The Future of Window Treatments: Why Electric Tint is Worth the Investment

The Evolution of Window Treatments

Window treatments have come a long way from just curtains and blinds. Electric tint is the pinnacle of this evolution, offering a modern and convenient way to control your windows’ transparency. With smart tint, you can adjust the opacity of your windows with just a touch of a button, giving you privacy and controlling heat and light levels in your space. It's a futuristic take on traditional window treatments that is gaining popularity for its functionality and style.

Understanding Electrochromic Tint Technology & How it Works

It's called PDLC - Polymer Dispersed Liquid Crystal. Liquid crystal is a dual phase of both forms; liquid and crystal. It does not conform to what our everyday experience tells us is real but it responds to electrical currents and light. Polymer is used to disperse liquid crystal onto a surface of conductive glass or window film. When connected to an electrical current the crystals line up, switching the film from opaque to clear.

Benefits of Electric Tint for Homes and Businesses

Electric tint offers several benefits for homes and businesses. Here's why investing in electric tint is worth it:

  • Energy Efficiency: Electric tint helps regulate the amount of sunlight entering a room, reducing the need for excessive air conditioning or heating.

  • Privacy and Security: You can control the level of tinting with just a switch, ensuring privacy and security for your space.

  • UV Protection: Electric tint blocks harmful UV rays, protecting your furniture and interiors from fading.

  • Convenience: Adjust the tint effortlessly with the push of a button, customizing your environment to suit your needs.

  • Modern Aesthetics: Electric tint gives a sleek and modern look to your windows, enhancing the overall appearance of your home or business.

  • Solid State: There's not much one can break.

Energy Efficiency and Cost Savings

Smart film can significantly improve energy efficiency in your home by reducing the amount of heat gain through windows. This means your cooling system won't have to work as hard, leading to potential cost savings on your energy bills.

Whether you prefer a subtle shift or solid shade, the customization options allow you to tailor the look of your windows to suit your style.

Installation Process of Electric Tint

Installing electric tint involves a straightforward process. Here is what you can expect:

  • The electric tint film is applied to the interior side of the window.

  • Wiring is set up for an electric current to pass through the film, activating the tinting.

  • The tint level can be adjusted using a remote control, wall switch, dimmer switch or a mobile app.

  • Professional installers ensure a precise and secure application of the film and sealant.
