Westwood is one of the finest neighborhoods in LA and the area has lots of great things going for it; one of those things is hundreds of days of bright, warm sunshine each and every year. But while the sunny days are lovely, they can also be a serious drag on your energy bills. When you come in from the sunshine, you want your Westwood, CA home to be nice and cool, and that means closing the shades and running fans and air conditioning units nonstop during the warm months.
But there’s a better way to beat the sun’s heat than by shutting all your windows and cranking up the AC – you can stop the sun’s heat in its tracks when you have your Westwood home’s windows covered with window tint.
Tinting the windows of your Westwood home (or business) is the single best way to cut down on your costly energy bills. In a place like Los Angeles, window tinting can save you more money than you might believe at first – in fact, most window tinting jobs will have paid for themselves in only a few years. When you apply UV and infrared blocking window films to your property’s windows, you effectively block out much of the solar rays that usually penetrate untreated windows. But window films do not block out the pleasant natural light you love about your Westwood, CA property.
Top quality window films are engineered to block out only certain parts of the spectrum of sunlight. The window tinting process will cut out much of the sun’s warming rays, leaving your property cooler and therefore less expensive to keep comfortable using fans and air conditioners. Residential window tint also blocks UV rays which can fade flooring, furniture, and artwork. As yet another bonus window films also enhance the insulation of your property, thus keeping the place warmer in the cold months (cold of course being a relative most of the time in Southern California).
Window tint will also improve the privacy and security of your Westwood home, blocking the view into the property from the outside (without diminishing the clarity of the view out through the windows) and enhancing the tensile strength of the glass. With window film in place, your windows will be highly resistant to cracking and shattering, which protects the home from break-ins and during storms, natural disasters, or in the event of a nearby accident.
