A Better Tint: Protecting your home from harmful effects of the sun

0 IT IS REALLY HOT

>> YES! AND DO YOU KNOW WHAT? IF YOU ARE NOT LUCKY ENOUGH TO BE INDOORS DURING THE DAY, THAT HE CAN ACTUALLY PENETRATE INTO YOUR HOME WE WERE JUST TALKING ABOUT THAT BUT I FOUND A REALLY COOL WAY, LITERALLY, TO KEEP THE HEAT OUT >> Reporter: I AM STANDING INSIDE OF THIS BEAUTIFULLY DESIGNED KITCHEN BUT HAVE YOU NOTICED ANYTHING DIFFERENT ABOUT IT? TAKE A LOOK AT THESE WINDOWS DO YOU NOTICE ANYTHING? THERE ARE NO WINDOW TREATMENTS

MOST OF US WOULD BE PUTTING UP WINDOW TREATMENTS TO BLOCK THE SUN AND SAVE ON ENERGY COSTS BUT THAT IS NOT THE CASE, HERE THERE IS A BETTER WAY I SHOULD SAY, A BETTER TIP BECAUSE THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT THESE ARE THIS IS ERIC ERIC, YOU PUT THE TENT ON THESE WINDOWS AND I HAD NO ID

EXPECT THANK YOU, TERRY WE PUT A WINDOW FILM ON HERE THAT IS VIRTUALLY CLEAR AND IT BLOCKS OUT UP TO 60% OF THE HEAT AND IT BLOCKS OUT UP TO 999% OF THE UV RAYS OF A DAMAGING SUNRA TO THE FLOORS AND FURNITURE WHICH WE WILL TALK ABOUT LATER AND SOME OTHER THINGS ABOUT HEALTH A LOT OF PEOPLE, THAT IS WHY WE PUT UP THOSE WINDOW TREATMENTS, FLOOR PROTECTION AND THESE WINDOWS ARE FACING WEST WHICH MEANS YOU ARE GETTING EVEN MORE OF THE SUN EXPOSURE SO HOW MUCH PROTECTION DO WE ACTUALLY GET FROM THESE WINDOW TREATMENT >> THESE WERE ADDED AFTER THE FACT THEY WERE PUT IN WEST, FACING WEST WHICH IS NORMALLY SOMETHING — [ LAUGHTER ] AND THIS PARTICULAR PRODUCT WALKED OUT 66% OF THE HEAT AND AS YOU CAN TELL, IT IS BARELY TENTED

>> I DIDN'T EVEN KNOW AND YOU SPOKE OF FLOORS AND A LOT OF PEOPLE HAVE WOOD FLOORS OR CARPETIN OR FABRIC, THE SUN CAN REALLY DAMAGE THAT IF IT IS HITTING IT DIRECTLY >> A LOT OF TIMES, THEY HAVE THE PATIO SLIDERS THAT THEY WANT TO DO WHEN WE GO INTO A HOME OR THEY HAVE WINDOWS LIKE THIS AND TO ADDRESS THE HEAT, WE GO IN AND GET AN ANALYSIS OF THE HOME AND WE TALK ABOUT WHERE WE CAN PROTECT WOOD FLOORS FROM FADING WHETHER IT IS THE BACK OF THE COUCH UP AGAINST THE WINDOW RUGS SO WE CAN PULL UP A CORNER OF A RUG AND SOMETIMES, THOSE WOODEN FLOORS ARE FADED AROU

>> AND THAT WOULD JUST MAKE ME SICK BECAUSE WOODEN FLOORS ARE KIND OF EXPENSIVE AND WE WANT TO PROTECT THEM SO LET'S TALK ABOUT THE INSTALLATION PROCESS AND OBVIOUSLY, YOU WORK WITH DESIGNERS AND HOMEBUILDERS AND WHATNOT BUT LET'S TALK ABOUT IT THIS HOME, YOU CAME IN HOW DO YOU PUT THE FILM UP? >> IT IS RELATIVELY EASY WE COME INTO A HOME AND THE FILM GOES ON THE INSIDE OF THE WINDOWS SO WE COME IN A WE PRESS THE WINDOWS AND CLEAN THEM, OURSELVES

WE GET THEM READY FOR THE FILM AND THE GUYS COME IN AND OUT AND THEY ARE DONE IN THE SAME DAY ON MOST CASES RELATIVELY SIMPLE PROCESS THE FILM GOING ON THE INSIDE ALLOWS THE FILM TO LAST FOREVER IT IS A LIFETIME WARRANTY PRODUC >> REALLY? OKAY! THAT IS EVEN BETTER TO KNOW

AND SOMETIMES, WE ARE LOOKING FOR SOMETHING A LITTLE BIT DIFFERENT AND I NOTICED THAT YOU ALSO OFFER UP A FROSTED FILM, IS THAT RIGHT? TELL ME SOME OF THE DIFFERENT APPLICATIONS >> WE HAVE OVER 60 DIFFERENT PRODUCTS AND PATTERNS FOR FROSTING FIL AND WE WORK WITH A LOT OF INTERIOR DESIGNERS AND ARCHITECTS ON THIS AND FIND THE RIGHT FILM FOR THEM WE CAN EVEN DO SOME CUSTOM CUTTING WORK A LOT OF PANTRIES, YOU PUT IN A PIECE OF FROST AND IT'S A NICE FONT, AS WELL >> WE ARE TALKING CUSTOM, HERE! I THINK WHAT I HAVE LEARNED TODAY IS THAT IF YOU ARE IN THE PROCESS OF REMODELING AND A LOT OF PEOPLE ARE, AND YOU THINK, I CANNOT PUT A WINDOW THERE EVEN THOUGH I HAVE A GREAT VIEW OF SOMETHING, BECAUSE OF THE SUN, WE DON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT THAT ANYMORE! HOW MUCH MONEY CAN WE SAVE ON OUR ENERGY BILLS? >> YOU CAN SAVE UP TO 30% ON YOUR ENERGY BILLS
