Have you ever considered having a window film installed on the windows of your home? Well, whether you have thought about it or never even considered it, we wanted to give you three reasons that you should consider installing a quality home window film today.
1. Window Film Saves Energy – Did you know that one of the primary areas that heat enters your home is through the windows? Sure, you can use blinds and curtains to try and reduce the heat coming in on those hot days, but then you lose the view out the windows and your house feels like a cave. There are many window films available today that can achieve a huge reduction in the heat coming through your windows without even noticeably changing the appearance of your glass. When you can reduce the heat coming in, your air conditioning system does not have to work as hard and that can save you on energy costs.
2. Window Film Helps Save Your Furnishings – It seems like everything is susceptible to damage from the harmful rays of the sun. Whether it is your furniture, carpets or hardwood floors, unprotected furnishings will show the signs of sun damage most often in the form of fading. A major contributor to this fading damage is the UV rays from the sun. Nearly all window films that we offer block 99+% of these harmful UV rays which extends the useful life of your furnishings.
3. Window Film Can Help Save Your Life – The same harmful UV rays that can destroy your furniture are also harmful to your health. While most of us are aware of the dangers UV exposure when spending time outdoors, we often spend many hours near windows in our homes without thinking twice about protecting ourselves. The Skin Cancer Foundation recently published an article about the dangers of skin exposure through windows and how window film is an effective solution.
