It is widely known that the sun is harmful to our skin and eyes. But did you know those UV rays can also damage your home? While the sun provides light and warmth, it can also be harmful to your furnishings and family, both inside the home and out. Thankfully, Sun Control Plus in Old Forge, PA, has a variety of residential window films and other ways to shield your home from any sun damage, so all you feel is warmth and light.
Just being inside does not protect you from the sun’s harmful UV rays. Unless you have specially treated glass, those rays can penetrate windows and glass doors. Over time, that sun exposure can be harmful to your family, causing skin cancer and even cataracts. A quality window film applied to all of your windows can actually reject up to 99% of the sun’s rays, effectively providing a “solar shield” for your family.
But the sun has other damaging effects as well. It can cause excessive glare, make your A/C work overtime during the warm months, and even prematurely fade your furniture, floors, and artwork. If you’ve ever lifted the corner of a throw rug, you can probably see a major difference in color of the floor underneath the rug and the floor exposed to the sun. That same effect is happening to your furniture and any artwork on the walls, and a residential window film can help minimize these effects.
On top of that, residential window films are highly energy-efficient. A solar window film can reject up to 80% of the sun’s heat, keeping your home cool in the summer. In the winter, some window films can have the opposite effect, actually helping to prevent heat from escaping through your windows.
