Tinted car windows are not just for limo windows or government vehicles. There are actually benefits to not having crystal clear windows on your car. You may have never considered window tint as an option for your care, but it is actually one of the best decisions (on top of other regular maintenance) you can make for your vehicle. While it is possible there could be more, here are 6 of the top benefits that window tint provides.
Having darker tinted windows helps prevent onlookers from being able to see through the windows of your vehicle. If you leave valuables in your car or don’t want your vehicle to be stolen, tinted windows can help curb the temptation of thieves to rob your car.
While window tint can keep people from looking in your car or seeing who is in your vehicle, it can not prevent theft 100%. Whether you have tint or not, make sure to take other precautionary measures to keep your vehicle safe. If you leave your car unattended for a long period of time or park in a deserted area, make sure to lock your vehicle.
Direct sunlight exposure can cause adverse health effects, outside of your vehicle and inside it. Tint can help prevent discomfort, sunburns or other skin conditions caused by the sun. Bright light can also cause eye diseases such as macular degeneration and cataracts.
The standard glass in your vehicle doesn’t block the sun’s UV rays completely. Getting high quality window tint can block about 99% of harmful rays. This is an appealing option for those who drive several hours a day or may be more susceptible to skin conditions. If you find yourself traveling for work, commuting, or running errands in your vehicle for long periods of time, window tint could help to improve your health.
You may have experienced driving while the sun is setting and glaring directly into your eyes. Not only can this be frustrating, but can keep you from being able to see properly. Sunglasses may not be enough to help you see other cars, pedestrians or traffic signs which can result in more accidents. Having a professional window tint can provide you with a more comfortable view and keep you from crashing into another vehicle or obstacle.
Keeping It Cool
With summer just around the corner, temperatures can reach record temperatures. Hot cars in the summer can be unpleasant and even costly. You may have put a visor or sun blocker in your windshield or other windows, but often that is not enough to keep your whole vehicle cool in high temperatures. Using window tint can help reduce the temperature in your car and lessen the need for the A/C unit which can improve fuel efficiency.
Tint can come in different varieties for different needs. Talk to a technician about what tint would be suitable for your vehicle.
Keep Your Upholstery From Fading
Keeping the sun out of your vehicle not only helps keep it cool but also can keep your upholstery from fading. You want your car to last as long as possible and preventing sun damage to the car can protect your investment. Tint prevents discoloration, cracking in leather and vinyl and warping to keep your car looking nicer for longer. Preventing sun damage improves the value of your vehicle, keeps it comfortable and stylish.
If you are in an auto accident, the default window glass in your care can shatter, sending glass shards in every direction. Having window tint acts as a film to keep the pieces together or from shattering at all. In the event of an accident this can also prevent passengers or you from being ejected from the car or getting cut by glass.
Additionally, thieves will find it harder to break the windows into your car because of the adhesive qualities of the tint.
