The Oven Effect

We all know the dangers of leaving anything living inside of our vehicles in any level of heat. In the solar heat of summer, even plants can wither quickly. And if it’s hot enough outside, parking in the shade doesn’t always seem to reduce the heat inside your ride much.

That’s because you’re at the mercy of a miniature greenhouse effect. After the solar heat enters your windshield, the heat is absorbed into the objects that make up your car’s interior like your steering wheel and seats. That heat gets released back into the air with conduction and convection, turning your car into an oven-like pocket of heat.

And that heat can rise rapidly when exposed to full solar shortwave radiation. According to experts, a generic gray car interior will heat a car by about 19 degrees in 10 minutes, 29 degrees in 20 minutes, and over the course of hours, as much as 50-55 degrees.

Keeping Your Cool

The best way to keep your car cooler on even the hottest summer days is with ceramic automotive window tinting. Using nano-ceramic technology, this film rejects as much as 66% of the sun’s total solar energy as well as 95% of solar infrared heat, making for a cooler, more comfortable ride. 3M film is sold and installed only by authorized 3M installers so you know you’re getting the best quality installation every time.

These are just a few more reasons to invest in ceramic auto window tinting services:

  • Low visible light reflectivity value
  • A clear view
  • No mirror effect
  • Limited lifetime warranty
  • Reduced glare, even against the winter snow
  • Reduced interior damage and fading
