How dark should your Home Window Tinting be?

Window Tinting comes in various shades from very light to almost completely black. What you want will often determine how dark the tinting will be. So, how do you know the shade your getting will suit what you want? Formula One has a handy little guide to help you out.

If you want more privacy: If your tinting your windows to try and add some privacy to an office or meeting room, then a darker, more reflective tint is what you want to look for. The reflective tint will cut down the glare for those inside while making it harder for people from the outside. You won’t want to do this if atmosphere is a concern as the darker tint will cut down the natural light drastically. This reduction will leave the room feeling gloomy.

For more natural views: If privacy is not a main concern but you still want to gain the benefits of window tinting, you can invest in invisible window tinting that will lower the heat of the room without cutting down on the level of sunlight in the room.

For Security: If your looking to add a little security to your home, then security film might be the way to go.

Window Tinting as a safety measure?

Window Tinting can help cool your home but could it also protect you in other ways?

Well, in a way, yes. Window tints and film mostly help protect you by strengthening the glass panes and reducing the chances of shattering. Window tinting and films are applied by stretching it over the windows themselves. This lets professionals install window tints and films without having to remove or replace glass panes but it also has the secondary benefit of giving the window another layer of strength.  In addition, the film also helps protect against shattering by acting as a net to catch the shards. The glass may crack, but it’s far less likely to shatter and send glass shards at you and your family.

Additional Privacy

A vehicle with tinted windows is harder to look into, some people like the privacy that gives them as well as how it hides any valuables they keep in there car. The same idea goes for window tinting in your home. If a thief can’t see into your home, they’ll be less likely to break in. Additionally, because the window tinting will strengthen your windows it’ll be that much harder for a thief to break in.

Extra protection from storms

Raging storms are a scary thought. Storms like to throw debris around. During one of these storms the risk of shattering windows is high. Window tinting provides additional protection by not only strengthening your homes windows but by also preventing shattering. The window tinting can catch the cracked glass and keep it from spilling into your home with the rain and wind. Storms are scary enough, don’t add the extra stress of worrying about shattered glass in your home.

Window tinting and film are a solid investment in more ways than just saving energy. Give Formula One by AES a call today at 405-513-6400!
