In previous blogs, I have reviewed the various reasons why having window film installed at your home (or office) brings value. These reasons include, but are not limited to, protection from hot and cold temperatures, protection from fading, increased safety and security, as well as lowered energy costs.
In addition to these valuable benefits, there are some unexpected reasons to consider window film.
1. Significant Glare Reduction
This may seem obvious, but this benefit is often overlooked. One of the benefits of living in the Southern California area is the scenery. Being able to enjoy the view, while enhancing your comfort, is ideal.
2. Protection from More Than Just Bad Guys
We know that window film adds security in terms of keeping the bad guys out, but did you know it also offers protection in situations where glass breakage is possible? Two examples of this are:
- “Acts of God”: While Californians may not experience various kinds of damaging weather, we do have natural disasters like earthquakes. The USGS reported that, “each year the southern California area has about 10,000 earthquakes.” While most of them are too small to be felt, “about 15-20 are greater than magnitude 4.0.”
- Sports Accidents: Whether you reside on a golf course and want to prevent golf balls breaking your windows, or you have a little slugger practicing baseball in or around your home, sports accidents happen on a regular basis.
3M Window Film is an optimal solution that can prevent glass from shattering, which in turn, protects for you, your family and your belongings. The film essentially holds the glass in place when impact occurs, which can prevent serious injury or liability concerns.
3. Reduction of Allergies
Allergies are not exclusive to the outdoors. According to the AAAAI, “Millions of people suffer year-round from allergy symptoms caused by indoor allergens.” These allergens often collect on curtains, blinds, shutters and other window coverings in the home.. With window film, you are able achieve protection without the bulky, allergen-absorbing window treatments.
