Fight The Heat And High Energy Bills With Residential Window Films

Most of the country is in the thick of the hottest days of the Summer. For many of us, the warm Summer weather is something we look forward to all year long. However, it often also brings higher energy bills as we use our air conditioning to keep our home cooler and more comfortable. With this in mind, we wanted to share some ways that residential window films, retrofitted to your existing windows, can help reduce Summer AC bills.

This article will discuss how residential window films can reduce the load on your air conditioning system which saves you money not only on utility bills but also HVAC system maintenance.

How Can Residential Window Films Help Save Energy?

The first thing you may be wondering is how these films can lower your utility bill by reducing the load on your air conditioning system. The simple explanation is that window film installed on the interior surface of your existing windows will reduce the amount of the sun’s heat coming into your home through the glass.

By stopping a portion of the heat from entering at the window, your home does not get as warm and the AC system does not need to work as hard to keep interior temperatures comfortable.

This reduction in work by your AC unit saves you on energy costs by reducing your usage at the best time of the day as many utility companies charge a premium at peak hours.

Unfortunately, this demand for air conditioning is also happening all throughout your area at the same time.

This spike in demand for energy allows the utility company to charge a premium on the energy you use during this period.

The good news is that residential window films are reducing the heat making its way into your home through the windows during these peak hours. This reduction allows your air conditioning to not work as hard, and use as less energy to keep your home comfortable during these peak hours.

In addition, as a side benefit, the home’s air conditioning system will not need to run as often to keep up with demand. Not only does this save you money on energy costs as mentioned above, but will also reduce you system maintenance costs from wear and tear from extended use on the AC system.

Your air conditioning unit consists of numerous components that each have an effective service life. The longer, and harder, a unit is forced to run, the faster these parts will wear out and need replaced.

Furthermore, as parts degrade they often do not work as efficiently as they did when new. The resulting system inefficiency translates into more energy being needed to get the same results in home cooling.

In summary, this article has explored the benefits of residential window films. By reducing heat gain in your home, window films can help you save money on energy bills throughout the summer and for years to come. The films also help to reduce strain on your air conditioning system, potentially extending its lifespan and reducing maintenance costs.

With a variety of types available, there’s a residential window film to suit your needs and budget. Consider adding window films to your home improvement plans to start enjoying the benefits today.
