Applying film to your windows is a great option for most homeowners to protect their furnishings from fading in their home. It’s an option that is cost-effective and doesn’t require regular maintenance. For those reasons, it’s perfect for the homeowner on a budget and the busy homeowner.
Window film is a thin laminate that can be installed on the inside or outside of your home. Today’s film improves the energy efficiency of your home and blocks the UV rays.
The best part is that window film doesn’t restrict your view or decrease the amount of light coming in to your home. You’ll get the benefit of natural light without the damage that can come from UV rays.
3 ways to prevent fading
1. Awareness. The easiest method to save our furniture is to keep your pieces away from direct sunlight. Place your furniture, especially the more valuable ones, in shaded areas of the room, away from direct sunlight from windows, and skylights.
2. Window Treatments. Hanging blinds, and shutters, or use shades and awnings to block out the sun.
Among all these, UV blocker blinds are one of the most effective and versatile way to get rid of all the problems and offer additional benefits as well. There are various options to choose from but picking up the right one can be tricky.
3. Apply window film.
Window films are a great way to handle sun and natural light in your home. High-quality solar window films can reflect up to 99.9 percent of the sun's UV rays. Window films are installed on the inside of your windows to create a protective layer that filters out harmful rays. They will not restrict your view, so they're really an effective tool. You can save on the energy bill by adding a solar window film. There is also a percentage of heat that cuts down on fading rays. The higher percentage of heat reduction of the window film product, the more fading rays are reduced.
Solar film is a specifically designed film which is carefully placed on your windows to protect the interior of the home, while factory tinted windows don’t offer the same protection.
The rays of the sun are radiation and radiation destroys things. So anything and everything sitting under the unchecked rays are being degraded each day. Given enough time, harmful UV, UVA and UVB rays will break down almost any substance or material.
