How do solar window films work?
Solar energy travels to the Earth in the form of visible light, UV radiation, and infrared heat. Each of them is dangerous in its own way. Solar films are made in a way that allows them to absorb and reflect this energy, creating an invisible shield that protects your home against sun exposure.
It is important to choose high-quality window treatments that really do their job to effectively reduce your sun exposure indoors. Top manufacturers have the best solar gain heat coefficient (SGHC). You should choose the highest numbers available.
