Going Green with Residential Window Tinting
Climate change and dire predictions seem to be in the news more and more. Most agree that our planet is changing and in order to mitigate the dangerous consequences of climate change, we all have to do our part. This often means making our lives and possessions more sustainable. One way to make your home more sustainable is through residential window tinting.
Nearly 90 percent of homes use air conditioning today. With this knowledge, it is estimated that 25 to 30 percent of the energy used in American buildings and homes is wasted due to inefficient windows. Clearly there is an opportunity here to help people shrink their carbon footprint while increasing their energy savings.
This is done with residential window tinting. Window film allows natural light into the home while lowering the amount of heat and glare that enters the home!
Another benefit of window film is protection from costly hot spots. When solar energy does enters the home, without film on the windows, hot spots are created in the home, which increase the amount energy consumed due to cooling costs. By reducing the amount of heat entering the home, the consumption of energy is reduced.
