The Benefits of Residential Window Tinting
- Control Heat and Glare
Windows are an important part of any home, from the light they let in to views they reveal. However, they can also create a host of problems ranging from excessive glare, heat build-up and high energy costs as you’re forced to run the air conditioner more often to stay comfortable. Residential window tinting with LLumar window films can help you control these problems while providing increased comfort and lower overall energy costs.
Windows play a significant role in regulating heat and energy in your home. According to the EPA Energy Star Buildings Manual in the United States, approximately one-third of an average home’s utility bills are wasted by heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer through untreated windows. Residential window tinting with LLumar window films can lower heating and cooling expenses by reducing solar heat from the outside, reducing hot and cold spots inside, and helping to prohibit heat from escaping.
Open your blinds, shades, or drapes and let the sunlight in! LLumar window film reduces glare by up to 87%, making it easier for you to watch television or work on a computer. And because LLumar residential window tinting is available in a variety of clear, light and subtle shades, you’ll be able to enjoy your view.
- Ultraviolet (UV) Protection for your Home and Family
If you’ve recently furnished or redecorated your home, good for you. There’s nothing better than a fresh new look. But harmful ultraviolet rays can make things look old fast. Most fabrics, furnishings and artwork can be damaged and fade when sunlight passes through untreated windows. By blocking more than 99% of all UV rays, LLumar UV window film offers protection for the things you love and have special meaning to you. It will help preserve the color of fabrics, carpets and hardwood floors and help protect fine antiques, woods and works of art from discoloration and fading.
UVA rays streaming through your home windows not only adversely affect your furnishings, but are damaging to your eyes and skin and may contribute to premature aging, and lead to skin cancer. With one out of five Americans developing skin cancer these days, why live with this risk? LLumar UV window film is designed to protect against harmful ultraviolet rays. It is a micro thin film that is transparent so you can enjoy the view without the UV. LLumar UV window film has been recommended by dermatologists as another skin safe preventative measure for patients with solar sensitivity, skin related diseases and cancers of the skin. LLumar UV window film carries The Skin Cancer Seal of Recommendation. The seal is awarded to products that protect against skin cancer, like sunscreens. Help change the odds for your family. Make LLumar UV window film part of your sun safety program. You can never be too safe.
