Maybe you saw an ad online, or perhaps one of your neighbors just had their home’s windows tinted. Now you’re curious to know, does window tinting work during the winter? You know all about the summer benefits – heat rejection, energy savings, UV protection, etc. But what happens when the cold weather hits?

Below, we’ve shared some of the benefits of installing window film for winter in Knoxville as well as our top recommendations.

What Are the Winter Benefits of Window Tinting?

This may come as a surprise, but window tinting isn’t just for summer. The benefits can be enjoyed year round. There are specialized films that work to control the temperature of your home and keep it consistent all throughout the year. That means rain or shine, sleet or snow, you’ll stay comfortable no matter what’s going on with the weather outside.

Some of the benefits of installing window film for winter in Knoxville include:

  • Spending up to 30% less on heating costs
  • Keeping your HVAC system in better shape by preventing overload
  • UV protection, which is still important during the winter!
  • Getting rid of that annoying glare on your TV
  • A warmer home and happy family
