Window tinting in the summer is very popular. However, the cold temperatures and the snowy surroundings here in Oswego doesn’t mean you do not need that extra layer of privacy and protection that vehicle window tints give you.
In fact, you might need to be tinting your car windows now more than ever.
IMPROVE YOUR VISIBILTY VS. GLARE FROM THE SUN AND OTHER CARS’ LIGHTS
It’s winter time. You may not feel the sun’s heat compared to the summer, but it is still there. In fact, the sun tends to be lower in the sky during the winter months, therefore, it’s glare can still affect your sight while you’re driving behind the wheel, especially when it’s near or equal your line of sight.
“Glare is intensified by the snow collected on roadside because light reflects on white surfaces. This can seriously make driving during the winter more dangerous and tinting your car windows will help reduce the light reflection.” – Carlos Avila
Just as you wear sunglasses in the winter, tint is like sunglasses for your car and allows you the driver and the passengers to be more alert on the road, and in turn, avoid accidents.
Sun makes your vehicle age!
UV rays also make the inside of your vehicle ‘age’ as well. The UV from the sun will make your upholstery, dashboard, and other wood components be prone to breakage as well.
Save on fuel cost during the winter
During the summer time, tints act as a guard to keep the heat off from penetrating inside the car. One of the main benefits is reducing the heat in the vehicle by blocking the sun’s rays. Did you know that tint retains the heat inside?
Tints act like insulating layers by trapping interior heat inside the car during the winter. When the heat hits your window from the outside, the heat travels through the glass and transfers to the air and other objects that may be in contact with the window. This process is called Conduction.
Accident Glass Safety
Tinted Windows tend to break less. Instead of the window glass shattering everywhere, the tint films keep it together and intact. Broken glass can bring even more harm to the passengers, making it harder to go out the car. Tints also adds thickness to the glass making it stronger, reducing the chances of total wreckage if ever accidents happen.
Secure your belongings inside
With the holiday shopping, everyone is busy buying presents and leaving them in the cars. While majority of the people are enjoying the festive spirits, some still take advantage of the moment and try to ruin it. Tinted window is much harder to peek inside, break, and steal your belongings.

Retaining heat inside your vehicle as a way to save fuel during the winter season really sounds like a good thing for us. We do a lot of road trips to visit our relatives during the holiday season, so something like this could really help us save some extra cash while we stay on the road. I'll definitely use this when I find an auto window tinting expert from the area that can help me get it installed.
I never took into account the fact that the sun is lower in the sky during the winter months which means that its glare can affect our site when we are driving. In that case, getting a car or truck window tinting service even in this season is a good investment for the drivers. Personally, as long as it will contribute to the safety of my family, I will make sure to invest in something that will keep us from being in an accident such as being blinded by the brightness of the road.
