No matter what you try to do to protect your flooring and furniture from harsh UV rays, having UV blocking windows is the best possible way of keeping your possessions safe from ultra violet sunlight. Over time, your furniture, flooring, and drapes will start to fade in color because of the sunlight coming through your windows.
In order to stop this fading, you can either cover your windows with tin foil and tape, or you can purchase UV blocking windows. These windows will allow you to enjoy the light in the daytime and still protect your belongings from any damage.
There are window tints available that you can install on your windows that will help keep the ultra violet light out. These DYI kits give you everything you need to make your windows efficient and lets you save money over having to completely replace your windows. Using window tint will save you money and accomplish the same protection that a whole window replacement can accomplish. The only issue with window tint is that you will have to replace it over time as it will start to lose its adhesive quality to the window itself.
If you want to replace the glass but not the entire window, you can hire a window company to come in and change the glass out. They will remove the frame work holding the glass in and put in UV rated replacement glass in its place. This is a cheaper way of getting new UV glass without having to worry about having someone come out and completely replace your windows.
Not only can you get this glass for your windows, but many companies are offering this UV blocking glass for doors as well. The high energy efficiency of these UV blocking windows are fast becoming the number one way of reducing energy bills and making your home look great.
Not only will you reduce your energy bills but you will save your furniture and other possessions from losing their color and having to replace them over time as well. You might also be happy with the fact that purchasing these types of windows will qualify for government energy saving tax credits as well, saving you more.
