With the summer months fast approaching, now is the time to start thinking about how best to cool your home. Don't wait for a repeat of the 2018 Seattle heatwave, in which we saw weeks of 90+ degree weather, and finding a fan or air conditioner for sale was about as likely as having lunch with Bigfoot at the Space Needle.
It is important to note that fans and air conditioning put more stress on the environment, by increasing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and by burning fossil fuels, as well as deletion of our ozone layer by air conditioners, built before 2010.
If you've tried other environmentally friendly options and found they're just not doing the job consider heat blocking window films. Heat blocking window tint you can cut your home or office's need for mechanical cooling systems dramatically.
Residential or commercial solar control film can greatly reduce the heat that passes through a window during the day. Window film blocks heat effectively and can be used to help your home retain heat in the winter, too. These films improve energy savings by blocking up to 80% of the sun's heat and also block UV rays that fade furniture and flooring.

Heat control window film designed to reduce heat gain does so by reflecting infrared heat. Our solar control films also absorb UV rays to help protect the skin of occupants and reduce the fading of upholstery, furniture, and flooring.
Bottom Line: Our window films absorb UV rays and reflect infrared rays, while visible light continues to pass through uninhibited. If you would like a quote for your home or office, contact us today.
