Controlling the Amount of Sun in Your Home

Home Improvement

Having too much sun in your house can make it difficult to watch TV or keep rooms at a comfortably cool level, as well as do real damage to UV-sensitive objects. There are lots of ways to limit the amount of UV rays that get into your house. From planting shade trees on the sides of your home where the sun shines most brightly, to installing awnings in Greensboro, NC, on your home, this article gives suggestions about how you can control the sunniness of your house.

Planting Shade Trees

There are numerous types of trees that grow quickly and with dense enough foliage to block the sun from shining too intensely into your house. American elms and maples are especially popular for people who have homes that are east-facing or have lots of large windows that add a bit too much natural lighting to the home's indoor spaces. Trees make homes more valuable as they are attractive elements that add character to a home. You can choose trees that bear fruit and flower for an added touch of color and texture.

Make sure that when you select a tree, you research how much water it will need and if it will increase your water bill. You should also select a place to plant the tree that is far away from structures and power lines. Many communities have rules against planting trees in front of neighbor's views and other specific regulations. 

Tinting or Replacing Your Window Glass

If you can't find a tree that will fit in your yard, or you simply don't want the maintenance costs associated with mature trees, you can also alter the glass around your home to limit how much light comes in. Window tinting is a process whereby a professional applies a UV-resistant film to one or both sides. This film will reflect back UV rays and will make it so that the room in which the window is located will be cooler and less exposed. 

You can also buy stained or beveled glass to make the sun's rays less directly intense. Frosted or beveled glass is more decorative than regular. If you are looking for a unique touch in addition to a reduction in the amount of sun that comes into your house, this is a route that satisfies both needs.

Choosing the Right Blinds or Curtains

There are many options for blinds and curtains that you can adjust to create the right light level. More diaphanous fabrics will give the light a softer glow. If you are dead set against having sun at all, or need to alter your light levels to sleep well, you can also get blackout curtains or blinds that will block the vast majority of rays from coming into your house. Although many people choose curtains or blinds for strictly decorative purposes, their usefulness for shading can't be overstated.

Choosing and Installing Awnings

Awnings are the canvas or treated fabric stretched over a frame, which is then used to shade windows. Awnings can be multi-colored or have fun patterns. They can be designed with brand information for businesses like restaurants or hotels. Putting awnings on the outside of your home will give it more personality, a pop of color, and less sunlight shining through the windows during the day. Awnings in Greensboro, NC, are a great option if many of the other shading options above aren't doable for your home. You can look through material and color options to find one that will coordinate with your home's exterior and the look of your neighborhood, and then consult with professional retailers to choose your awnings.
