Weatherizing a home or building can involve many products or services – one of the most common being window replacement. However, new windows are expensive, and when budgets are tight, “weatherization” projects may end right there. Many people don’t know that proven energy savings are easily achieved at a fraction of window replacement costs by installing a quality window film product on existing serviceable (properly sealed, etc.) windows – leaving the homeowner or building manager with a lot more money to add other weatherization products, and increase savings. Typically window film can save up to 30% and more on the air conditioning portion of your electric bill; and when “piggybacked” with other energy-saving products can substantially reduce utility bills, carbon footprints – even qualify for LEED credits!
Solar-X of Sarasota is Sarasota’s original window film dealer; serving the area since 1973. We carry a full line of high quality products; including SolarGard® and Panorama® window film – both acknowledged industry leaders. These environmentally responsible window films – the only brands measured and certified as “carbon negative” – are recognized by the Clinton Climate Initiative as a proven energy saver!
Some of the advantages of window film installations are:
•Performance is certified by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC).
•Installed cost is a fraction of window replacement.
•No building permit is necessary. Delivery is immediate
•Rapid return on investment.
•Less environmental impact on landfills (disposal of construction materials and old windows).
Finally there is cost. To install a 3′ x 5′ window with “Low E” glass would cost approximately $450.00 to $500.00. Removal and installation labor would cost approximately $200.00, and there may be some construction work needed. To install window tinting on a similarly sized window would cost less than $100.00. Window tinting installs in minutes, with no construction work, and the cost savings can be put to use purchasing other energy-saving products; leading to additional savings on overall electric bills!
