In a day and age where the sun and heat in Dallas are more frequent and powerful than ever, blocking UV rays streaming into your home is a “must-do”. Of course, some blinds and curtains can block out the sun some-what effectively. However, these only take care of part of the problem and only partially at that. The fact of the matter is that UV radiation on windows seeps through and in between and curtains and blinds do nothing to battle solar heat gains (an expensive side-effect of UV radiation. For a thorough solution to UV radiation coming through your Dallas home’s windows–the best defense is UV blocking Window Film. Read below to find out how it works.
Window Film Protects Skin and Eyes From UV Radiation
Our skin and eyes are drastically affected negatively by UV radiation. It is known to cause blurred vision, headaches, and much, much worse–cancers of the skin and eyes. This is why UV blocking window films that block 99.9% of the harmful UV radiation beaming into your Dallas home, are one of the more effective ways to protect you and your family from UV harm.
Window Film Protects Home Furnishings
Just like human skin is susceptible to UV radiation through your Dallas home’s windows, so too are the furnishings and finishes in your home. Upholstery and wood floors will fade if left under the unchecked rays of the sun and curtains and blinds do little to help, plus, block views. UV blocking window film, on the other hand, protects your furnishings from the UV radiation that will lead to their untimely end while still allowing in the harmless natural light of the sun!
Window Film Reduces UV Heat Gain on Home Windows
As mentioned, curtains and blinds do nothing to battle solar heat gain on your Dallas home windows. This means hot air transfers from outside to the indoors. When UV radiation heats up your home, your HVAC needs to work harder to cool it. This leads to higher utility bills and costly repairs to HVAC units. WIndow film is a cost-effective way to control solar heat gains and save yourself time and money in repairs.
