I have tinting on the back windows of my car, and love the anonymity from the back seat. But tintedÂ windows inside a home?Â Who knew.
Turns out that Angie's List -- the members-onlyÂ contractor'sÂ ranking site -- Â has a new section for window tinting companies that apply productsÂ said toÂ reduceÂ glare,Â reduce heat and reduce energy costs. There evenÂ areÂ clear "tints" that do the trick.
Here's the clincher for me: Not only can it help keep my houseÂ cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter, but I won't have to replace my historic, wood bungalow windows to do it! Turns out theÂ government'sÂ Recovery Act stimulus energy tax credit applies to this stuff as well.Â
