Old man winter has finally given up his strangle hold on the weather. Spring is almost here and you know what that means: warm weather, warm weather, and even more warm weather. While you might be ready for the much needed change, there is no guarantee your home is ready.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy up to 43% of a home’s utility bill typically goes towards heating and cooling costs. If you aren’t careful, you could find yourself paying more on your monthly energy bills than you’d like, especially when summer rolls around.
During the summer months, the average American’s household air conditioning bill can run as high as $400 a month. Yikes!
Cut Cooling Costs and Improve Energy Efficiency
For many homeowners, improving energy efficiency means HVAC maintenance and repairs. Others will simply lessen the demand they put on their air conditioners. Reducing your thermostat settings by only a few degrees can cut energy costs by as much as 25%. However, saving money on your energy bill does not have to mean you sit in a sweltering hot home all summer long. All you have to do to increase comfort and lower your energy bills is invest in residential window tinting.
Window tinting helps dramatically reduce infrared transmission while increasing reflection, all while leaving the spectrum of visible light (The stuff that actually lights up a room) largely unaffected. In layman’s terms, window tinting blocks the heat, but not the light, which will help cut cooling costs without sacrificing ambiance.
Window tinting blocks as much as 99% of harmful UV rays from entering your home.
