Windows are one of the most important and attractive features of a home. How many times in the daytime, have we seen blinds closed on windows? How many times have we ourselves closed the blinds in our own home?
Have we ever asked ourselves why we have closed the blinds? Never!
Its an automatic thing to do. We know that closing the blinds provides daytime privacy.
Even though some heat does enter the home around the blinds, it does help keep the home cooler.
Closing the blinds helps protect furniture and floors from fading.
Closing the blinds also protects us from the heat and glare.
But what has happened?
We live in a home where we are blocking the view.
We live in darkness and not the light of the day.
We consider daily the energy cost of the air conditioner
We think about making sure our blinds closed to protect the interior.
We know that we will have to replace our blinds first as they suffer the major damage
When buying a home, have we ever been shown how nice it looks with the blinds closed?

CALIFORNIA IS FIRST IN THE NATION TO ADD WINDOW FILM INTO ITS BUILDING CODE:
The change to the building code voted on May 31/2012 and effective January 2014, means window film is recognized across California as a building product just like glass or roofing materials, but primarily for retrofit applications. It can significantly reduce energy consumption and reduce the effects of glass breakage, glare, harmful UV exposure to the skin and interior fading of furnishings.
A study by California-based ConSol showed among other findings that the vast majority of existing homes would be able to achieve significant energy savings and those with single pane glass could gain a greater energy advantage than using R-38 insulation in their home’s ceilings.
