Installing a window tint in your home or office will save you money on electricity bills, protect and prolong the life of furniture, equipment, artworks, and more.
When the Brisbane sun gets sweltering, it can sometimes feel like constantly running air con is the only key to survival. When the rays of the sun enter your home, they heat the air and your air conditioner has to run longer to counteract the heat. This translates into higher electrical bills. Adding a window tint can save you a huge amount of money and keep you cooler at the same time. If installed by trained professionals, tinting is a perfect addition to your home that will save you money and block heat.
A Wonder in Winter
As temperatures start to drop, window tinting also saves you money on heating. By keeping the cold outside at bay and holding in the warmth from your heating system, tinting allows you to turn the heaters off earlier and save. Whether it’s office window tinting or it’s for the home, this is an investment that will pay off.
Protect Your Belongings and Home Interior
The light coming through your windows is far from a passive force. While the infrared radiation heats up your home, ultraviolet radiation is attacking your curtains, carpet, paintings on the wall, desks, computer – basically everything ultraviolet radiation touches will fade and deteriorate. Tinted windows can block up to 99 percent of UVA and UVB rays, thus greatly slowing this process. This means the value of your house will stay higher, and you will have much longer before needing to replace household items – both of which translate to money in your pocket
How Does It Work?
Rays from the sun are divided into 3 components; visible light, infrared light and ultraviolet rays. When solar heat and radiation hit your windows, the tint or film will block the UV rays from coming through the glass. This minimises the levels of heat and light passing through the glass and into your home. Depending on the type and strength of the window tint you select the amount of heat and light entering your home will vary.
There are other, less obvious, ways that window tinting for your home or office in Brisbane can save you money. These are:
- Health benefits – exposure to stark sunlight can damage your eyes, and too much sunlight can lead to skin damage, sunburn, and even skin cancer. By reducing the health risks associated with too much solar radiation you may well save money on health conditions you don’t need to get treated – and avoiding sunburn is valuable in itself!
- Security – making it more difficult for potential burglars to see what kind of valuables you have inside your home, you tip their risk versus reward calculations in your favour. This may well end up saving you money in repairs, lost items, and of course, could prevent the emotional trauma of a robbery.
