There are many benefits to tinting your car in the summer, both fashionable and functional. The most obvious functional benefit is that the tints will help protect your eyes from the glaring sun on those sunny summer days. Pair a good set of tints with the right sunglasses and you are good to go. We suggest getting to know all of the reasons to tint your car in the summer so you know what you’re looking for.
Other great benefits include preventing overheating, protecting skin from sun exposure, preventing accidents on the road, enhancing durability of the interior accessories, and looking cool, of course. Let’s look through each benefit of summer tints one by one, starting with the prevention of over heating.
Whether you have air conditioning in your car or not, it is always possible for your car to overheat. The risk is especially high when you are stuck in traffic on a super hot and sunny day. The natural sunlight combined with the running engine are the perfect ingredients for an overheated car. Besides becoming uncomfortably hot, overheating can lead to your car turning off all together – which is the last thing you want while stuck in heavy traffic. Good, dark tints can help prevent this from happening. The dark tints will block over half of the sunlight coming through the windows of your vehicle.
Have you ever noticed that your hands and forearms tan while you drive around in the summer time? It is a great way to get a farmer’s tan. Unfortunately, consistent tanning like this can be very damaging to your skin over time. In the short term it could cause the skin to burn and in the long-term you might see side effects related to permanent skin damage. In the same way that dark tints will help prevent you and your car from overheating, they will restrict sunlight from shining directly onto your skin.
Did you know that window tinting have been proven to reduce car accidents? It’s not surprise considering how a good set of dark, summer tints can reduce the glare and shine of the sun. Imagine driving directly into the sun without tints. Not surprisingly, many car accidents happen this way. Squinting and hoping for the best is not a good option. Safety first – so, get yourself some dark summer tints instead.
If you have leather seats, you will love tints in the summer time. Overheating can damage the leather and other accessories in your car. Intense sunlight can even fade leather if it is a darker color. As a bonus, you won’t have to run your air conditioning constantly because the car will naturally be cooler.
