Window Tinting: Stained Glass window tinting?

Have you heard about stained glass window tinting?

Adding a unique flavor to your home can be challenging. If you have a classic or rustic feeling home it can be even harder. If you’ve always loved the look of stained glass windows but where put off because they can be inefficient and expensive, then we may have a solution. That solution is stained glass window tinting. What is that? It’s a type of decorative window tinting that turns your regular, highly efficiency window into a stained glass beauty.

This tint is stretched over the window much like a standard window film, but the design on it mimics that of more expensive stained glass. You don’t have to remove the window, or go shopping for the right panes, just have the film made and get it installed by professionals (or yourself if you’ve got the DIY know-how).

A stained glass window can add a beautiful look to any home, but to make the best use of it it should be placed somewhere where it can be best viewed and appreciated. Most stained glass windows are places in or around a front door or in a bathroom for a colorful privacy window. Indoor porches, sunrooms, or any areas with a skylight are also great ideas for a stained glass window tinting. Anywhere where the patterns can be viewed and admired easily.

Stained glass windows can get expensive quick. Pre-made stained glass can run up to $150 per panel and can go as high as $10,000 dollars for a larger panel. If you want it custom made, it gets even more expensive. An artist may charge up to $1,000 for a single pane of custom stained glass. Ouch!

How dark should your Home Window Tinting be?

How dark should your window tinting be?

Window tinting has many benefits. Some of these benefits we’ve already covered. If you’ve decided to get some tinting done for your home there’s one decision you need to keep in mind, how dark should your windows 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. Security film provides a screen that will keep the glass from shattering when hit with a blunt force. This means burglars will have a much harder time getting in. They are also available in darker tints to help maintain privacy.

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!

Commercial Window Tinting

3 Benefits Of Window Tinting For Commercial Properties

Window Tinting For Commercial Buildings

There are several benefits for commercial properties and buildings to install high-quality window tinting. The three main benefits include the provisions of; ROI, comfort, and privacy.

Return On Investment: 

First of all, window tinting can reduce the heat transfer from the sun by up to 85%. That means that window tinting your office windows could save the operation money! A building with windows of any size will see a return on investment, because heat stays out and the air conditioner can be used less. You don’t have to wait to see the changes either, applying window tinting yields immediate and measurable results.

Comfort: Having windows in your place of business means that it’s prone to problems like hot spots, glare, and heat that causes fluctuating temperatures. Quality window tinting; however, provides up to 99% protection of Ultraviolet light as well as reduces glares up to 95%. Commercial window tinting helps regulate temperatures by decreasing heat transmission and glare, getting rid of hotspots means that your air conditioner doesn’t have to work as hard to keep that one spot at the desired temperature meanwhile making the rest of the building frigid.

Privacy: Whether you want a little buffer between the outside world and your shop or you need individual office space privacy, a quality window tinting job can take care of the issue.

***BONUS***: Yes, we said three benefits, but there’s more! *Insert Genius Laughter*

Windows on the outside of a building are usually the weakest point of the structure. A thick security window film will help hold the glass together if it’s shattered. This combined with a dark film can reduce the likelihood of burglary. FormulaOne by AES offers several different films to meet your specific needs. We also offer films that provide insulating benefits year round, so when the winter months come around you’ll be able to stay warm while spending less.

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.
