We often think of ultra violet rays causing damage when we are outside in the sunshine, but the reality is, those same rays can cause damage inside your home too - to you, your property and your electric bill. But there are options out there for homeowners. Low-E (emissivity) glass in your windows can block some of the more dangerous ultra violet rays, as can special anti-UV coating for your windows. Closing shades, blinds and curtains during the hottest parts of the day can help reduce solar radiation too - and that in turn can help your electric costs, allowing your air conditioning to run a little less. To learn more about options to lessen those ultra violet rays, give Hansberger a Refrigeration a call!
