How many times have you seen a house that has aluminum foil in all the windows? It’s an old trick used to reflect the sun’s heat and keep the house cooler; but, be honest, it looks terrible. It also keeps your house dark and gloomy inside.
Instead of aluminum foil, take a look at the new types of window film. This is a very do-it-yourself-friendly project, and almost all brands of window film today will block 99% of the sun’s UV rays, which will mean you don’t have to worry about fading of furniture or flooring. Plus, you can reflect the solar heat and still enjoy the view.
And by reducing the heat gain, your air conditioning system will work less to keep your home comfortable, which also means you’re saving energy dollars every month.
