Does Direct Sunlight In Your Windows Cause Big Problems? What To Know

If there is one area in your home where the sun shines through and disrupts what's going on inside the house, there are a few options to consider. Sunlight can do a lot of damage to the materials in your home, like fabrics and carpeting in the space. It can also damage computer screens, televisions and other electronic devices. If you're looking to take care of the problem without  needing to install double lined or thick and heavy curtains into the space, there are a couple of alternative options.

Window Tinting

Have a tinted glaze or film put over the windows, or a film, to stop the sunlight from disrupting anything throughout the day. The window tinting is ideal because you don't have to cover the windows with anything, and you still get a lot of natural light in the space to keep it open and lit.

Window tinting is also going to help improve the energy efficiency in the space, by reducing air loss and preventing heat from getting inside the room from UV rays. This means your home is going to stay cooler when the sun beats on the windows, and you can plan to save energy all year long.

Timed Blinds  

Timed blinds are a great option to offer both privacy and to prevent sunlight during the times when the sun is entering the windows, and you don't need to have a space that is completely dark. You can set the blinds to close when the sun is directly shining through, and have the blinds opened as the sun moves and there are no more direct rays. This allows you to have the windows open for a majority of the day, and you don't have to spend your time opening and closing the blinds, or dusting and washing curtains.

If the windows are outdated and inefficient, replacing the windows with glass that is already tinted may be an easy and affordable option, and a great way to update your property. There are many ways that sunlight can affect your ability to work at the computer, watch television, and it can damage your property, so make sure you get the project completed right away. The window experts can determine how many hours that area gets sun, and help you with the tinting. If new blinds are the option you pick, look at options for the entire home if it fits your budget.   

About Me

why professional window installation is important

When I bought my parent's house off of them, the first thing that I wanted to do was remove all of the original windows form the 1950's and replace them with new, energy efficient windows. I started looking into what it was going to take to install the new windows to determine if that was the kind of project that I wanted to take on myself, or if I wanted to hire a professional window installation crew to do it for me. I found out all sorts of things that made me decide that the professional installation of replacement windows was going to be the best way to go.
