When we reach out to people who requested information about window film in the winter months, we seem to get a lot of the same responses. That response is “I’ll just wait until summer comes back around and then I’ll get it done.” But why wait? Is summer a better time to get tint done? Why do people only associate tint with hot summer months?
The truth is the sun is an issue year round. No matter where you live whether there’s snow on the ground or it’s a blistering hot summer day, the sun is persistent. The suns energy is coming through your windows with full force blinding your eyes and disrupting the comfortable temperature you seek in your home or office. Yes the summer brings heat that is a major concern but during the winter months the sun is lower in the sky causing other issues for everyone. One huge problem is glare.
Glare occurs when there’s a drastic contrast between light and dark. In the winter the sky is darker because the sun tends to be lower increasing the chances of sun glare. To make matters worse, our glass windows are highly reflective redirecting that bright sunlight right into the room and into our eyes. Couple that with the potential for ice build up outside or snow and you have a real problem. Sun loves to bounce off of shiny reflective services and find its way inside. Glare can be a nuisance when you’re trying to watch television or work on a computer screen. It makes it hard to see and concentrate. It’s a big big distraction. For offices you don’t want distractions effecting your productivity and at home you don’t want it to take away from your ability to enjoy your space. Glare can also be dangerous and painful for our eyes.
On top of problems with glare, our bare windows put us at risk of battling for a comfortable temperature inside. During the winter months we are always trying to stay warm. Cranking the heat up and snuggling under blankets are exactly what I imagine we all do when it’s frigid outside. Now the problem with glass windows is they are an area of vulnerability in your home or office. Since they lack the insulation that your walls have, warm air is able to escape right out of your windows and cold air can come right in. Basically you are trying to fill a bucket of water with a hole in the bucket. Seems pointless right? So what can we do?
Solar window films are a solution that solve both of these problems. Window films offer glare control and help to eliminate that horrible blinding light that’s in the way of your favorite tv show. Solar films also secure your glass and help to insulate your windows to prevent the cool air from entering and the warm air from exiting your space. By keeping the room more controlled, your heating unit will not be working as hard or running as long which ultimately saves you money. So this winter pick up that phone and call us at 6237804950. Don’t wait until the summer when you can get the benefit of solar film today.
