The impact of the sun on your home and why you should care
The sun is a brilliant source of radiant light, UV, and heat, each offering a range of benefits from improved health and wellbeing to cost-saving passive heating. However, in excess, it easily proves to be too much of a good thing, both for ourselves and our belongings.
In summer, this is particularly relevant. A combination of the likes of the suns angle and NZ’s clear skies lead to increased sun exposure, making for long hot days with index topping UV levels — the downsides of which can include:
- Furniture fading
- Uncomfortable temperatures
- Increased energy bills, and
- Poor sleep.
Fortunately, simple remedies exist.
