5 Benefits of Home Window Tinting
Homeowners often choose blinds, curtains, shutters or other window coverings in an effort to reduce the heat penetration or glare in their homes, but there’s a more efficient way. Residential window tint is an energy-efficient option that comes with many benefits, including protection, safety and aesthetics, which can help you reduce your energy bills and keep your home more comfortable.
According to the EPA Energy Star Buildings Manual in the United States, approximately half of a home’s utility bills are wasted by loss of heat and heat gain through untreated windows. Home window tinting can significantly improve energy efficiency. With a thin, virtually invisible addition to your home’s existing windows, window films can help you save up to 50% on cooling costs.
Are you spending a fortune on air conditioning costs just to keep your home cool? According to the U.S. Department of Energy, up to 43% of a home utility bill goes to heating and cooling. As it was mentioned earlier, our tints help you save significantly on energy costs in your home. Installing window tint is also a more affordable alternative to replacing your windows. By allowing your home to be protected from the sun’s heat from our energy saving window films, the money you would spend to keep your home cool with air conditioning can be spent somewhere else. Ultimately, the savings that you will enjoy from our window tints will pay for themselves in your bills.
