In the warm summer months, we slather on some sunblock, wear sunglasses, and big sun hats, and whatever else we can do to protect ourselves and our little ones from the harmful Ultraviolet (UV) Rays. When fall and winter come, we put the sunblock away and trade our sun hats for warm and fuzzy winter hats. Even when it is cold, UV Rays are still a concern. The rays can bounce off water, snow, sand, et cetera and go through glass including your car windows. That is why tinting your vehicle’s windows is very important, even when it is below freezing outside. Window tinting blocks ninety-nine percent of UV Rays, which is why The Skin Cancer Foundation recommends window tinting to help prevent the many different types of skin cancer.
Along with blocking UV rays, window tinting retains heat in the very cold months of the year. Keeping most of the heat from the sun in the car also helps cut the usage of gas since you do not have to have the heat running on high. In the long run, this can help save you a few bucks at the gas pump.
With the many trips to grandma’s house, and errands for family dinners and shopping, keep your littles ones safer by having the windows of your car tinted.
