The Florida heat can be brutal in the summer months, but car window tinting is designed to improve the comfort of your hot car, including lowering heat, providing privacy and adding style. Here are five reasons to install vehicle window tint.
Reason No. 1: Reduce Heat with Car Window Tinting
Keep your hot car cooler by installing car window tinting.
From July through August, the Sunshine State’s daily temperature can range between 73 degrees and 95 degrees. Researchers found that a car parked in the hot sun in 95-degree weather can reach up to 116 degrees within one hour. The dashboard can get even hotter, reaching 157 degrees in an hour. But auto tint is designed to lower that heat by rejecting the sun’s solar energy and heat-producing infrared rays.
In fact, 3M™ Automotive Window Film, Ceramic IR Series has the ability to reject up to 95 percent of infrared rejection and 66 percent of total solar energy. This can dramatically reduce the feel of the sun on your skin while driving down the road. It also can make a difference in a parked car in the hot sun.
3M tested it’s Crystalline film and found that tinted cars, parked in the sun all day, can be up to 26.5 degrees cooler than those without auto tint. 3M also proved that cars can get cooler with air conditioning when they are tinted with Crystalline. According to 3M, cars with auto tinting can be 26.5 degrees cooler with the A/C on versus those without window tint.
Automotive window tinting can make a difference in the comfort of your car by reducing heat.
Reason No. 2: Reduce Glare with Car Window Tinting
Car window tinting can also reduce glare and help keep drivers safer.
Glare is caused when the sun is just above the horizon, either before sunrise or before sunset, and able to shine directly into the driver’s eyes. In some cases, glare can be blinding – causing safety concerns on the road.
Auto window tinting, especially the darker limo tint, can help protect drivers from glare. In fact, 3M™ Automotive Window Film, Ceramic IR Series films can reduce up to 93 percent of the glare from blinding sunlight. The films offer low visible light reflectivity and no mirror-like appearance that can disrupt your view of the road.
Reason No. 3: Block UV Rays with Car Window Tinting
Car window tinting can protect you, your passengers and your ride’s interior from the harmful effects of the sun’s ultraviolet rays.
UV rays are the leading cause of skin cancer, according to the Skin Cancer Foundation. Each series of 3M window tinting comes with UV blocking technology. The tints are constructed with multiple layers of thin film, each scientifically designed to deflect the sun’s unwanted rays away. In fact, the Skin Cancer Foundation suggests window film as an option to help block UV rays.
UV rays also are known to cause fading furniture and floors. The harsh rays, over time, can damage a vehicle’s interior, including its dashboard. Add a layer of protection on your car with auto tint.
Reason No. 4: Add Privacy and Safety with Car Window Tinting
Car window tinting can limit the view from the outside in as well as provide an additional layer of security for your vehicle.
Protect what is important inside your car by blocking the view from others. 3M offers several series of window films, including privacy films that are darker tint shades.
3M™ Scotchshield™ Automotive Security Window Film, Crystalline Series offers an added layer of protection to your car. After impact, the window film prevents shattered glass from flying everywhere. Instead, the tinting holds the shattered glass together. This can help prevent unwanted burglaries or break-ins as well as assist with projecting people and property during a car accident.
Reason Nov. 5: Car Window Tinting is Backed by a Warranty
When you have car window tinting installed by a reputable 3M™ Authorized Dealer like JAG Window Tinting & Treatments, the installation and film is protected by a warranty for as long as you own the vehicle.
3M films are backed by the manufacturer and have one of the leading warranties in the industry. This warranty means your vehicle’s car tint is not going to bubble, crack, turn purple, raise or stop working. This is so you can rest assured that your investment will last.
In addition, JAG Window Tinting & Treatments offers its own “JAG Scratch Protection Policy,” which protects the film from scratches. Should a dog scratch or a seatbelt nick the film, JAG Window Tinting & Treatments will remove and replace the auto tint at no cost. No nearby competitor offers this type of protection. If a customer gets all of his or her windows tinted, two scratch protection policies are offered. For those who only get the Driver / Passenger windows tinted, only one scratch protection policies are offered.
