Why Energy Conservation Through Window Film Really Matters

Energy is a big issue right now and probably will be for the foreseeable future. Why? Because as the world’s population grows there simply isn’t enough. Here in Salt Lake City renewable energy is on people’s minds because fossil fuels are expensive and cause damage to the environment–they will also, eventually run out. While sustainable energy sources continue to be developed, conservation is the key to success monetarily and environmentally. One way to conserve energy in your home is through window film.   

How Window Film Conserves Energy

The EPA is clear that lowering bills from heating and cooling buildings is a preferred way to reduce energy usage in homes and businesses. In our home of SLC, we have incredibly hot summers and cold winters too–so this means we have chances to save year-round. We understand it It may seem like one house or business reducing energy won’t do anything but collectively across millions of homes, it sure does!

Conserving Energy With Window Tints and Films

There are a ton of little tips and tricks you can use to save energy costs inside. Things like turning off lights, unplugging unused appliances, using LED light bulbs are all helpful. But, one of the most powerful and wallet-friendly is to have us here at Window Film Salt Lake City install energy-efficient window film for you. These films are the latest in conservation technology and will help your residential and commercial windows function better in more ways than one! 

Window Film Traps in Heated and Cooled Air

Window film technology is hot right now (no pun intended)! People are using it in droves because even though it appears to be only a thin layer of plastic–it is actually a powerful insulator for glass. It gives single pane glass the insulating power of double pane and double pane the effectiveness of single pane. This benefits both the environment and for your wallet. 

Window Tinting Reflects Heat Away From Interiors

As much as 40% of the heated and cooled air you pay to treat right out the windows! But you can keep it from doing this by having window tinting applied. Window film is known to redirects up to 80% of that heat back outside when the sun is beating down on your windows too! This keeps your home way cooler making it more comfortable and lowering your energy bills. 

Window Film Reduces HVAC Load

When your HVAC systems run constantly to keep up with heated and cooled air escaping through the glass on your windows they run less efficiently and use more power. This causes them to break down faster and more frequently and need to be replaced prematurely. This is expensive for you and adds wasted HVAC parts to the growing trash heap humans are creating.  

As you can tell from above–window film is not only a green solution but one that adds more cash to the wallet. Contact us today at Window Film Salt Lake City to learn more about the power of energy-efficient window film.
