Car Air Conditioning: How tinting helps
Lets give your car's AC a break this year! Having window films professionally installed will greatly reduce the amount of time you need to use your AC, by providing you with a significant heat rejection difference at the glass level (up to 65%).
We not only can install window films on the side windows of vehicles but there has been considerable advancements in the film technology in recent years, allowing for ceramic films to rise to the top. We have 70% and 80% ceramic films that can be installed on your windshield that remain very clear but will reject up to 43% of the incoming heat!
Here's an example of 80% windshield film we installed on a new Jeep Grand Cherokee recently. This film rejects 43% of incoming heat and 99% of UV!
How does your AC usage affect your gas mileage?
Running your car's air conditioning is the main contributor to reduced fuel economy in hot weather. Its effect depends on a number of factors, such as the outside temperature, humidity, and intensity of the sun. Under very hot conditions, AC use can reduce a conventional vehicle's fuel economy by more than 25%, particularly on short trips.
