Tinted Minnesota Windows Let You Have Your View AND Your Comfort In All Seasons

You love those south-facing windows because of the beautiful view and all the light they let in.  But when you let the light in, often you let in the heat as well.  And so to stay comfortable, you close the blinds or draw the drapes.  And you love sitting in your family room in the afternoon looking out over your  back yard gardens.   But the afternoon sun makes the room unbearable, so you find another spot to sit.  So much for the great view and the sunlight.  

Is it possible to bring in the sunshine and not be sweltering?  Yes.  With today’s modern window technologies, there are many options for coatings to allow you to have those windows uncovered and stay cool inside.  Window tinting can be a great solution.  If you’re thinking about the tacky films of the 70’s, think again.  Tints applied as a part of the manufacturing process by top-quality window manufacturers can help you cut your cooling bills while maintaining the beauty of your windows.  And window tints can also help reduce the amount of heat escaping from your home in the winter. 

In addition to making your sunny rooms more comfortable, some of the other benefits of having window tints are:

  • Glare reduction
  • Reduced energy bills
  • Reduced fading of carpeting, window treatments, and furniture
  • Lower amount of UV rays coming indoors (yes, you can get sunburned inside if you sit close to an untinted window)

Depending on the degree of the tint coating, tinted windows can also add an element of privacy, making the interior of your home less visible from the outside.
