Window Film Reduces Fading

Window Tinting Protects against Sun Damage

If you’ve been looking into window film for your home, you’ve likely heard about how UV rays can be damaging to your furniture, flooring, walls, and other belongings. What you may not know is that too much sun exposure can be a health concern for you and your family, including sun that passes through your windows if they are untreated.

How Window Tinting Affects Sun Damage

Big windows in a home are great for natural light, and they are becoming more and more popular in new homes. For many home buyers, a space with great natural light is a huge priority. However, making sure that your windows are treated to protect you and your family should also be a priority. Studies have shown that over exposure to the sun, even through windows, can cause skin damage later in life. In fact, untreated glass only blocks about 11 percent of UV rays from passing through.

Choosing to install window tinting on your home can make all the difference when it comes to sun damage. Window film will block 98 percent of UV rays from passing into your living space, allowing you to enjoy the benefits of natural light, without the problems that it can present. Window film also offers these other great benefits for your home:

  • Glare reduction
  • Lower maintenance
  • More comfortable temperatures
  • Energy savings

All of these in addition to protecting your family from harmful UV rays make for a product that can truly benefit your home. Getting complete peace of mind that you can relax anywhere in your home without the worry of over-exposure to sunlight will make your home even more comfortable.
