Throwing Your Money Out the Window
An average home may lose 30% of its heat or air-conditioning energy through its windows. And many older homes have only single pane windows. Not only are they inefficient, but they also lack low-e, argon, and infrared blocking technologies unlike today’s more advanced window systems.
To totally replace your windows is not only a big job, but a costly one as well. For an average sized home of 2000 square feet with an average of 15 windows, you’re looking at a cost around $7500.
Cost Effective Solution
Window tints with infrared blocking qualities prevent heat and ultra-violet (UV) rays from passing through glass. The result? A window with UV film does a better job keeping heat in during the winter and out during the summer. Treating windows with this type of coating has the additional benefit of reducing fading on furniture, fabrics, and carpets that are exposed to the damaging effects of direct sunlight.
Modern, scientifically developed window films are not the same as car tinting films that only darken windows to provide privacy. Some basic information regarding today’s residential films include:
- Increased comfort and energy savings
- Reduction of excessive heat gain through your windows
- Reduction of annoying outside glare
- Reduction of up to 99% of the sun's harmful ultraviolet rays
- Fade protection for your furniture, drapes, carpets, wood floors and more
