Imagine this: It’s midsummer and the weather is HOT. You’ve just woken up and you need to hurry or you’ll be late for work. You throw on your clothes, grab your bag, swipe something quick from the kitchen, run outside, and quickly jump inside your car, ready to roll. The car is hot and you can barely breath, but you’ve only got another 15 minutes to get to work. So, you push through the stifling heat and put your hands on the wheel, and… OUCH. The wheel almost burns your hands. You can’t possibly drive like this, and now you’re going to be late…
Whether it’s to get to work on time, to pick up your kids from school, to make it on time for a date, or just to have a casual evening out with yourself - when the sun’s beating down on your car all day, it makes it almost unbearable to drive anywhere.
Fortunately, there are ways to solve this and make life a little easier on yourself.
And the best one is tinted windows.
Tinted windows coming in strong.
Before we get into the why and how tinted windows keep your ride cool, let’s make sure we’re all on the same page as to what tinted windows are.
Tinted windows are a product of window tints. This may sound redundant, but what it means is that tinted windows don’t just come that way. Tinted windows are made by placing an additional window tint onto the glass. The tint is a thin film that is precisely placed onto the inside of your glass windows. And it is often made from ceramic.
You can choose how dark or light you want the film to be. But the main thing is that you need to have it properly cut and adhered to your car, otherwise its effects may not work as well.
Now, the benefits.
The first thing that comes to mind when you see or hear about tinted windows is privacy.
If you’ve got darker windows, people can’t see in. Simple as that.
However, there’s more to tinted windows than meets the eye.
Keeping it cool - Window tints can block up to 65% of the sun’s heat. This means, that even when you’re not in your car, the tints are still working. So that when you do get in your car, you can place your hands on the wheel and go. And while you’re driving, the tints will continue to regulate and stabilize the heat entering your car, letting you drive without worry.
Keeping it neat - Tinted car windows don’t just keep the sun off of you, they also keep it off of your car’s interior. Which is a big deal. Because the sun’s rays have the ability to fade materials. When the sun is beating down strong on your car’s interior fabric all day, the material is likely to fade and discolor. As if you took bleach and poured it in your car. But car window tints protect against this, by keeping the sun off your seats.
Keeping it healthy - And, lastly, it’s not just about keeping the sun’s heat out of the car. It’s also about keeping the sun’s rays out. Specifically, harmful UV rays that can cause long term skin damage. Because tinted windows can protect your skin from up to 99% of UV rays.
With car window tints, you can drive safely knowing both your skin and car are being protected.
