Window Tint Cost & Window Tinting Prices

Typical Payback 3 Years or Less

Window tinting prices are significantly less than other energy saving solutions – making window tint one of the best returns on investment for your building.

According to the survey "Energy Saving Trends in the Facility Design and Management Industry," payback is the biggest barrier to implementing an energy savings project for facility managers and architects. In addition, the majority of the facility managers and architects who responded to the survey reported that 2-4 years was the most acceptable payback period of an energy savings upgrade.

Factors in evaluating window tint cost include: payback, initial investment, monthly savings, increased building value, LEED Certification, and install time.

Window Tint Cost Minus Energy Savings=Fast Payback

With payback top of mind when recommending energy savings upgrades, facility managers and architects should feel confident suggesting Vista window tinting. The window tint can help reduce a building's energy costs by 5-15% and cut solar heat gain up to 75%. Thus, the annual energy cost savings that Vista window tint provides allows a building to quickly recoup its window tint costs – typically in three years or less.

In terms of the price of window replacement, window tinting prices are considerably lower. With an average of 6.6 times greater cost savings per dollar invested and much quicker payback than total window replacement with new low-E windows, Vista window tint is a smart energy saving solution.

While building owners benefit from the energy cost savings that low window tinting prices afford them, tenants and employees also experience its benefits. Window tinting provides increased comfort and protection from harmful UV rays that allow for a more enjoyable environment. In addition, tenants or employees appreciate minimal inconvenience during the window tinting installation, which can be completed in a fraction of the time of window replacement.
