Why Residents Of Austin Should Tint Their Windows
Austin is probably the coolest city in Texas. Things like SWSX and Austin City Limits are a few of the cultural events that put Austin on the map. The hip vibes of the city in combination with the near perfect weather here, make Austin a destination city for those in search of a laid back and picturesque life. However, even in a city with fairly temperate weather, the intense sun can be an issue. Anyone who has spent time in Texas can attest to the issues the sweltering sunlight creates for residents. At times it creates a blinding glare, increases load on your HVAC systems and as a cancer-causing element, it can even be harmful to your health.

Window Tinting Myths Vs. Facts
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.
