How to Keep Your Car Warm in Winter
The Benefits of Window Tinting and Repair
As temperatures begin to drop and we move into colder weather, it’s important to keep the state of our auto glass in mind. Window tinting and repair are often associated with the heat-laden days of summer, but keeping auto glass in top form is imperative during the winter months as well.
Let’s begin by looking at the advantages of winter window tinting in Flagstaff.
- During the winter months, the sun sits lower in the sky creating a glare—especially in snow-packed areas. Window tint improves visibility by reducing light reflection, which means a safer driving experience.
- Window tint acts as insulation and traps the heat, from the Arizona winter sun, inside the car—thus reducing fuel costs by avoiding the need to “blast the heat.”
- Sun, no matter how weak, ages the interior of our car. Think of window tint as SPF to protect the interior of the vehicle and your drivers and passengers from the sun’s harmful rays.
- Tint provides an extra layer of privacy and protection. When the car is chock-full of gifts of cheer, window tint keeps parking lot thieves from having a clear view of our holiday haul.
Why is windshield repair important during the winter months?
It is of the utmost importance to inspect and repair auto glass before winter descends upon us. Dipping outside temperatures, coupled with the artificial heat inside of a vehicle, can cause the smallest of auto glass chips to seize and crack—owing to the tension of opposites. Cracks also allow cold air to enter the vehicle which leads to higher fuel costs associated with heating the car’s interior.
Be sure to have chips repaired as soon as they occur. Repairable chips can become irreparable cracks—which then requires windshield replacement.
