Window Tinting: Three Benefits Of Auto Glass Window Tinting You Don't Know About

My parents told me that when I was a little kid, all I ever asked for on my birthday and other holidays was toy cars! I do remember having fun playing with them, but they have told me many funny stories about how obsessed I was with them. When I was finally able to buy my first car after I turned 16 and got my driver's license, I really had fun putting aftermarket parts on it and customizing it. However, when something important needed repaired on it, I had no idea how to do it! I took learning more about cars as a challenge, and I have studied up on how to do my own maintenance and even perform small repairs over the years since. I want to share my knowledge on a blog and help other people realize that learning about their cars can really be fun!

Window Tinting: Three Benefits Of Auto Glass Window Tinting You Don't Know About

As far as window tinting is concerned, most people are only aware of two benefits: enhanced privacy and improving a vehicle's curb appeal. However, auto glass window tinting has numerous other benefits that most people have yet to recognize.

As a result, a fair number of motorists don't see the need to have their vehicle's windows tinted. However, if you have been wondering what benefits you can enjoy by tinting your car windows, here are three essential benefits you should know.

Blocking Harmful UV Rays

Sunlight contains ultraviolet rays, which are harmful to human skin. UV rays are a type of electromagnetic radiation that affects human skin in various ways, such as accelerating the rate of skin aging, causing skin burns, and in the worst-case scenario, leading to skin cancer.

Considering the amount of time people spend in direct sunlight exposing their skin to UV radiation, it would be best if you could find a way to minimize your exposure to UV radiation.  One of the best ways to minimize UV radiation is by tinting your car windows so that when you are driving, the tint blocks out the UV radiation.

Several types of window tinting, such as ceramic tint, carbon auto tint, and metalized window tinting, can block out up to 99% of ultraviolet rays. Thus, while you are in the car, the window tinting can minimize the chances of a motorist contracting skin cancer due to ultraviolet radiation.

Shatter Proofing

Though auto glass windows are fairly resistant to shattering when struck by objects, it would not hurt to add an extra layer of protection to the glass. Window tinting is a subtle yet effective way to enhance a window's shatterproof capabilities.

After installing window tinting, the tint material acts as a thin layer between an object and the glass. As thin as the tint film may be, it will still absorb some of the impact force when an object hits the window. Thus, by absorbing some of the impact force, the tint film reduces the amount of force that reaches the glass. Hence, there is a chance that the glass may not shatter, and you won't have to spend money on a new car window.

Maximizing Battery Life

When heating a car's interior using its air conditioning, no battery power is utilized because the heat is drawn from the vehicle's engine. However, when you are cooling the vehicle using the AC, your car battery gets utilized. It can get extremely hot during the summer, and thus you often have to run the vehicle's AC for extended periods, which drains the battery.

However, if you install auto glass window tinting on your vehicle, the tint will reflect most of the heat away. Thus, the tint will help you keep the interior of the vehicle cooler, and thus you won't have to drain the battery by constantly cranking up the AC to provide cool air.
