You are likely well aware that this summer is a scorcher! A heatwave is sweeping the nation and in San Antonio, where the temperatures have been 90+ for days, people are starting to feel the burn. Even air conditioning is having a hard time keeping up and cooling things down as the summer sun relentlessly glares into San Antonio homes. When it gets this hot finding relief can be hard. Because the real culprit is the sun on glass heating up your entire home. Happily, window film is a solution to control summer temperatures in your San Antonio home and has many other benefits too.
Keeping Cool This Summer With Window Film On Your San Antonio Home
Window films work through different vehicles to solve issues related to the sun on your home. But solar films are designed specifically for sun and temperature control. “Spectrally selective” films work by rejecting over 90% of the sun’s infrared rays. The Infrared rays are invisible ones responsible for producing the heat that makes your San Antonio home uncomfortably hot–even with the a/c at full throttle. So when you block the UV rays with window film, the interior of your San Antonio home stays cooler. This also reduces the load on your cooling system, extending its life and lowering utility bills.
Additional Window Film Benefits For San Antonio Homes
Window film blocks the heat causing infrared rays that keep your home from truly cooling down in the hot summer heat. But it also blocks UV rays too. As it were, most window films block up to 99.9% of UV rays. This has two main benefits for San Antonio homeowners.
- Window film helps protect furnishings from the detrimental effects of the sun: Fading is an issue in any home as the sun takes its toll on your belongings. Your wood floors, upholstery, artwork stay protected when you have window film applied. So they look better and last longer.
- Window film protects you and your family against skin and eye cancers: Many cancers and other diseases of the eyes and skin are linked to sun exposure. Window film is a way to reduce your risk of getting these illnesses. It is so powerful, in fact, the Skin Cancer Foundation has recommended it as a safeguard against UV damage and corresponding cancers. That means not only will window film keep you more comfortable in your San Antioin home but safer too.
