If you’re like most people, you enjoy spending time in the sun. The sunlight feels good on your skin, boosts your mood, and makes you feel energized. So of course you want to pull back the curtains in your home from time to time and let the light in.

But along with the sunlight comes heat. And being hot and uncomfortable in your own home is less than ideal. But that doesn’t mean you have to shut out the sun completely. By installing window film for your Salt Lake City home, you can block heat without blocking light. And no, it’s not going to make your home any less brighter than before.

Not All Window Films Are Tinted

The belief that window film blocks light is a common misconception. Most people think that all window films look like the stuff on their car and have a blackish tint. But this is actually far from true. Window films come in tons of different styles.

How It Controls Heat & Glare

Most residential window films aren’t even tinted at all. Instead, they’re made up of dozens of thin sheets of polyester that reflect certain light frequencies. Wave lengths that cause heat are blocked while wave lengths that create light are allowed to transmit through. This gives them the ability to control heat without diminishing the brightness of your home.
