Sure, it may look cool and stealth and boost your confidence when you’re behind the wheel, but there are actually some good reasons to get your windows tinted.

It can be a controversial topic and there are laws in place to prevent windows from going too dark in an effort to maintain the safety of everyone on the road but the fact remains, there are positives to car tinting Brampton.

If you have been sitting on the fence about getting window tinting, consider the safety aspect. According to new provincial laws that went into effect last summer for new vehicles, the front windshield must stay un-tinted and the maximum tint allowed on windows to the right and left of the driver is 30 per cent but there is no limit on the back windows and honestly, any amount of tint you get on your windows will help cut down on glare and UV exposure.

Depending on the tint shade and type you choose, anywhere from 40 per cent to more than 70 per cent of thermal energy can be blocked out through window tinting Brampton, and that means the interior of your vehicle will not only stay cooler during the warm spring and summer months, you, your passengers and the interior of your vehicle will be shielded from the harmful rays of the sun. Since the inside your car is made with various upholstery, leather, vinyl and plastic finishes and components, you want to do everything you can to maintain their appearance and keep them in great shape. It will keep your car better preserved on the inside, which is important if you are thinking about reselling it sometime down the road.

Professional window tinting services for your truck, car, SUV or van means a lot less glare that can easily distract you from keeping your eyes on the road and paying attention to all the vehicles and pedestrians around you. Not only is harsh glare from the sun dangerous, it’s also uncomfortable and can really throw off your concentration and enjoyment while driving.

This protection from glare doesn’t just apply to sunshine. Driving at night can also be hazardous but new window tint film applications can really help cut down on the intensity of blinding headlights from oncoming traffic.

Another benefit to tinted windows goes beyond road safety to include personal safety and the protection of your valuables. Because a film is applied to the glass on your vehicle to achieve the tinted effect, it acts as an extra level of protection in the case of a collision or damage incurred from a freak of nature, like tree branches or other heavy debris from crashing through the windows. That tinted film can actually help hold the glass together and prevent it from shattering so easily. It’s just more security for the tempered glass and laminated glass surfaces in your vehicle.

The other safety benefit of tinted windows is that it makes it that much more difficult for thieves to check out the belongings in your car. If you’ve left your shopping in the back seats or your mobile phone in the front seat, you don’t have to worry so much about it being easily spotted because the window tint will provide a layer of darkness to keep your valuable items hidden from plain sight. There’s also the added benefit of enhanced privacy that only window tinting can provide when you and your passengers are inside.

Probably the most valuable and important benefit to getting the windows on your vehicle tinted is regulating the temperature of your car’s interior. This will be of particular interest to you if you happen to own a black vehicle. Dark coloured cars can become five degrees hotter than lighter colour vehicles just because they conduct more sunlight. You may be thinking “So what, I’ll just crank up the air conditioning!” The major problem with that solution is that you’re going to be burning through gas at a higher rate. Just like with running any of the other bells and whistles in your vehicle, the air conditioning system will sap power from your car and require more gas to keep it all going. Simply put, running the air conditioning system throws off your gas mileage and just ends up costing you more in the long run. So why not invest once in window tinting and enjoy a cooler, safer and more comfortable ride?
