If you’re a chronic migraine sufferer, it’s time to consider tinting your home’s windows. While many things can bring on and/or make a migraine worse, the sun is a source we can easily address. While blinds and curtains are one way to block out the sun, window tint is a much better approach because it blocks the migraine causing aspects of sunlight while still allowing light in and a view out.
Window Tint Help in Both Vehicles and Homes
First, it’s important to note that window tint isn’t just for vehicles. Window tinting film can be applied to any glass surface, so for all the same the reasons one would tint their vehicle, you can reap the same benefits in your home. Those benefits include heat reduction, reduced sun glare, blocking UV rays, saving on energy costs, and improving the look of your home’s exterior.
Window Films Reduce Sun Glare on Screens
Have you ever tried to watch television or read a work email with the sun at your back? Sun glare on digital devices makes it extremely difficult to read anything, which leads to general eye strain. This eye strain is a common trigger of migraines for a lot of our clients. And those same clients have told us eliminating sun glare has led to a massive improvement in their comfort at home
Better Temperature Control in Your Home or Car
For those with migraines, excessive heat only worsens an already uncomfortable situation. By installing residential window tint in Virginia, you can drastically reduce the ‘hot zones’ in your home caused by the sun’s heat. Ultimately, this means better temperature control and more efficiency from your HVAC unit. It also means less stress and agitation during a migraine.
Less Eye Strain Looking into the Sun
Like the eye strain of trying to read a washed-out screen, the eye strain of trying to look in the direction of the sun can be blinding. Residential window tint can nearly eliminate the pain of looking into the sun when you have a migraine. The types of residential tint we use not only block on the glaring ring around the sun, but also just the general overall blinding light at the peak hours of the day.
