It is estimated that Portland only gets around 144 sunny days per year, which means most of the time, the weather is pretty dreary and gloomy. Make the most of the Oregonian climate with window film to take your mind off the weather, and bring utility to your home. Don’t cover your windows up with heavy treatments; use window film and catch the natural sun whenever it happens to peek out!
Summertime in the Portland area is unlike any other region in the country. With clouds parted and rain subsided, the Pacific Northwest offers incredible outdoor activities, music scenes, cultural events and of course, some of the best food you’ll find anywhere. However, we perhaps pay for these summers with uncomfortably high temperatures.
It seems like most homes struggle with problem areas that receive too much direct sunlight and become unbearably hot. Big windows are beautiful additions to any home but they bring sun exposure and higher temperatures indoors. You could pump up your air conditioning, but that may cause a drastic spike in your utility bills and make other parts other parts of the home freezing.
And what if you don’t have air conditioning at all? It can feel more like an oven than a home when the sunshine bearing down.
No A/C? Cool down with window film
Panorama solar films are optical-grade films that provide protection against the sun’s rays and heat. Unlike other tinting methods, these films won’t require major window replacements or even darken your windows like those on a limousine. Instead, these films can be applied in light tones so that they are hardly noticeable, even when examined close up.
What’s the best part of using films? Panorama solar films can reject as much as 70% of the sun’s heat that’s penetrating windows. This way, you can cool down the hottest rooms in your house without spending hundreds of dollars in energy bills and putting the air conditioner on full blast. Solar films reduce cooling costs by up to 30% and will save you money on your utility bill month over month.
Other benefits of window film
Avoid UV rays: Panorama solar films block 99% of harmful UV rays that enter through the home’s windows. Protecting your furnishings from these rays will prevent those colors from fading over time as well as keep your family out of harm’s way by blocking their exposure to dangerous UV rays.
Control glare: Don’t get blinded by the light when entering a room that’s in direct path of the sun’s rays. Glare worsens the quality of screens and monitors, and can become a big headache while entertaining or even relaxing around the home.
Whether you’d like to beat the summer heat or protect your home’s contents from damaging UV rays, solar films are a cost-effective way to make the home a more comfortable place to live.
