How Residential Window Tinting Affects an Energy Bill

American Solar Tinting Residential Window Tinting

Residential window tinting can lower your energy bills year-round while adding value to your home.

Residential window tinting is more beneficial than many homeowners may realize. In general, Windows are some of a home’s most essential features. They bring in natural light, ensure a home is safe and secure from intruders and inclement weather, and affect energy bills. How does residential window tinting affect energy bills, you might ask? We’re here to answer that question. 

Residential Window Tinting Defined

First, we should define residential window tinting because people often think of cars when it comes to window tints. A window tint is a thin, transparent, and virtually invisible plastic film installed inside your home’s windows. A proper installation has several financial benefits. 

Save During the Summer

Residential 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 summer, window tint minimizes solar heat gain, reducing the amount of time your AC or central air has to run. As a result, you can look forward to less expensive AC bills and stress on your HVAC unit. 

Save During the Winter

Residential window tints can block about 80% of the sun’s heat. During the winter, this window film will retain heat, thus resulting in lower heating costs. 

Add Value to Your Home

Window tints aid in a more energy-efficient home while reducing heating and cooling costs. However, they also have a high return on investment (ROI). Give it two to five years, and you can expect a payoff from your reduced energy bills. Also, any homeowner who plans to put their home on the market can use energy-efficient windows as a selling point. Any home with the right upgrades is marketable. Potential buyers will love to see that they can save money on heating and cooling costs

Other Benefits 

Residential window tinting has more than financial benefits. Other advantages include: 

  • Reduction of interior glare
  • Privacy without the obstruction of outside views
  • It prevents interior furnishes from fading 
  • Holds glass pieces in place to prevent the glass from shattering during an accident or inclement weather
