In Florida, demand for electricity is growing even faster than the population according to a recent ACEEE report. Determining how to lower energy costs and mitigate rising electricity consumption is on the minds of elected officials, city planners, and most of all, the homeowners who are hit hardest by the rising energy costs. According to a new study by the IWFA (International Window Film Association), the answer to the problem might be window tinting.

Window Film Gets the Spotlight

The IWFA study compared the installation of window film on home residences to adding ceiling insulation, air sealing, replacement of air conditioning, and replacement of heating. Out of all forms of energy optimization, the study showed that: “…internal and external window films save more energy per dollar spent than typical retrofit features. From a state energy policy perspective, internal and external window films are more effective than ceiling insulation, replacing mechanical equipment and air sealing…”

Depending on the type of window tinting installed, UV rays can be reduced by as much as 85%. This reduction can equate to as much as a 30% reduction in electric costs based on season, number of windows, and strength of film.
