Working from home has become more common than ever before. When setting up a home office, it’s clearly important to invest in a comfortable and ergonomic desk and desk chair, as well as adequate lighting. What may not be as obvious is the role the windows in your home office will play in your comfort. Your windows can be a welcome source of natural light and warmth. But they can also be a source of glare and excessive heat, especially in south Florida. To maximize productivity and minimize distractions, consider window film for your home office. Tinting your home office windows can control the heat and glare of the sun.
Five Reasons to Install Window Film for Your Home Office
Working from home can mean a long day of sitting in front of your computer. If you’re worried about UV exposure or bothered by glare on your monitor, it’s time to take action.
Here are five reasons to install 3M Window Film in your home office:
- Protection from the sun – The UV rays of the sun can cause fading and damage to your furniture, flooring and artwork. Worse, UV rays lead to sun damage and skin cancer. Tradition glass windows do very little to block UV rays, but window film is an easy solution.
While you may think of window tint as being dark, it doesn’t have to be to be effective. 3M Window Films give you option to choose the level of light you want to let in. Multiple tint options reject up to 99% of UV rays, up to 80% of infrared rays and up to 63% of total solar energy. You can have all the benefits of window tint without changing the appearance of your home.
- Glare Reduction – The eye strain and annoyance of full sun glare can make it difficult to work at certain times of the day. That’s a headache you can do without, and one that is easily controlled with 3M window film.
Make your home office easy on your eyes with 3M™ Prestige Series window films. These films are comprised of multiple layers of nano-technology film that enable precise control of light. Compared to other films, Prestige Series Window Films increase their performance at a faster rate as the sun’s angle increases. That means greater protection and comfort when the sun is high and at the hottest part of the day.
- Lower energy costs – You can reduce your carbon footprint, your energy bill and the wear and tear on your HVAC system by installing window film for your home. 3M Window Films reduce solar transfer, meaning they allow less heat to pass through. Your home will stay cooler during the hot Florida summer, reducing the need to run your air conditioning as often. And in the winter months, your home will stay warmer.
3M Residential Window Films can be installed on the interior or the exterior of your windows, depending on the type of windows you have. 3M’s Sun Control Window Film Prestige EXTERIOR Series blocks UV rays and heat before they ever enter your home. And it’s strong and durable enough to stand up to the south Florida weather.
- Increased safety & security – 3M window films can also improve the safety and security of your home. Your home office may be where you keep expensive computer equipment and sensitive personal and professional data. 3M™ Safety & Security Film, Prestige Ultra Series helps fortify glass doors and windows, making it more difficult for an intruder to break through. Even when shattered, broken glass stays together to prevent injuries to your family members and to deter unauthorized entry. Each additional moment it takes to break through buys time for those inside to take cover and for emergency responders to arrive.
3m Safety & Security film is available in clear or tinted options for sun control. It provides up to 97 percent infrared rejection, which blocks heat transfer, improves overall comfort and provides energy cost savings. The film also blocks up to 99.9 percent of harmful UV rays.
- Uncluttered style – Modern minimalism is in. Forget the heavy drapes, annoying blinds or bulky window treatments. Window film can control the sun and keep your windows looking sleek and simple.
There are many options to suite your style and your needs, in addition to the popular 3M Prestige Series. 3M™ Night Vision Series is a low sheen window film that provides clear views day and night, even with interior lights on. 3M™ Privacy Films can let you see out while reducing what your neighbors and passersby can see looking in.
