There are many advantages to having your home’s windows tinted such as protecting your possessions and furnishings from harmful UV rays. More importantly, window tinting helps protect YOU from those same harmful rays. It also helps regulate the temperature inside your home which helps keep your energy costs down, lowering your utility bill.
A study published in 2014 by the nonprofit International Window Film Association showed that professionally installed window film is actually the most cost-effective way for residents in Florida to save on their utility bills when compared with other methods, such as upgrading insulation or installing new air conditioning or heat pumps. Federal studies have revealed that Florida residents spend forty percent more on their electric bills than residents of other states. Window tinting has been shown to save more energy per dollar spent than typical retrofit features.
Another great bonus you can get from having your home’s windows tinted is a possible tax credit! Tax laws are constantly changing, but certain window films meeting the criteria have been approved in the past. Thus far, the credit is ten percent of the cost of the window tint, up to $500! Window tint is considered an energy efficient improvement to your home.
