Spring is Here! Sunshine facts and benefits of Window Film

Spring is Here!  Sunshine facts and benefits of Window Film | Solar Window Film | Scoop.it
Evolution Window Films's insight:

SPRING is here! 

 

Flowers coming up in the garden, birds singing, neighbors are out, cars getting washed in driveways, smiles a plenty...and days getting longer.  Open up the curtains and let the sunshine in!  

 

We all crave the sunshine... why?  Research has shown that sunshine improves our physical and mental well-being

 

 "The scientists at the U.S. Department of Energy's Brookhaven National Laboratory and colleagues at Norway's Institute for Cancer Research in Oslo, say the health benefits from some sun exposure are far larger than the skin cancer risk." [6] 

 

BUT, research also shows that there are physical risks when exposed to too much sun, even sun coming through your windows. 

 

"Our knowledge of the dangers associated with the sun's longer-wave UVA rays has grown significantly over the last few decades," said Perry Robins, MD, President, The Skin Cancer Foundation.

 

"We now know that UVA radiation can penetrate windows to reach the skin, accelerating skin aging." [1]  

 

Open your curtains and enjoy the sunshine!  With little or no visible change to your windows, professionally installed solar window film offers a solution and is recommended  the Skin Cancer Foundation [1] 

 

Benefits of Window Film

 

Stops more than 80% of solar energy - this saves money on your air conditioning bill in the hot summer months

 

Reduces glare - even when the sun drops low in the sky during sunset or reflects off the lake in the summer.

 

Increased UV protection - rejecting up to 99% UV rays.  Not only will this protect you and your family, but also protect your home furnishings, drapes and artwork from fading and discolouring.

 

"It (solar window film) reflects ultraviolet light away from the window while letting visible light through. This type of film brightens the room --- reducing the need for indoor lighting --- while keeping out the passive solar heat gains that raise the temperature." [5] 

 

So let the sunshine into your lives this Spring & Summer!  Reduce your exposure to UV rays, increase energy savings and enjoy the view through your windows. Call Evolution Window Films and get your free estimate today for your home, office or retail space.
