Residential window tinting can be a very cost-effective way to reduce energy, minimize glare, protect your furnishings and increase the security of your home. The best part is that this film can typically be done as a retrofit to your existing windows with very little disruption to your home. Take a moment to read this excerpt from an article that appeared in How Stuff Works that discussed the top benefits of having your home windows tinted.


Excerpt from an article written by Jessica Brown


“Curtains, furniture and even flooring can fall victim to the effects of the sun. One of the leading culprits in fading your valuables is ultraviolet light. To keep those home furnishings and decorations looking their best, a window film with a high percentage of ultraviolet light rejection would be a good choice. Many films can now block almost 99 percent of the sun’s ultraviolet rays.


Ultraviolet light can not only fade your furniture, but too much of it can affect your health. Ultraviolet rays are the reason for sunburns and are also seen as one of the risk factors for cancer. According ­to the Report on Carcinogens released by the Department of Health and Human Services, ultraviolet radiation is a known human carcinogen [source: National Institutes of Health]. For working to prevent sun-induced skin damage, several types of window film have even been given the Skin Cancer Foundation‘s Seal of Recommendation [source: The Skin Cancer Foundation].


Some window films offer another benefit in the area of safety: shatter resistance. The film’s shatter resistance comes from its ability to hold glass shards together and act as a barrier between the interior of the home and the glass. Along with the safety benefits, window tinting can also help to reduce the glare on your television when viewing the big game. The percentage of glare reduction is usually related to the visible light transmittance. The lower the amount of light transmitted through the film, the greater the glare reduction inside the home.


While a darker film can offer more glare reduction and privacy, a clearer film offers a more natural view from the window. Darker films can also have higher values for reflectivity. Reflectivity can be beneficial when reflecting the sunlight, but it can be less desirable when the view out of your windows at night includes a shadowed version of the room’s interior.”

As a way to honor May as being Skin Cancer Awareness Month, we wanted to share this important sun safety information with you. Did you know that you can be exposed to skin damaging UV rays even when you are indoors at home or work? It’s true. In fact in a recent article published by The Skin Cancer Foundation entitled “Sneaky Ways You’re Being Exposed to the Sun’s UV Rays”, they state;


“…you may think you’re safe from the sun’s rays while you’re on the clock. Not so fast: Do you work near a window? If so, UVA rays are coming to work with you. UVB rays, the primary sunburn ray, are largely blocked by glass; but more than 50 percent of UVA rays, the main cause of premature skin aging, can penetrate glass. (Both UVA and UVB rays contribute to the development of skin cancer.) If you’re anywhere within several feet of the window, the rays will reach you.”


That is one of the reasons The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends window tint as part of a comprehensive skin care. In their article “Why Use Window Film?”, they say “Ultraviolet radiation can travel through car and home windows, where it can contribute to the daily accumulation of sun exposure that can lead to skin cancer and photoaging. UV-blocking films can not only protect you against this exposure, but can offer other benefits as well.”


We hope that this article and Skin Cancer Awareness Month encourage you to look into things you can be doing every day to practice sun safety. If you have additional questions or would like to contact us, call 317-541-8468 for our Indianapolis store and 317-762-8468 for our Greenwood location. We would be happy to provide you with an assessment and estimate on implementing sun control window films in your Indianapolis, Indiana area home or commercial space.

As a way to honor May as being Skin Cancer Awareness Month, we wanted to share this important information with you. Did you know drivers in the U.S. have a higher rate of skin cancer on their left side due to exposure while driving? Here’s a scientific fact that most people find hard to believe: While it’s rare to get sunburned through your car windows, harmful ultraviolet (UVA) rays that contribute to premature aging and skin cancer can still reach you. UV Window Film for your vehicle can help.


Damage from UVA rays is cumulative as they penetrate deep into the skin and can silently accelerate the aging process, cause wrinkles and even skin cancer. In fact, research shows that drivers in the U.S. have a higher rate of skin cancer on their left side due to exposure while driving. Why put up with this risk when you don’t have to any longer? The LLumar window tint we use at Tint King blocks more than 99% of harmful UV rays* (*wavelengths 300-380nm). It’s why The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends window tint as part of a comprehensive skin care program.
