Most of us think of getting our car or truck windows tinted during spring or summer when temperatures are warmer. However, getting your vehicle’s windows tinted actually makes just as much sense during fall and winter.
Glare – Auto tint greatly diminishes the amount of glare coming into your car. During the fall and winter months when we’re sometimes driving directly into the sunrise or sunset, this is a real benefit. Additionally, the sunlight bouncing off the snow in winter can be blinding, and auto tint not only reduces the amount of glare, but also protects your eyes from it.
Energy Savings – Acting as a layer of insulation between your car’s interior and the inclement weather outside, auto tint allows you’ll see the same kind of energy savings in fall and winter that you’d see in summer. Maintaining a consistent interior temperature means you don’t have to use your climate control (heating or air conditioning) as much, reducing energy use. And your windows, especially your rear window, will defrost faster because auto tint warms up faster than glass.
Protection - While the heat from the sun has diminished in fall and winter, the harmful UV rays have not. As a result, the sunshine coming into your car is still just as damaging to your skin as it is in summer. Those same UV rays can also fade your upholstery, carpet and dash, making your vehicle look old before its time. Auto tint filters out up to 99% of these harmful rays, protecting both you and your car’s interior.
Security– In the event of an accident, auto tint stops shattered glass from flying and injuring you or your passengers. Additionally, tinted windows make it harder for thieves to break into your car.
Finally, in addition to all of these benefits, auto glass tinting makes your new car look sleeker and more sophisticated or can give your older model and updated look. So even though we’re heading into cooler weather, getting your vehicle windows tinted is still a great idea.
