Window Tint Improves Car Performance in Hot Weather

Don’t sweat the hot summer sun. Improve your car’s performance during extreme weather by turning to Turbo Tint for professional automotive window film and installation services.


Feeling the Heat on the Road

Summer is in full swing, and the last few weeks have been scorching hot across the United States. The month of July was the hottest month on record, according to NASA’s Goddard Institute for Space Studies (GISS) in New York. July was 2.1 degrees warmer than the average July between 1951 and 1980.

“NASA data confirms what billions around the world literally felt,” said NASA Administrator Bill Nelson in a statement.


Despite the sweltering weather, many people are still hitting the road for vacations, weekend getaways, or even just daily errands. While the sun is a welcome sight, the heat can take a toll on both the driver and the car. That's where Turbo Tint comes into play.


Heat can weaken your car’s battery and reduce fuel efficiency. Hot weather can increase the air pressure in your tires. Overinflated tires can cause uneven wear and may even increase the risk of a blowout. Engines work harder in hot conditions, and the cooling system has to do more work to keep the engine temperature within a safe range. If your cooling system isn't in top shape, your engine is at risk of overheating when temperatures rise.


The Science Behind Window Tinting

You might wonder how a simple window tint can make such a difference. Well, it's all about the science of heat control. Quality window tint acts like your car's personal pair of sunglasses, blocking the sun's scorching UV rays. These rays are not only harmful to your skin but also heat your car's interior to unbearable temperatures. By blocking these rays, window tinting keeps your car cooler, making it more comfortable. Window tint also helps cut down on glare from the sun and can protect drivers during an accident by holding shattered glass in place.


But investing in window tinting is not just about comfort — it's a long-term strategy for vehicle maintenance. A cooler car means less reliance on air conditioning, which improves gas mileage. Given the rising gas prices, any opportunity to save at the pump is welcome. Additionally, the reduced heat and UV exposure help preserve your car's interior, preventing the upholstery from fading and the leather from cracking.

Window tint regulations vary by state, and violating the regulations could result in a fine of $100 for a first offense. Some states ban dark tints, and others have guidelines on the percentage of the windshield the tint can cover. Evidence suggests window tint that is too dark has the potential to impair visibility, particularly when driving at night, according to AAA. Our technicians understand the legalities of window tint in your area and will ensure you comply with local regulations. We also offer a clear crystalline tint, which is legal throughout the U.S.
