Should I Get My Windows Tinted in the Winter?

When you think about window tint, does a particular season come to mind? At Ziebart, many customers come into our stores in the summer months for window tint to help reduce heat in their vehicle and to improve their visibility while driving. There's never a wrong time to get your windows tinted, but you may want to consider having it done in the winter. Here are some of the benefits:

Improve Your Visibility and Reduce Glare

While you may not need to wear your sunglasses as much – or at all – during the winter months, the sun is actually lower in the sky than it is during the summer. This causes glare to still affect your sight, especially when there's snow on the roads since light reflects on white surfaces. Having your windows tinted will reduce glare and light reflection.

UV Protection

Not only do ultraviolet (UV) rays from the sun fade and discolor the interior of our vehicles due to constant exposure, but they also lead to an increased risk of eye and skin damage. Our window tint provides up to 99% UV ray protection, making sure you're shielded from the unseen dangers of the sun during your commute.

Security

During the holidays especially, you want to make sure the gifts you've shopped for and other valuable items in your car stay there until you're able to get them where they need to be. Having tinted windows can be beneficial for this, as it'll help keep lurking eyes away from your vehicle.
