If You Need to Reduce Glare and Harsh Light, Home Window Film and Tint Can Help!
Most people think of window film or window tinting primarily as something that helps in the Summer. However, Winter is often the time when glare and harsh light become big issues. Is there a way to reduce glare, harsh light and improve home comfort while maintaining your views? The answer is yes, but first let’s look at why this problem may be worse in the Winter.
There are 3 reasons this is the case:
- The sun is lower in the sky during these months which means that it is shining more directly into your windows versus from a more overhead position in the Summer months.
- There are no leaves on the trees to block the sun. Many homes and commercial properties have foliage in the Summer that serves to offer some shade. In the Winter, with this gone, they have to deal with glare issue that are not present at other times of the year.
- The refection of the sun off of the snow. When there is a layer of snow on the ground, it acts like a big mirror to reflect the sun’s rays. This can make any harsh light issue even worse at this time of the year as it is actually amplifying the light coming through the glass.
So, What Can Window Film Do?
The window film we offer is likely not like the picture in your head of a darkly tinted car. Technology has enabled current window films to block a great deal of glare as well as heat without restricting your view. In fact, like a high quality pair of sunglasses, the innovative technology found in window film today actually serves to enhance your views. The harsh light and glare is eliminated allowing your eyes to relax and your home or commercial space to become a more comfortable place to be.
