Year round temperatures vary dramatically here in Salt Lake City. During the summer, high elevation leaves us exposed to intense sunlight and in the winter, the freezing wind comes blowing in from across the Great Salt Lake and the Wasatch Mountains. It seems like there’s no choice for homeowners but to turn on the heat or a/c and deal with the sky high energy bill that follows. But one study may have proven otherwise. Recent data shows that window tinting for your Salt Lake City home could improve your heating and cooling situation, cut down your energy usage, and protect your furnishing from UV damage.

Window Tinting Case Study: Mountain Home with Scenic Views

Take this three story home in Denver for an example. The home features beautiful cathedral style windows that offer a breathtaking panoramic view of the Rocky Mountains. But since so much of the exterior was made of glass, the home had very poor insulation. It would become extremely hot during the summer and almost impossible to keep warm during the winter. Not to mention, the homeowners were incredibly concerned about the effects of the sunlight on their fine furniture, artwork, and flooring since UV rays cause fading.

Window Film Reduces Glare and Blocks 99.9% of Harmful UV Rays

But blocking out the views wasn’t an option they wanted to resort to. One day, they got to discussing the topic with their neighbors, who recommended window film. So the homeowners called a local installer who came out to their home to give them a personal consultation. The installer recommended Vista Mirage V38 because of its solar heat and glare blocking benefits. The film was able to reduce glare by 58%, lower solar heat gain by 46%, and block out 99.9% of UV rays. And its virtually clear appearance allowed the homeowners to continue to enjoy the incredible view from their windows.
