There are so many benefits to tinting your windows – even if you have standard double glazing or tinted glass, you can still benefit from these fantastic extra features that a window film can bring to your home.
Reduce fading of soft furnishings
You’ve invested in a beautiful dark lounge suite and vibrant, colourful drapes in your north-facing living room, and to your dismay they quickly start to fade in colour in the harsh New Zealand sun. Carpets, curtains, blinds and upholstery are all susceptible to UV light, and it’s not just the colour – as the chemical bonds of the threads break down, fabric can become brittle and prone to breakage.
To prevent the early breakdown of your soft furnishings, Bay Window Tinting films will drastically reduce the fading process, with technology that can block 99% of harmful UV rays and reducing the ‘burning’ effect of the sun, while still allowing warmth to enter.
Reduce sunlight glare
If you find yourself squinting out of your windows into the glare of the summer or the bright, white low lying winter sun, you have a problem with sunlight glare. It gets hard to focus on a TV or computer screen with glare and reflections everywhere, and it makes your home seem darker than it really is.
You don’t need to block out the sun altogether – with a wide range of solar films, Bay Window Tinting can enhance your view while retaining natural light inside.
Heat transfer reduction
Glass is a poor insulator, and a lot of your home’s heat escapes through your windows. In summer, the hot sun beams in, and keeping your curtains shut all day is hardly a practical option.
Bay Window Tinting offers EnerLogic films that will control and reduce heat transferred through your windows, resulting in a home that is warmer in winter and cooler in summer. EnerLogic provides thermal performance up to that of double glazing, but a significantly lower cost. Imagine the savings on your power bill when you don’t need to use so much electricity on heating and cooling your home!
Toughen up your glass
Windows can be the weakest point in the exterior of your home, where extreme weather, break-ins or just your run-of-the-mill stray ball can cause a major disruption. Many older homes don’t have safety glass, meaning that they shatter on impact.
Reduce your risk of injury and increase your home security – a window film increases the strength of your existing glass to resist impact and hold shattered glass together, protecting your loved ones.
