Unlike the stock market or other investments, there are no market fluctuations or crashes. Window film provides a steady income stream in the form of savings on your electric bill. You’ll also enjoy many other tangible long term benefits.

This article focuses on the investment value or “Return on Investment” and hidden value of window tinting. Window tinting is also known as solar control window film. The multiple benefits of these high tech products never cease to amaze. When you add the total value of these benefits, you’ll see why the “Return on Investment” for installing solar control window film is quite attractive.

Ask anyone who already had window film installed on their home or business. They’ll probably tell you; “Oh I would never go without it” or “It makes such a huge difference”. Why are they so impressed with the results? That depends on who you ask and what their objectives were. The primary reason is to reduce the sun’s heat and annoying glare, so comfort is a large motivating factor.

Comfortable Savings

When direct sun rays shines through clear window glass in the hotter months, your impulse is to adjust your air conditioning to a lower temperature to feel cooler. When solar window film is installed, it reduces the heat. When the heat is reduced, your natural impulse to adjust your thermostat will be reduced.

Less solar heat gain also equals less hours that your air conditioning system needs to labor along with money saved on the cooling portion of your electric bill.

ROI: Most window films will pay for themselves within 4-6 years in electrical savings alone. Once the investment pays for itself, all future savings can be considered income. That’s income that you wouldn’t have had without window film, so in 10 to 12 years you essentially doubled the money you invested. Investment Value: Comfort, savings and extended life of your air conditioning equipment. Stop and think; What’s that worth to you?

Window film provides a good level of protection 24 hours a day against these threats. Depending on the object that breaks the glass, the film will hold most of the shattered  glass in place and in the frame, the chances of personal injury from flying shards of glass will be greatly reduced, You may not even need to board-up the window until the glass can be replaced because the film will probably keep the glass intact enough to keep rain or insects out.
