As we head into Summer, most of us likely have a home improvement list we plan on working on in the coming months. Here are three reasons why implementing a high quality window film should be on that list.
Home Improvement Checklist
Increased Home Comfort
Window films work to block excessive heat and glare from entering your home through windows. Most homes have some windows that get a lot of sun throughout the day. In these areas of the home, there can be hot spots from the heat entering. These are often accompanied by irritating glare. Often, in an effort to keep these areas of the home comfortable, you need to adjust your air conditioning. The problem then becomes that the home is too cool in areas where the sun is not shining in. By using window films on these specific windows, you can reduce the heat and glare where the problem lies without covering the window with blinds or drapery.
Reduce Energy Costs
Continuing with the point above, if you have windows that are allowing excessive heat to enter the home, your air conditioning is likely having to work overtime to keep your home comfortable. All that extra running is costing you money. When you reduce the heat entering the home, your air conditioning will not need to work as hard to keep the home comfortable. As a result, you will save money on utility bills.
Preserve Floors, Furniture and Furnishings
Our guess is that other things on your home improvement list may be things like new flooring, some furniture, artwork, etc. If that is true, you want to be sure to protect those things from premature fading and sun damage. The primary sources of sun damage and fading are UV, Heat and Visible Light. Window film works to reduce all three of these primary areas of sun damage. In fact, most films reduce over 99% of the sun’s UV rays which accounts for 40% of the total causes of sun damage.
Hopefully these three points have you placing window film on that home improvement list. If you have any questions or would like to arrange a free, no obligation assessment of your home and how window film can help, please contact us.
