The Top 3 Benefits Of UV Blocking Window Film
UV Protection For Austin Homes
As a homeowner, you might constantly be looking for ways to maintain the value of your house. One product that can help keep your home looking its best is UV blocking window film. UV blocking window film protects your home from damaging ultraviolet rays and comes with additional benefits:
Window Film Prevents Sun Damage
Austin receives a lot of sunlight due to its proximity to the equator, which means Texans can enjoy nearby destinations like McKinney Falls State Park or Ladybird Lake for much of the year. Because there is such an abundance of exposure to the sun, it is necessary to protect ourselves and our homes against its harmful quality of ultraviolet radiation. The Skin Cancer Foundation found that 1 in 5 Americans will have skin cancer over the course of the lifetime, but we can work to reduce that statistic.
UV blocking window film can be used to protect our skin from the adverse effects of the sun when we are indoors. When left untreated, windows expose us to UV rays. Installing window film blocks 99.9% of this dangerous radiation that has harmful effects on our bodies and deteriorates our home furnishings more quickly.
Window Film Reduces High Electricity Bill
An added benefit to UV blocking window film is lower energy bills, especially in the hottest months of the year. With the heat and humidity, it may feel impossible to be anywhere without air conditioning in Austin when it is summertime. UV blocking window film is manufactured using multi-layered optics and nano-technology to block solar heat baking your home. This means less heat will build up in your home throughout the day so you can reduce your high electricity bill.
Window Film Helps Create A More Comfortable Home
UV blocking window film creates a more comfortable ambiance in your home. At certain times of the day, you may experience glares that make it difficult to sit in certain parts of your home, especially if you are working on a computer screen or trying to view a movie on your television. Instead of using unflattering black-out curtains, you can use UV blocking window films to let the right amount of natural light in through your windows. Instead of feeling like you’re in a dark cave, you can enjoy the sunlight inside your home.
