Sun Damage: Is Sunlight Doing More Harm Than Good?

Natural Lighting in Your Home

It’s no wonder that we notice fading when we lift a corner of carpeting and see the difference in floor color that has been consistently exposed to the sun’s rays and sun damage.

3M Window film applied to the interior of windows is a transparent “solar shield” that can reject up to 80% of the sun’s heat.

In summer, the home is cooler and more comfortable, so you can save on energy bills. In winter, some window films trap room heat in, for added comfort during the coldest months. All quality window films will block up to 99% of UV rays and reduce the impact of sun damage on furnishings by significantly reducing fading.

I would use them again if need be and highly recommend them to others.” -Andre S.

Benefits of Home Window Film and Tinting

Along with heat reduction, window film can also help you protect your investments. Curtains, furniture and even flooring can fall victim to the effects of the sun. One of the leading culprits in fading your valuables is ultraviolet light. A window film with a high percentage of ultraviolet light rejection would be a good choice. This is to keep those home furnishings and decorations looking their best. Many films can now block almost 99 percent of the sun’s ultraviolet rays.

Ultraviolet light can not only fade your furniture, but too much of it can affect your health. Therefore, ultraviolet rays are the reason for sunburns. They are also seen as one of the risk factors for cancer. According ­to the Report on Carcinogens released by the Department of Health and Human Services, ultraviolet radiation is a known human carcinogen [source: National Institutes of Health]. For working to prevent sun-induced skin damage, several types of window film have even been given the Skin Cancer Foundation’s Seal of Recommendation [source: The Skin Cancer Foundation].

Some window films offer another benefit in the area of safety: shatter resistance. The film’s shatter resistance comes from its ability to hold glass shards together. It acts as a barrier between the interior of the home and the glass.

Along with the safety benefits, window films can also help to reduce the glare on your television when viewing the big game. The percentage of glare reduction is usually related to the visible light transmittance. The greater the glare reduction inside the home depends on this. A window that is tinted will have lower amounts of light transmitted through the film.

A clearer film offers a more natural view from the window, while a darker film can offer more glare reduction and privacy. Darker films can also have higher values for reflectivity. Reflectivity can be beneficial when reflecting the sunlight. However, it can be less desirable for thieves when the view out of your windows at night includes a shadowed version of the room’s interior.

In addition to our experience, the staff at TriState Sun Control is highly knowledgeable. We would love to answer any questions you may have. If you would like to speak with one of our trained specialists about how window films can be applied to your home, call us now at 844-200-8224.

What To Look For In A Window Treatment Specialist

window treatment specialist

The right window treatment specialist affect more than just windows. However, finding the right ones often proves difficult. Hiring a window treatment specialist, means inviting an expert in the industry into your home or business to share their knowledge with you.  It also means entrusting them with your home, your ideas, and your vision of what you want your home to look like.  With that said, here are some important things to think about to help you take comfort in knowing how to pick the right specialist.

Find the right specialist for your project

Because window treatments come in all shapes and sizes, the expertise of each specialist, within each company, will vary. Some handle shutters and blinds, while others work primarily with fabrics. Still, others possess more knowledge about window films.  Make sure you ask about their experience and knowledge in your areas of interest.  The correct window treatment specialis will be able to advise you on the pros and cons of your interests and help you determine the best choice for your space.

Online research

Once you have decided on a window treatment specialist, look them up online. Look online for any reviews about their current or past work.  There are a number of different review sites that give feedback on window treatment specialists. Find out about their company, and how they handles any mistakes that were made or problems that arose.  Remember, that nobody can make everyone happy, so try giving the benefit of the doubt after reading through the reviews for yourself.

Do a little research on the specialist. How long have they been a window treatment specialist? What kind of training, if any, did they receive?  If they haven’t had professional training, how much experience do they have under someone that did receive training? Sometimes real life experiences far outweigh traditional training.

Warranty or Guarantee

Because window treatments are such an important part of your home décor, a warranty or guarantee might be necessary. Depending on your particular project, ask if your window treatment specialist provides a warranty on the product as well as the work that is being done. You should also ask about a money back guarantee if you are not completely satisfied. It’s important to know how do they plan to correct any unforeseen problems that may arise, before they actually do. A great window treatment specialist will most likely have a process, in writing, for covering the repairs of any damage that may come from the work they are doing.  Additionally, most businesses are insured for occasions such as this. It is always best to check before  unexpected surprises occur.

References and Examples

One of the best ways to advertise is by word of mouth. If a window treatment specialist provides excellent service, their customers are usually more than happy to spread the word.  Ask your specialist for references. If they cannot provide any, ask to at least see examples of previous work performed.  Today, portfolios are an easy reference to keep on hand; whether it’s online through a social media channel or the traditional before and after photos.

In conclusion, any window treatment specialist that you decide to use for your home project, should be able to tell you about any new products, appropriate fabrics or materials for any use, plus any special innovations and values from manufacturers and suppliers. They should also be able to add valuable suggestions and ideas to yours and give opinions on ways to create the look you desire.  Finding the right window specialist doesn’t have to be a nightmare, and by doing a little homework beforehand, you will be sure to have a pleasant experience that will leave you enjoying your home for many years to come.

Tinted Windows Can Help Save Money

Although window tinting can seem like an unimportant part of building a safe home, it is in fact vital. When you consider the long term benefits of having your windows tinted, you will realise that only does it help keep you and your family safe, but that when you consider the possible losses, it is indeed an investment that helps you save money.

How window tinting can help save energy:

Especially in the summer, one of the most pressing matters is keeping the inside of the home cold. It is also one of the most energy consuming aspects. However, if your windows are tinted, less rays can enter inside your home through your windows. As a result, the room remains cooler, and requires less artificial cooling from an energy consuming air conditioner. You will start to notice a lower energy bill and you’ll be saving a lot of money as a result.

tinted windows

How window tinting can prevent carpet fading:

When you have your windows tinted, they can prevent you from one big problem that can end up costing you a lot of money. This is because when the carpet in your home is exposed to the sun’s light through windows that aren’t tinted, it tends to fade away and lose quality. When you tint your windows, you prevent this and the inevitable high cost of having to have your carpets removed and replaced as they become more and more faded.

How window tinting can help reduce strain on your eyes:

When an excess of light can enter into a room, this creates glare. This glare can expose you to dangerous light levels and as a result, cause eye strain. It will especially hit you when you are looking at a screen, such as a television or laptop screen. The development of strain can cause a lot of health problems such as headaches and it may even end up with you needing to wear glasses. All of this can be easily avoided using window tints.

How window tinting can reduce risk of robbery:

Often time, before a home is broken into, the burglars try and look and inspect inside the home. If they find something of value inside, they will proceed to break into the home. The good news is that if you have your home’s windows tinted, you can prevent them from being able to look inside the home, and hereby reducing the risks of burglaries.

How window tinting can reduce risk of skin cancer:

One of the worst possible effects to come out of exposure to UV Rays is increased risk of cancer, particularly skin cancers. Once you make the investment and install tinted glass inside your home, you can actually reduce the risk of this happening at all. Not only is this for the benefit of you and your family, but you’re actually saving yourself a lot of money. Cancer treatment is as costly as it is difficult, and it can cost you upwards of thousands of dollars.

Although in short term, installing window tints may seem like a huge investment, it’s actually saving you lots of money and keeping you safe at the same time.
