Low E Window Film Improves Home Comfort
In this post we wanted to give an example of how Low E window film helped improve the comfort of this house by keeping the home warmer in the Winter and cooler in the Summer. In addition, the film helped reduce the primary causes of fading which extends the life of the home’s furnishings.
The Situation – At an elevation of more than 8,000 feet sits a majestic mansion that seamlessly renders the divide between the built and the natural worlds. Oversized glass windows, (which in this home become glass walls) dramatize the relationship between the house and its spectacular mountain surroundings. The sun’s glare, in tandem with destructive ultraviolet light, became an environmental impediment to the point that the interior living areas were decidedly uncomfortable. This was a particular challenge for the interior designer since the home abounds in valuable art, costly furnishings and an expanse of custom wide-board pine flooring, all of which are particularly sensitive to ultraviolet light, which is a contributing factor to fading.
The Solution -The designer elected to install a Low E window film by LLumar to tame the ultraviolet ravages and combat glare. The high-tech invisible film blocks more than 99 percent of ultraviolet rays, helping protect against premature fading* and helps reduce glare providing visually comfortable surroundings.
The Result – In commenting on the film’s installation, the designer said, “Glare-free views can be enjoyed throughout the year and the fading of the furnishings, precious art and expansive wood floors are no longer a matter of concern. What’s more, the owners are quite oblivious to the presence of the film.”
