Why Window Film?
Ordinary window glass is inadequate to satisfy all our demands for high standards of performance in safety and security, privacy, comfort and visual appearance. Winter heat loss through glass is an expensive waste of energy, just as summer solar heat and glare through glass cause irritation and inefficiency and also increased air conditioning costs. Sunshine through ordinary glass causes UV fading of color pigments in everything from shop displays and furniture to works of art. Windows allow unwanted intrusion of privacy, whether by prying eyes or criminals, and glass is often the weak point attacked by vandals or burglars, or just damaged by storms. Window tinting is a primary solution to the above.
What Causes UV Fading?
Exposure to direct sunlight can cause many colored or painted materials to fade. Damage due to fading is caused by UV light, visible light, heat (including infrared light), artificial lighting indoors, humidity and poor dye anchorage. The first three cause about 90% of general fading. UV, visible light and heat all pass through ordinary glass and can cause expensive damage to goods and furnishings in offices, retail shops and museums. LLumar films are specially designed to help protect displayed objects in museums, shop windows and similar environments. They filter out at least 99% of the harmful UV, reject infrared heat, reduce visible light transmission and still leave a pleasantly lit environment. Window tinting will help.
I have a 3,900 square foot home in a very hot desert type of environment. I keep a constant temperature of 73 degrees. Before the window tinting the air conditioner compressor seemed like it was constantly cycling and my electric bill was $450 per month. After the glass tinting, the electric bill was immediately cut in half. With the money I save each month, the window tinting will have paid for itself within 1 year! Now that's a great investment!
