The Different Kinds of Window Tinting for Homes

There are several different types of window tinting available for the average home, these include:

Insulation tinting

This type of window film repels exterior heat during the summer and helps retain interior heat during the winter. By doing so insulating window films can produce significant savings on your monthly heating and air conditioning bills.

UV tinting

UV light is necessary for many types of life but it can spell disaster for home interiors. UV light streaming through windows can bleach carpets, drapery and upholstery and render whole rooms uninhabitable at different times of the day. UV tinting can eliminate this problem.

Anti-glare tinting

When sunlight streams through the windows unimpeded it can create so much glare in a room that it’s difficult to see the TV or computer screen and you find yourself being blinded by reflected light at every turn. Anti-glare tinting eliminates this problem.

Privacy tinting

We live in an age when privacy is an increasingly rare commodity. The last place you want to feel you are on display is in your home. Privacy window tinting can help ensure prying eyes, long-distance lenses and even cameras mounted on drones have no way to peer into your house.

Security tinting

Intruders often enter a home by smashing a window. Security tinting can help prevent this from happening to your house. When someone attempts to break a window that has security tinting on it the film holds the broken pieces of the window together preventing access.

    5 star review  PR Solar have just applied their specialist film to our whole conservatory roof and doors, due to having to work from home because of Covid-19 Makes an amazing difference to the heat temperature and glare reduction in the room. So pleased to have found Paul and have this installed before Summer really kicks in. Cannot recommend highly enough.

    5 star review  Friendly reliable staff, fitted the film with efficiency, professionalism, and quality is outstanding. You can really notice a difference to the heat in the conservatory. Whilst light still comes in, the heat has been reduced dramatically so no longer feels like a sauna. We are west open facing meaning sun moves around the side of the windows then above normally trapping so much heat. In 24hrs the difference is amazing! Thanks Paul!

    5 star review  Very professional, Paul explained fully about the products and price, absolutely perfect fit for my windows, I am very happy with the results. We are on street level so everyone can look in when they walk past, the net curtains hid the view and light and harboured dust, it has completely changed our living room and kitchen, to be able to look out and have the light in, from the outside it looks totally natural and people cannot see inside. Would highly recommend, clean fast, superb service.

  • 5 star review  Paul installed window film on our bi-fold doors in our garden room, and kitchen and lounge windows. Having had skin cancer recently, I was concerned about UV and wanted to continue to enjoy our garden room without having anxiety. Skin cancers are becoming increasingly common and PR Solar Window Film is the ideal solution. It also prevents our furnishings fading! I was impressed by the installation - efficient, professional and a fantastic result! Highly recommend this service to all and everyone.

    5 star review  Nice quality finish, from the outside it gives the windows a bit of shine but doesn't look over the top, it gives the appearance of looking at an empty dark room. From the inside - you can't see it! Quick service and no mess. Great, I would recommend PR Solar to anyone wanting privacy film, our new windows now look very stylish.
