The Importance of UV protection: How window film can protect your skin and furniture

If you are a homeowner, you are probably looking for different ways to maintain or add value to your home. One product that can help with this is UV-blocking window film. No matter where you are, throughout the year it's going to be sunny, which can put you and your home at risk. Window film can protect your skin and furniture from the effects of the sun when you are indoors.

How does window film help?

Window film helps block up to 99% of the harmful UV rays that can cause skin cancer and fade your furniture. Although no window film can stop the fading completely, it will drastically slow down the process. Window film rejects heat exchange, reduces glare, and reduces UV rays. The Skin Cancer Foundation found that 1 in 5 Americans will have skin cancer in their lifetime. The Skin Cancer Foundation also conducted research and found that 90% of all skin cancers are associated with UV radiation from sun exposure. Window film can help reduce that number by allowing you to sit comfortably in sunlit areas all over your home.

A big reason customers get window film for their home and business is that it can help lower energy costs and eliminate hot spots. This means less heat buildup in your home. This will help reduce your electric bill by letting less heat inside your home during the summer and keeping heat inside during the winter, which overall will make your electricity bill lower.

Residential window film is generally less expensive than blinds, especially when you consider the long-term savings in energy costs and maintenance. Window film also looks more appealing than blinds. They can be customized to provide different levels of privacy, making it an ideal solution for homes located near busy streets or high traffic areas. The film can also make it more difficult for a thief to enter through a window, providing an extra level of protection for you and your home.
