When it comes to the windows in your home, you probably only really notice them when they are dirty and need to be cleaned. Otherwise, they’re mostly out of sight, out of mind. But your windows play a crucial role in protecting your home and family from outside factors. Take, for example, the role your windows play in keeping your home cool. Dual pane technology has made modern windows more efficient at repelling heat and sealing in the cool air, but what if we told you they could be even better?
Solar film is a simple and effective way of protecting your home from various factors, and it can help you save money in the process. Want to learn more? Below are the top three benefits of investing in solar film installation in Birmingham, AL for your home.
We’ll start with the obvious here—solar film reduces the effects of the sun without turning your house into a dark, closed-off cave. Some companies push films that exponentially darken your home by cutting off natural light. Our film, on the other hand, offers protection from the sun’s harsh rays without being too extreme. Glare can be a pain when it comes to watching TV, working on the computer or even just chatting with guests during the day. There is no reason you should have to pull the blinds shut to enjoy your living space and company.
Protecting your valuables
Over time, things like furniture, rugs and wall art can suffer sun bleaching, an irreversible process that strips color from fabric, textiles and things like paintings and photographs. By adding solar film to your home’s windows, you are cutting down on the damaging rays and protecting your belongings.
Additionally, because solar film also adds a tint to the windows, it makes it much more difficult for burglars to see into your home and cuts down on the likelihood that a criminal will try to break in. If the bad guys can’t see in, there is a good chance they will move on rather than gambling that there isn’t a big dog waiting for them on the other side of the glass.
Like we just mentioned, the tinted solar film we offer gives our customers an expanded sense of privacy. Maybe you have a nosy neighbor, or you just like to walk around in your robe on the weekend without judgment from the outside world. With quality home window solar film, you won’t have to worry about people peering in during the daytime hours, and you won’t have to pull the shades either. Because solar film is a protective and reflective film, it bounces harsh light and unwanted eyes away from your home.
Why should you consider solar film? While window treatments like blinds and drapes do a good job blocking out harmful UV light, they can make the inside of your house way too dark—the film doesn’t.
