Why Get Your Windows Tinted?

No matter how much or how little you might drive your vehicle, it’s a good idea for you to consider getting your windows tinted. There are several great reasons for doing so that go well beyond general visual appeal. Here at Sun Devil Auto, we’re all about improving the lives of our customers and their overall automotive experience.

Lower the Heat

Tinted windows are especially great during the hottest months of the year when the inside of your vehicle can feel like an oven. A premium quality film over your windows helps to lower the interior temperature and protects your seats, dashboard, wood trim and carpets from the premature aging caused by the sun’s harmful UV rays.

Save Energy

By installing window tinting and keeping the inside of your car cool, it means you don’t have to crank up the air as much; simply rolling down your windows might be enough to keep you and your passengers cool. This translates into energy and gas savings, which we’re sure you’ll love.

Built-in Sunscreen

Just as you don’t want to be exposed to more of the sun’s rays than necessary while at the pool or other outside locations, the same applies to being exposed to the sun inside your car. If you do a lot of driving in the daytime, this can equal a lot of exposure. Window tinting acts as a sunscreen to protect your skin and your overall health.

Better Security and Safety

While you can always put your items in the trunk for safekeeping, there might be times where you forget to reposition valuables, or you might not realize there’s something in your car you should hide from prying eyes. With window tinting, it’s harder to see inside your vehicle, which can significantly reduce your chances of becoming a victim of a car break-in.

Taking Care of Your Tinting

Now that you know a bit more about the reasons to consider window tinting, it’s time you learn how to take the best care of your new tinting. Immediately after your tinting is installed, you’ll want to leave your windows up for a solid 48 hours to make sure the film properly adheres to the windows. You’ll also want to use a soft paper towel or cloth and a non-ammonia cleaner to give your windows a good wipe down.

Quality Matters

Not all window tint films are created equal. Look for premium quality films that cut back 99% of dangerous UV Rays and 50% – 65% of incoming heat and that come with a nation-wide limited lifetime warranty.
