One way to conserve energy in your home is by having window film installed which has the added benefit of saving you money all year round.

Why Energy Conservation Through Window Film Really Matters

Why Energy Conservation Through Window Film Really Matters

Energy is on everyone’s mind these days. Traditional ways of making and storing energy are changing rapidly. This gives us hope for a renewable energy future but doesn’t change the fact that the US is heavily reliant on fossil fuels. While there is nothing inherently wrong with these energy sources–they are expensive, limited, and take a toll on the environment. So a good idea while the search and refinement of sustainable energy sources continue–is to energy conservative.

How Window Film Conserves Energy

The EPA has clearly stated that lowering bills related to heating and cooling one’s home is a great way to conserve energy. This may seem like a small thing but, across millions of American homes and businesses it adds up big time!  

There are plenty of ways to approach energy savings via altering your solar and climate control methods. One of them is window film and tinting. When you have this amazing technology applied to your home’s windows it functions on several levels to help you conserve energy.

Window Film Traps in Heated and Cooled Air

Window film technology is pretty cool in that it acts as an insulator on glass. That’s right–this little piece of thin plastic is a big-time energy conservation method. It makes single-paned glass the same as double and double the same as triple. This is not only good for the environment but your bottom line!

Window Tinting Reflects Heat Away From Interiors

Windows can account for as much as 40% of the incoming heat into your home in summer. By adding window tinting, you can redirect as much as 80% of that heat back outside. This keeps your home more cool and comfortable and lowers your bills at the same time!

Window Film Reduces HVAC Load

When your HVAC systems need to work hard to keep the interiors of your home or business at the right temperature due to treated air leeching outside or untreated air seeping in–they run inefficiently using more power to do the same job. This increases energy uses and, as you probably know, your energy bill. Plus this may require replacement more frequently incurring costs to your wallet and the environment in the form of more trash and junk from old systems.

As you can see window films and tints are more than just good for going green but also for conserving your cash! Contact us today at Scottish Window Tinting to learn more about the power of energy-efficient window film.
