Clear Cut Glass: 3 Steps to reduce UV rays in your home
Jason Mariner, owner of Clear Cut Glass shares 3 Steps to reduce UV rays in your home.
Arizona is known for relentless summer heat. One thing that many people don’t think about is how the sun’s UV rays can penetrate through windows and ruin furniture, flooring, and just about anything else. It is important to protect your belongings from the hot Arizona sun.
There are three easy and cost effective ways you can reduce the impact that UV rays have on the inside of your home:
Tint your windows
Tinting your home windows that receive the most direct sunlight with even the lightest tint will help reduce the amount of UV rays introduced into a room. Not only does this reduce the destructive UV rays, but it also reduces energy loss. Windows that are out of reach can be tinted darker to help reduce UV rays without having to install blinds or curtains.
Replace your window screens
Replacing your screens will allow for your new screens to act as another shield for your belongings. Sun screens come in several different types and styles. Some keep bugs out offering minimal window coverage, while others offer UV protection and cover the entire window. Depending on the coverage you are looking for will determine the type of screen that needs to be installed.
Install new blinds or curtains
Simply installing blinds or curtains in a room will also help stop the harsh UV rays from coming through the window. Blinds can block up to 50% of energy escaping through a window and are an easy solution for home owners who want to do it themselves.
