How does residential Window Tinting affect my energy bill?

As any homeowner knows, windows are one of the most important features in a house.  In addition to brightening a home and allowing fresh air to enter, windows provide a view of the outside world.   However, what many homeowners don’t think about is how windows can
cause excessive energy waste and bills.  This is where window tinting comes in!

What is Window Tinting?
Simply put, a window tint is a thin, clear and near-invisible plastic film installed on the inside of your home’s windows.  By reducing the heat, glare and UV rays generated by the sun, window tint helps to lowers your energy costs.  Installed properly, window tinting provides many financial benefits including:

  • Summer savings.  Window tinting reduces the levels of heat and light passing through the glass and into your home.  By blocking out the UV rays during the hot summer months, window tint reduces solar heat gain, which in turn will reduce the amount of time your air conditioner has to run, resulting in lower AC bills and less wear and tear on your HVAC unit.
  • Winter savings.  It’s estimated that window tinting can block as much as 80% of the sun’s heat.  During winter, the same window film will retain interior heat, resulting in lower heating costs. 
  • Affordable installation.  Window tinting provides an affordable alternative to window replacement.  Instead of spending thousands of dollars to replace deteriorating and damaged windows, you can have quick and professional installation of window tinting at a fraction of the cost!
  • A high ROI.  With energy-efficient window films installed on your home’s windows, you can expect to see a payoff from your reduced energy bills in just two to five years.  It truly offers a remarkable return on your investment!

Along with the substantial financial benefits of window tinting, it also reduces interior glare, provides privacy while retaining your view outside, and prevents interior damage and fading to furnishings, carpet, rugs and upholstery by blocking out the harsh UV rays.  In addition, it enhances safety and security by holding the glass pieces in place if your window shatters due to an accident or weather.
