There are many benefits to tinting your car windows, and even the windows of your home and office. So what is the purpose of tinted windows?
Benefits of Auto Window Tint
- Protect yourself from sun damage
Many people may not realize or put much thought about side windows on your vehicle do not protect your skin against the sun. Especially the mountain UV rays of Montrose, Colorado, you want to always protect yourself from the damage the intense sun rays have on your skin. Did you know studies have found increased prevalence of left-sided cataracts and of skin cancer of left side of the face and on left arms in countries where the steering wheel is on the left side of the car, and more on the right side of the body in countries where the steering wheel is on the right side? While wearing long sleeves and sunglasses when driving can be done while driving without window tint to protect your skin to the fullest extent, you can have your side windows treated with quality tint to block those harmful UV rays by up to 99%.
- Keep Your Cool
Tinting your car with the right window tint can reduce the heat inside your car by up to 60% during those summer months. You can help keep the heat out and keep your cool in with quality window tint.
- Better Driving
Driving with the sun shining directly in your face isn’t just annoying, but it can be deadly! Car window tint will shield your eyes and prevent glare from extreme light.
- Avoid Interior Cracking
While we love sunshine, it’s unfortunately not good for your car. One of the best ways to prevent dash and leather-seat cracking is to protect it from the sun’s UV rays with auto window tinting. The window tint reduces the amount of sun rays entering your vehicle and reflects it away, keeping your car’s interior cooler.
- Lower the Risk of Theft
Window tint lowers the risk of someone breaking into your car because it reduces visual exposure of any valuables you may have left in your vehicle.
Benefits of Home and Office Window Tint
- Energy Efficient
According to estimates from the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE), your home and office windows account for as much as 40% of your annual heating and cooling costs. Tinting your residential or commercial windows can help reduce energy costs for the average building by 5-15%.
- Reduce Glare
Direct sunlight is not a friend of a computer screen or TV screen. Commercial window tinting can help reduce glare in computer screens, which studies have found increased productivity. Residential window tinting can help reduce glare in TV screens within the home. We’re not sure if studies have found any of this to be true, but reduced glare in the TV screens can account for less irritability in the home… especially for NFL Sunday’s… (Go Broncos!)
- Improved Comfort and Health
Nobody likes to be too hot. Window tint can help improve the comfort of both the home and office. Stabilizing the temperature can help keep the occupants inside happy, healthy, and productive. It can also protect your skin against sun damage if you sit where the sun touches.
Quality window tint and help protect a window from shattering. The darker and reflective tints can help avoid break-ins. Valuables inside aren’t visible, and when you can’t see how many people are inside could keep thieves from taking the chance of breaking in.
- Interior Fading and Cracking
We love the multi-purpose and benefits of home and business window tinting. Quality window tint protects the interior from the harsh UV sun rays. This means you can avoid your hardwood floors from fading, your leather furniture from cracking, and your wood furniture from fading.
