Window Film Keeps Your Home Cool Without Drawing the Blinds

Most of us love the sun, and what better feeling than to have its light and warmth streaming into our homes? But it’s possible to have too much of a good thing. In summer, or even through the winter in some climate zones, windows which face directly towards the sun can make a home unbearably hot.

Trying to keep your house cool by turning up the air-conditioning is expensive and will do nothing to protect your furniture and flooring from the damaging rays of the sun. Of course, you could always close the shutters, but who really wants to sit in the dark on a bright sunny day?

The Problem with Traditional Window Films

Until recently, fitting film to windows offered at best only a limited solution to these problems and was regarded primarily as an option for vehicles, or for homeowners who wanted to have more privacy within their homes. These traditional tinted window films excluded a certain amount of heat, but also a great deal of light, and were visually unattractive from both inside and out.

Fortunately, today’s technology has largely eliminated these drawbacks, and invisible modern window film now provides great benefits for homeowners who want to enjoy the sun in comfort.

The Modern Window Film Solution

Many different films are now available, with a wide range of tints, which can be customized to suit almost any requirement. At Glamour Glaze, we offer many different window film options, including MADICO’s “daylight redirecting film”, for example. It is specially designed to direct the sun’s rays onto the ceiling; enabling a room to get the maximum possible, glare-free, natural light while diverting heat away from the floor and furnishings, and preventing the hot spots which can make some rooms almost unusable. In this way, even the hottest rooms in your home can be made a delight to use.

And whether your main priority is to reduce heat, or to continue enjoying the view from your windows without annoying glare, there is sure to be a tint or a combination of them, that can work for you. You can choose tints to stress heat control, sun control or enhanced privacy, and any of these options will not only significantly reduce the amount of heat entering the room but also provide other significant benefits:

Protection from the Sun –Whether you’re feeling their heat or not, the sun’s ultra-violet (UV) rays can be very damaging to furnishings and floorings. More importantly, glass alone will not completely protect your skin from health-threatening and aging sun damage. Sunlight refracting on glass can also cause a bright glare in a room. Not only does this spoil the external views, but it’s also potentially damaging to your eyes and can make TVs, computer screens and pictures very difficult to see. Modern window films, however, will block 99% of UV rays and eliminate glare without reducing light quality.

Lower Energy Cost – Depending on the type of tint, they can also block up to 78% of the sun’s heat. Typically this means a reduction of around 30% in the energy used by the cooling system.

Skin Cancer Protection with Window Film

Outdoor sun protection with an arsenal of broad-spectrum sunscreen, UV protective sunglasses, and a wide-brimmed sun hat is essential to protect you and your family from the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays (UVR). While we understand that safety precautions are important for outdoor sun exposure, what about indoor protection? You may not realize it, but the sunshine streaming through your home’s windows can be just as damaging as direct outdoor exposure.

Ultraviolet radiation is sneaky, it can bounce off surfaces and penetrate glass to find you. Unprotected UVR exposure indoors will contribute to daily exposure accumulation, leaving you and your family vulnerable to skin damage, photoaging, eye damage, and skin cancer. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends UV-blocking window film for solar reflection as a cost-effective solution to protect your family and your home from indoor ultraviolet exposure.
