Commercial and Property Tinting Pros and Cons
Window Tinting Pros
Lower energy costs: As earlier mentioned, solar window tinting filters out UV rays and only allows enough light through into the house.
This contributes to at least 40% in energy savings on cooling costs.
This method is therefore more energy-efficient and cost-effective as compared to replacing your windows.
Filters UV rays: UV rays can have many adverse effects in your house/office.
It causes fading to your upholstery, carpets, furniture, drapery, and artwork as well.
Computers, monitors and office equipment exposed to the same start fading off as well.
Improved comfort: The solar window film not only keeps heat and the sun out but also gets rid of glare and softens the light in the room.
This creates an even temperature and comfortable lighting for your eyes.
Improved security: The window tint film holds the glass together hence preventing possible shattering.
Broken window glass are dangerous as they can inflict injuries and cuts.
Whether an accident or a burglary, you can be assured that there will be no shattered glass pieces lying all over.
Rebates and tax credit: Tax incentives and rebates from using commercial window tinting can help save you lots of money in the long run.
Voided warranties: Some window manufacturers may advise against applying any form of window tint.
Installing the tint anyways voids their service warranty.
However, once you get a professional company this should not be a problem.
Application challenges: While a smooth glass pane may be easy to apply tint, some doors, and windows, particularly French, can be quite challenging.
Attempting to install tint on these means spending a better part of the day or two working on the individual panes.
A professional company however will have no problems with this.
Access to quality products: The quality of commercial window tinting films can vary in quality.
This means you need to be rather good at picking such films to get the best quality material in the industry.
Choice: Window tint comes in various specifications and quality.
For instance, the much newer shiny tint material reflects only the UV light and allow natural light to flow through.
Dark films on the other hand not only block UV rays but also absorb heat as well as some of the natural light.
One needs to know exactly what to choose when shopping for window-tint, otherwise, you will have to dig deeper into your pockets for interior lighting.
