One of the first things many people think of when they purchase a new car is window tint. Usually there is one reason or another you want tint installed on your car. But you might be surprised at how many added benefits window film can bring to your driving experience. Here are seven reasons to tint your car today!
1. Increase driving comfort
Do you ever struggle to find comfort while driving in the hot summer months? We have all experienced it. At the end of the long work day, excited to get home, you open the door to your car only to be greeted with the extreme heat built up inside from hours of exposure to the sun. Miserably you get inside, desperately turn the A/C on full blast seeking comfort. Meanwhile the Sun’s heat is still pouring in your windows. Eventually the air conditioning brings the temperature inside to a tolerable level, yet the Sun’s rays penetrating through your unprotected glass still bring heat and discomfort to your skin.
This is where window film comes in. Window films from 3M and Solar Gard are designed to reject up to 61% of the Sun’s total solar energy and up to 98% of the Sun’s heat causing infrared rays. This allows your air conditioning to cool your car much quicker, and blocks solar heat from hitting your skin. This not only makes driving a much more comfortable experience, but also increases efficiency. Less A/C use means less strain on your engine, which means a better average MPG.
An important side note: While no matter what you put on your windows, if your car is parked in the Sun all day, it is going to be hot inside. Solar heat penetrates not only through your glass but also eventually through the rest of your car, causing heat buildup. Window film essentially acts as a filter for the Sun.
2. Safer driving
Window film reduces up to 95% of the glare caused from Sun rays, bright white snow, and those annoyingly bright headlights. Window tinting minimizes the effects of these hazards, thus allowing you to focus on the task at hand, making driving a safer experience.
3. Skin Protection… Stay young!
We only use the highest quality window films at King’s Window Tint. Every one of our films reject 99% of the Sun’s harmful UV rays. In fact, the Skin Cancer Foundation recommends our products! Ultraviolet rays are linked to skin cancer and causes your skin to age rapidly. What makes UV so dangerous is that it can reflect off of surfaces and penetrate through your windows at home or in your car and cause damage to your skin. Window tint acts like a sunscreen for your windows, providing an SPF rating of up to 1000!
4. Shatter Protection
In the event of an accident, window film holds shards of glass in place, preventing injury to the passengers inside.
5. Stand out from the crowd
Perhaps the most popular reason for window tint on cars. Professionally installed window film on a car can make a world of difference and set your car apart from others on the road. At King’s Window Tint we keep a large variety of tints in stock so that you can find the perfect film to accent your car.
6. Added Privacy
No more fishbowl look. Thats right, you can sing along to your favorite songs and not feel the eyes from other cars judging you. Window tint comes in many shades restricting the amount of light allowed inside, giving you a measure of privacy inside. This also can reduce risk of theft, because a thief won’t try to steal what they can’t see.
7. Protect your investment
You likely made a considerable investment in your vehicle, so why not keep it looking new for years to come? The combination of heat and UV rays cause irreparable damage to the interior of your car. It causes dashes to crack, and the materials inside to fade and change color. Window tint can protect your interiors by blocking 99% of the UV rays and up to 61% of the solar heat from entering your vehicle.
