During the hot summer months, there is nothing worse than climbing into a car that has been sitting out in the sun. Thanks to the greenhouse effect, the sun’s UV rays enter your vehicle and get trapped inside, basically turning your car into an oven. Luckily, there are several ways you can combat this, including remote car start and window tinting. But which is the best option? Read on to find out.
Remote starters are an innovative technology that allows you to start your car before you get inside. This way, the air conditioner starts running to cool the car down so that it is comfortable and cool when you are ready to get in. Remote starters also help with heating during the winter, giving them versatility in their usefulness.
Having a remote start system can also help to boost the resale value of your vehicle. However, this type of system does have some drawbacks. Letting the car idle while the air conditioner starts running uses up gasoline and puts extra wear and tear on your car’s engine. This leads to more frequent repairs and part replacements, which can cost you a lot more money in the long run.
In addition, these systems can be expensive and difficult to install, resulting in higher costs for professional installation. Finally, remote car start can sometimes put your vehicle at higher risk of theft as it is running unattended and can expose you to the risk of identity theft if your vehicle’s system is targeted by hackers.
Applying window film to tint your car’s windows is a great option for keeping your car cool. The dark tint blocks the sun’s UV rays from ever entering the car in the first place, so it drastically cuts down on the greenhouse effect that causes internal temperatures to skyrocket.
This UV protection has the added bonus of protecting both you and your car’s interior from sun damage over time. Window film is relatively inexpensive and requires no ongoing expenses for upkeep and maintenance. Once installed, either by you or a professional, auto window tint also enhances your privacy and security, as potential thieves cannot see what is inside your vehicle, making it less likely that they will try to break in.
At the end of the day, window tinting is going to offer you the best investment. It stops the problem at its source, rather than simply remedying it after the fact. Plus it’s more cost effective and has fewer drawbacks.
Here at Executive Motorsports, we carry window tinting film from a variety of manufacturers, so you can choose the one you like best.
