Many people want window tint on their homes and cars, but don’t know if it’s really worth it. Would it surprise you to know that this affordable upgrade can also save you money? Or that it can protect you from harm? How about giving you privacy? Window film is great for those looking for budget renovations on their home. Here’s why window tint is really worth the money.
According to Homeguide, prices for a window tinting a house, on average, range from $300 dollars to $800. If you have a larger home it can reach above $1000. That should include the cost of materials and labor. The great thing about this price is that it is a one time deal. That window tint can last well over a decade and provide you savings in other areas as well. Depending on your home, you can have window tint at an affordable price, and focus on other home projects. It can also boost the value of your home, and make it more comfortable for your family. Your home’s windows can be your greatest ally in cutting costs at home.
Cut back on your energy bill
Your electric bill will no longer skyrocket when the Texas summer heat rises in the triple digits. Applying window tint around your home keeps the heat from trapping itself inside your home. Not only that, but you won’t have to worry about “hotspots” in your home. Hotspots often trap heat in your home and can make certain rooms almost unbearable during the day. Don’t wait to apply window tint as it starts working the first day it is applied. In addition, you can still have natural lighting in your home, but you don’t have to deal with harmful UV rays. You will also be able to reduce glare in your home, without hampering your visibility. Start your summer off right by adding window tint as soon as you can.
Protect your furniture
Because you will no longer have hotspots in your home, you won’t have to worry about your furniture fading. Furniture fading happens when your couch or chair is exposed to long periods of direct sunlight. This can happen indoors or outdoors. However, with window tint that is a problem of the past. Your new furniture will be safe from fading and cracking. Not only are you saving immediately with your energy bill, but you are saving money in the future by keeping your items free of harmful UV rays. Sun control window film is the best choice if you live in a particularly hot area or just want to save money while protecting your investments.
Window tint is also going to provide you with security. How so? The thick tint itself holds glass together when it is hit by an object or person. Even if the window cracks those pieces will still stay in place due to the film. If you have kids, you understand how valuable this can be. Oftentimes, your windows will be smacked with balls or other toys during the day, which means you have to constantly worry about buying a new window. Adding window tint is an effective way to make sure your home is protected against accidents.
But that’s not all, though. Window tint is also going to protect you from would-be thieves and give you privacy. Oftentimes with window film, it will take a criminal more tries and more time to break into a home. They will need to at least strike the window with a bat or metal object and smack it several times just to break. Thieves hate this because they need to move quickly and efficiently to steal from you. Make it hard for a criminal to steal from you with window tint. It can even protect your art collection.
Lastly, you still have privacy because of window tint. Gone are the days of purple window film. Window film is barely noticeable now, but makes it much harder to see into your home. Yet, you will still be able to clearly see out your windows.
