Some interesting facts

The U.S. Department of Energy has declared the time for Energy Awareness – the perfect time to tout the energy-saving benefits of Solar window films.

Did you know that window film is one of the best ways to cut energy bills and make older buildings more energy-efficient? Here’s what Pro-Tint can do for homeowners and facility managers:

  • Cut energy bills up to 30%: Solar window film keeps a room cooler by rejecting up to 79% of the total solar energy, sharply reducing the use of cooling systems especially in commercial buildings
  • Save money: Professionally installed window film costs much less than replacement glass
  • Make other energy-saving products work better: Window film multiplies the return on investment of lighting, HVAC and refrigeration. For LEED certification, window film can be applied toward six credit categories

Heating and Cooling Impacts of Tinting

Tired of paying way too much to cool your home each summer?  You can either sweat it out by raising the thermostat up several degrees, or you could have Pro-Tint install cost-effective window films that will lower your energy bills and make your home more comfortable at the same time.

Solar heat pours in through unprotected windows, causing uneven temperatures, hotspots and a never-ending battle with the thermostat. By having solar window films installed by Pro-Tint, you’ll be keeping up to 80 percent of solar energy out of your building, resulting in a cooler, more temperate climate for less strain on your HVAC unit and significantly lower utility bills. In fact, this film is so effective that it usually pays for itself in just a couple of years. In any location, Pro-Tint can help lower your operating expenses, which increases property value – an added benefit when selling or leasing.

Solar control window films installed by Pro-Tint can dramatically improve your automobile, home or office in five specific ways:

  • Provide impressive energy savings
  • Improve comfort year-round
  • Help protect against ultraviolet damage
  • Diminish bothersome glare
  • Enhance exterior appearance
