Your Nashville Home Furnishings Need Protection From UV Rays: Here is why

As spring takes over and summer approaches the lovely sun begins to shine again! And while the warm sun feels fantastic shining through your windows, it is only a matter of time before this same sun on those same windows will get downright uncomfortable and hot. Beyond that, the sun shining brightly into your Nashville home has a pretty significant downside–the harmful UV rays and radiation the bring. You are surely aware that UV rays are bad for human skin but did you know– the sun also causes damage to every item in your home big and small? That’s right, UV rays cause furniture, flooring, upholstery, and artwork to either fade or deteriorate–at a rapid clip. And, thankfully, just like there is sunblock for your skin, there is a powerful way to block the sun from damaging your home too–window tinting.

How Window Film Works To Protect Your Nashville Home Furnishings From The Sun

Fading, discoloration and eventually the deterioration of wood, fabric, or paint itself are the direct result of sunlight taking a toll on your home furnishings. The three main components of sunlight that destroy your home furnishings are –UVA rays, UVB rays, and infrared radiation. You may think that the sun doesn’t shine long or bright enough in Nashville for this to be a problem but– even when it is overcast UV rays are present. This is why you need protection from the sun that works 365 days a year. The only viable the solution is window film. It blocks 99.9% of rays and radiation. While Low-E windows, for example, only block about 85%. Windows like this, while effective at keeping heat in, leave a lot to be desired when it comes to protecting from detrimental solar radiation i.e. UV, UVA, and UVB rays. The best part about using a quality window film like Vista, 3M or Llumar, is there is no loss of clarity or view but still 99.9% protection from the sun’s rays. In fact, window film works to improves views because it stops the glare that would normally render these windows useless to look out of.
