This summer is a hot one with a heatwave sweeping the nation! Here in Denver, we feel it as much as any place with temperatures in the 90s for days in a row. People are really starting to feel the heat and even with air conditioning homes are still running hot. This is because of the sun. It is relentless and penetrates deep into Denver homes heating the area around any windows up and reducing the efficacy of A/C. Solar heat gain is the main culprit behind hot and/or uneven temperatures in homes but is something that is easily controlled with window film. So when looking to beat the summer heat the solution is window film to control solar heat gain on your Denver home and has many other benefits too.
Keeping Cool This Summer With Window Film On Your Denver Home
Different window films work in different ways depending on the issue they are solving. But solar films are designed with sun control as their main function and keeping temperatures under control as a result. “Spectrally selective” films reject 90% of the sun’s infrared rays. This means your home stays significantly cooler because Infrared rays are the ones responsible for producing the heat. When you block the infrared rays with window film, the interior of your Denver home are cooler and more comfortable. Also, the load on your cooling systems is lessened, reducing costly repairs and lowering utility bills.
Additional Window Film Benefits For Denver Homes
While window film blocks infrared red rays that heat up your home, it also blocks UV rays too. In fact, most window films block up to 99.9% of UV rays which has two key benefits for Denver homeowners.
- Window film helps protect furnishings from the detrimental effects of the sun: Fading of furnishings and floors is a problem in any home, especially here in Denver where the high altitude magnifies the sun. This type of sun exposure takes its toll on your belongings: wood floors, upholstery, furniture, and artwork. When you have window film installed, which blocks the detrimental UV rays, the furnishings you value stay protected– looking better and lasting longer.
- Window film protects you and your family against skin and eye cancers: Sun exposure is strongly linked to many cancers and other diseases of the eyes and skin. So using window film is a smart way to reduce your risk of getting these illnesses. It is so powerful that the Skin Cancer Foundation recommends it as a safeguard against some cancers and other “sun-related” illnesses. This means not only will window film keep your Denver household cooler and more comfortable in the summer but healthier too!
