So, is there a tint that blocks heat? The short answer is no. There are tint films that have properties that help to stop the transfer of heat through windows, but none are actually designed with long-term heat blocking in mind.
Why is this?
It’s because tinting windows does not create an airtight seal on its own. Due to gaps between two panes of glass or even spaces in the tint film itself, air can always find its way through the tint and windows. This means that if you wanted something to truly prevent heat from being transferred behind your windows, then you need to go beyond window tint into window replacement or covering them entirely.
Is there any clear window tint that blocks heat?
Imagine tinting your windows and having it be 100% effective against heat transfer. That would mean no more opening the window during hot months, or adding insulation to your house. Unfortunately, that’s just not how tint works.
If you wanted a tint that was effective against heat transfer, then you’d need one of two things: either an ungodly amount of tint film applied to every square inch of glass in your home (so much so that it becomes impossible to see out), or some sort of airtight seal around each pane of glass. We’ll let you decide which is better – we’ll go with option number one because we like tint display over no tint whenever possible!
We live Florida, USA and our rear tint on our car gets very hot. We were told tint would help with the heat, not make it worse! Please answer.
Our tint actually helps to reduce the amount of heat entering your home during the summer months. The tint film is not designed to block all of the sun’s rays 100% of the time – only when they hit the tint directly does this happen.
But why would tint not be designed to block out all sun? Well, tinting windows are always about balance between visibility and comfort for drivers or homeowners. If you wanted a tint that blocked 100% of sunlight, then it wouldn’t allow any light into your car on sunny days, leading to extreme glare issues which can be dangerous while driving.
Since there are times where tint heat box display just won’t work as a tint, it’s better to have tint that helps reduce the heat transfer through your windows rather than no tint.
