The importance of Sunlight and the need to protect from it

We all need the Sun and it’s light. Human existence is dependent on it and without it, crops will not grow and our health will decline. However whilst the sunlight is great in measures too much can have a detrimental effect on your health also. What additions can we make to the home to protect us from the harshest of the sun’s rays? WIth the changing environment and climate proofing the home is a great idea to make the house a more pleasant place to live and, given our current state of affairs, even possibly work in.

Apart from the usual additions of loft insulation and double glazing one of the best things you can add is that of an awning, Some of the best examples come from the Awnings Stratford Upon Avon based supplier These awnings can extend out a considerable distance covering you west and east facing windows with  a retractable cover that we cloak the window in shadow. This keeps out the worst of the sun’s harsh UV rays that can cause health issues such as heat stroke and sun burn if not protected against.

Sunlight itself is just magnetic radiation given off by the sun. It is made up of 3 parts, infrared, ultra-violet and visible. We need this sunlight to help our bodies produce Vitamin D and for photosynthesis. The Awning will help to disperse the sunlight much in the same way that clouds do.
