Window Tint

The Solar Guys - Thursday, January 02, 2014

We all want to save money on our electric bills and window tint from The Solar Guys is a great way to stop heat from coming into your home or office in the summer. Studies show that the doors and windows of any building are the main places that heat transference occurs. If you can stop it there you can save up to 30% on your utility bills in peak season. Have you ever felt how hot the glass on a window in full sun becomes in summer? This is the heat transference that a good window film can prevent.

Applying a window tint is one of the best investments you can make in your home. Top quality Huber Optik window films have so many extra benefits, besides keeping the heat on the right side of the glass. By blocking up to 99% of harmful UV rays tinted windows help protect your furnishings, drapes and carpets from fading and far from decreasing the view, these tints actually improve it, by cutting out glare like a good pair of sunglasses. You can choose a dark or reflective film to make it harder to see into your house from the outside and minimizes the risk of flying glass in the case of breakage by causing the pieces of glass to stick together.

There are many types of window tint on the market. The trouble with many of them is that they contain either dyes or metals. Over time a dye will fade and any metal in the film will corrode causing demetalization. Huber Optik makes spectrally tuned ceramic films which block heat without impairing the visibility of the window. Ceramic is so good at blocking heat that the space shuttle used it as insulation.

There is always the option to replace the windows with insulated double or triple pane windows and if the frames are degrading or the panes are loose that might be a good option. However if the windows are in good shape they can be tinted with a good quality film for about one fifth the cost and still get excellent results. Most window tint is applied to the inside of the window so it lasts a long time and since no chemicals are involved in the application process there is no mess, smell, or environmental hazard.

Depending on the location of the windows, or glass doors, there are many choices in terms of not only temperature control, but sun blockage, shatter proofing, visibility form the outside. So if you are ready to “green” your home or office and save money on utility bills one of the best moves you can make is to upgrade your home with a high quality window tint.
