Top 5 Benefits of Having Your Car Tinted
You take care of your car’s engine with regular tune-ups and maintenance, but have you thought about the care of your car’s windows? You may think of window film, also called window tint, as just an aesthetic enhancement, but it also provides long-lasting functional benefits to protect you and your vehicle.
1. Fade Reduction
Your car is a valuable asset that you want to last as long as possible. Having window tinting professionally installed on your vehicle is a great way to protect your investment. Window film blocks harsh sunshine that can fade upholstery and discolor leather and vinyl. It protects car interiors from cracking and warping to keep your car looking newer longer. Window tinting also blocks windshield glare to decrease eye fatigue from direct sun and bright nighttime headlights.
2. UV Ray Blockage
Car window tinting can block up to 99% of the sun’s harmful ultraviolet rays that can accelerate skin aging and cause skin cancer. Even clear window film or a light tint can block out both damaging UVA and UVB rays. Research shows that 53% of skin cancers in the U.S. occur on the left side of the body, which correlates to the driver’s side of a car. For people who drive for extended periods of time, window film protection provides a critical advantage to safeguard against this risk.
3. Solar Heat Rejection
If you’ve battled finding the right level of air conditioning for all of your passengers, window tinting can help resolve that dilemma. Depending on the grade, window film can block anywhere from 35-65% of the solar heat that builds up in a car. You can balance climate and comfort for everyone and cut down fuel consumption from air conditioning overuse.
4. Shattered Glass Protection
The safety benefits of installing window film on your car cannot be underestimated. Window film is designed to keep glass from shattering if an object hits it. In the event of a car accident, passengers are protected from flying glass shards and from being ejected through windows. Additionally, thieves will find it difficult to break through tinted glass and get into your car.
5. Privacy and Security
Window tinting comes in a wide range of shading to provide a level of privacy for you and your passengers as you go down the road. When you park the car, you can walk away and know that prying eyes cannot see your valuables inside.
The benefits of installing window tint include more than simply improving the look of your car. It can add to your peace of mind when you want to protect your vehicle and those who travel with you.

Providing an abundance of natural light in your buildings is a great way to conserve energy. But sunlight can create excessive heat and uncomfortable hot spots, fade valuable furnishings, create computer screen glare and contains harmful UV rays. Whether your buildings are high-rise or low-rise, Sun Control Window Films help you to control energy costs and provide occupants with a more comfortable environment.
Window films reject as much as 83% of the sun’s heat by causing it to bounce off of the glass and back out away from the building. This can translate into a savings of one ton of air conditioning for every 100 square feet of glass filmed. Regular glass without film will allow the heat to pass through to the interior spaces where it accumulates. This accumulated heat is often referred to as heat load and must be pumped out of the building by the HVAC system. Window film reduces the heat accumulation which equates to less energy needed to power the HVAC equipment.
During the winter the same film will help retain interior heat, reducing heating costs by 20% to 30%. The return on investment is often less than two years.
Window tint is also cost effective for businesses because of the easy installation. Quick installation means there is virtually no disruption of
daily business and an immediate impact on energy savings for both heating and cooling.
