It’s no fun to get a new couch in a bright color that really adds a pop to the room, only to have that color fade out and look dull in a few years. The sun can really do a number of items you place in your home from flooring to furniture and everything in between. What can you do to protect what you buy? One option is to get replacement windows in Claremont, CA.
While you might not want to get replacement windows just because your furniture is fading from the sun, if you already need new windows, getting something that is going to protect your home from the sun should be a priority. If you’ve lived here long enough, you know what the California sun can do, inside and outside of your home.
One of the problems with natural light is that you often bring heat into your home when you let the sun in. Many people just block the sun out with window coverings when it gets hot, and that’s certainly an option. If you have standard windows, the best thing you can do is block the sun out when it’s hitting the windows at its peak and keep furniture from fading that way.
But you might want to let the sun in and it’s not fair that you have to close the house up all the time just because things get hot or furniture is getting too much late. When you get replacement windows, you will learn that there are lots of window upgrades to consider. And one of those upgrades can help you combat the heat and fading issues.
Consider low-E glass coatings on your windows or at least the ones that get direct sunlight. This coating is a thin metallic that you can see right through. You won’t notice it at all when you look through the glass, but it’s there and it’s doing a lot for your home. The metallic nature of the coating will bounce the heat of the sun back outside. You won’t feel the heat inside when it’s hot outside, just because you are letting the natural light stream through the home. It’s a great benefit. You can get the light you want without the heat you don’t want.
This coating also works hard to block UV rays. The sun will come in and it will hit your furniture, flooring, and other items, but the UV rays are kept out. That colorful couch you got won’t fade and neither will anything else. You won’t have to replace things inside nearly as often—at least not due to color fading issues!
When you look into replacement windows in Claremont, CA, think about how hot your hone gets when you let the sun shine through and consider getting low-E glass coatings to prevent that issue from being a problem any longer. The professionals at J.R. Door & Window Inc are here to talk through that upgrade and any others you might consider for your home.
