Summer is officially over, the kids are back in school and you know cooler temperatures are right around the corner. Whatever the reason, Fall is a great time to take on a home improvement project. After reading an article in the Huffington Post by Sam Cohen titled “Build Superior Homes By Installing Window Films — Valid Reasons To Add Them To Your Windows“, I wanted to summarize four reasons he lists in the article that you might consider window film as a great choice for your next home improvement project.
What are the Actual Benefits of Installing Window Film on Your Home?
- Creates a Comfortable Environment: After window films are installed in your home, they create a comfortable environment by reducing the heat coming through the glass and making your place a lot cooler. They also block irritating glare that can make some rooms uncomfortable at certain times of the day.
- Protects from UV rays: Window films can block 99% of the ultraviolet rays of the sun that enters your home. This is important because UV is a major contributor to fading. So, as the window film blocks the UV rays, it also protects upholstery, furnishings, tapestries, paintings from discoloration and fading.
- Enhances Security and Safety: Window films also help hold the glass together in the event of breaking of a window. Whether due to an attempted break-in, storm or an accident, the window film can act as a barrier to entry and protection from injury from glass shards
- Saves Energy: Window film not can improve the appearance of your home, it can also plays a huge role in saving on energy costs. Depending on what type of film you choose, you can save significantly on your energy costs.
