Replacement Windows V. Window Film

When you know that your windows are inefficient, it can be difficult to decide if replacement windows are right for you, or if you should try another process available to you.  At Scottish Window Tinting, we have found that many homeowners can actually benefit more from energy savings by investing in window film instead of taking on a full window replacement project.

If your windows are not very old, but still lack solid insulation, window tinting can be the right choice for you.  In fact, when windows still have sturdy framing, window film can often be more effective at saving energy costs than replacement windows.

Choosing Window Film for Your Home

Window tinting is becoming more and more popular for homeowners all over Colorado because of the low investment cost and high energy savings.  This process can save you up to 60 percent in energy costs, and you’ll start to see the savings immediately.  At Scottish, we only use the highest quality window films that will actually create a bond to the glass in your windows, which prevents it from bubbling or peeling over time.

New technology in these products allow for even better savings by functioning year-round.  When you install window film on your home, you’ll be able to keep the heat out in the summer, and in during the winter months.  This means you’ll be able to afford to keep your home more comfortable to live in.

The average homeowner investing in window film will actually have it paid for by the energy savings it provides in as little as 2 to 5 years. In fact, the low initial investment is one of the biggest reasons that homeowners choose window film.  Replacement windows can cost up to ten times as much as the average window film investment, and so they take considerably longer to get any return on the investment.

At Scottish Window Tinting, we have found over the years that replacement windows are usually not necessary.  However, if your windows are out of date, or if the framing is not solid or damaged replacement may be in order.  If you need to replace the windows on your home, contact our sister company, Scottish Home Improvements.
