10 Apr 4 Ways Window Film Can Save You Money
Adding window film to your home can lead to some long term savings!
1. It can reduce your energy bills
If your windows are in pretty good shape, you can actually pay off the cost of window film through energy savings much more quickly than you could pay off new energy-efficient windows. While 3M window film can pay for itself in as little as six months, most homeowners find that the film becomes cost neutral after about 36 months.
Though the actual savings vary depending on the size of your house and its number of windows, high performance window film can typically help you save $200 or more on electricity annually.
2. Your AC will thank you
Window film can also help you extend the life of your air conditioning system, which is essential during the hot summer months we face down here in the south. Purchasing a new HVAC system is expensive and time consuming. Window film can reduce the stress on your existing air conditioner so that it lasts longer.
3. It protects your furnishings
3M films block up to 99 percent of the sun’s harmful UV rays, which slows the fading of your valuable furnishings and flooring. When it comes to protecting your recently re-finished hardwoods or irreplaceable family photos, 3M Window Film has got your back.
4. You may qualify for tax credits or rebates
In some states, you can actually get a tax credit for improving the energy efficiency of your home. Speak to a 3M dealer in your area to see if you may qualify for a rebate.
