How can You Save Money on Your Energy Bill this Summer?
Summertime brings us some of the best weather of the year, and these hot summer days are perfect for going to the beach or spending time outside. However, as the weather gets hotter the more people tend to use their air conditioners. Subsequently, energy consumption tends to rapidly spike in the middle of the day during the summer because of the heat. Not only does more energy consumption mean a higher monthly energy bill, it is also worse for the environment and even your own health. At Tint-Pro, with products like our 3M™ Night Vision Series and our 3M™ Thinsulate™ Series, we specialize in window films and tints that can help you reduce your amount of energy consumption this summer.
The Importance of Saving Energy during the Summer
It is easy to consume a lot of energy in the summer without even realizing it, but it is important to try and save energy when you can. First of all, saving energy is good for the environment. It reduces pollution in air and water, and it also saves natural resources that are required to produce the energy. It can benefit your own health as well. Reducing the amount of energy that you use can improve the air quality in your workspace or home, and improved air quality that you breathe every day can lead to other health benefits as a result. Not only is it better for the health of yourself and the environment, but it will also save you money too. Energy bills can be expensive in the coldest and hottest months of the year because of the need for more heating or air conditioning.
How Window Tinting & Film Helps Save Energy
When it comes to trying to save energy, you must consider why you are using the energy in the first place. In the middle of sunny summer days, you are likely using more air conditioning because of how hot it is getting in your home. That is where window films and tints can help you reduce your energy usage. At Tint-Pro, our Residential Window Tinting Services can equip your home with 3M™ Residential Window Films, which are proven to help reduce heat in your home. Our films reduce up to 99 percent of the sun’s ultraviolet rays and reject up to 79 percent of the solar heat that may otherwise come through a window. With these window films reducing the amount of heat getting into your home, you will have less of a need to run your air conditioner and can greatly lower your energy bill.
Other Benefits of Window Tinting
While reducing the amount of heat getting into your home and helping you to lower your energy consumption are great benefits already, window tinting has more benefits than you may realize.
Reduce Glare Control
Window tinting also helps with glare control, making it easier for you to use computers and television screens, but also making glare off of reflective materials in your home less bothersome. Learn more about our 3M™ Thinsulate Series.
It is no secret that tinted windows are more difficult to see through. Typically, people think of this for vehicles, but the same goes for buildings. Our window films add a layer of privacy to your home or business, allowing you to feel more comfortable in your living space or workspace.
As we mentioned above, our films reduce up to 99 percent of the sun’s ultraviolet rays, which normally cause up to 40 percent of fading problems. With less sunlight getting into your home, your furniture, curtains, and other items that are prone to fade will have extra protection and it will reduce fading.

Lastly but perhaps most importantly, window films can help with the security of your home. With less visibility from the outside, it helps to conceal your family and valuables from potential burglars.
