To reduce the air conditioning bills in your home:

  • Install a tinted film on the inside of your windows to reduce the amount of heat coming in your house by over 60% and prevent harmful UV rays from damaging fabrics and furnishings.
  • Add awnings to sunny windows to reduce the temperature of a room by up to 15 degrees and save 25% on the air conditioning for that room.
  • Plant shade trees that shed their leaves in winter on the sunny (south and west) sides of your house.
