You come home from a long day at work and just want to lay down the bed and relax. There’s a new show on Netflix that you’d like to catch up on, especially since you’ve been working throughout the week without a break!

You open the curtains to let some natural light in because the bright, bold lights hurt your eyes. But then you remember you can’t. Right across the street, there’s a pesky neighbor that likes to sneak glances!

Doesn’t that sound irritating? You just want some peace and quiet without the worry of someone looking into your home.

So, what’s the solution? Do you leave your curtains alone and never open your windows again? It’s your house and you deserve some privacy!

This is where tinted windows save the day. Not only are they an excellent solution to your privacy concerns, they also come equipped with numerous benefits, some of which are:

Reduced Energy Costs

One of the best reasons to install tinted windows in your home is because they help reduce energy costs.

You no longer have to worry about drawing up the curtains and compromising your privacy. Tinted windows ensure that you get sufficient natural light without anyone being able to see inside your home. You have a majestic view from the inside but nobody will be able to see you from inside.

With more natural light you won’t need to use the lights inside your home as often. This will lead to a reduction in energy consumption and lower utility costs!

 Glare Reduction  

One perk of tinted windows is that during the summers you don’t need to worry about that irritating glare from the sun!

You know when you lay down to relax and the sun just smiles at you? Well, you no longer have to deal with the glare and the heat anymore.

You can go on with your daily activities like reading and using your smartphone whilst lying down.

Protection from the Sun

The glare isn’t the only thing tinted windows protect you from. If you sit near the window for a long period of time, you risk getting sun burnt!

Furthermore, UV radiation is one of the leading causes of skin cancer, according to the Canadian Cancer Society.

 One of the reasons you should get a tinted window is because it reduces exposure to the sun’s UV rays by 99 percent.

Increased Privacy

So, this one’s obvious. Who doesn’t want peace and quiet? This is especially true when you don’t want people to know you’re home (and you desperately need some “you” time!)

Tinted windows allow you to have the privacy you need at the comfort of your home. In addition, it also helps deter crime because it confuses the burglar and slows them down!

According to statistics, 62 percent of burglars are armed.  Furthermore, reports also show that residential break-ins happen every 90 seconds in Canada. Most of these are through breaking windows.

With tinted windows, it’s easier to confuse the thief because they won’t know which way to go!

Easy Maintenance

One of the best things about tinted windows is that they are water-resistant and scratch-proof. So if you have pets at home, you don’t need to worry about scratches. You also don’t need to worry about harsh weather conditions carving holes into the frames and letting moisture seep in!

These are just a few benefits of installing tinted windows for your home.
