Benefits of tinting your home:

Lower Energy Bills

More and more, homeowners are interested in helping our environment and preserving precious resources. You can make a difference everyday simply by reducing your air conditioning usage. Solar Gard films help you do that by rejecting heat and keeping interior temperatures more controllable and stable. By running your air conditioning less, you consume less energy, reduce your carbon footprint and save money on utilities.

Solar Protection

Nothing adds life to your home more than great natural light, but it’s also possible to have too much of a good thing. With natural sunlight comes unwanted heat and hotspots, which can really affect your overall comfort and make for a less inviting atmosphere. Solar Gard films reject up to 79% of solar energy – providing you greater temperature stability and comfort while reducing solar heat gain and bothersome glare. A trained installer will professionally fit window film to the inside of your existing windows. Many films are optically clear, meaning they’re virtually undetectable inside or out. Others offer a tint or reflectivity that increases your privacy and enhances the look of your home. Maintenance is worry- free. Simply clean windows as you normally would.

Fade Protection

Even inside the house, you and your valuables are more exposed to sun damage than you probably realize. Ultraviolet light and solar heat coming through any window can cause fading and irreparable damage to the things you value most. Everything from your expensive artwork and furnishings, to hardwood floors, carpets and custom draperies are at risk – and even more important, so is your skin. Solar Gard films help by filtering visible light, rejecting solar heat and blocking over 99% of harmful UV light – significantly reducing your potential for damage and protecting what you treasure most.

Skin Protection

Clear glass used for windows in your home, office or automobile offers protection only from UVB rays, those that cause sunburn. Unless specially coated, glass offers no protection for UVA rays, which cause both aging and skin cancer. In addition, UVA rays penetrate glass year round no matter what the season leaving you exposed, even in the winter when you are less likely to wear sun screen. To protect yourself, your children and even your pets, you need protection from UVA and UVB rays. Solar Gard window film offers a one-time application that that offers affordable and safe protection. In addition, window film blocks 99% of both UVA and UVB year round. Window film converts glass from providing UVB protection to providing complete protection for both UVA (A for aging) and UVB (B for sunburn) rays. Solar Gard window films provide a wide range of benefits in one simple solution: • Protection from harmful UV rays • Up to 30% energy savings • Protection from flying glass in the event of breakage • Deterrent against break-ins • Enhanced look and privacy • Increased interior comfort • Solar Gard films is recommended by the Skin Cancer Foundation

Window tinting for a home in Las Vegas and Henderson NVHow Window Tinting Saves Energy

Window film works to diminish the sun’s UV rays and increase fade reduction while absorbing other areas of energy, which works to significantly reduce solar radiation that permeates throughout the space. Keep in mind these results may vary based on the kind of window film that’s actually installed.

Just a few small degrees in temperature fluctuation can generate as much 25 percent in savings from reducing the warmth and light of the sun by using eco-friendly Henderson and Las Vegas residential window tinting. Overall, it takes a great deal of energy to adequately eliminate the excessive warmth out of a room through an air conditioning system. Tinted windows can help ease the load of air conditioning units during the peak times of summer enough to actually allow the user to turn the entire unit off or to even install a less expensive system altogether. Window film will reduce the uncomfortable heat and glare while increasing your energy savings and adding to your overall comfort level by incorporating energy efficient commercial and residential window tinting in Las Vegas, Nevada.

The Science Behind Efficient Window Film

The transfer or movement of warmth from one area of high temperature to another cooler area is what’s known as ‘heat transfer’. Heat transfer constantly flows from warm air to cold air. If there’s not a tangible difference in temperature, warmth will not transfer, or move.

Basically, there are three different kinds of warmth, or temperature transfer: Convection, Conduction, and Radiation. With regards to window film, radiation is the most significant way to transfer warmth due to how it transmits infrared waves, which is exactly why people call ‘solar energy’, ‘solar radiation’.

The solar energy that penetrates a window is transmitted or transferred through infrared waves. Radiant energy is then converted into warmth once it comes in contact with objects or people. If the transfer of energy is blocked, you can effectively stop it from developing into heat since it never gets the chance to come in contact with an object or person. Window film works to successfully disrupt this energy transfer by reflecting it back out and away from the window and therefore keeps the contents of the interior cool and comfortable.

Other Benefits of Window Tinting Homes and Businesses

In addition to saving energy and making a positive impact on the overall environment, “green” window tinting can literally enhance the comfort level of the room by decreasing temperature, reducing bothersome glare, and also deflecting 99 percent of dangerous UV radiation; whereby it can greatly reduce the risk of causing skin cancer and other health conditions subsequently encouraged by solar radiation.

What is Solar Energy Transmission and Why Does it Matter?

Solar energy transmission is essentially the percentage breakdown of solar energy: UV + near infrared + visible light, which is what literally passes through a window pane. Absorption is how much solar energy is absorbed in relation to the total amount of solar energy, while reflection is the percentage of solar energy that’s reflected back outside to its source.

By installing window film on the interior of a window, those key proportions are dramatically changed by increasing absorption and reflecting energy. This process is directly related to how much solar warmth is reduced and thus transmitted in a room. The window film properties radically impact the manner in which absorption, reflection, and transmission takes place.

How Window Film Affects Your ROI

Recent studies have illustrated the number of times that window film and tinting have affected a homeowner’s or company’s ROI (return on investment), especially by tinting or installing window film on the South, West, and East facing windows. Considered one of the hottest climates found anywhere in the U.S., Las Vegas’s many commercial businesses and residential homes utilize the key benefits of solar window tinting and film to cost-effectively save energy by diminishing UV rays and heat glare while making the entire building substantially more energy efficient overall.

Energy efficient window film is offered in a variety of different types to suit every need. Some window films and tints are more reflective in general and work to block a considerable amount of glare while greatly reducing huge amounts of hot solar energy. Other kinds of window films save energy by blocking warmth in addition to maintaining a higher degree of visible light transmittance (VLT), which is somewhat less reflective on the exterior of a window glass pane. No matter which style you choose, there’s on
