We’re sure you’ve heard of “snow blindness” before. You’ve probably even experienced it before. On a bright day with snow on the ground, the sunlight reflecting off the snow can truly feel blinding. Outdoors, the solution is simple—just put on a good pair of glasses. But what can you do about snow glare in your home?
Why Snow Glare Is a Problem
Some people might not feel as though snow glare is too much of a problem in their home. We’d like to explain why it might be a bigger issue than you suppose.
It’s true: snow blindness isn’t likely to happen just from a brief look out your window. But the glare coming off the snow can still be obnoxious. As our society has grown to place an increased emphasis on teleworking, many people have a designated workspace by a window in their home. During the snowy season, you might find snow glare so obnoxious that you have to close the blinds.
Excess glare coming through your windows can hamper productivity in the home and workplace alike. Depending on the climate you live in, glare may be the most pronounced when there’s snow on the ground. It can make the atmosphere in your home feel gray and washed out. It could even cause your furniture to fade faster.
But surely there’s a better solution than closing the blinds, right?
Home Window Tinting Can Help
Thankfully, you can enjoy the pleasures of winter light without dealing with the issues that come with snow glare. Window tinting for your home is the perfect solution. Window tinting will cut back on the blinding quality that snow glare can have, while still allowing you to enjoy glancing out your window while you work from home or relax.
Window tinting has more benefits than just cutting down on snow glare, too. If you’re like most Maryland homeowners, you dislike seeing your energy bill go up in the summer and winter months. Home window tinting can help curb this effect by keeping cool air in your home in the summer, and out in the winter.
This year, Maryland homeowners have seen more snow than in years past. This could be a sign of things to come in subsequent years. If you’d like to eliminate the threat of snow glare, American Solar Tinting would be delighted to install window tinting in your home!
