You might think that tinted windows are only added for aesthetic purposes, but adding tint to your windows offers many practical benefits. These are the reasons why window tinting is becoming an increasingly popular car accessory to add:
The most common reason people want this add-on is because it adds an extra layer of protection against theft. Depending on the level of tint, it can prevent people from outside of your car from looking in. Leaving an exposed wallet or cell phone on your seat often just invites people to steal it. By tinting your windows, you’ll feel at least a bit safer knowing that any valuables in your car aren’t as easy to see.
Block Harmful UV Rays
We all know that constant exposure to direct sunlight is never good, especially when most people don’t even wear sunscreen on a daily basis (yikes!). However, tinted car windows can block up to 99% of harmful ultraviolet rays that cause skin aging and even skin cancer. For people who drive for extended periods of time, adding the tint will give you preventative damage to your health.
Protect Interior of a Vehicle
Your car is a valuable personal asset, and as a responsible owner, you should maintain its condition. While using a windshield sun covering or parking your car in the shade can temporarily minimize sun damage, window tint consistently blocks harsh UV rays from fading upholstery and protecting luxury or vinyl seats. It preserves car interiors from cracking and distorting to keep your car looking newer longer.
Keeps Your Car Cooler (in Temperature)
On those hot summer days, tinted windows do reduce the heat produced by direct sunlight. As a result, you could be saving energy since your A/C wouldn’t be working as hard to keep your car cool.
Offers Shatter Glass Protection
Window film is also designed to keep your windows from shattering if an object were to hit them. Even in an accident, it could prevent glass shards from ejecting everywhere or cutting into the skin. Additionally, it can also deter thieves from breaking into your car.
