Window Tint, Cost Savings, Our Environment and You

Window Tint, Cost Savings, Our Environment and You
  • Opening Intro -

    Window tinting, when it’s installed on a home, is designed to be a protective barrier from unwelcome elements. 

    Aside from absorbing the lion’s share of UV light (an immense benefit in its own right), window film is immensely effective in rejecting heat that penetrates into your home.

It’s a fact: If you’re a homeowner, almost invariably you’re accustomed to the mounting costs of home maintenance. Whether it’s property taxes, mortgage payments, or monthly bills, there’s no question that running a household is a costly function.  That’s why it’s hardly surprising that any form of expense reduction is a much welcome dose of relief.  However, what must homeowners do not know is that one measure of significant savings is also a practice that profits our environment.  For any homeowner who pays energy bills, the following information may be highly worthwhile.

Window tinting, when it’s installed on a home, is designed to be a protective barrier from unwelcome elements.  Aside from absorbing the lion’s share of UV light (an immense benefit in its own right), window film is immensely effective in rejecting heat that penetrates into your home. 

When heat-absorbing window film is installed, it is virtually certain to reduce your home’s need for cooling.  That, in turn causes your energy bills to decrease significantly.  Not only do the reduced cooling expenses save money for your household, it saves emissions from entering into the environment as well.

Although there are a number of things each of us can do to positively impact our environment, it goes without saying that each thing counts.  While window tinting your home may only be the first step towards reducing your personal carbon footprint, do not underestimate its value. Each effort taken (carpooling, recycling, biking instead of driving) is one more contributor towards benefitting our planet.

What is unique about window tinting is that it’s short-term incentives work in concert with the long -term sustainability it affords.  While many eco-friendly activities require participants to alter their routines, window tinting accomplishes what many already strive for: saving money.

Governments around the world have taken note of this as well. Did you know that countries around the globe offer tax incentives for window tinting? In fact, in the United States, 10% of window tint product costs are tax deductable up to $500.  More information is available through the IRS. It’s also advisable to check if your state or municipality offers incentives of their own.

Although window tinting may be seen as a short-term expenditure, consider this: Experts point out that home tinting can pay for itself in as little as one year.  This is especially true for those living in warm weather climate as well as those with large window exposure into their homes.  With lower energy savings, perhaps you’ll have more funds available to allocate to something more useful such as retirement.

On top of monetary savings, consider the emissions that might be saved over a 10-year period by tinting your home.  You may wish go a step further and calculate the percentage by which your carbon footprint might decrease. It may be true that one tinted home may not be enough to save our environment in itself, yet environmental preservation is about collective action more than anything. Just as much as cost savings is about monitoring every facet of your expenses, each eco-friendly action taken ultimately contributes towards the bottom line. Whether it’s net cost savings or net emissions saved, the effort undertaken is worthwhile in more ways than one.

In this decade, we are all witnesses to an uncertain economy and environmental future. Perhaps window tinting is one practice among many that many of us will turn to.  When considering the possibilities, it’s difficult not to ponder what’s possible.
