Many people think window tinting is purely aesthetic, likely because we often see it on sports cars or luxury cars. But there are actually many functional benefits of window tinting.

1) Reducing fade

After houses, cars are one of the biggest investments we make in our lives. So it’s important to protect that investment. Window tinting is a great way to protect your car’s interior from fading due to sunlight. Whether you have upholstery, leather or vinyl, all three are susceptible to fade from the sun. Window tinting will also protect your car’s interior from warping or cracking caused by the sun’s heat. Plus, it protects your eyes from direct sunlight as well as bright headlights at night.

2) Blocking UV rays

Did you know that window tinting can block up to 99% of harmful UV rays from the sun? UV rays can cause your skin to age faster and, of course, can cause skin cancer. You should consider window tinting especially if you often drive for long periods of time to protect yourself from these risks.

3) Solar heat

Have you ever had trouble getting the right temperature in your car for all of your passengers? Most of us are pretty familiar with this! Installing window tinting can help block 35 to 65% of the solar heat that builds up in your car. That means everyone in your car can be comfortable at the same time, while you cut down on fuel consumption needed to power your car’s air conditioner.

4) Protection from shattered glass

Window tinting is actually designed to prevent shattering when an object hits your window. If you’re in an accident, you and your passengers will be protected from glass shards and being ejected through windows. Tinted windows also make it harder for thieves to break your windows.

5) Security and privacy

One of the best features about window tinting is that it comes in a wide range of shading, so you can choose the level of privacy you want and need while you drive. It’s also a great form of protection for your valuables inside your car while it’s unattended.
