Top 4 Reasons To Switch From Curtains To Window Tinting

Window Tinting Countdown…Ready, Set, Replace!

Watch any home improvement show and you’ll see that curtains are a mainstay of many homes, but there are benefits to using window tinting film over having bulky curtains. Here, we provide the top 4 reasons you should think about replacing your curtains for window tinting:

#1- UV Protection: 

Unless you have your windows tinted, Ultraviolet Rays (UV) are going to come through your windows. Unfortunately, using a window shade or curtains won’t entirely block the UV light from getting through. The damage can be detrimental to your home’s furnishings and can fade carpet, walls, and the curtains themselves. UV rays can also affect your health. Rays of UV light are known to cause skin damage and, if overly exposed without protection, even cancer. Without a UV blocking window tinting film, chances are you and your home are being affected by UV light. Professionally installed window tinting can reduce UV light in your home by up to 99.99% offering a lot of protection.

#2- Saving Energy:

We talk a lot about energy efficiency here at FormulaOne, but it can’t be overstated. Getting professionally installed window tinting will help your windows perform better in the summer, keeping your cooling costs down. Our Enerlogic brand also helps the performance of your windows by increasing their insulation properties. Curtains simply can’t compete with good window tinting.

#3- Reducing Glare:

If you use curtains then you know you have to keep them closed all the time if the light from a windows falls on the TV. Sometimes, this means you have to choose between having a decent view and watching the TV. Window tinting fixes this issue by reducing the glare and allowing you to still use the window without blocking it off. Getting your home’s windows tinted is a good option if you’ve ever felt trapped behind heavy curtains.

#4- Privacy: 

Window films can prevent people from looking into your home as well as adding an extra layer of security. The films that we place on windows will make windows more durable, often preventing the glass from scattering once the window has been broken. Let’s see curtains do that.
