The cloudy gloom of winter puts people under the impression that sun protection can be disregarded until spring. However, just because the sky is grey, doesn’t mean UV rays aren’t invading your home. Since the air is cold and we can’t feel the hot reminder of the sun’s damaging rays, many forget that UV rays are an all-year thing. Don’t neglect your indoors this winter; make sure you’re protected with residential window tinting. Read more to learn why residential window tinting is still essential during the darker months, and how you can get protected from UV rays in your home.
Residential Window Tinting Keeps Your Energy Bill Low
Even in the winter. On those sunny snow days where sunlight is bouncing off the snow and into your home, those rays can heat the interior of your home. Along with your already-running heating system, it can cause temperature fluctuations, which put more strain on the system, resulting in an increase on your energy bill.
Window tinting keeps those rays out, helping to prevent room temperature variances. Solar window film applied acts as a shield to reject up to 80% of the sun’s heat. Don’t put your home’s heating and cooling system under stress—utilize window tinting to block those rays.
Furniture and Floor Protection
Because of snow’s high albedo, or ability to refract the sun’s rays, it can amplify the amount of these rays that enter your home. This puts the risk on par with summer when it comes to damage and fading that can occur to your furniture and floors inside the home. When residential window tinting is applied, it drastically reduces the amount of UV rays that invade the home and causing fading and wear to furniture and floors.
Carpets, furniture, artwork, antiques and wooden floors are all vulnerable to fading and discoloration from UV rays. Take care of your valuable belongings and furniture by protecting them from damaging UV rays. It’s well worth the peace of mind to take these precautions.
