How Window Film Can Defend Your Denver Home from UV Radiation

In an era where the sun and heat in Denver are more powerful than ever before, blocking UV rays beaming into your home is an absolute must. Of course, you could use blinds and/or curtains that are somewhat effective but these only take care of part of the problem. The fact of the matter is that UV radiation still seeps through and in between and does nothing to battle solar head gains (an expensive side-effect of UV radiation). For an all-around solution to UV radiation coming through your Denver home’s windows–the best defense is UV blocking Window Film. Find out how it works below.

Window Film Protects Skin and Eyes From UV Radiation

Our skin and eyes are susceptible to harm by UV radiation. It is proven to cause blurred vision, headaches, and worse–cancers of the skin and eyes. This is why UV blocking window films that block 99.9% of the harmful UV radiation coming through the windows of your Denver home are one of the most effective ways to protect you and your family from harm.

Window Film Protects Home Furnishings

Just like human skin is harmed by UV radiation through glass–so too are the furnishings and finishes in your home. Upholstery, artwork, and wood floors will fade if left under the unchecked rays of the sun. Curtains and blinds do little to help and also obscure views. UV blocking window film, on the other hand, acts as a barrier to your furnishings protecting it from UV radiation that will lead to degradation, while still allowing in plenty of natural light.

Window Film Reduces UV Heat Gain on Home Windows

As mentioned, curtains and blinds are not able to stop solar heat gain on glass. This means hot air transfers into your Denver home. When UV radiation gets in it heats up your home and your HVAC needs to work harder to cool it. Ultimately this means higher utility bills and costly repairs to HVAC units–something no homeowner wants. Window film is a cost-effective way to stay ahead of these high bills by controlling solar heat gain and saving your time and money in repairs.
