One question we get a lot from Denver homeowners is–does window tint really save me money? The answer is–in our experience and that of all of our customers–yes. There are also many studies showing that window film puts money back in people’s pockets each year– and as little as three years. Not only does window film save you money, but there are also three ways it does so.

The three ways energy-efficient window film saves homeowners money

  1. Energy Efficient Window Film Saves Homeowners on Heating and Cooling Bills: Owning a home is costly. As any homeowner knows, there is always something that needs to be updated that will cost money. So, saving on utility bills saves you money for other repairs and improvements. Energy-efficient window film which drastically reduces solar heat gain– lower cooling bills. It also increases insulation– lowering heating bills. In fact, it could save you up to 15% on your utility bills each year and also qualify you for tax rebates. Best of all, it has a quick ROI–paying for itself in as little as three years!
  2. Energy Efficient Window Films Saves Homeowners on HVAC Repairs: Repairs to heating and cooling systems are incredibly expensive. So not putting too much strain on your HVAC systems is a good idea. When heated and cooled air escapes out untreated windows it causes these systems to work harder. When heating and cooling systems are overworked, they simply break down faster. This means more frequent and costly repairs. When you have energy-efficient window film installed, it also reduces the load on your HVAC system–saving you on these repairs. 
  3. Energy Efficient Window Film Saves Homeowners on Lighting Bills: Most energy-efficient window films are designed to save you money by insulating or reducing solar heat gain. There are, however, window films engineered to manipulate sunlight too. These films, called daylight redirecting films, Have the added benefit of cutting back on lighting costs. This reduces the need for light inside your building by sending sunlight deeper inside your structure. This saves you even more money in lighting bills.
