There’s a lot of curiosity associated with dark tinted windows, whether used in cars or in a residential or commercial setting.
Housing window tinting is fast gaining in popularity across the world because of how effective window films are at blocking some of the sunlight and allowing in only as much light as necessary.
Building window tinting, shop window tinting and other types of commercial window tinting are widely used as well, but here, our focus is on house window tinting and everything associated with it.
The Scientific Case for House Window Tinting
For sure, there’s no life on our planet without sunlight. Sunlight is essential for plant growth and keeps us warm. But an excess of sunlight or a direct exposure to sunlight for many hours can affect the health and can be deeply discomforting.
The solar radiation consists of a visible spectrum of light, infrared light, which carries heat and ultraviolet radiation, which can be really quite dangerous for our health.
What house window tinting does is to prevent the ultraviolet and infrared light from getting in, while allowing a part of the visible light to get through. So this keeps the temperature inside as low as possible and ensures maximum privacy for those within.
What to Expect from Home Window Tinting?
There are many different reasons to get home window tinting done, depending on the requirements of the homeowner. One type of window tints may help to reduce heat, while another may offer greater privacy, as discussed earlier.
Energy saving is another important reason to get have the windows tinted. Window tints are particularly effective in Malaysia, when they prevent as much as 75 percent of the heat gain – which helps to bring down the air conditioning costs.
In most homes in the developed world, 45 percent of power bill relates to HVAC systems– which is why home window tinting can be so beneficial; it saves money.
Types of Window Tinting
There are several different types of window tinting, but first, it is important to have a good idea of why you need it in the first place. If privacy is what you want more than anything else, you should go for frosted window films, which effectively block others from seeing inside your house.
Heat reflective films are very good at keeping heat out, which saves energy bills. You can have UV protective tints to keep ultraviolet radiation out – this can be either tinted or clear, depending on what you need.
Then there are decorative window films that come in a variety of colours and styles – they reduce the heat that gets into the house and gives you the privacy that you expect as well.
