The Benefits of Window Film / Window Tints

Home Improvement
Window film or, as the product is also known, window tint, is a film or coating which improves the energy efficiency of your windows. Window films or window tints are adhesive films applied to the inside of your existing windows.
These window films can be transparent or tinted. Because they’re applied to windows you already have, the window films are usually installed as a retrofit. Homeowners can often install the film themselves, though some films must be installed by professionals. Make sure you check before purchasing, as this professional installation will add to the overall cost.
Most window films are made from clear polyester, which blocks the sun’s UV rays while allowing natural light in. Older technology uses dye or pigments to tint the films. These tinted films absorb instead of block the UV radiation. Tinted films, however, also block a lot of visible light. The modern polyester films are more durable than the tinted films, which can deteriorate after a lot of sun exposure.
Most window films are easy to clean. Simply use your regular household glass cleaner and a soft cloth.

Saving energy
Window film improves energy-efficiency by adding a layer of UV protection to your windows while allowing visible light in.
The window film or window tint improves energy-efficiency by reflecting the sun’s damaging UV radiation. This keeps your rooms cooler, meaning you will use less energy in your cooling system. Some window films help protect your windows from losing heat in the winter, too.

Low-emissivity films
The best window films to date are low-emissivity, or Low-E, films. These window films are made from with microscopically-thin metallic coatings. To date, Low-E coating or films are the most energy-efficient product, blocking up to 60 per cent of UV and infrared light, while allowing as much as 80 per cent of visible light into your home.

Which windows need window film?
Not every window needs to have window film. North-facing windows will not. West- and south-facing windows get the most UV radiation. If your home is south-facing, you could consider installing a glare-reducing film. Some films reduce as much as 25 per cent of the sun’s glare.

Window film protects your belonging from fading. Carpets, furniture, and photos are all damaged by UV radiation.

Tinted glass or coloured glass
Tinted glass is glass which has colour added during the manufacturing process. The chemical formula of the glass is changed.
As with window film, coloured glass can improve your home’s energy efficiency.
Coloured window glass is also a popular way to enhance the curb appeal of your home. Coloured door glass can improve privacy, just like window films do, while still allowing light to enter. Stained glass windows or doors are also very attractive.
Most of the reputed residential window installers and manufacturers will offer coloured glass, and you may be able to order custom colours if you have a specific colour scheme you love.
