Solar Window Film Tax Credits
Homeowners can often receive a 30% credit on the costs of solar window film, up to $1,200. A tax credit is more beneficial than a tax deduction. A credit reduces your income tax bill directly, whereas a deduction reduces the amount of taxable income you owe. The resulting increase or decrease in refund or payment is direct, unlike the indirect result of a deduction.
If you have any questions about the window film tax credit, please contact your tax experts to see how it applies to you. These credits will be taken using IRS Form 5695.
Return On Investment Analysis
SPARRA can run the numbers for you to show you that this investment makes sense! Solar window film can make an impact of up to 30% of your heating and cooling costs which make up an average of 70% of your electric bill.
Each film offers certain properties which will be matched with how many windows you have facing in each direction and by the square footage of those windows. Giving you an estimate on what you stand to save each month by applying the film of your choice.

Energy Analysis Modeling
By submitting the glass type, area of glass surfaces and the orientation of glass, you have enabled us to conduct an energy analysis using a program called Capshot. Capshot software uses your building information, your regional weather information, your estimated HVAC efficiency, and utility gas and electric costs to calculate energy saved with the solar window film.
We have assumed the following information in the Capshot energy analysis:
|Radiation profile for:||USA, NV, Las Vegas|
|When the heater is on during the day:||Mixed|
|Mixed conditions were used – Solar heat gains during these times do not impact HVAC load|
|Internal building heat load:||Medium occupancy|
|Building occupancy schedule:||6 am to 6 pm (0600 to 1800)|
|Window type:||Double pane clear|
|Window film name:||TrueVue 5|
|Warranty term: (Years)||12|
|Total install cost: ( USD)||2,500|
|North facing glass: (ft)||73|
|East facing glass: (ft)||79|
|South facing glass: (ft)||72|
|West facing glass: (ft)||26|
|Skylight facing glass: (ft)||0|
|HVAC efficiency: (EER)||10|
|Averaged electricity cost:( USD)||0.15/kWh|
|Averaged gas cost:( USD)||1.16/Therm|
Fade Reduction And UV Protection
The Solar Gard energy control film also reduces fading by blocking up to 99% of ultraviolet radiation (UV). Fade reduction will reduce the rate at which interior furnishings such as carpeting and furniture need to be replaced. Solar Gard films help by filtering visible light, rejecting solar heat and blocking over 99% of harmful UV light – significantly reducing fading damage potential.
How It Works
Schedule a time for a professional to take measurements of your windows and locate their facing directions.
Professional will fill out an Energy Audit form and submit it to SPARRA’s lab for analysis.

IT’S THAT SIMPLE!
SPARRA can help you reduce your actual usage and go green, which further reduces your energy and cost and is better for the environment.
If you spend $100 on your electricity bill today, that means you’ll spend over $36,000 on electricity over the next 30 years! With solar, you can avoid that cost, as well as any future electricity rate increases, by offsetting your bill with solar window film up to 30%, leading to significant financial savings and preserving the life of your HVAC.
Solar control window films* covered in the EPD sold during 2010-2011 saved 2.2 million tons of CO2 from entering the atmosphere over their lifetime. That’s equal to:
- the carbon attributed to combusting 221 million gallons of gasoline, or
- the carbon offset by 50 million tree seedlings grown for 10 years.
