What’s the big deal with tinted windows? Although many people regard them as an aesthetic choice, tinting actually has tangible benefits, especially for us in Texas where we’re no strangers to sunny weather! Here are five reasons to consider tinting your windows:
Keeps upholstery from fading
Direct sunlight can be damaging, fading the leather or cloth of your car’s interior, warping or even cracking over time. Windshield sun protetectors or parking in the shade can temporarily reduce sun damage, but it’s just a bandaid. Tinting your windows consistently blocks the sun and will reduce the harmful effect and keep your upholstery looking good as new!
Blocks UV rays
Have you ever gotten a sunburn through your car window on a long drive? Tinted windows help shield up to 99% of harmful UV rays from reaching your skin. This is something especially helpful for anyone who lives in an extremely sunny region as harmful UV can accelerate skin aging and cause skin cancer.
Helps solar heat rejection
Tinted windows can bring down the heat in your car by as much as 70%! This means that you can use your air conditioner less, which helps you save energy and improve gas mileage.
Increases privacy and security
Probably the most widely-known benefits of tinting, the dark film will ensure that you and your passengers are shielded from prying eyes at all times. When you park your car, tinted windows can discourage lurking people from seeing anything inside your car and thus saving you a major headache.
Protects glass from shattering
In case of an emergency, whether an attempted robbery or a car accident, tinted film can help hold shattered windows together, preventing pieces of glass from flying in all directions.
Of course, whether you tint your windows or not, it’s always important to keep them clean! Sign up for our monthly membership here so you can swing by for unlimited washes whenever you want!
