There’s nothing quite like sitting in a brightly lit room and enjoying a good book on a sunny summer day. That is, of course, unless that room is just a little too bright. A well-lit room can be a gift, but it can also be a hassle when your room faces the sun at the wrong time of day.

If the summer sun is a drain on your home’s cooling costs or it’s bleaching out your furnishings, don’t reach for the blackout curtains yet. Thanks to innovations in residential window tinting, you can enjoy all the best parts of the sunlight you love without the things you don’t.

In this post from the team at Sun Control, we’re breaking down the top benefits of residential window tinting. To get more out of your windows, give us a call today!

  1. Protect Your Furnishings

If you’ve ever moved a rug or sofa and realized the ground underneath is a different color from the rest of your floor, you’ve experienced solar bleaching. This process can damage your art, furniture, and floors little by little each day. Residential window tinting protects your furnishings from the most harmful sunlight, protecting your furnishings without sacrificing precious sunlight.

  1. Save on Energy Costs

One of the best reasons to invest in residential window tinting is the payoff in terms of energy savings. Professionally installed residential window tinting filters out specific types of sunlight, allowing light in while reducing the transfer of solar heat. Not only can this reduce your energy bills, but it can also reduce wear on tear on your HVAC system.

  1. Protect Your Family

You don’t usually think you need sunscreen inside your home. But if the sun’s UV rays can be harmful to your furnishings, they can also damage your family’s skin.

  1. Get Rid of Glare

Do you have to close your blinds to watch TV or use your computer during the daytime? Window tint helps to eliminate glare.

  1. Improve Home Security

Most breaking and entering criminals want to get in and get out as quickly as possible. Security films make that task much harder and can be combined with any type of residential window tinting.

  1. Improve Privacy

If you want privacy without sacrificing your view of the world outside, we can install privacy window films that give you all the sunlight you want.

  1. Add a Decorative Touch

In addition to traditional residential window tinting, we offer a complete range of decorative window films. Get the look of real stained or etched glass for your transom windows or shower door without the hefty price tag.
