During the winter the sun sits lower in the sky because of the Earth’s axis, this means sun shines through your windows at a direct angle instead of from an overhead angle like in the summer.

Increased Glare From Less Tree Coverage

As you surely know Austin is lovely in the fall. The weather is mild, the leaves sometimes turn and like most places, they fall off the trees. This leaves your glass windows and door completely unblocked from the powerful sun–allowing harsh unchecked light to hit your windows
