You already know that sunlight is powerful stuff; that's why you put sunblock on your skin before you go to the beach, wear sunglasses while you're driving, and why you may well have window tint on your car and energy efficient windows in your home. But is sunlight potent enough to melt artificial turf, vinyl siding, and other materials around your property? It sure is, when it's reflected off those energy efficient windows you thought were there to help!
In a cruel irony, the artificial turf and energy efficient windows you installed to help make your home greener and more cost effective may be working at cross purposes. Glare reflected off energy efficient windows can melt artificial grass when the sunshine is concentrated into a hot beam of light, damaging that material you installed to reduce your need for water in hopes of making your home more eco friendly. But ripping out those windows that reduce interior temperatures and shrink your energy bill and your home's carbon footprint is no ideal solution!
Anti glare window film is the best way to prevent sun reflecting off windows melting artificial turf. Perforated anti reflective window film sends sunlight bouncing in thousands of directions instead of letting it concentrate on your turf, or on nearby vinyl siding on your property or, even more sensitive of an issue, on a neighbor's house.
If your energy efficient windows are burning outdoor furniture, melting the turf or siding, or burning grass or other plant life because of reflected sunshine, anti glare window film is a quick, affordable, and lasting solution.
