Blocks Heat & UV Rays
The scorching heat in Corona can be unbearable at times. The good thing about window tinting is that it makes your vehicle feel 35-60% cooler. That’s welcome news during the summer months. You will save money on gas because you won’t need to run the cooling system as much. The left side of your face is more likely to be damaged by harmful UV rays. Fifty-three percent of skin cancers in the United States are located on the left side of your body due to the sun light penetrating the driver side window, refracting and wreaking havoc on your skin. The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends tinting because it blocks 99.9% of UV rays.
Safety & Glare
When window tint is properly installed, it is placed on the inside of the window. Thieves are less likely to break into your car because they cannot see the valuables inside. They also have an annoying layer of film to penetrate if they are to be successful. During an intense collision, your windows may shatter into a million small pieces. Tinting is adhered to the window and helps hold all those the glass in place. Driving while the sun is setting and rising can be dangerous. When vehicles drive with their high beams, your visibility is extremely limited. Tint blocks 50% of the glare from oncoming traffic and the sun.
The sun is earth’s biggest star. Our sun is 4.6 billion years old. It takes 8 minutes and 20 seconds for sunlight to reach the earth. While everybody loves the sunshine, it can certainly cause damage to your skin, dashboard and vehicle upholstery. Older cars often have faded seats and dash due to continued sun exposure. Window tinting changes all that. Whether you want to keep your car for decades or plan on trading it in, it’s a good look to have a car that looks the same as it did when you first drove it off the lot.
If you’re new to window tinting, it’s important to familiarize yourself with the terminology. VLT is an acronym that you will hear often. It refers to the visible light transmission. In other words, how much light can penetrate your vehicle. VLT is expressed in percentages. The lower the percentage, the darker the tint. A tint with a 30% VLT is darker than a tint with 70% VLT. A 20% VLT will block 80% of light. In California, any percentage of VLT tint can be installed on the rear windshield and rear side windows. A 4-inch non-reflective tint can be applied to the front windshield of a sedan. The front side windows must allot for at least 70% VLT.
