the solar rays sitting next to a window is much more comfortable and inviting.


Another important reason for putting sun protective film on your home windows is to protect your skin and home furnishings from harmful UV rays. Sun protection film blocks out 99% of UV radiation.

The #1 concern about UV rays is skin cancer. According to Cancer research:

  • 1 in 5 Americans will develop skin cancer during their lifetime.
  • 85% of melanomas are associated with exposure to UV radiation.
  • Recent research found that drivers in America are more prone to get skin cancer on the left side of their face and arms due to the exposure to UV rays while they are driving.

Skin cancer is the most commonplace form of cancer. “Just because you are in your home does not mean you are protected from UV rays. The Skin Cancer Foundation published an article by Perry Robins, MD on their website saying: “To see the damage that untreated glass can do, take a close look at the furnishings in your home that are hit by direct sunlight. If the sun has faded the color of your sofa, it can just as easily damage your skin when you sit there.”

The Cancer Foundation over the last few years has begun recommending that people put sun protective film on their windows because UV rays are reflected off the floor and walls. White paint can reflect up to 22% of UV radiation and floors, even dark colored can reflect from 8% to 12% UV radiation

UV radiation can discolor your wood flooring in a very short time. If you have a wooden floor that is exposed to the sun move the furniture and lift your rugs to see if they are damaged. UV radiation can cost you thousands of dollars in floor repair and furniture replacement.


Another advantage of sun protective film is privacy. Darker window films can allow a large degree of natural light into your home while blocking the view from prying eyes into your home. As long as your home is darker than the outside the outside view is blocked. However, when the sun goes down and your house lit with lights you will want to pull you shades or curtains because people can see in through the windows.

When ordering you sun protective film let the professional know that privacy is a concern. You can get sun protective film that will provide some privacy or a film that completely blocks the view both ways. There are several decorative films that can be purchased other than the typical white and black film.


We live in troublesome times, with civil unrest and brazen criminals who are determined to take what you have security film purchases are on the rise. If you own a business security film can eliminated the smash and grab bandits. When security film is installed by a professional the smash and grab bandits give up quickly because it takes a long time to break through the window.

The ideal window for a criminal is one that can be broken instantly allowing the criminal access to your home or business in less than 15 seconds. Criminals don’t want a lot of noise or have to spend several minutes trying to hammer their way inside; this is a good way to get caught.

Although some criminals break into a house through the front door, a patio door is the preferred way of access. It is generally in the back of the house where no one can see or hear what they are doing. For a determined criminal security film may not keep them out but within the 3 to 5 minutes it would take for them to gain access the police can be called or the owner has enough time to get a firearm for protection.
