If you’ve ever lived through a summer in California, you know that the heat becomes very intense! Between the heat and humidity, we take refuge in our homes, or jump from one air conditioned spot to the next in order to survive. This summer heat can raise the temperature in your home or car significantly. This forces your air conditioning unit to work twice as hard,
therefore often doubling your electric bills. And, in warm climates such as this area, the heat and intense sunshine is not only limited to the summertime, it permeates throughout the year!
Improve your comfort, finances, and your relationships
When we receive a utility bill that is higher than average, it’s amazing how quickly we begin pointing fingers. If you live with your spouse, children, or a roommate, you may have had conversations that involved phrases such as:
• “Who keeps turning the air conditioner on?”
• “Stop turning down the thermostat!”
• “I think you left on every light in this house!”
• “Do you really need every fan on high?”
• “That’s it, we’re living by candlelight!”
When it’s summertime in California, air conditioning accounts for nearly 80% of your electric bill. So, even though we may be very conscious of conserving energy, it’s difficult to save money when the a/c is working so hard. Nobody wants to be told they can’t turn the air conditioner cooler or turn the fans up when they are hot. Then, of course, the discomfort of the heat usually escalates these disagreements, creating a“heated conversation” in more ways than one.
Well, we have good news. There is a simple solution that will save your wallet, and your sanity! Having your home windows tinted not only saves you from the uncomfortable heat but also saves you from the skyrocketing electricity bills. This, in turn, saves your family or roommates from the inevitable arguments that follow.
In addition to reducing your air conditioning costs, window tinting can also decrease your electric bill through allowing you to use less electric lighting. Because it eliminates the glare and heat, you can take more advantage of the natural light, decreasing your need for lamps or overhead lighting during the day.
