Energy Cost Savings

Experience cooler summers and warmer winters, all while saving money!

There is something so peaceful about a comfy chair in front of a window with a good view. However, for some homes and businesses, their windows might receive a lot of direct sunlight during certain times of the year. This can cause hot spots that overwork our A/C units and make sitting in those areas dreadfully uncomfortable. Another issue that arises when regulating our home or business’s temperature is the loss of heat through our windows from the inside of our home in the winter time. All of these problems can be solved with a specialized Tint Solution that results in long-term energy cost savings right in your pocket!

Michigan Tint Solutions offers specialized window films that block varying levels of solar energy that can cause your spaces to heat up. Many of our customers report an average of 5% to 15% energy cost savings immediately after window film is installed. This means that you can still enjoy natural light in your home or business, while keeping out unwanted heat. Our window films also act as an insulation factor in the winter time, keeping heat in and taking some stress off of your heating units.

How does heat blocking film work?

When light from the sun enters into your home or business through the window, not only is there the visible light that we see, but there is different types of light that we cannot see entering as well. This range of light is referred to as Solar Energy and it is important to understand the entire spectrum when determining the best window film for your home. The heat that we feel on a sunny day is mainly generated from near infrared light which makes up over 50% of the solar energy light spectrum. Some window film may claim to reduce heat but in reality they are only controlling the visible light entering the room, causing the light to be dimmer but often not adding any heat reducing benefits. 

To truly see a cost reduction on your energy bill, it is important to use a window film that blocks a large portion of infrared while controlling some of the visible light entering your home. When this is achieved, the spaces behind your windows will feel noticeably cooler. This means your entire home will heat up slower in the summer time, allowing your air conditioning to operate less and saving you money. In the winter, our window film holds heat in by not allowing the warmth to be lost through the cold glass. This means that with a one-time installation of window film on your home or business, you can see permanent savings year round!

At Michigan Tint Solutions, our various window films offers excellent heat reduction by blocking a percentage of near infrared light while still allowing a large amount of visible light through. This can be accomplished with a light, minimal tint and without a reflective appearance, allowing you to maintain your exterior home or business design. To determine the best film to reduce heat in your home or business, set up a free consultation with our professional team.
