How much sun is good for us?
We have always treated the sun as the source of life, but too much exposure to direct sunlight can have negative impacts on all of us. Like they say, too much of a good thing is always a bad thing. According to WHO, prolonged exposure to ultraviolet radiation has a detrimental effect on the human body, even though sunlight enhances your feeling of well-being. To stay healthy, it is enough to get from ten to thirty minutes of direct sunlight only two or three times a week.
The sun can affect not only your health, but also homes. If there is not enough direct sunlight getting into your apartment, dangerous microorganisms can begin to multiply. All you need is just around one sunny hour per day for a two-room apartment. But if the sun’s rays shine more than two hours a day, you should shade your windows to maintain comfortable room temperature and to protect your furniture from fading.
To achieve the best cooling effect, SolarGaps system is mounted outside, because external shading prevents the heat from contacting with the window. As the blinds block direct and indirect sunlight, the temperature in the room decreases, so you need less air conditioning. Additionally, SolarGaps solar blinds generate green energy, which you can use for your own purposes. Save on your bills twice and reduce CO2 emissions.
According to data obtained by the Mauna Loa Observatory in Hawaii, the concentration of carbon dioxide in the Earth’s atmosphere has already reached 415 ppm (parts per million). This is the highest level since Homo sapiens appeared on the planet.
Even the small amount of green energy you can get by using the SolarGaps system is a huge step to slow down global warming. It’s our turn to take care of the planet. Take a step today.
