Do More With Solar Energy
Canada is realizing its potential as a solar power generating powerhouse. As panels increase in efficiency and decrease in price, homes in all neighbourhoods are equipping themselves with panels to help offset their electricity costs and even sell electricity back to the grid. For homes and commercial buildings, solar panels are a more streamlined alternative to other sources of energy generation.
Although it’s not feasible to generate solar power in all regions of Canada for 12 months of the year (we are known as “The Great White North”, afterall), that doesn’t mean you can’t use the sun to help offset some of your energy expenses and improve your life at home. Allowing natural light into your home reduces your reliance on electric lighting and can actually improve your mood.
We all love natural light, but sometimes the downsides of natural light can seem to outweigh the benefits. Glare, hot spots, fading, and UV exposure to our skin are all reasons why people choose to keep the blinds shut. If only there was a way to enjoy the benefits of natural light in our homes without having to deal with the drawbacks… if only there was a way out of this paradox.
Premium solar control films block 99.9% of UV radiation, reject excess heat, and control glare so you can enjoy natural light without succumbing to its annoyances.
The solution is high performance solar control window film, from Sun Shade. Premium solar control films block 99.9% of UV radiation, reject excess heat, and control glare so you can enjoy natural light without succumbing to its annoyances. Solar films don’t just reject heat in the summer, they will actually help your home retain 88% of its heat in the winter – heat that would otherwise be lost to the outdoors. You will notice a reduction in your heating and cooling expenses, as window films help to keep the temperature moderate.
No more cranking the heat in the winter and the AC in the summer – your home’s climate will remain temperate and consistent. In fact, with winter heat savings and summer AC savings taken into account, you can expect a 5-15% reduction in your heating and cooling bills. As window films last for 10-15 years, you have a long time to enjoy those cost savings and improvements to quality of life.
Whether your goals are to enjoy electronics without the annoying glare, protect your furnishings and skin from UV radiation, or save money on energy, high performance window films will help you achieve them. Sun Shade Window Films has been outfitting homes in Victoria and Vancouver Island for over 20 years, and are now excited to be serving the Kamloops region too.
