We offer a great amount of insider information about the various properties and benefits of UV window film on this site. Our initiative is to help the residents of Colorado Springs and in the Pikes Peak region understand how our window film products can directly benefit them, their home and their peace of mind.
What is the #1 Benefit of Installing UV Home Window Film?
As experts in the industry, it is hard to identify the top benefit of UV home window film, because every homeowner and every home environment is different. That being said, every one of our customers enjoys ALL the benefits of adding UV window film, not just the benefit that was important to them! Minimizing the ultra violet light that enters our homes using UV window film is not usually at the top of the priority list. Our customers call us because in the morning, their Eastern facing windows are so bright and blinding, they can’t enjoy that part of their house. Or they look into installing window film because in the afternoon, their Western facing windows are so hot, it makes their home uncomfortable and spikes their cooling bills.
While residential window film addresses both the glare and excessive heat gain quite effectively, our customers are also finding greater appreciation for window film’s ability to block out 99%+ of the sun’s ultra violet light that leads to UV fading.
Let’s Look at UV Block Window Film Stats
Our most popular UV block window film product by far is from our neutral line of residential window films. These are UV window films that block 99% of UV light and have a natural tint or shade to them while delivering impressive performance results. Our neutral UV window films range from 21% light transmission (pretty dark) to 69% light transmission (pretty light) that reject solar energy gain by 77% down to 28% respectively. These numbers translate into total summer solar heat gain reduction from 16% reduction to a whopping 73% reduction. Download our specification sheet by clicking here.
These are results you can feel instantly and will stop UV fading! If you want to see product samples and put them in your window to get an idea of how they will look, please contact us to schedule your complementary in-home consultation.
To bring this back to UV window protection for homes and why blocking UV should be an important factor to homeowners. Our homes are meant to provide shelter, safety, comfort and security. It is the last place we think we will encounter something that will cause us harm, we do our very best to keep harmful things out of our homes. But UV is an invisible threat that we often don’t think about… we love our Colorado sunshine; how can it be bad for us?? It’s not all bad, just the harmful UV, so eliminate that using UV window films. All of the window films Colorado Sun Control offers, regardless of shade, performance level, darkness, etc., reject at least 99% of harmful ultra violet light (some block more) and virtually eliminate UV fading and damage.
Window Film to Block UV Rays
Adding window film to block UV rays should be an equally important benefit to homeowners in Southern Colorado as the heat rejection and glare reduction because UV is a contributing cause to skin cancers, it’s what causes sunburns, cataracts and other eye problems. Harmful UV is what causes fading and sun damage to fabrics, art, flooring and more.
