Why Denver Homeowners Should Consider Window Film For their Family’s Health

May 13, 2018 in Residential Window Film, UV Protection Tint

Growing up, we’re taught to put on sunblock before we go outside to protect our skin from the sun. Uv rays from the sun cause cellular mutations that lead to skin cancer and other diseases. But that doesn’t mean that the sunlight is bad for your health all around. In fact, there are many ways that the sun affects our bodies, both good and bad.

We’re exposed to the sun when we’re both outside and indoors. During our time spent inside at work or at home, our skin and eyes still make contact with the sun coming in through windows. This can have both good and bad implications for your family’s health. But how do you keep the bad rays of sunlight out while allowing the healthy rays of sunlight in?

We have a solution for Denver homeowners. Installing window film can help keep uv radiation out of your home while increasing the presence of the natural light your family wants and needs.

Window Film: Will It Darken My Denver Home’s Windows?

May 9, 2018 in Aggrigate, Energy Efficient Window Tinting, UV Protection Tint

Window Tinting Questions Answered By An Expert

One of the most frequent questions we at Denver Home Window Tinting is–”Will window film darken my home’s windows?” The short answer is–How much your windows are darkened (or not darkened) is dependent on the product you choose and what level and application you use it for. However, read below to find out more and which films will most affect the shade or clarity of your windows and how to choose a film that best suits you shade preference and needs.

How Window Film Works And Which One Is Right For You Denver Home

The type of film you choose will end up determining the level of darkness, opacity or reflectivity. This means the power is yours to choose what you like best– so it’s really up to you, the consumer! With so many varieties of films on today’s market, there is no such thing as a one-size-fits-all solution with window film. It is critical that you, as the consumer, thoroughly consult with a window film professional on the types of window films they offer for your particular needs, in order to get on that works for you. But keep in mind, at the bare minimum window film should offer UV protection, heat rejection, glare control and a basic level of added security. Below we have outlined the different levels of window film ranging from basic to mid-range to premium, this will help you get an idea of how things work, so when you do consult with us, or another film expert, you will have a foundation to work from.

Types Of Window Film For Your Home

Basic Window Film:  Is typically called metalized or “dual-reflective” film. It contains microscopic pieces of metal which reflect and bounce heat and glare off a window–much like a mirror. The great thing about this type of window film is, it is energy efficient and will reduce heat, glare, and utility costs. But, it is not always the aesthetic and/or style customers like for their homes
Mid-Range Window Film: Is dyed, pigment or hybrid window film. It implements a special blend of dyes and pigments to absorb the sun’s heat and UV rays. This film is also energy efficient, reduces glare and solar heat gain. This saves you money but is more popular because of the reduced reflectivity and more natural look from both inside and outside. However, this film doesn’t perform the best in very hot or overly sunny applications.
Premium Window Film: Modern premium window films are made from ceramic and fine metals. Ceramic is very heat-absorbant and actually used as an insulator on spacecrafts and power lines. It is definitely better than mid-range film at absorbing heat and much more attractive than basic window film. By far the best part about this film is–it comes in nearly any shade or reflectivity level, even to the point of reducing your windows’ natural reflective, enhancing your view.
