Window Tinting Is Essential Protection for Your Family, Even in the Winter

February 28, 2012 | Comments: 0 | Views: 163

The summer heat may make it easy to remember to apply sunscreen or pickup a new pair of sunglasses, but what about during the winter months? Certainly many of us are spending more time indoors during the winter since our favorite outdoor activities are put on hold until the temperatures return to a comfortable level in the spring. So we tend to forget about protection from the sun when, in fact, protecting ourselves from UV radiation is just as important during the winter months.

What you may not have considered is that not only are harmful UV rays still strong enough to do damage during the winter, but often the effects are much worse because people do not take steps to protect themselves. The harmful UV rays streaming in the windows of your home, office, and vehicle not only wreak havoc on your interior space and furnishings, but they are also damaging to your family's health.

Much like sunglasses and sunscreen, tinted window films are designed to block harmful UV radiation from the sun and protect you and your family while in the car and at home. These tinted films are available in varying levels of protection depending on the intensity of the sun in the area in question. For example, if one side of your home takes the brunt of a day's sunlight, it may be best to apply a high level of tinted UV protection film to the windows on that side of the house. Conversely, an area that does not receive much sunlight may require a lighter tint to provide adequate protection for your family and furnishings.

The benefits of window tinting actually go beyond those mentioned above. Tinted window films are also an effective deterrent to theft. When potential thieves cannot see inside to assess the contents of your home or vehicle, they are less likely to take the risk of breaking in. Additionally, tinted window films reduce glare on flat screen televisions and computer screens, and save money on utility bills by greatly reducing the amount of heat energy that is transferred through your windows in the summer and in the winter.

Additional tinted films are available for special purposes. Certain films greatly improve visibility looking out of windows after dark. This not only creates great visibility if you have a wonderful view, but also provides a bit of extra security so that you are able to see outside clearly without others looking in. There are also opportunities to customize your windows with decorative films in a wide variety of styles designed to dress up your windows at a fraction of the cost of etched glass.

Clearly the benefits of tinted window films are many. It is difficult to argue the return on investment when it comes to protection for your family's health. Match that with lower utility bills, plus a longer life for your expensive home furnishings and vehicle interiors and it is truly a worthwhile investment at any time of the year.
