It is said that about 49% of your household electric bill comes from heating and cooling – A standard central 3 ton unit cost about $.25 per hour. Depending on how long your AC or heater is running those quarters sure add up fast! Some recommend setting your thermostat between 78º – 80º in the summer time and 68º – 70º in the winter. I don’t know about you but the idea of trying to relax in a home that is 80º inside sounds miserable.
Why not invest in window film for your home? Window film can result in a 30% reduction of cooling/heating costs per home. Windows are the weakest link between the inside of your home and the great outdoors. Depending on how many you have in your home and how much heat or cold they let in, U.S. Window films can help protect the temperature of your home and those pricey quarters it take to get it there! Maintaining the temperature that you prefer while running the energy hog less often. Now that’s sounds like a better idea to me!
