Maintaining good health is something that many of us think about regularly, but you may not have thought of the ways that window tinting can provide health benefits. You may be raising your eyebrows at this suggestion, but we think you will find that window tinting can benefit the health of you, your loved ones, and your employees or co-workers!
THE HEALTH BENEFITS OF WINDOW TINTING
Besides the benefits of decreased energy bills, temperature regulation, and protection for your furniture and flooring, home window tinting offers health benefits, as well! While Florida is definitely a state that encourages outdoor living, we all still spend a considerable amount of time in our homes. When outside, you (hopefully) use sunscreen to protect your skin from the sun’s harmful UV rays.
Protecting your skin from the sun is particularly important in Florida where we have so many sunny days and a higher UV index than many other states. Let’s take a brief look at how Florida compares to the rest of the United States. The statistics make it pretty clear that Floridians are exposed to more sun than the average American. Florida experiences an average of 237 sunny days per year while the rest of the United States average 205 sunny days. We basically get an additional month of sun! Our average UV index is 6.1 while the rest of the United States averages a UV index of 4.3. Our average is in the High range of the UV index scale!
Our window tint blocks out 99% of harmful UV light! Whether our tint is installed in your home, vehicle, or place of business, your skin is being protected much better than if you had no window tint. For those who drive for a living or commute to and from work, this is of particular concern, as the left side of your body (the driver’s side nearest to the window) receives more exposure than most people. Remember that melanoma can be fatal. Take your skin protection seriously, and get your windows tinted!
When outside, you likely wear sunglasses. You may even be good about getting your kids to wear them – not always an easy task! But, what about when you are inside? Do your eyes still need protection from the sun? Too much exposure to UV light can raise your risk of eye diseases. It has been determined that children’s eyes allow 70% more UV rays into their retinas than adults’ eyes. Even sitting near a window can harm our eyes due to exposure to UV light. Window tinting is an excellent way to provide additional protection for your eyes. Unless you wear sunglasses indoors all the time, then you should consider having your home’s windows tinted.
Did you know that 12% of the U.S. population suffers from migraines? Migraines are much more than a headache. Along with severe head pain, they are usually accompanied by other physical symptoms which may include nausea, vomiting, vision issues, and sensitivity to noise and light. Migraines can be debilitating. For those who have a sensitivity to light during a migraine, window tinting can offer a major benefit. Any migraine sufferer affected by light can tell you that a dark room is essential in aiding their migraine. Window tinting can help by blocking out sun rays that can be literally painful for a migraine sufferer.
Sunlight can also trigger migraines for some people. Because of this, window tinting in your home, vehicle, and office can help prevent a migraine from starting. If you don’t own your office building and are employed by someone else, suggest window tinting to your employer. A more comfortable office is better for everyone!
