Energy efficient window films have gained a lot of popularity in the last ten years. People are realizing that there are a lot of benefits to window tinting and that they no longer have to rely on curtains or blinds to control heat and glare.

Nevertheless, there are still a lot of misconceptions. One of these is that some people think that all window films are tinted. This is, in fact, false. Below, we’ve explored this topic better and discussed clear energy efficient window films in detail.

Not All Window Films Are Tinted

One of the reasons that people avoid window film is that don’t like the look of the tinted color. This is completely understandable. Many people want to enjoy the views from their windows as they are in full clarity. What many people don’t realize is that they can get clear energy efficient window film for their Dallas home or building that does not have any tinting at all.

Not all window films are tinted. Some are completely clear. Others have decorative designs or patterns. The truth is, there are literally thousands of different styles of window film. So no, your window film does not have to be tinted.

Clear Vs. Tinted Energy Efficient Window Film

Clear window films provide many of the same benefits as tinted window films. They control heat and glare and stop ultraviolet rays from fading your furniture.

However, depending on the materials used to make the film and its actual design, the results could vary. That’s why when you’re shopping at window film, it’s important to look at the specs and data sheets. These will tell you a lot about what kind of results you can expect and what the window film does best. If you have questions, make sure to ask your tinting technician.

Regardless if you opt for tinted or clear energy efficient window film for your Dallas building, you won’t have to worry about the film making your space dark inside. Most window films are designed to provide a high level of visible light transmission and do not reduce indoor brightness. The only exception to this is a blackout film, which of course, is designed to black out the room and block light completely. These are specialty films though and are uncommon. Your tinting technician will probably not even mention them unless you ask about them.
