Window Tint Myths Dispelled

As a window film company, we are asked a lot of questions.  And that is fine by us, we love helping people out and helping them make an informed decision for their home investment!  One of the questions we are  asked most often is,“Will window tint make my windows too dark?” And our answer is a sound “NO!”. The way it works is, in all reality,  you have complete control over the actual shade and intensity with which type of film you choose. Other important facts that are in your control as well are opacity and reflectivity… so it’s really up to you.   As it stands, just changing the color, darkness or reflectivity of your Denver home’s windows is not all that the tint is doing either. That’s right, window tinting is more than just meets the eye and has a number of benefits for your home beyond just appearance!

Window Tinting Benefits For Your Denver Home

Heat: The summer sun’s heat is intense here at a mile high!  Even at lower altitudes, windows are the number one cause of heat gain in most of today’s homes. Window film provides nearly invisible protection for your windows which reduces up to 67% of the sun’s heat and cooling costs by up to 30%.  All of this helps your HVAC health and extends its life too.

Glare: A very common reason to apply home window film is to get rid of the staggering glare through your Denver home’s windows. In fact, many window films were created specifically created to reduce glare while preserving views.  After all, you likely live in Colorado in part for the mountain views–don’t cover them with blinds and drapes!

Fading: The sun’s UV rays are the main culprit when it comes to fading your interior furnishings. Most, if not all, home window films say they block 99.9% UV protection.  For the most part that is true but we at Denver Home Window Tinting can help you sort through the best brands like 3M, Enerlogic or Vista to fit for your particular needs.

Don’t let the fear of dark windows stop you from living the best life in your Denver home through window tinting. Contact Denver Home Window Tinting today for a free consultation!
