Beat The Heat By Tinting The Windows On Your House
We're in for triple-digit temperatures this week. The blazing sun can put a strain on your home's air conditioning and interior!
Liz Farley says tinting her windows made her home much more liveable, "It really cut down on the amount of sun coming in and on fading from my carpet, my furniture." She says it also saved her money in the long run, "I think its a pretty inexpensive investment when you look at the savings to your furniture, your carpet as well as energy."
Eric Williams, a Lamination Specialist for Tint World says tinting your windows is more than just a cosmetic thing. He says it protects from the sun's harmful UV rays, "It's going to block the UV A & B from coming in it's going to stop fading on tile and furniture and it's also going to regulate the interior air conditioning."
Williams also says you should see a difference in your energy bill within six months of tinting your windows, "It's going to save you money in the long run. It's going to help your air conditioner regulate. It's not going to be running all the time."
The basic cost for tinting the windows in your home can range from six to eight dollars a square foot.
