Over time, exposure to the Sun can damage furniture, carpets and artwork. But you can protect your possessions from the Sun's harmful rays with solar protection window film from companies such as CHB Industries. This protective film blocks 98 percent of ultraviolet rays. It also cuts down on heating and cooling costs. In the summer, the film can keep the house up to 65 percent cooler by protecting against solar heat gain. In the winter, the film acts as insulation and reduces heat loss by up to 15 percent. Put it in place before the pictures on your walls turn a pale blue.
