Have you ever been inside a greenhouse? If the sun is shining that day, the heat can get extreme. During the summer months, the same could happen to the inside of your home. With the sun beating down on your windows, the inside air can heat up very quickly, causing your air-conditioning to work overtime and costing you money.
There are ways to lessen the sun’s effect, however. One way is to use window films. You can obtain these at most hardware stores, and they can be installed fairly easily.
Most window films come on a roll, and you will cut them to size for your windows. You will need to make a decision about whether you should get a window film that is permanent, semi-permanent, or temporary. If you want to be able to remove them for the winter when you benefit from the sun’s heat, then the semi-permanent or temporary films are what you are looking for.
