As energy prices rise, more and more homeowners are looking for ways to save on their utility bills. It has been known that most home owners and consumers would result to changing their appliances to those new energy saving appliances or even change their light bulbs to those energy saving bulbs in order to save energy from their home, but what they didn’t know is the amount of energy that has been lost through their windows and they still haven’t thought of a single solution to that problem. It has been studied that he amount of energy lost through the inefficient and ineffective window treatments reach up to 30& and that is something that should be solved already. There are two portions why these energies get lost, the first is because of the leakage of air passing through the window, and the other reason is due to the heat flowing through the frame and glass of the window. While others who can afford the new energy efficient type windows in order to solve their problem against energy loss, not everyone can afford to buy these new windows since they are way more expensive compared to the normal windows that a lot of homeowners usually use. One alternative that is gaining popularity is residential window tinting.
Tinting can also be very helpful in keeping the house warm most especially if it is cold season since it prevents the heat from coming out of your windows. Window tint acts as an additional layer of insulation preventing heat loss through the glass pane while still allowing enough visible light in from outside to keep the inside of your home bright. However, when it is summer season, then the air condition units inside the home are working harder just to keep the house cool enough from the unbearable heat. Using window tints during summer season is also a good thing since it helps block as much as 99% of the harmful ultraviolet rays from entering your home which makes the heat bearable. Window tints are really beneficial since it helps block the unwanted heat from outside into entering the home and at the same time, it helps the cool air from staying inside the house. The tint insulation properties can definitely make your home more comfortable as it balances the temperature inside your home. Of course, due to this type of process, it has been known that by applying tint to your window does not only help you save a lot of energy but also lets you feel comfortable inside your home.
