Residential Window Tinting- Tools of the Trade

Since 1985, Carolina Solar, your authorized 3M Window Film dealer and window tinting specialist in Raleigh, Wilmington, and Myrtle Beach, has been helping residents reduce glare in their homes, prevent fading of furniture, flooring, and accessories, and decrease combat rising energy costs. At a recent BNI meeting, one of Carolina Solar’s owners, Jim Arnesen, was asked to bring in a tool or two of the trade when describing his business to the group of professionals. Jim brought in two unique devices– a BTU meter, which is a device he uses to measure heat, and a UV meter, which measures the amount of UV light that comes in through windows. After meeting with a homeowner, Jim is able to determine which 3M Window Film would be best to let in the natural light of the sun, while preventing damaging UV rays and excessive heat.
