Having natural light in your home makes a big difference. Not only does it make your home feel more welcoming and inviting, but it can also save you money on electricity costs since you don’t have to turn on ceiling lights and lamps as often. So naturally, many of our customers are concerned about window film taking away the natural light they love. But don’t worry, window film won’t darken your Denver home windows. Here’s what you need to know.


Is All Window Film Tinted?

First, let’s clear up a common misconception. Not all window films are tinted. Unlike automotive films, architectural films don’t rely on dark color dyes to block heat. Instead, they contain trace amounts of materials like metal and ceramic which reject heat naturally.

You may be surprised to heat that some window films are actually totally clear and see-through! These window films are designed to let in large amounts of natural light while still controlling heat and blocking UV rays.

Sometimes, homeowners will choose a window film with a slight tint, but this is usually for aesthetic reasons. Neutral films have an elegant look and can help add to an upscale atmosphere. But you don’t have to go this route. If you don’t like the look of tinted film, you can simply install a clear energy efficient window film instead.


Why Should I Consider Window Film for My Home?

Window films are a great investment for Denver homes. Not only do they help to improve window energy efficiency, but they also offer benefits like:

  • Improve your indoor comfort
  • Protect your interior and belongings from UV rays that cause fading
  • Cut back on heating and cooling costs
  • Reduce glare and prevent eye strain
  • Protect your family’s skin and eye health
