The sun’s rays are more powerful in fall and winter, causing increased problems with glare and solar heat gain. This can make it difficult to concentrate or even render some rooms unusable. The best solution for these winter sun issues is window film. It blocks the harmful rays of the sun while still allowing sunlight into the room. Window film is cost-effective and quick to have applied, plus it comes with numerous other benefits like reducing energy costs.

Window Tinting Controls Harmful UV Rays

In winter, the sun hangs lower in the sky. This results in more concentrated sunlight coming through south-facing windows. For some rooms, this change is so extreme that they can’t be used at all during winter months. The best way to mitigate this issue is with solar control film on your windows. Solar control film blocks 99% of the sun’s rays, making it a valuable tool for San Francisco dwellers who want to make use of their home year-round.

Window Tinting Makes San Francisco Homes More Comfortable 

Window film helps to keep San Francisco homes more comfortable in several ways. For example, it blocks solar heat gain and glare, making it easier to use screens indoors. Additionally, window film improves your health by blocking UV exposure and reducing eye strain.

Window Tinting Reduces Wood Fading

Homeowners usually keep their blinds open during winter which then leads to the faster fading of wood floors and furniture. To avoid quick wear and tear of your home’s delicate features, window tinting is an excellent option for protection. It not only secures wood flooring but also fabrics and artwork from harmful UV rays.
