Sunlight brings joy daily. It allows you to spend a beautiful day outdoors, or can provide natural lighting in your home. Although we love sunlight, it can also cause some major problems. Not only does the sun cause issues for your skin, but also within your home! Learn how different types of sun rays can impact your space.

Different Types of Sun Rays

Ultraviolet Rays

Ultraviolet rays can be harmful to not only your skin, but the flooring, furniture, and carpets within your home. When UV rays come through your windows and beat down on the furniture or carpets in your home every day, it’s bound to take a toll. Premature fading to carpets, flooring, and furniture can develop throughout the years due to exposure to UV rays. However, at Carolina Solar Security, our 3M Window Film will minimize the sun’s wear and tear, protecting your floors, furniture, and carpets!

Infrared Rays

Infrared light is a type of energy we feel as heat. It can be harmful for a variety of reasons. Infrared rays can heat up a space, which could be problematic during summer months. Your cooling system will have to work harder in order to keep your space cool if too much infrared light is let in. At Carolina Solar Security, our window films reduce up to 79% of the heat that comes through your windows. With window film, decrease your energy bills by reducing the effort of your cooling system.

Visible Light

Although the sun can cause damage to furniture, carpets, and flooring, it can be manageable and worth it. Naturally lit rooms can help save money in the long run. With natural lighting, avoid the excessive use of lamps and overhead lights during the day. Additionally, natural light has a healthy impact on people for a variety of reasons. It can help to increase focus and concentration, as well as reducing stress and anxiety. Sunlight literally helps to promote happiness by increasing serotonin levels and endorphins! Carolina Solar Security’s window film can help to redirect light in your space, which brings the sunlight deeper into your space while also diverting it away from TV, computer, and mobile device screens to reduce glare.

The different types of sun rays can all impact your space differently. Whether you want to reduce energy bills, make your home more comfortable, or increase your natural lighting, window film can help!
