Winter is here and with the beautiful snow it brings a handful of inconveniences. Even if you are a long time winter lover, you probably don’t love the high heating bill winter can rack up. As energy costs rise, homeowners and business owners are looking for ways to make their properties more environmentally and wallet friendly. If you are looking to cut down on heating costs this winter, here are some reasons why you should consider choosing window film.
Lessen Winter Heat Loss
Window film can actually do wonders for heat retention in your home or business. Window film reduces the amount of time your heater runs by helping rooms heat up at a faster rate and then retain that heat for a longer period of time. Window film not only helps keep your home hotter in the winter, but cooler in the summer. They offer year-round efficiency and money saving opportunities. Particularly if your house or business is in a larger building with significant heating and cooling costs, this will prove invaluable. Having a well insulated and efficient home or business is key to a more sustainable and affordable way of life.
Over time, the sun’s UV rays can bleach your carpets, floors, and furniture. Window film cannot only save you money over time be lessening your energy use and heating bill but can extend the life of your carpet and furniture by years and years. Rather than having to spend time and money on replacing beloved furniture and removing prematurely aged possessions, you can enjoy it for the long haul when you choose protective window film.
Protect Your Skin
Blocking the sun’s harmful UV rays is not only beneficial to your belongings, but to your health. While we all know that a day at the beach requires sunscreen, few people consider the sun’s rays coming in through their windows day in and day out. These rays can contribute to both premature aging and numerous skin conditions. Too much exposure to the sun’s UV rays can cause skin cancer. Avoid this with window film.
