Glare Reduction

Perhaps the most evident benefit of car window tinting is glare reduction. The dark film on the windows significantly reduces sun glare when you’re driving. Even if you wear sunglasses when driving or use your car’s sun visors to block out the sun, it can still cause difficulties when driving. By adding an extra layer of sun protection, you have less distractions on the road, thus keeping you and others on the road safer.

Interior Protection

Though you may not realize it, constant exposure to the sun can have harmful effects on your car’s interior. Over time, leather and other interior finishes will fade, crack, and wear down with consistent sun exposure. Tinted windows help slow this process by preventing some of the sun’s harmful rays from damaging your interior. 

Skin Protection

Speaking of protecting things from the sun, your skin is exposed to the sun frequently when you’re driving. From road trips to work commutes and everyday errands, time spent in the car adds up to many hours on end. More often than not, your skin will be exposed to the sun’s UV rays during those hours, which could increase your risk for skin damage. By getting your windows tinted, you have an added layer of protection from those rays during your time in the car.

Temperature Control

Cars can become unbearably warm, especially in a humid, warm climate like ours. Nobody likes to get into a hot car that’s been sitting in the sun for hours just to sweat through your shirt during your car ride. One way to minimize that heat buildup is with tinted windows. The dark film reflects sunlight away from your car, thus keeping it cooler than normal windows, which allow the sun to penetrate the interior easily.

Fuel Efficiency

Building from the last point, a secondary bonus to reduced temperature inside the vehicle is improved fuel efficiency. When the interior of your car is cooler, you don’t have to use your AC system as frequently. Because most AC systems need gas to function, the less you use it, the better your fuel economy will be!

Crime Deterrence

Another one of the primary benefits that people think of frequently is crime deterrence. Normal car windows give potential criminals an easy look at what’s inside your car — exposed laptops, purses, phones, wallets, and so much more could convince a criminal to break into your car without a second thought. If, on the other hand, your windows are tinted, criminals will be much less likely to break into your car without being able to see what’s inside.

Improved Appearance

When thinking of exterior appearance, tinted windows can drastically change the aesthetics of a car without requiring much work at all. In addition to all the practical benefits of tinted car windows mentioned above, they flat out look cool. If you’re looking for an affordable, stylish upgrade to your car’s exterior, window tinting is the way to go.
