San Antonio experiences 220 days of sunshine each year. To give you some perspective, the national average is 205. When you have that much sun, it’s important to be conscious about your exposure to UV light. UV rays are known for causing serious, long-term disease and excessive exposure can dramatically affect your quality of life. That’s why we recommend installing UV blocking window film for your San Antonio home.

Below, we’ve discussed some of the health benefits of UV protection window tint and why it’s a good investment.


Why Should I Be Concerned About UV Radiation?

UV light is a form of electromagnetic radiation emitted by the sun. It’s what’s responsible for giving you an awesome tan as well as a not-so-awesome sunburn. Excessive exposure to UV rays can result in serious bodily diseases such as cancer, permanent eye damage, and immune system dysfunction.


How Do I Limit My Contact with UV Rays?

UV light is all around us. So while it’s impossible to escape entirely, you can still take certain steps to limit your exposure. This includes putting on sunscreen when you go outside. The Skin Cancer Foundation also recommends UV blocking window film for your San Antonio home in order to limit your exposure to UV radiation indoors.


5 Health Benefits of UV Blocking Window Film

You may think that you’re safe from UV rays inside. But that couldn’t be farther from the truth. UV rays are still a concern indoors because they’re able to enter your home through your windows. That’s where window tinting can help. Installing UV blocking window tint is a smart way to protect your health and limit your exposure. Some of the benefits include:

  1. Reduces your risk of developing skin cancer.
  2. Protects your eyes and prevents eye disease.
  3. Helps prevent the onset of cataracts.
  4. Keeps your immune system healthy.
  5. Protects your skin and prevents signs of aging.
