What comes into your mind when you hear the term ‘window tinting’? You probably picture tinted car windows in your head, which is completely explicable because tinted windows have become a standard feature for cars.
Car window tinting dates back to the 60s and 70s, when the first protective films were created and used in manufacturing tempered automotive glass windows.
Nevertheless, due to its multiple benefits, window tinting has now entered the world of home improvement as well.
The main reason behind its fast popularity among homeowners is that it helps cut back expenses. If you’re wondering how, here it is.
According to a study published by the International Window Film Association (IWFA) in 2014, professionally installed window film is the most cost-effective answer to reducing high energy costs, toppling other energy efficient options such as upgrading insulation, air sealing, and installing new air conditioning.
Window tinting is proven to reduce solar heat gain, allowing in less than 25% of solar energy and can cut cooling costs up to 30%. Throughout a year, window tints can help you save from 5 to 10% off your total electric bill. Take note, that’s just one benefit. Wait until you know more.
