Why Tint Your Home Windows in Oregon?

Posted on

Oregon Window Tinting can be examined based on different criteria depending on the goals of the property owner, in this case, a homeowner. One Oregon window tint might provide higher heat reduction, while another Oregon window tint might provide more privacy. Oregon Window tints possess several beneficial qualities, but there can be a trade-off. Knowing how to adequately evaluate these qualities can help you make your final decision.

Very likely, energy savings is one of the most important criteria taken into consideration when  deciding on which Oregon window film to choose. In new homes, windows can cause approximately 75 percent of heat gain during the summer months, which dramatically increases air-conditioning costs. This gain in heat can also affect your overall budget. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, close to 45 percent of a regular utility bill is applied to heating and cooling.

A number of factors determine the amount of energy savings, including tree shading or the orientation and location of the house, along with the type of Oregon window tint or film used. When analyzing the ability of a tint to reject heat, you must first look at what’s causing the heat. Most of the heat from the sun comes in the form of infrared rays, so blocking those rays from entering the home will help to reduce heat inside the home.

When analyzing heat reduction, there are two very important factors to look at in an Oregon window tinting: the solar heat gain coefficient and solar reflectance. The solar heat gain coefficient involves the amount of solar energy that the film is letting into the building. The lower the solar heat gain coefficient, the less heat transmitted into the building. Another important measure is that of solar reflectance, or the amount of sunlight reflected by the film. Films with high reflectance ratings will provide greater heat reduction.
