Advantages of Car Window Tinting

Although some cars come with the back windows already tinted, most have front windows that are just clear glass. It’s becoming increasingly popular to get the front windows tinted too. There are many reasons tinting is a good idea, and some of them you might not have considered before.

1. Privacy

Privacy is probably the most common reason people decide to get their windows tinted. It can give you peace of mind to know that people can’t look into your car from the outside. They can also protect against theft, since potential thieves won’t be able to see any valuables left inside the car.

2. Less Heat

We’ve all experienced the discomfort of getting into a hot car and having to keep any exposed parts of your body away from scorching metal and plastic. Window tint can help with this, since it can leave your car’s interior up to 60% cooler. This is especially important when you have children in the car.

Window tint also helps you save money and is good for the environment. When the car is cooler, you don’t have to use the air conditioning as much—which means you don’t use as much gas.

3. Protects Your Skin

Unfortunately, frequent drivers are at a higher risk for skin problems due to the UV rays that stream through the window glass. These can even lead to skin cancer if exposure is great enough. Good quality window tint blocks as much as 99% of the UV rays that would otherwise be absorbed by the skin, so it’s are very important if you drive a lot or have children in the car.

4. Keep the Interior of Your Car Looking Great

Those same UV rays that are problematic for your skin can also cause problems for your car’s interior. Leather or cloth upholstery, as well as dashboards and accessories, that are repeatedly exposed to sunlight can start to fade or even crack. Window tinting is a good way to keep your vehicle’s interior looking like new for longer.

5. Safety

Window tinting can even help with safety. The film that’s applied helps to hold windows together and keep small pieces from flying into the interior of the car. In the event of an accident or projectile hitting the window, this can prevent injury to the driver and passengers in a car.
