Window tints will keep your Portland Summer cool!

We may not see the most extreme temperatures here in Portland, Oregon but that doesn't mean it doesn't get HOT when summer rolls in.  Many home and business owners are forced to make the difficult decision between the comfort of air conditioning and its high cost, or fanning the sweat off of their foreheads with a folded piece of paper to save a little cash.  What these folks may not realize is that  by having residential or commercial window tints installed on their windows, a large portion of that summer heat could be kept outside where it belongs! Most Portland homeowners spend a large portion of their monthly energy bills on heating and cooling (around 60%), turning any increases in energy efficiency into huge reductions in cost. Pacific Window Tinting can apply specialized window tints throughout your building that shield out 70% of the summer heat.  This benefit extends well into winter as the applied film actually helps retain heat when desired, making your investment in window tints even more valuable.  As a bonus, these films will block almost all of the harmful UV rays from the sun, protecting your couches, carpets, drapes, and other furniture from fading.  This also means that your window tint will provide you with a reduction in those pesky glares that plague you throughout the day.  Also, window tints are just as easy to clean as windows without tints, so you won't have to worry about any additional maintenance.

Why Tint Your Home Windows in Oregon?

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.
