What Is Home Window Tinting?

Home Window Tinting Perth is the most cost-effective building insulation office window tinting perth available and is responsible for the prevention of heat and glare from entering into a building, even with blinds and curtains drawn, the U.V. rays still pass through the glass and fade home furniture and heat up the inside of a home.

Window Size and orientation of the windows will largely determine the energy efficiency of a building, for many building owners and
managers, window tinting is the first action taken towards achieving an environmentally sustainable building. In Summer 87% of Solar heat can be gained through glass windows and in Winter 49% of heat can be lost through the same glass windows.

The Benefits of Home Window Tinting

  • The effectiveness of Home Window Tinting is that it can block up to 99% of harmful U.V.A. and U.V.B. rays, which helps to prevent damage from Skin Cancer and will drastically reduce fading of carpets and furniture and warping of home equipment and desks from high amounts of heat.

  • The other benefits are that Window Tinting can be “retrofitted” to existing glass windows so there is no need to endure the cost of replacing glass windows before installation of Window Tinting, and in some tricky situations we have a highly specialized film that is designed to be installed to the outside of the glass if access is not available on the inside.

  • Window Tinting will reduce the amount of energy required to cool a home building by stopping the heat at its source (the glass windows) therefore reducing the temperature immediately around the perimeter of a building and allowing air-conditioning systems to be used sparingly or placed on a higher temperature than was possible previously and thus allowing saving in energy consumption, up to 30% by lowering cooling and heating costs.

  • With the need to conserve energy also comes the need to reduce most companies carbon footprint and the need to conform to stricter environmental standards for energy efficiency. At the same time the cost of energy continues to rise which affects a companies bottom line, this is where window tinting comes into its own with proven heat rejection properties, window tinting will help your business consume less energy by keeping interior temperatures more controllable and stable, which will lower the need for air-conditioning in some circumstances.

  • Window Tinting also has the added bonus of reducing peaks in airconditioning usage during a hot afternoon and this will allow your cooling system to operate more efficiently and inexpensively.

  • As an added bonus, Window Tinting also reduces Glare, especially if the sun reflects off the surface of parked cars or other building facades, thus reducing productivity in your workforce due to excessive eye strain and the reduced ability to see computer screens, also Window Tinting will provide day time privacy which is beneficial if your windows are at ground level looking on to a footpath or car park or another building.

1. Glare Control Window Film

Know when you try to watch TV but the sun’s glare makes it impossible to see your screen?

This is one of the most practical types of tint as it means you can enjoy your electronic devices while letting the sun get in. An AR (anti-reflective) coating on eyeglasses has the same technology as it diffuses the light when it passes through the glass.

2. Decorative Film

This type of film is made from dyes and is the most inexpensive type of tinting for homes. It gets the color by melting and stretching the window tint.

As they’re the thinnest type of window tint, they don’t block out UV rays or increase window strength, but they do give you added privacy. For example, decorative film is a great solution if your bathroom doesn’t have frosted windows.

The decorative film from Star Tint comes in an array of patterns, designs, and colors which is great if you want to incorporate new design elements into your home.

But don’t over-do it. Decorative film can be tasteful if you’re adding a bold color or stripes to a window, but do it sparingly otherwise you’ll turn your home into an eye-sore!

3. Security Film

If you want to prevent storm damage and deter intruders, install security film as it’s the thickest.

Security film is often clear and doesn’t absorb or reflect much heat. Your window may shatter during a storm but security film reduces the damage to a large crack so your window can hold out longer.

It also means it’ll be harder for intruders to see inside your home which is important if you have large windows or have many valuables in your home.

Many factors affect the pricing of Home Window Tinting in Perth, the main factor to start with is sizing.

Not a lot of people realise but when we come to measure your windows in your home, we measure the height and width and then calculate which roll this size of window will come from in order to reduce wastage, there are four main sixes of window tinting – 920 mm 1220 mm 1520 mm and 1820 mm

Because the good quality film comes from America we are fluent in feet and inches as well as metric millimetres and metres.

To calculate an average window size you times the height of the glass only (not the frame ) by the width of the glass and then calculate this by the square meter rate for the specific type of tinting you are installing.

E.G. – 1520 x 1050 = 1.59 square metres x average tinting price of $85 a square metre = $135.15 plus 10 % G.S.T. = 148.66

Please note that this is for a standard window size using an average window tinting type and should not be used to calculate all of your windows because this may vary.

Finally, the different types of Window Tinting, Security Film and Safety film etc. will affect the per square metre price of your final quote, I hope you find the above explanation useful.
