4 Myths About Window Film That Affect Denver Buyers

Why Window Film Is Important For Your Denver Home

Denver, Colorado sits at the perfect altitude of 5,280 feet beneath the gorgeous Colorado sky. This high altitude seat, the great plains to our east and the Rocky Mountains to our west, make for some unique weather, which is probably why the city has a universal attraction to a diverse group of new inhabitants–outdoor enthusiasts and professionals alike. The weather here could be characterized as mild with spurts of seasonality. We get some but not much snow, hail, rain, but plenty of sun. In fact, it is said that Denver has 300 days of sunshine a year. Anyone who has lived here, even a short bit, knows this is probably true. Having so much sunshine is great for outdoor activities and mood, however, one of the most, if not the most common weather complaint we hear is the incredible intensity of the sun. As window tint installers, we at Denver Window Film, we hear about problems such as–the almost unbearable morning and evening glares on patios, high cooling bills, and home belongings faded/ruined by the sun–all of which can be fixed with window tinting. We also hear a lot of myths about window tinting that we felt were important to address.

Window Tinting Myths Vs. Fact

Myth: Window tinting will make it dark inside your home or business.
Fact: Window tinting does not stop the sun from penetrating into your home or business. In fact, many window films actually work by redirecting sunlight deeper into your home or business, making it brighter and more comfortable even in areas not directly in front of windows.
Myth: Plants can’t grow in buildings with tinted windows.
Fact: Window tinting blocks harmful UV rays from coming through your home’s windows and UV rays are not what feed plants. Therefore, window tinting does not hinder plant growth and in some ways may help it.
Myth: Window tinting is very expensive.
Fact: The cost of window tinting is much lower than replacing windows and with the money you save on heating and cooling bills, they pay for themselves in as little as 2-4 years.
Myth: Window tinting will take a really long time to install.
Fact: Window tinting on a residential home usually takes no longer than one day. Larger buildings take longer but only a fraction of the time of complete window replacement.
