It’s no secret that window film provides many benefits, ranging from privacy to unique and durable designs. A special type of film, known as Ultraviolet (UV) Tint, is rapidly becoming the preferred choice among drivers and homeowners. Doctor Window Tint® is here to give you the facts on why UV Tint is so popular and the benefits you’ll experience after installing UV Window Film.
UV Film Protects Against Harmful UV Rays
More people are becoming aware of the harmful effects of UV rays, not only your health but also your belongings. Most of us take extra steps to protect ourselves from the sun outside, but this protection is just as important when indoors.
UV Rays And Health
According to the CDC, the most preventable cause of skin cancer is overexposure to UV light. It is estimated that around 9,500 people are diagnosed with skin cancer every day in the United States. Having five or more sunburns nearly doubles your risk of melanoma, with the majority of melanoma cases being attributable to UV exposure.
Limiting your exposure to UV rays is a feasible way to significantly reduce your risk of developing skin cancer and other skin diseases.
UV Window Tint: A Critical Layer Of Protection
Although the sun’s rays are more harmful outside, UV overexposure is also possible indoors. When we spend time in our living rooms and offices near windows, we often don’t give a second thought to the health risks of exposure to ultraviolet light. UV rays are at their strongest between 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. A large portion of people spends the bulk of this time inside either at home or work. However, indoor overexposure risks are compounded by the fact that we’re even less likely to wear protection when inside.
UV Window Tint adds that needed layer of protection against the sun. With UV tint you can spend time indoors without worrying about the risks of overexposure. And let’s be honest, you probably can’t remember the last time you wore sunscreen indoors.
Your Valuables Also Need Protection
Valuables, such as furniture and art are highly susceptible to the damaging effects of the sun. UV rays can cause furniture and other valuables to fade. By reducing fading with film, you can increase the lifespan of your valuables and inventory, saving a significant amount on replacement and maintenance costs in the long run.
UV Film Reduces Glare
UV rays and glare from sunlight can cause damage to your eyes. UV film makes the indoors more inviting by reducing glare from visible light. Disruptive glare can reduce productivity, cause eye strain, and make spaces uncomfortable. Glare can even be a nuisance during passive activities such as watching T.V. and reading.
UV Film offers the best of both worlds by protecting against harmful and distracting sunrays while letting the perfect amount of natural light into a living space. Tint offers long term benefits such as limiting your eyes’ exposure to the sun and increasing comfort and productivity in indoor spaces.
Problems such as eye damage and decreased productivity, aren’t always noticed early on. Installing tint ensures that you’re protected against the risks of sun overexposure before it becomes a problem.
The sun is often just as hot as it is too bright, especially if you live in South Florida. Like all other films, UV tint offers added insulation to your home and office. Tinting your windows can significantly lower the energy spent on cooling. The film works by making your home and office less susceptible to the heating effects of the sun, maintaining even temperatures year-round.
The icing on the cake? Less money spent on cooling costs each year.
