Did you know that the vehicle window tint industry is expected to gross $4.48 billion by 2025 in the United States?
And I know that sounds like a lot of money for a luxury that many people opt-out of. However, most of these people are unaware of the benefits that window tint has to offer.
Plus, tinting your vehicle’s windows can make your life more enjoyable inside your car and even aesthetically.
So, keep reading to learn more about the awesome benefits of car window tinting today!
1. Block UV Rays
It’s no secret that the sun radiates harmful UV rays each day. And overexposure to these rays can cause many different health problems. It can harm your eyes, cause skin cancer, or even age your skin rapidly.
Sadly, research shows that skin cancer is most commonly found on the left (driver’s) side of the body. And thankfully, tinting your windows can reduce the impact of those rays. In fact, most tints can block up to 99% of UV radiation.
Therefore, you have less of a reason to worry about health issues when inside your car. And longer commutes won’t affect you as much as before.
2. Heat Reduction
Along with UV protection, heat plays a vital role in your car’s ability to keep cool. Think about it, the more sun you let inside, the hotter it will be. Thus, your vehicle has to work harder to keep your cabin at a comfortable temperature.
And if your car is working harder, that means you’re spending more money on fuel. So in the long run, installing tint on your vehicle windows could also save you money.
That’s because tint can block 35-65% of solar heat that permeates inside the cabin. If you want more heat blockage, simply select a darker grade of tint.
And in this instance, comfortability and money savings are great benefits.
3. Debris Protection
Car accidents happen every day and are a threat no matter what. And when an untinted window shatters, shards go flying everywhere. Which, in turn, can potentially injure the driver even worse.
However, window tint helps in the event of a crash by keeping the glass from exploding all over the place. The glass stays attached to the tint as it acts as a large piece of tape.
And this also makes it hard to break the glass as well. Meaning, other debris could have a harder time penetrating the film.
So, while many people might not think about it, their overall safety is enhanced when they install window tint.
An untinted car acts as a “fishbowl” for everyone to see inside of. Meaning, everyone has a clear view of what you’re doing the entire time. And as for me, the simple thought of that makes me uncomfortable.
So that’s why window tint can provide you with another level of privacy. And the darker grades almost even allow no visibility inside your car.
This privacy is also great for when you’re not present inside your vehicle and offers a level of security. This will not allow people to see what you have in your interior. And therefore, deters thieves or onlookers from targeting your car for any crime.
5. Reduction of Interior Fading
Have you ever left something outside for a long time in the sun? Well, in my experience, it usually becomes sun-bleached and faded. And the same thing can happen to your car’s interior when left in the sun day after day.
Window tint can block the harsh sun preventing fading on your upholstery, dash, or leather. The sun can also cause other damage like a cracked dash, warping, or melting in extreme conditions.
And if left untinted, this damage can drastically decrease your car’s value. Additionally, interior repairs like these are usually expensive and time-consuming.
So protecting the value of your vehicle by tinting your windows can save you the headache of unnecessary repairs.
6. Glare Reduction
When it comes to driving, you want to take every precaution to be safe on the road. However, sometimes that’s out of your control in instances when there is a bad glare from the sun.
In fact, there have been multiple accidents worldwide due to blinding glares that obstruct drivers’ views. And often, people install window tint after these occurrences to avoid the same accidents.
And that’s why window tint is great for reducing glare for drivers everywhere. This will make the view of roads, signs, lights, vehicles, and pedestrians easier to see.
In my opinion, vehicles look way better and more custom when the tint is installed on them. It’s an added bonus when taking all of the previous benefits into consideration.
Of course, you can pick how dark you want your tint as long as it stays within the boundaries of your state’s laws. And in some cases, different colored tints can be available as well.
Your personalization can help upgrade the look of your car all while being functional as well.
And don’t worry about resell value if you pick something out of the ordinary because the tint is usually easy to remove.
