From all car accessories that are available for purchase window tints may be the most common one. A significant number of car owners decide to tint their car windows and it’s becoming increasingly popular in the recent years. Tinting windows on your vehicle isn’t just an esthetic feature however and it does have certain benefits.

1. Increases your privacy
First of all and perhaps the most common reasons is privacy. Tinted windows prevent (to a certain degree) people from outside of your car and other drivers from looking into your car. It’s actually a great way to make potential thieves think twice about their act. Leaving an exposed cell phone or a laptop at your back seat is often just inviting people to steal it. By tinting your windows you’ll feel at least a bit safer knowing that any valuables in your car aren’t as easy to see.

2. Reduces heat inside of your car
Window film makes the inside of your car cooler. In those warm summer days it does reduce heat generated by direct sunlight which will benefit the inside temperature of your car. Low transparency window tint can reduce heat in your car by up to 70% which is absolutely something you should consider, but be sure to keep in mind the legally allowed tint in your state. Additionally you may even use less energy since your air conditioning won’t have to work so hard to keep your car cool. Direct sunlight can also damage the leather inside your car or at the very least discolor the interior so keep that in mind as well.

3. Blocks harmful UV rays
There’s also a health issue. It’s no secret that being directly exposed to sunlight isn’t a very good idea. A quality tinting film like the 3M product we use can block 99% of harmful ultraviolet rays and keep your skin protected while driving. Driving in direct sunlight can even expose you to sunburns so make sure you keep your sunglasses on and use window tint for protecting other parts of your body. It’s especially important if you suffer from any kind of sun allergies or other skin conditions. 

4. Keeps glass from shattering
In case of a car accident the film can also protect your windows from shattering all over yourself and your car. The film usually holds the little pieces of the glass together even after the window breaks so in case you ever find yourself in an accident you’ll definitely be glad you had tint applied. It’s not something people usually think about in advance but you never know. Broken glass can get in your eyes or scratch your skin so it’s definitely something to consider as well.

Most people just tint their car windows for aesthetics, but there’s definitely more to it. There are quite a few important benefits to having your windows tinted and hopefully by now you understand some of them.
