Phoenix Home Owners Save Money on Electric Bills with Residential Window Tinting
Most people love to save money and for those living in Phoenix, Arizona, it is no different. We often hear tips on how to save money on electric bills, but the one way is most overlooked, is by having residential window tinting installed. Quick and easy, it involves the placement of ultra-thin plastic films against the glass surface and has many benefits.
Perhaps the biggest strain on cooling the inside of a house, the sun’s heat will be greatly reduced by having the windows tinted. Seventy percent of the sun’s rays will be blocked, leaving the interior up to fifteen degrees cooler. A cooler house, leads to less time running the air conditioner, which leads to a big difference on the energy bill.
NO SUN DAMAGE
Many people love sitting in a warm patch of light at the kitchen table, reading the morning newspaper, never once thinking about the need for sunscreen until it’s too late. Harmful UV rays, which easily pass through unprotected windows, not only damages skin but furniture as well. Whether the color is fading on the couch, the artwork on the wall, or the carpet on the floor, having the windows tinted will stop the damage. Ninety five to ninety nine percent of the sun’s UV rays will be blocked with window tinting, leading to fewer sunburns and less furniture replacement.
Not only will getting the windows tinted save on the energy bill, but it can also save during tax season. The government offers many tax incentives for homeowners who make energy saving improvements. Credits can easily consist of up to thirty percent of the cost of the film, with a limit of fifteen hundred dollars. So not only do you save on energy bills, but on your taxes as well.
Tinted windows are glare free and provide something hard to find in rural areas; privacy. With windows covered in privacy film, there’s no need to buy expensive blinds and curtains. So cut out the endless shopping for the perfect color matched curtains, or the right sized blinds, and sit back and enjoy the new private and glare free living room.
Many types of window tinting can cut out the harsh UV rays without changing the color of the glass. With no need for curtains or blinds, natural light bathes the room. Better than the harsh light emitted from light bulbs, the natural light filtered through the windows, allows one to enjoy the sunlight without any of the worries. And without the need to turn lights on during the daytime, the electric bill will be a bit smaller.
Although it may seem like a good idea to cut corners and go with the cheapest installer, doing so can lead to a lot of problems. Improperly installed, the film can have wrinkles and bubbles marring the smooth surface of the glass. Also, films of a lesser quality may not only reflect light from the outside, but from the inside as well, making it extremely hard to see out at night. A good quality film will not have this problem, allowing perfect visibility no matter what time of day.
