Information is out of date

Tinted Window Film and Low-E Glass
Household maintenance saving through energy-efficient windows. Low-E glass and tinted window glass are more or less identical when it comes to window features but with different benefits and perks

Reports from the U.S. Department of Energy reveal 25% to 35% of energy wasted in buildings is due to inefficient windows. While the California Energy Commission estimates nearly 40% of a typical building’s cooling costs are attributed to solar heat gain through windows.

Save on household expenses with electricity saving energy-efficient window solutions.


What Is Window Tinting?

Window tinting is the application of a thin layer of laminate film to windows in order to block out ultraviolet rays from the sun and to regulate the flow of heat.


Films vary from colored and shaded options to those with nearly invisible designs. Each offering heat reduction, sunlight protection, security, privacy, glare protection and several additional benefits.   



Home window tint installation is one of the most cost effective solutions with costs dependent on a few factors:

  • film type

  • total number of windows

  • wideness of the project

  • complexity of the windows

  • labor costs



There are several benefits to window tinting:

  • conservation of energy and control of temperatures

  • anti-glare and ultraviolet protection

  • increased security and aesthetic

  • low maintenance 

  • raised home value

  • additional privacy


The installation process is not entirely complicated, however, if your project involves numerous windows, hard to reach spaces or covers a large area, it is recommended to call the professionals.



Window tinting is budget-friendly, easy to install and provides various benefits to windows in good condition. However, older windows or windows that may need replacing are not great candidates for window tinting.


What Is Low-E Glass?

Low-E glass, also known as Low-energy glass, is a unique variety of glass with a microscopically thin and transparent coating. Low-E glass reflects heat and decreases the amount of infrared and ultraviolet light coming through the glass. The coating is designed to be thinner than a human hair and maintains the temperature in your home by trapping interior temperatures.



In direct comparison with tinting windows, low-E glass is more expensive because it is installed with brand new windows. 



Overall, low-E glasses provides the same benefits as window tinting in combination with more practical and long term advantages.

  • improved energy efficiency

  • less condensation and high insulating power

  • sunlight protection and reduced UV damage

  • increased security and noise-proofing

  • low maintenance and adds to home value

  • lessens sunlight glare 

  • easy to clean  

  • saves money on electricity bills

  • permanent solution



Low-energy glass window installation is the same as regular window installation. Calling professionals is advised to guarantee a proper and safe installation.



Low-energy glass requires a complete window replacement which can be expensive. 


Is Low-E Glass or Window Tinting Better for You?

Low-E glass and tinted glass provide countless benefits but which is best for you? Ask yourself:

  • What are my priorities for the installation?

  • How much am I interested in spending? 

  • Do I need to replace my windows?

  • Do I want to have a tint to my windows?

  • What kind of window installation am I looking for, simple or complicated?
