Would you like to lower your energy bills, preserve your furniture and flooring, and enjoy greater comfort in your home? Then the solution is simple: residential window tint.

You might be surprised by just how much you stand to gain from tinting your home’s windows. Lets detail some of the rewards you can reap by welcoming Krayco Window Treatments to your home in the greater Sioux Falls, SD area!


Energy Savings

Modern solar film can deflect nearly 85% of the summer sun’s heat. That’s certain to increase your air conditioner’s efficiency, which translates to direct savings for you. And by making your air conditioner’s job easier, you’ll also appreciably extend the expensive appliance’s lifespan.

Window film will save you money throughout the winter as well. Low-e film reduces heat loss during winter by as much as 30%. According to a recent study by Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory, low-e film installation can pay for itself in as little as two years!


UV Protection

Ultraviolet (UV) light is a type of natural electromagnetic radiation. When the sun is at its zenith, approximately 3% of its light that reaches ground level is UV.

Although it is invisible, UV light has many harmful effects. It fades, darkens and damages wood. It is the largest contributing factor in the fading of fabrics. And given enough time, UV light will completely destroy any type of carpeting you could name.

All of those materials are replaceable. Your skin, however, is not, which is unfortunate because UV light is especially harmful toward it. It causes sunburn, premature signs of aging such as wrinkles, liver spots and actinic keratosis, and skin cancer. Worse yet, prolonged exposure to UV light is known to cause eye problems and weaken the immune system as well.

Here’s the good news: Most window films block up to 99% of UV light, regardless of their visible light transmission (VLT) ratings. If you want to preserve your home’s interior and protect your health at the same time, then residential window tint is the most effective way to go about it!


Increased Privacy

Good fences make good neighbors. It’s age-old advice, but it doesn’t strictly apply to barriers made of picket or vinyl. Even a window tint with a VLT as low as 15% can make it significantly more difficult for passersby to look through your windows. 

Window film doesn’t merely deter invasive glances. The right security window film can deter a home invader, as it makes the underlying glass significantly more difficult to break. Even if the invader is determined to enter your home, security window film can give you the precious time you need to alert the authorities (as well as take other, more immediate steps toward defending yourself).


Improved Aesthetics

You may discount all the other benefits of window tint and still embrace it for its aesthetic appeal. Tints are available in a wide range of patterns, colors and designs that can complement the appearance of any residential space. Furthermore, window tint’s ability to diffuse light can markedly improve the health and vibrancy of house plants – perfect if you like returning home to  deep greens and flowers.
