Advantages of Tinting of Car Windows and How to Do It

There are simply so many advantages of tinting of car windows, and you can easily learn how to do it. Millions of South Africans enjoy the many benefits of window tint treatments every day. If you would like to learn more about the many benefits of having your vehicle’s windows tinted, then this article will shed light on this popular topic.

South Africa has been blessed with very enviable climates, but the African sun has been known to be a scorcher during the hot summer months. Spending a lot of time in your vehicle, and driving around small children and pets you need to take precaution to protect your family from the devastation of the South African summer sun. Investing in car window tinting will help you to limit sun exposure to the passengers of your vehicle. Studies have shown that merely by adding a thin sheet on your vehicle’s windows, you could block as much as 99% of harmful rays from entering the vehicle.

There are other obvious advantages of tinting of car windows as well, such as security aspects. Making your vehicle’s windows darker will make it that much more difficult for outsiders to look into your vehicle. Opportunistic smash-and-grab criminals that troll robots and parking lots looking for valuables lying in plain sight in the car will find it difficult to identify any of your valuables. This makes the chances that you will be a victim of smash-and-grab crime that much less. This benefit alone would justify the investment in itself.

Save Money When Tinting Car Windows

If you are still unconvinced as to the many advantages of tinting of car windows, then perhaps learning that you can save money after investing in this technology will help make up your mind. The way that window tinting can help you to save money is by keeping the hot summer sun out of the car. This will help to keep the temperatures inside the car cooler than what it would have been with plain windows. This in turn will require your air conditioning to work less hard, which will have a direct impact on your fuel usage. This will help you to gain more kilometres on a tank of petrol which will directly impact your savings.

If you want to find out how to do car window tinting by yourself, then read on. The first decision you will be presented with will be to decide what type of window tint you want. There are many different shades of tint with outward appearances, which includes reflective, flat, mirrored and metallic, to name only a few.

Clean the windows before application, then measure and pre-cut the film. Unroll the film onto the inside of the window with the liner side up. Using caution, make use of a razor knife to approximate the size of the film and trim it accordingly. Always cut the film leaving up to five centimetres on each side in order to ensure that the entire window will be covered by the film.

Opt for Professional Car Sound Installation or DIY?

Many people believe that saving up for the best car sound system is the only expense they have to make provision for, only to realise that once they receive the sound system, that it needs to be installed first. While going at it alone has its advantages, such as saving on your installation costs, it certainly has its downside too. Firstly, making heads or tails of the installation instructions could be too stressful for the amount of trouble it will be, and the bit of money you might save.

Secondly, if you try to take on the installation of your sound system on your own, you may end up buggering your car’s system and other aspects of the vehicle. This could lead to a lot of annoyance and stress, and may even lead to you having to spend money on fixing the problems this creates, defeating the purpose of trying to save money. Lastly, if you attempt to install the sound system to your car on your own, you may end up causing damage to the system and void your warranty altogether. This quickly proves that going the DIY route may just not be worth it in the end.
