During these hot Norman Summers we are getting, Norman residents are starting to realize that their AC may not be enough. The main reason for this is because the real source of the heat in your homes during these hot summer months is untreated windows. Solar heat gain through your Norman windows seeps in at an alarming rate and heats up the air you are paying to keep cool. The two most popular solutions are either window tinting or window replacement with Low-E glass. So which one of these options is better?
Window Film Costs Less than Window Replacement
Most window replacement will run you between $40 and $55 per square foot. Compare this to solar control window film which is between $6.50-$8.00 per square foot. You can see the savings starts to add up.
Window Film Is Easier To Install
New window replacement is pretty labor intensive and can take quite a bit of time. Your existing windows would need to be removed; sometimes new windows require new framing, etc. Window tinting only takes a day at most to install by our professional, certified window film installers.
Window Film Has Added Benefits
Low-E windows and glass are good at what they do, cut down on the heat and glare. Window tinting blocks out the heat and glare as well but has other benefits. Window film blocks out the UV rays, provides residential privacy and can turn any window into safety glass.
So while Low-E windows can block out the heat and glare, adding window tint to your Norman home provides so many other benefits as well. Call Norman Window Film for a free estimate and learn more.
