The summer heat and hot sun can do more damage than you think. The reflection off intense sunlight off of windows can cause a number of problems, not to mention excessive heat buildup in your home, which makes your AC have to work harder to keep your home cool. This extra work by your AC costs you money. There is a way to deflect the heat and the damage the intense rays of the sun can cause. Here’s how you can beat the heat with home window tinting.

The Damages of Summer Heat and Sunlight

There are a number of damages that the summer heat and sunlight can cause for and around your home when it reflects off of windows. The windows can intensify the heat and sun’s effects. Here are just a few of those damages:

  • Scorched lawn – The intense reflection of the sun’s rays from windows can scorch your lawn, leaving brown, dead patches of grass.
  • Melted siding – The focused rays reflected from windows and the intense heat they generate can actually melt the siding on your house.
  • Spontaneous window breakage – The heat caused by the sun’s infrared rays can exacerbate impurities in the glass, causing spontaneous window breakage.
  • Excessive heat gain – The sun’s rays streaming through your window generate heat in your home, making it harder for your AC to keep you cool.
  • Interior damage – Rays from the sun, especially UV rays, can cause fading and damage to furnishings, floors, paint, art and window treatments.
