Does Window Film Kill House Plants In Denver Properties?

Whenever you make investments in your home, it is important to do the research needed for proper maintenance and care. For individuals interested in investing in energy-saving or UV protection window film, there are some general considerations to think about. While these films are available in optically-clear options, the more effective energy-saving ones will have a darker tint or reflective property. In addition to aesthetics, there may be some other general questions that you’re concerned with. One of the most frequently asked questions about general window film is– does window film kill house plants in Denver properties?

The Benefits of Window Film for House Plants In Your Denver Property

Solar control window films including energy-efficiency and UV protection options only block harmful UV rays. That means that window film does not block the red and blue rays that house plants require to grow. Some house plants actually thrive and do better once window film is installed. These plants are often varieties that require less light or varieties that are delicate due to the stabilized temperature you’re providing. Window film also eliminates heat gain in windows which can be harmful to plants. Installing window film won’t kill your houseplants but it may take a few days in order for them to adjust. Since window film maintains natural sunlight transmissions and only blocks UV rays, window film should only encourage plant growth. The red and blue rays needed for plant growth are not obstructed from energy-saving or UV blocking window film.
