Window Tints: Learn the Benefits of Tinting Your Car Windows

There are a whole lot of "shoulds" in life. Especially in adulthood, we spend what feels like the majority of our brainpower on thinking through the things we should and should not do. What about what we want? Isn’t that important, too?

At QWIK Auto Center in San Diego, we believe what you want should have more of a priority in your life. That’s why we’ve decided against telling you why you should tint your car windows and instead focusing on why you’ll want to tint your car windows.

There’s no reason you should want the following benefits of tinted car windows, but if you do…we can help.

You want to keep cool and save money

Tinted windows can block anywhere from 35% to 65% of the solar heat that builds up in your car. This means your engine doesn’t have to work as hard to keep your AC cool. So, in the end, window tint keeps you cool and you saves you gas money. We’re pretty sure everyone wants that.

You want to stay healthy

Did you know that 53% of skin cancers in the US occur on the left side of the body? This pattern supports the theory drivers are exposed to more UVA rays coming in through their driver’s side window. The good news is that tinted windows in your car don’t just block heat; they also block 99% of harmful UVA rays.

You want to protect yourself and your passengers

Glare reduces your ability to see clearly, increasing your chances of an accident. Tinted windows provide safer driving conditions by significantly reducing hazardous glare. Additionally, in the event that you do have an accident, the film on tinted car windows helps prevent the shattered glass from flying. The shards stick to the film instead.

You want to sing along with Taylor Swift in private

Having your car windows tinted gives you more privacy than naked windows. This means you can wear gothy black lipstick and a metal spike through your lip and still sing “Love Story” along with Taylor Swift while you drive – without ruining your reputation for being scary and mean.

You want to protect your interior and your belongings

When you tint your car windows, it’s not just you and your passengers that you’re protecting from the sun’s harmful rays; it’s also your car’s interior. Professionally installed tinted windows can help reduce the fading and discoloration of your upholstery. It can also help keep your valuables out of sight, thereby reducing the risk of break-ins.

Oh, and also, we know you probably want to look cool, too. We can help.
