Solar Tinting Saves Energy in Homes

Are you interested in saving both energy and money on your next electric bill? Try solar tinting! By solar tinting the windows in your home, your heating and cooling costs will not only dramatically decrease but the overall health of your family will be protected from the harmful ultraviolet (UV) rays given off by the sun. Solar tinting consists of a thin and nearly invisible film composite that is placed on your windows and acts as an insulated and protective barrier between outside weather conditions and the inside temperature of your home. solar-tinting-energy-savings

Saves HVAC Workload

Heating or cooling the rooms throughout your home is one heavy task. While we simply press the arrow on the thermostat up or down, your heating, ventilation and air condition system (HVAC) is doing all the heavy labor behind the scenes. By solar tinting your windows in your home you will reduce the amount of workload your HVAC distributes, help conserve energy usage and costs and protect the environment from harmful pollutants.

Conserves Energy and Reduces Glare

According to the EPA Energy Star Buildings Manual in the United States, approximately one-third of an average home’s utility bills are wasted by heat loss in winter and heat gain in summer through untreated windows. It is in our DNA to turn up the air conditioning or close the blinds when the sun glare is beaming through the windows. However, cranking the air conditioning dial and blocking out the unwanted glare with curtains and/or blinds actually increases energy and electricity costs. With solar tinting, an additional layer added to your window will save you costs in energy, protect your furniture, carpet and home décor and artwork from sun damage and drastically reduce the amount of glare in your home by at least 94%.

Improves Health and Property Value

Though solar tinting can help reduce energy costs, tinting the windows on your property can also benefit your family’s overall health and increase the value of your home on the real estate market. From a health standpoint, solar tinting can improve the condition of your skin, lowers chances for sinus infections and migraines, and serves as a preventive measure to skin cancer by reducing your exposure to dangerous UV rays. On the other hand, solar tinting windows are a nice addition to the curb appeal of your property and can further impact and increase the value of your property when it comes time to sell.
