Did you know that there are six different types of window tints available to car owners in 2023? From basic dyed tinting film to advanced heat-rejecting ceramic tint, car owners in North America have multiple ways to protect the interior of their valued rides.

But, regardless of which type of tint film you select, they all serve a similar primary purpose – protecting the interior of your vehicle.

Whether it’s for enhanced privacy, security, or protection and comfort, making the decision to NOT tint your windows can lead to some costly impacts.

Here are the top 5 things that can happen to the interior of your car – without window film installed.

Issue #1 – Increased Risk of Theft

A growing trend in new car sales is the addition of privacy glass to the rear windows. While many consumers think that this is window tint – the truth is that it’s just a pigment put into the factory glass.

The problem is – privacy glass is only available from the manufacturer on rear windows. Window tinting the front windows (in states where it’s permitted by law) provides an additional layer of privacy by limiting the visibility into your car.

Without tint, it can be easier for people outside to see into your vehicle, potentially compromising your privacy and security.

Issue #2 – Increased Glare & Brightness

A major pain point for most drivers is having to squint when the sun is shining through the side windows. This problem gets worse during sunrise and sunset hours, when the glare can significantly reduce visibility while driving, and potentially lead to a traffic accident.

Tinted windows help to reduce glare from direct sunlight, making it easier and safer to drive. Without tint, you may experience increased glare, which can affect visibility and potentially cause discomfort or strain on your eyes.

Issue #3 – Damage to Your Interior

Ultraviolet Radiation is great for plants to grow – but it can seriously affect the integrity of your car’s interior. UV is the primary source of cracking dashboards, faded leather, and premature aging of textiles.

Since most professional-grade window films block 99% of harmful UV radiation from penetrating automotive glass, making the proactive decision to install window film can significantly reduce the potential of damage.

Issue #4 – Increased Use of Heater & AC

Another benefit of ceramic window films like KAVACA Ceramic IR and Ultimate IR is the ability to block infrared radiation – which is what causes heat. However, the best films also serve as insulation for automotive glass.

This means that it’s less likely for heat to enter during summer – which reduces the need for constant AC – and heat escaping during winter – which saves your heater from being constantly running.

Issue #5 – Save Energy – Money – and Go Green

In the end, installing a premium window film like KAVACA ceramic tint for cars, trucks, and SUVs is a great way of saving energy consumption for your car.

The more your AC and heater must run, the more electricity or fuel you burn. This leads to higher weekly gas and electrical charging bills. But it also increases carbon emissions across the board.

So – if you really want to make a positive impact on the environment, have a Ceramic Pro Elite Dealer install a luxury window film like KAVACA Ultimate IR to your automotive glass.

KAVACA Ultimate IR is available in multiple VLTs or levels of darkness – from ultra dark limo tint to nearly transparent film. This means that you no longer have to compromise protection and comfort by installing the darkest film possible.
