Don’t pull out the dvd’s just yet, we’re not talking about that kind of film!
Window films are semi-translucent sheets that are easily rolled onto the inside of your home windows. These films reflect the suns heat and ultraviolet rays, and even reduce glare without obscuring the view!
A 3 foot by 15 foot film which can cover several windows in a home run around $30 at your local hardware store, and take about half an hour to install. Initially once installed they may create a hazy look on your window but it will dissipate within 10 days.
The only drawback to these films is for some windows, they may void the warranty, so make sure to check what sort of windows you have and if they’re covered.
