Window Tinting and Your Health

It’s a well-known fact that too much sun exposure can be unhealthy, and is actually a common carcinogen. But what you might not know is that you can be getting too much sun exposure even within your home. Untreated or old glass in your windows only blocks 11 percent of all UV rays, so if you’re spending time near your windows this summer enjoying the warm rays, you could be putting your long-term health at risk.

Protect Your Health with Window Tinting

Untreated glass in your windows, whether they are low-grade windows or simply old units, can allow a huge amount of damaging sunlight into your home. You may have noticed that your floors and furniture have become faded from the sunlight, and this can have an effect on your skin as well!

Overexposure to sunlight can cause many conditions, including skin cancer for some over time. You probably take precautions when you’re outdoors or spending a lot of time in the sun, but most don’t consider how much exposure you get simply by spending time in your own home. Still, a lot of great natural light is typically a benefit for homeowners, so you’ve probably got a lot of it.

Installing window tinting can make a huge difference in the protection you get in your home. In fact, by applying window film, you’ll be blocking 99 percent of all UV rays from passing through your windows, which is an incredible improvement on most windows. You’ll be able to fully enjoy your home without the worry of getting more than your healthy dose of sunlight!

The best part is that window tinting does much more than block out UV rays. In fact, you can expect a savings of up to 60 percent after installing film on your home, allowing you to better keep your home at a comfortable temperature. Moreover, it helps to reduce glare on electronics within your home, and it will stop the fading that you see on items throughout your home. The savings and benefits means you’re investment will pay for itself in as little as 2-5 years.
