Window tints will keep your Portland Summer cool!

Posted on

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.

Adding window tints to your home or business is not only practical, but it also improves the appearance of your building by adding a personalized touch to the exterior.  You have the freedom to choose a residential or commercial tint that is just right for you, ranging from so light that you won’t even know it’s there to as dark as the windows on a celebrity’s limo!  Your design options don’t have to end there, however.  The sky is the limit and we are happy to help you with all of your window tinting needs.

At Pacific Window Tinting we use several sophisticated computer programs approved by the Department of Energy to evaluate things like your building’s exposure, square footage of glass, and type of glass. We can then project future energy savings based upon the solar film you select, giving you peace of mind in your investment.  Contact us online or call us at 503.612.9000 for a FREE analysis of your Portland, Oregon building or for more information on how we can help you lower your monthly energy bill with residential or commercial window tinting.
