We all have those home projects that should be done, but don’t have to be done; staining the deck, repainting the living room, and finally cleaning out the garage. As life gets busy with all the things you have to do, those should projects get pushed farther and farther down the list.
One of those home projects that ends up on so many homeowners’ lists is window tinting. Sure, it sounds like one of those should projects that can be put off until another day or even another season, but we’re here to tell you why you should make the investment and soon you’ll understand that you have to put it at the top of the list.
What is Window Tinting and Why Does Your Home Need It?
At NuVue Window Tint & Graphics, we specialize in residential and commercial window tinting. Our business is not automotive tinting, our family-owned and operated business is trained in residential window tinting, along with commercial needs as well.
Not only is window tinting aesthetically pleasing, but it can help reduce heating and cooling costs through windows. According to the US Department of Energy, 30% of a home’s heating energy is lost through windows. Keep the heat in during the winter and protect your home from damaging sunlight in the summer. NuVue Window Tint & Graphics has experience in both solar window film and heat control window film.
It’s also a solid investment for yourself and your home. According to The US Department of Energy, window film and tinting is a “top-tier technology” for energy conservation. If that wasn’t enough, the investment has one of the fastest paybacks in just three years!
Look Good, Feel Good
Not only can window tinting benefit your home with increased curb appeal, but it can also protect the things inside–both people and your belongings.
At NuVue Window Tint & Graphics we also know that window tinting can cut down on UVB and UVA ray exposure. An article by skincancer.org, reports that window glass blocks most UVB rays (the ones that can burn you), but UVA rays (which can cause tanning and premature aging) can still affect people. Although window film and tinting is capable of blocking up to 99 percent of UV radiation. The article also calls window tinting, “an effective solution that’s often underused.”
As it protects the people inside your home, those harmful rays will also not affect your belongings. Faded paint, furniture, carpet and other items will be more protected from the sun’s rays with professionally installed window tinting.
Protection and Value
Similar to health protections, the tinting of windows at a home can serve as an extra level of privacy and security. It may sound silly, but how many times have you driven past a home without blinds or curtains? Passersby can see everything in the home without the extra level of coverage. Not only that, but with an extra layer, it makes breaking into a home more difficult, as the glass of the window is held together longer, adding valuable seconds to law enforcement’s response time.
