What's the first thing you think of when you think about window tinting services?
If you're like many of us, you think about some hot-shot driving a hot rod who wants his car windows to be shaded so people can't see in. You might be thinking that a lot of these customers also put LED lights on the sides of their vehicles, and do whatever else they can do without legally changing the title, to modify the ride for maximum visual impact.
This is part of the window tinting industry, sure, but there's a lot more to it than that. With that in mind, let’s talk about the value of window tinting in business or residential buildings.
This is one of the most basic aspects of understanding the benefits of window tinting.
Still, a lot of people just don't think about it. However, many of our customers are very interested in doing common-sense things to reduce their exposure to UV rays.
Have you ever driven your vehicle all day, and at the end of the day, you look at your left arm, and it's red? This is one of the prime examples of how UV light affects us in ways that we don't always think about. Ironically enough, we do tend to purchase shade protection for babies when they ride in the backseat, but window tinting achieves the same result for everyone in a vehicle, or in a home or business building. It's just a common-sense way to protect everyone from excessive sun every day.
This one kind of combines the aesthetic appeal of window tinting with a practical benefit – it makes buildings more secure. Police will tell you that when people can’t see in, they’re less likely to break in, and in addition, window tinting can help to protect trade secrets and other sensitive data when it comes to facilities security. Tinted windows help to keep the interior of a vehicle or building opaque, and that helps with security issues.
A Cool Interior Environment
Going along with everything that we said about UV rays, window tinting also helps cool an interior.
We know that the greenhouse effect is a major part of why buildings heat up during a bright summer day. The sunlight comes in and gets absorbed in the interior. If less sunlight comes in, then less heat is generated inside. So this is another practical benefit of installing window tinting.
