If you have any pictures hanging on your wall, you might notice over time the color fading on a part if not all of the photo. Also, the paint on your wall can fade if it is constantly exposed to the sun. You will notice over time that one section of the wall will be a lighter shade than the rest of the room. If you have wallpaper, this can fade over time as well, causing you to have to repaint, hang new wallpaper, and replace art or pictures that are hanging on the wall.
Carpet, hardwood, and vinyl all fade over time when exposed to the sun. If there is no protection from your windows, flooring can be a very costly item to replace. The surface of your flooring can lighten, darken, or even change colors over time if you are not careful.
Furniture, including wood, cloth, or other materials that are exposed to UV light from the sun can fade over time. When the material on furniture fades it’s quite unfortunate because it is expensive to reupholster or replace. If you invest in windows that protect your furniture from this sort of exposure, they will stay in new condition for much longer.
When exposed to the sun, even when inside of a home or car, if there is the direct sun shining in, you are in danger of damaging your skin. You can hang curtains and blinds to block the harsh sun but investing in new windows can help reduce the sun’s UV rays and keep everyone’s skin safe excessive sun exposure.

Low-E stands for low emissivity, which means that the window reduces the amount of heat transfer, reflecting it back to the heat source. Not only does this help to keep your home at an ideal temperature, but it protects you from UV radiation from the sun. UV rays can cause discoloration to the objects inside your home and is a potential danger to your skin.
