Glare Through Your Fort Collins Windows Is Worse In The Winter: Window Film Can Help!
Why Winter Is The Time For Glare Reducing Window Film
Winter has come to Fort Collins and what a winter it has been! As the snow piles up outside, the sun is covered with clouds more often and days are shorter, glare-reducing window film may not be something that is on your mind. But, the facts of the matter are, and what many people don’t realize is–glare is actually worse in the winter!
Does that surprise you?
You are not alone. Most people associate glare with the summer sun. And while there is a lot of glare in the summer in Fort Collins, it is actually more pronounced in the winter. The reasons for glare being worse in the winter than the summer are scientific, if not obscure.
Increased Glare From The Sun’s Position In The Sky
During the winter the sun is actually lower in the sky due to the Earth’s axis which means sun shines through your windows directly instead of from an overhead angle like in the summer.
Increased Glare From Less Tree Coverage
As you know, here in Fort Collins the fall is lovely when the leaves light up and turn gold. However, after that the leaves fall off, leaving your glass windows and door completely unblocked from the powerful sun.
