It’s time to get your home ready for summer and, of course, we’re going to talk about window film. We’re also going to add some tips for saving energy and creating a more comfortable home this summer.
Why Choose Window Film for Summer?
There are at least 3 reasons to choose window film for your home this summer. For this post, we are going to focus on energy conservation, preventing UVA fading, and privacy. Since more of us are staying at home, we thought these 3 reasons should be at the top of your list for choosing window film or window tint.
First, let’s talk about energy conservation. When it comes to saving energy, window film is a great choice. It can be a part of an energy-saving strategy, not just for summer, but for the entire year. How does window film help you to save money on your energy bills?
Window film helps to keep your home cool by protecting it from the sun’s heat. This can result in great savings on your energy bill, as your air conditioner won’t have to work so hard to heat your home. Window tint can also help to eliminate those pesky hot spots that can happen when a room is not cooled evenly.
The second way that window film can help you in the summer months is fade protection. UVA rays can have a devastating effect on your furnishings, including art, carpets, curtains, and furniture. Let’s face it, we love the amount of sunlight we get in the San Francisco Bay Area. From Napa to San Jose, those beautiful sunny days are a gift. What’s not a gift is how the sun can damage your stuff! Window film filters up to 99% of those damaging rays, which means your furnishings will last longer without fading.
We should also mention that those same UVA rays that can damage material goods can also damage our skin. Window film makes sure that you and your family get to enjoy the sunlight without the damage.
Lastly, window tint can offer you a layer of privacy that is very welcome for Bay Area homeowners. Window film comes in a variety of shades. For instance, frosted window film looks great in bathrooms. It allows light to enter but keeps prying eyes out. 3M Prestige 70, a customer favorite, is our go-to film for adding privacy without compromising on the view.
