May Gray and June Gloom. If you’ve lived in the San Diego area long enough, you know exactly what those phrases mean. Visitors are always surprised to find that May and June are our cloudiest months of the year. For the rest of us, it’s the just way it is, and we like it that way.
But drivers, it’s important to remember that the marine layer isn’t going to protect you from the sun’s cancer-causing UVA rays. Did you know that a whopping 87% of the sun's rays penetrate through clouds, mist, and fog? And on top of that, nearly 53% of skin cancers in the United States occur on the left side of the body. Scientists believe this is because the left is the side most often exposed to UVA rays while driving.
Car window tint blocks 99% of harmful UVA rays
At Audio Shack in El Cajon, we can install the car window tint that will help protect you and your passengers from the sun’s harmful rays. And then, when the sun comes back out, the tint will help keep you cool as well.
Car window tint reduces the interior heat by up to 60%
You know what this means, right? If your tinted windows can block out the sun’s heat by 60%, your air conditioner doesn’t have to work as hard to keep you cool. In that case, neither does your engine, so you can save a little gas money to spend on summertime treats down the road at the Yogurt Mill.
Car window tint protects your upholstery, too
All that Southern California heat and sunlight we get after May Gray and June Gloom season will age your interior upholstery as much as it ages your skin. We’re talking fading, cracking, and warping. Tinting your car windows will help keep that from happening.
Car window tint enhances your safety
Besides protecting your skin from UVA rays, car window tint can reduce the dangerous glare that distracts and momentarily blinds you while you drive. Additionally, car window tint prevents your windows from shattering on impact in the event of an accident, giving you and your passengers an added layer of safety.
And…well…tinted car windows look great, too
Let’s face it. There’s a little bit of vanity in all of us. We want to be safe, of course, but don’t we also want our cars to look great? Without a doubt. Window tint adds a touch of class and an air of mystery to your car. Plus, tinted windows provide the privacy that allows you to rock out to your favorite Miley Cyrus tunes without looking like a fool and ruining your metalhead deathrocker reputation.
