While changing or enhancing the visual look of your car is likely one of the main priorities when considering tinting your car’s windows, there are several other significant benefits to consider as well, along with understanding the application process and after-installation care.
In this article, we will consider the additional benefits of tinted windows, and we’ll look at some FAQ’s from previous customers.
While all the glass panels of a car are designed to break in a safe way, the repercussions of the “industry standard design” result in a multitude of glass shards which can be a danger for the car’s occupants after an accident. With window tinting film installed, the glass will break in an even safer manner, shattering as designed, but kept in a single sheet using the tinting film.
As window tint reflects light from entering your car, it also prevents thieves from looking into your car. This provides a reduced likelihood for break-ins and prevents them from spotting any valuables.
Protection From UV Rays
Particularly important if you live in a warm region that receives a lot of sunlight, window tinting film can reflect harmful UV rays and protect the interior and occupants of the vehicle.
Window tinting film can reduce solar energy from entering the cabin by up to 70%, keeping the cabin cooler when parked in the sun, and reducing the strain on air conditioning systems when driving, increasing efficiency and fuel mileage.
Questions to Consider:
- How Dark Should My Tint Be?
- Which Automotive Tint Is Right For Your Vehicle?
- How Long Will My Window Tint Last?
A consultation with your professional installer will inform you as to the best products to use on your window tint film for aftercare. General rule-of-thumb dictates that avoiding ammonia-based products and the use of gentler cleaners will prevent discoloration and fading. Beyond this, using fine microfiber clothes during cleaning can also help.
- How Long Does It Take To Install Window Tint?
The curing and adhesion process is critical to the long-term performance of your window tint, and most shops will ask you to wait 24-48 hours before winding your windows down.
Is It Worthwhile?
In short, while there are several hurdles to clear for properly installed and performing window tint, the long list of advantages makes it worthwhile for millions of vehicle owners worldwide. From visual enhancements to better efficiency from your vehicle, the benefits overwhelmingly offset the cost and installation process.
