Rising energy costs are becoming a concern for many, therefore making your home more energy efficient can provide an excellent return on investment. One way to make your home more energy efficient is by adding home window tinting. Window tinting provides a layer of insulation on your home windows. During the summer months it will reduce the amount of heat that comes into your home, and during the winter months it will help maintain the temperature inside your home by reducing the amount of heat escaping your home through your windows.
Darrel Smith with the nonprofit International Window Film Association explained, “Window films professionally installed on structurally sound single or double pane windows may reduce energy consumption by as much as 30 percent, while the installation cost may be 91.5 percent less than putting in new windows,”
Residential window film blocks harmful UV rays and decreases the glare and heat entering your home. Here is 4 benefits of adding window film to your home:
Keep Heat Out In Summer
When you add window tinting to your home, you will give your A/C unit a break and will decrease the need to run it as much. This will help decrease energy cost, as well as improve the lifespan and need for costly repair on your unit.
Keep Heat Inside In Winter
Window tinting helps prevent heat loss through your home's windows. Between 25-30% of your residential energy usage in the winter is lost via your windows. Therefore window tinting can save you a great amount of money even during the winter months.
Protect Your Furniture and Carpet
Not only is the summer glare and heat costly with energy cost, but also with repairs of wood floors, carpets, and furniture. Window film will block 99% of these harmful UV rays that cause damage and fading to occur.
Pays For Itself
Window tinting is a great option for those looking to make their home more energy-efficient. In most situations, window film will pay for the cost within 3 years compared to a lengthy 10 years when replacing the windows all together.
