Most people think about the engine, suspension, braking system and transmission when servicing their vehicle. However, few think about components such as the windows and their role in the vehicle's safety and efficiency. Your car's windows do more than just bringing some light into the cabin. They also contribute to the beauty of the vehicle and its fuel efficiency. Car window tinting has been trendy for a while now, with most people doing it for beauty. However, there are other practical benefits that you will get from properly tinted car windows.
You Protect Your Seats From Fading
Cars with regular windows bring in an uncontrollable amount of light from the outside into the car. The light contains the harsh rays of the sun. The rays are harmful because they wash the colour out of your car's interior upholstery. Therefore, when you tint your car windows, you are reducing the number of rays that land on your car's interior and, by doing so, minimising the speed at which they fade. As a result, tinting will keep your vehicle beautiful and vibrant for many years.
You Block the Harmful UV Rays
Everyone understands that the ultraviolet rays of the sun are harmful to their skin. However, very few people really think that the time they spend in their car causes enough ray exposure to be harmful. The time you take to drive to work, run errands and drive back home is a lot of exposure to the harmful rays. Over the years, you could increase your risk of developing skin cancer. It is best to have a professional coat your car windows with film as that may eliminate the chances of skin damage.
You Increase Solar Heat Rejection
The temperatures inside the car depend on the rays of the sun streaming through the windows. When there is excessive sunlight getting in the car, the temperatures rise, and you have to keep the AC on for longer hours. This affects your fuel consumption and comfort inside the vehicle. Tinting the windows improves solar heat rejection and keeps the interiors cool.
You Improve Glass Shattering Protection
Car window tinting protects your glass from shattering when you get involved in an accident. The film holds the glass together and stops the shards from flying in every direction and hurting people when you have an accident.
