burnt blinds

West facing window in North Texas. The sun is so hot it's burning blinds! Imagine the fade damage inside. Avoid this issue with window film that blocks harmful UVB and UVA rays.

Actually no. The window was SSB, with that there was hardly any heat/glare protection. What you are looking at was all sun damage. Possibly from glare off of another window or a car parked right outside.

One of those halogen free standing lamps hugging the blinds inside?
