Solar Control for apartment living can be achieved through the use of a variety of solar control window films. I have seen a number of apartments that get a lot of sun have all kinds of things in their windows to make it more comfortable. I've seen cardboard, newspaper, sheets, and even a mattress. Rental property owners may ignore this or pose fines, but ultimately it affects the value of the property. Solar control window films can greatly reduce the amount of sun and glare coming into a room. Because it eliminates 99% of the UV rays, furnishings are not damaged. It has the added protection of reducing the risk of skin cancer. Apartments usually are fitted with single layered glass. Applying window film will give the window the effect of being double layered glass. This would result in energy savings. If a rental property company is energy conscious, it could advertise as making these changes to help save energy. Solar control window film is especially valuable in those areas that get direct sunlight especially in the loft apartments on the top floors.
Window film is an relatively inexpensive way to make apartment living more comfortable. Window film is easy to clean. It is cleaned as any other window after 30 days.
