4 Main Factors to Consider in Your Home Window Tint Film

A home window tint film installation is available in several different shades and outward appearance, for instance, mirrored, metallic, reflective, or even flat. Choosing the right tinting shade for your window is not just about the amount of light you want to let in. At Smartfilm we also consider other technical aspects such as room temperature, glare, and privacy. Our professionals here have a good history of installing residential window films and have amassed a great wealth of knowledge.

Before you buy home window tint film, here are the following factors you need to consider:

  • Level of privacy
  • Amount of light to let in
  • Glare
  • Whether to increase or reduce the room temperature


If You’re Looking for Privacy

If you are looking to improve the privacy of your room, most people recommend opting for a lower tint percentage. This is because window films with a tint percentage of below 20% are usually darker and hence they let in very little light. If you have a home with large windows, you might want to have some level of privacy while also letting in plenty of light into the room. 

You might also want a high degree of privacy in some rooms such as bathrooms, office partitions, and entryways. Our textured tint film also prevents people from seeing through your windows in the night when you have your lights on.


If You Want Better Visibility

If you have a storefront business with a window display section, you want the people outside to view the displayed merchandise with ease. Clear security film is a great solution for such a business since this window film has a low exterior visible reflection and hence potential customers can view the products without worrying about the sun’s reflection. 

Most windows also have a high interior reflectivity at night which prevents you from seeing the outside. To solve this problem, we can install window tints that have a low interior visible reflection. The window film lets you enjoy the night view from your office. You can also see through your windows at home in the night without having to turn off the lights in the house.


If You Need to Reduce that Glare

If you operate computers on your business and have difficulty viewing the screen due to the glare from the windows, then our sun window films are perfect for you. These films reduce the glare caused by natural light while also allowing plenty of light to get through. It also doesn’t compromise your view of the exterior.

The residential window tinting films can also be used in houses where the glare from the window interferes with your TV viewing experience.


If You Want to Keep Heat In or Out

There are two scenarios when dealing with weather control. The first one is where you want to keep your room warm due to the cold weather outside. Our heat control window film helps to keep the room warm by redistributing the room temperature to reduce cold spots. It also blocks out the cold temperatures outside. 

The second scenario is where you want to reduce the room temperature. Some window films help you to solve this problem. If your home or business premises get too hot due to the sun’s heat from the windows, these window films are the best option for you since they reject almost 80% of the sun’s heat without compromising the lighting or visibility.


If You’d Like to Redirect Sunlight to Better Fill Your Space

On regular windows and glass surfaces, the sun’s uv rays are usually concentrated in a certain spot at various times throughout the day. This concentration creates hotspots at different times making some locations in your business or home uncomfortable. In a storefront restaurant, customers might shun certain seats during daytime due to the excess heat or glare from the windows. 

It is also common to see some sections having excess light while others appear dark. If you use artificial lighting to illuminate some parts of your business premises clearly, then you should choose our window films to reflect light upwards and inwards so that the room is lit evenly. This would definitely add more curb appeal to your office.
