Why install ceramic window tint?
Ceramic window tinting is one of the top technologies on the market today. By choosing it, you’re choosing real protection from sun damage for your family. Even if your house stands in direct sunlight, with your windows tinted with ceramic coating it will remain cool and comfortable. Your interior won’t fade and the sun glare and heat won’t interfere with your daily life — you can watch TV in the daytime and let your kids play in the living room at the peak of sunny hours. What is more important than the health of you and your loved ones?
9 main benefits of ceramic tint
- Protection from UV and UVB rays up to 99% (no disturbing sun inside your house)
- Reduction of infrared light up to 80% (therefore, much less heat)
- Heat resistance up to 59% (keeps your house really cool)
- Significant reduction of sun glare inside your house (ceramic tint is non-reflective and makes it easy to work on the computer, watch TV, and play games during the day)
- Protection of the interior from fading (furniture, wallpaper, wood)
- Reduction of energy bills (use less air-conditioning)
- Scratch resistant (durable and adds a layer of protection to your windows)
- No interference with Wi-Fi, radio reception, or electronic signals (no more dropped calls, like with metallic tint)
- Ultimately helps prevent aging and skin cancer (almost zero UV rays get inside of your house).
How does ceramic window tint work?
Nano ceramic particles that cover the surface of the film act like an invisible shield that blocks infrared heat and UV rays. As opposed to a metallic or dyed window tint, this film is completely transparent. It doesn’t interfere with the visual transmittance of natural light so will not make the interior darker and also doesn’t interfere with electronic signals.
By decreasing your inside exposure to heat, glare, and UV light, ceramic tint offers the ultimate protection and reduces your risk of skin cancer.
What will increase the benefits of ceramic window tinting?
As perfect as ceramic window films sound, they will not always be the ultimate solution for heat and UV rejection. To get the best results, you must have a well-insulated house. The more modern it is — the better. Gaps in the walls, old materials, thin walls, old tinted roofs — all of these and many other factors could stand in the way of the ceramic window tint’s performance. If the walls and the roof of your house get overheated during the day, none of the films will help.
Sound like your case? Consider taking these 6 steps which will help increase the heat resistance of your house:
- Insulate the roof (there is a technology called the “Cool roof”, check it out)
- Insulate the walls of your house
- Install water sprayers on the perimeter of the roof
- Design the proper shading around your house
- Check if your air conditioning is working properly
- Install extra fans to cool the rooms down.
Best brands of ceramic window tint
There are many brands that use nano-ceramic technology but we know that we can only trust a few of them. Window tinting, as simple as it sounds, is a super delicate job and concerns the protection of our clients’ wellbeing. Incorrectly chosen and installed window film can be dangerous: simply making the space visually darker won’t block UV rays and radiation as needed and can literally become a risk factor for your health.
Throughout our 12 years of experience the Tinting Chicago team has tested dozens of window tints, and today we have chosen to work with only 3 brands — Suntek, 3M, and SOLYX. Suntek and SOLYX are in the mid-price range and 3M is the most expensive and technologically advanced on the market.
Ceramic window tints produced by these 3 brands offer exceptional heat rejection, UV protection, infrared rays blockage, superior durability, and scratch resistance. By installing it you will get a much cooler house, no irritating glare, and maintain perfect visibility of your windows, and long-lasting furnishings.
