The Traditional Benefits Of Window Tint

If you live in Denver and own a home or business, it is probably true that at one time or another you have looked into doing something about the glaring sun. This is true for so many residents here at a mile high because the altitude here really does make the sun more intense. In the case that you have done even fleeting research into the benefits of window tint/film you probably already know that it

-Saves money on heating and cooling
-Protects people and furniture from harmful UV rays
-Redirects light deeper into a building while reducing glare

Ingenious Uses For Window Film

These benefits are becoming more widely known each day. However, there are some pretty ingenious ways people out there are using window film to achieve success in different areas of life. Take, for instance, the use of window film on fish tanks.





Fish tanks that sit all or partially in the sun inevitably have issues with algae growth because algae use the sun’s harmful UV radiation for photosynthesis. Artificial lighting can also cause algae to bloom, but if a fish tank receives ANY direct sunlight there will be especially big problems. Installing a solar UV blocking window film keeps both light sources at bay and retards the growth of algae. This means you tank will stay fresher, longer and require less cleaning–and the fish will thank you for it too!
