5 Reasons to Install Tint On Your Vehicle

Over the last few years, window film has become a product much more widely known.  From automotive tint, to residential, to safety security film, these have all became widely used for a variety of reasons.  There may be some other important benefits to window tint that you haven’t considered, so let’s see what these might be.

UV Protection

By now everyone knows about the dangers posed by UV radiation. Sitting in an air-conditioned vehicle, it’s easy to forget the damage caused by sunlight pouring through the windows, baking your skin.   Window film contains UV protection and even with a low level of tint, this will protect you from the sun’s harmful rays.

Window tint does not only protect you and your passengers from the sun. Plastic, carpeting, leather and cloth upholstery deteriorate in the sun. This causes cracking and tearing as well as leaving a stale odor.

Window tint will protect your car’s interior from damage, keeping it smelling good and help retain its value.

Accident Protection

When a car is involved in a collision, invariably windows get broken – sending shards of glass flying in all directions. Window tint film keeps a glass surface intact and reduces the risk of broken glass causing serious damage to you and your passengers.

Privacy 

We’ve all seen celebrities disembarking from limos with blackened windows. While you might not feel the need to hide from the paparazzi with this limo tint, have you considcar-thief-peeking-into-car_bered who may be peering into your car when parked on the street or in a public parking lot?

Tinting your car’s windows will prevent passers-by from seeing what’s inside. This will reduce the risk of thieves being tempted to break in and steal what’s inside.

Smash and Grab Protection

Incidents of smash and grab robberies have become fairly common. Just as window tint protects in an accident, it also protects you from intruders who deliberately try to smash your window.

Would be thieves stand less chance of breaking a tinted window and gaining access to your valuables.

Fuel Saving 

Your car’s air conditioning system uses power from the engine to run the compressor, this increases your fuel consumption.

Tinted windows, block out sunlight and keep the car cooler inside. Your air conditioner will work less, in the end saving you fuel.

So, as you can see there are several ways in which automotive window tint can protect you, your car and your personal property, as well as you save you money.

As someone who is not very fond of people looking into my car at all, specifically because I spend a lot on interior upgrades, I want to find a way to safely secure what’s inside my car from onlookers. Window tinting sounds like it can definitely help with that and more, so I’ll look for any auto services that provided it right away.
