Window Tinting for Home,Commercial

Your customers are looking for ways to cut their energy costs, especially as warmer weather sweeps in. When they ask you for solutions, consider suggesting they take a tip from the auto world and tint their home’s windows. Not only does residential window film increase curb appeal, it also saves energy, which puts more money in their pocket and less carbon into the environment.

Energy Savings and More

Window film is a micro-thin layer of polyester and metal that is applied to existing windows. It comes in a variety of thicknesses. While most solar films range from 1-2 mil, specialty films for security and surface protection may be up to 10 mil.

As a point of comparison, clear single-pane windows have very low solar reflection and absorption and reject about 19% of the sun’s heat. Tinted windows glass are better at solar rejection, but still only reject 35-45% of the sun’s heat. Energy-saving films, however, reduce heat load by up to 84%.

If customers are complaining about hot or cold spots, typically caused by imbalances between the sunny and shaded areas of the building, solar film can minimize the problem by equalizing the amount of light entering the home. In addition to reducing energy use, it also improves the home’s overall comfort level.

Many utility companies base their rate structure on the maximum peak load measurement. Solar film reduces that peak, thereby cutting the total electrical bill, sometimes by as much as 30 percent.
