Your car doesn’t just get you from place to place, but often that’s all we wind up seeing it as. Those who lead busy lifestyles or who constantly feel like they can’t make ends meet may wind up neglecting their car or seeing it as a nuisance that they can’t make the time or money for. However, taking care of your car now means more money later. Whether you own or lease, you’re not likely to keep your car forever. Even if it’s a true beater that you’re planning to scratch completely when you’re done, this summer calls for you to keep UV rays from making the inside of your car feel like an oven. Keep them out of your vehicle (and preferably off your skin too, of course.)
What Can A Star Do?
Just like a movie star can affect major public opinion just by opening their mouth, the sun can affect major change on what’s below it too. The interiors of cars react in different ways, but in general, you’re subjecting it to a lot of stress if you park or drive it in direct sunlight. We won’t bore you with the chemistry, but essentially it can make the interior look much older than it actually is through warping and cracking. Leather especially can get a rough dose of reality from the sun. Window film keeps the UV rays from coming in when you can’t find shade, and it can mean a better resale value when the time comes.
Protecting Your Skin
Have you ever seen the left side of truckers who don’t use sunscreen when they’re on the road? It can be dramatically different than what’s on their right side — craggy, weathered and just plain painful looking. We can’t help very much if you want to stick your arm out the window without protection on, but we can help you if you’re looking for something that can keep you safe when you have the windows up and the air conditioning on. UV rays can be easily stopped when you have the right reflective window film, and it can help you from burning up on even the short drives out for errands when you assume you’re safe from the sun.
Cooler Days, Better Drives
Sun shields not only take up space in your car, but they’re often impractical. Let’s face it, there are going to be times when your kids are screaming in the backseat or you’re late for a meeting where you’re not going to have time to find any kind of covered parking (natural or not.) You won’t have time to put the sun shield up, plus a plastic or vinyl shield will only protect the front of the car, and at best, will help the driver and the passenger. For all around protection that comes already built-in, look for a window tint company that can allow you to drive immediately rather than waiting around for the air conditioning to blow and blow to even make it possible to touch the steering wheel or the gear shift.
The Glare From Above
Glare can be dangerous and it can cause accidents when drivers can’t see what’s in front of them. Even with sunglasses and the window visor down, that may not be enough to protect when the rays are directly at eye-level. If your teen is learning to drive this summer, this is an exceptionally necessary thing to have as window films can make a difference in their confidence and safety on the road.
