Imagine being in your car, taking a long road trip with family and friends and the sun is beating down on you. You might be cool in your car, and you might think you’re safe from the heat, but without tinted windows, there’s nothing stopping the heat and harmful UV rays from getting through. Think about it this way: if you’ve been in a car for a while, and the sun is streaming through, on your legs, they’d feel hot, it might be painful, and you’d have no way other than adding a blanket or another layer of clothing to protect your legs. That’s where tinting your windows can help. By tinting your windows, not only will it save your legs from the pain caused by heat, but it’ll help protect you from those harmful UV rays that could easily penetrate un-tinted windows. There are also many great benefits of tinting your windows, and we’ve listed them out below.
One of the reasons people choose to have their windows tinted is because of privacy. After all, it’s your car, and like your house, you don’t want people peeking in, and being a voyeur. What you do in your car is your business. Not only that, but it’ll also help prevent any potential thieves from trying to steal any valuables you might leave inside your car. After all, when they try, you could be in the car, and easily intimidate them away, by simply revealing yourself.
If you’ve had a car for long enough, you’ve probably noticed that the colour of the upholstery has faded. Of course, as with most things, light, heat, and UV rays can “bleach” colours, for a lack of a better word. It’s even more noticeable if there are any spill stains or objects that are permanently fixed to the seats. Essentially, over time the leather and vinyl materials will discolour, and the once bright colours that first drew you to your car will look dull and tired. So, if you tint your windows, you’ll be protecting your upholstery from the sun and its powerful bleaching effect.
One of the worst things that can happen to you while driving is a stone flying into your window and cracking it. Although a crack isn’t much to worry about, over time it could cause the whole window to shatter. Of course, you could easily get those cracks fixed, or replace your windows, but that will take a lot of time and effort. But, if you add tinting to your windows, you’ll be able to protect them better. The film that’s used to tint windows will be able to hold the glass in place in case anything comes flying towards it, or if you somehow wind up in an accident. It’ll protect not only your windows, but you as well, from any shattered pieces of glass that could go flying, should you crash into something.
As mentioned before, the heat of the sun can cause pain to any exposed body parts, and it can especially hurt, inside a car where you can’t really move away. Not only that, that very heat might not even be able to escape, making your air-conditioning unit redundant. And after all, there is a reason greenhouses are made of glass. They let the heat through, but they don’t let it escape. But, with window tinting, there is little chance for the heat to enter your car, and although some heat might be able to filter through, it won’t be nearly as bad as with un-tinted windows.
One of the most important reasons why people would want to tint the windows of their car is for UV protection. UV rays from the sun can be harmful, and while sunlight can provide Vitamin D for our immunity, overexposure to UV rays can actually cause cancer. That’s why when you go to the beach, you need to wear sun lotion. When you’re on holiday in a hot country, you’d wear hats and sunglasses. The same should be said for when you’re on a road trip, and you’re in the car for hours on end. Tinting your windows will save you the hassle of topping up your lotion every three or four hours or wearing a hat the entire ride. So, by adding tinting to your windows you’re protecting not only yourself but your passengers as well.
Do you know why we wear sunglasses while we’re out and it’s sunny? Of course, it’s to protect our eyes from the harsh light of the sun. So, why not do the same for your car? After all, you don’t wear sunglasses while you’re inside a building, so why should you wear them inside your car? If your windows are un-tinted, and you’re driving, you might find yourself squinting from the glare of reflections in other cars, puddles, or store windows. When you add tinting to your windows, you won’t have to suffer the glare. The film will easily deflect them, and you’ll have an uninhibited view, even if you’re driving down a mountain, or through a desert. You’ll be able to appreciate the vista and enjoy the ride. Convinced Yet? If you’re not convinced yet, it’s probably because you’re unsure about the prices and processes. Don’t worry. There are plenty of services available that are affordable and quick.
