If you’re like us, you value your home and possessions; after all, you spend your hard-earned money to purchase and maintain them. Furniture, window treatments, art work, decorations, carpet and flooring are expensive; not to mention the price of your home! Like us, you probably want to safeguard your investment as much as possible. Residential window film is one way to do that because it offers increased privacy, protection from fading, and saves on energy costs because it provides heat rejection. Heat rejection keeps the sun’s heat from entering through the window film and into your home, which keeps your home cooler.
Ultraviolet rays from the sun cause 40% of fading and are the major single cause of fading. It’s important to note that window film delivers home protection in two ways – by blocking ultraviolet rays and providing heat rejection. Window film does not protect against the other sources of fading – visible light, heat, and wear and tear from normal use.
A specific breakdown of the causes of fading follows:
- 40% UV rays
- 25% visible light
- 25% heat
- 10% normal use wear and tear
