It has been known that the energy price has been continuously increasing as time goes by, which leads people to look for alternative ways to save their utility bills. While many opt to add insulation to their homes, replace old appliances with new eco-friendly appliances, and even switch to energy saving light bulbs, one area that most don’t always consider is the amount of energy that is lost through the windows in their homes. As much as 30% of the typical home’s heating and cooling are lost through ineffective window treatments or the windows themselves. There are certainly a lot of reasons why energy lose inside the house, one of which is through the leakages that pass through the window and the other is because of the heat flow that is cause by the window’s frame and glass. While others who can afford the new energy efficient type windows in order to solve their problem against energy loss, not everyone can afford to buy these new windows since they are way more expensive compared to the normal windows that a lot of homeowners usually use. One alternative that is gaining popularity is residential window tinting.
In colder months, tinting can help prevent heat from escaping through your windows. Window tint acts as an additional layer of insulation preventing heat loss through the glass pane while still allowing enough visible light in from outside to keep the inside of your home bright. It has also been known that air conditioner units are working extra powerful most especially during summer season because the heat that enters the house is unbearable. Using window tints during summer season is also a good thing since it helps block as much as 99% of the harmful ultraviolet rays from entering your home which makes the heat bearable. Window tints are really beneficial since it helps block the unwanted heat from outside into entering the home and at the same time, it helps the cool air from staying inside the house. Due to tint’s insulation properties, it helps to equalize the temperature in your home, resulting in your heating and cooling systems not having to work as hard to maintain your preferred temperature. This not only reduces your energy costs, it also helps to make your home more comfortable by eliminating large temperature fluctuations.
