Before investing in solar film, homeowners typically have a series of questions that they want answered regarding the comfort, privacy and security of the film. Window tinting isn’t right for every circumstance, but it’s proving to be the most effective, reasonably priced and least invasive option for many. That’s because solar film has a simple installation process, a long lifespan and widespread benefits wrapped into one product.
Let’s take a look at some of the top FAQs that we hear from customers.
- What is window film?
Window film consists of extremely thin layers of metal that are enclosed between two pieces of polyester plastic. The films are applied to the inside of the windows to reject heat and block UV rays. Arizona Solar Control carries all types of window film, including those that are clear, colored or patterned.
- What are the benefits to installing it?
Solar film reduces heat gain, hotspots around windows and temperature imbalances. Since it keeps the home more comfortable, you get to save money on your utility bills. Window film blocks 99% of UV rays, protecting your skin health. It also reduces fading and glare and enhances privacy and security.
- Will solar film make my home dark?
With today’s modern films, you can make your home as light or dark as you want to. If you want a lot of light to shine through, you’ll need a spectrally selective film that lets in most of the sun’s visible sunlight but blocks UV light and heat.
- How durable are the films?
Past films got a bad reputation for peeling and bubbling. Any window film that is not professionally installed can have the same fate. At Arizona Solar Control, we only carry top-of-the-line films, and our installers have over 30 years of experience, to insure that you don’t have any of these issues.
- Is there a warranty that will come with the window tinting?
Film warranties cover basically anything that can happen to the product, including bubbling, peeling and crazing. They also cover glass breakage from heat cracks and seal failure.
