Florida Window Tinting: How Window Tint Keeps Your Car Cooler

Car window tinting

Florida window tinting for your vehicle has quite a few benefits, but have you ever heard people talk about how car window tint can keep the interior temperature of your car down? Wondering how that works? Well, that’s exactly what we’re talking about today!

How Car Window Tinting Keeps Your Car Temperature Down

Today we’re going to talk a little bit about the science behind Florida window tinting. More specifically, how tinting the windows of your car can keep the interior temperature of your car down!

Solar Energy

The total solar energy from the sun that we are exposed to here on Earth is comprised of three types of radiant energy: visible light, ultraviolet light, and infrared light.

The light spectrum of the radiation that we receive from the sun here on Earth ranges. We are most familiar with ultraviolet radiation and infrared radiation, but we often confuse the two.

Ultraviolet radiation is the radiation which is harmful to us as humans and causes damage to our skin. Ultraviolet radiation is at one end of the light spectrum. 3% of the total solar energy from the sun is ultraviolet energy.

Infrared radiation is the radiation that produces heat. Infrared radiation is at the opposite end of the light spectrum to ultraviolet radiation. 53% of the total solar energy from the sun is infrared energy.

The effects of ultraviolet and infrared radiation are hard to disconnect from each other because we often feel that the sunburn we experience from ultraviolet light is associated with the heat we feel from infrared radiation. In truth, ultraviolet light cannot be felt.

So, how does Florida car window tinting come into play? 

When a Florida window tinting company like Flying Window Tinting uses high-quality car window tinting films like Llumar, those films are designed to reject heat by rejecting infrared radiation and to protect your skin against sun damage by rejecting ultraviolet rays.

The ability of car window tinting film to reject heat by rejecting infrared radiation is referred to as “IR Rejection”. This heat rejection is measured as a percentage. So, for example, if a  car window tinting film rejects 33% of infrared rays it means that that film is rejecting 33% of the 53% of the total solar energy that comes from infrared rays. So, this film would reduce the overall level of infrared solar rays and reduce the amount of total solar energy.

Florida car window tinting shops don’t just use window films that reduce infrared radiation, though, they use top quality car window tinting films that further reduce total solar energy by rejecting visible light and absorbing a percentage of total solar energy.

In addition to stopping a percentage of infrared rays from passing through the windows of your car, top quality window tint films like Llumar also reject a percentage of ultraviolet rays. The rejection of UV rays then reduces the amount of fading and damage caused to the interior of your car as a result of UV ray exposure.

So, in short, when you choose a reputable Florida car  window tinting company to install your car window tint films, you are reducing the effects of total solar energy on the interior of your car. This is done by rejecting visible light, rejecting UV rays, rejecting infrared rays, and absorbing total solar energy.

Now, choosing a less reputable Florida car window tinting shop almost always means choosing lower quality car window tinting films. Lower quality films don’t just mean that your car’s window tinting film won’t fit well and won’t look great, it also means that those films don’t reduce the amount of total solar energy in the same way that Llumar films do. So, those cheaper films on your car windows may save you a few bucks in the short term, but in the long-run, they can result in damage a lot worse than the few dollars that you’ll save. Your skin will be exposed to higher levels of UV rays, resulting in damage to your skin (possibly even skin cancer), your car interior will be damaged and cracked by UV rays, your car’s air conditioning system will be taxed to the max with increased exposure to infrared rays that increase the interior temperature of your car, and without a reduction in glare provided by Llumar films, you may very easily experience an accident while on the road!

South Semoran Car Window Tint Shop, Flying Window Tinting

Best window tinting shop

If you’ve passed the South Semoran car window tint shop and are trying to find out what it’s called, then you’ve found yourself in the right place! That’s us!

Why Flying Window Tint Is The Best Window Tinting Shop

Located at 187 S Semoran Blvd. in Orlando, Florida, Flying Window Tinting offers the best window tinting services for vehicles of all makes and models.

Opened in 1998, Flying Window Tinting has long been the go-to location for Florida car owners seeking professional window tint film application. Why do people travel near and far to have us install their tinted window film?

We Use Llumar Window Tint Film

Some car of the best window tinting shops in Orlando use cheap window tinting films that you can buy yourself at the local megastore. Here at Orlando Flying Window Tinting in our South Semoran car window tint shop, we only use Llumar window tinting film. The best of the best, Llumar car window film doesn’t just stand up to the heat of the Florida sun, but it also comes with a lifelong warranty that covers parts and labor! Plus, adding Llumar window tint to your car windows will increase your car’s resale value!

Our South Semoran Car Window Tint Shop Only Hires the Best

Where other amateur shops hire anyone and everyone to cut and apply car window tint film, we believe that a good window tint installation requires talent. That’s why we only hire select technicians to work at our shop and we require them to regularly prove the quality of their work to ensure that we are providing you with only the best  window tinting service available. We also regularly spend time with our technicians making sure that they master the most recent application techniques and know about the most recent Llumar window tint products on the market!

We Computer Cut Our Tinted Window Films

Some of the best window tinting shops cut their window tint films by hand and this leads to uneven cuts and films that don’t precisely fit your windows. Here at our South Semoran car window tint shop, we computer cut all of our window tint films to be sure that they fit your car windows and not the general specifications of your car model. This means that your window tint film will cover your windows perfectly and there will be no uneven cut lines at the top or bottom of your windows! It also means that at no point will there ever be a knife near to your car so you don’t have to worry about damage to your car during the installation process.

We Don’t Leave Your Car Windows with Bubbles, Lines, or Imperfections

Because we only use the best window tinting  installation technicians and because we have a professional film installation shop, you never have to worry that yourwindow films are going to have bubbles, lines, or imperfections. Unlike the do it yourself kits that require you to adhere the films yourself and that cheap Orlando car window tint shop that just slaps your window tint films on the windows, we install your films with professional skill using precision tuned tools and we take all the time needed to get your films installed perfectly.

We Are Affordable

We aren’t the cheapest car window tint installation shop because we use only the best window tinting  films and skilled installation technicians, but our services are still priced to fit every budget. We don’t believe that you have to sacrifice every penny you were paid this month to put high quality, professionally installed films on your car windows.

We Are Open Late

Where other car window tinting shops close at 5 or 6 and leave you no time to get your car windows tinted after work, we know that sometimes the evening hours are all you have! That’s why we are open from 9 am to 7 pm every weekday!

Proffessional Window Tinting Cost: Is It Worth It?

Professional window tinting

Professional window tinting cost…it’s something that every potential client asks about here at Orlando Flying Window Tinting, so we thought that we’d address the topic today here on our blog. Is the cost of Professional window tinting worth it?

Professional Window Tinting Cost: The Basics

Like most things in life, you get what you pay for when it comes to Professional window tinting cost estimates. The cheaper your estimate, the lower the quality of the work you have done will be. Of course, that doesn’t mean that you have to choose the most expensive quote for your car’s window tint, but it does mean that you should be wary of the cheapest quote.

When seeking out a quote for car window tinting cost, it’s important to know what you are looking for so that you can get the most accurate quote. What do we mean? Well, before you call or visit a car window tinting location, know the answers to these questions:

  • What are you looking for from your car window tint? Do you want clear tint, dark tint, heat reduction,reflective properties, or protection from UV ray exposure? What are your “must haves”? These will influence the cost of your tint because certain features are more costly.
  • What is the make, model, and year of your car?
  • Does your car already have tinted windows either from the manufacturer or from previous window tinting film? This can influence whether you can tint your car windows (state laws limit the tint percentage of your car windows) and it can influence the cost of your tint if technicians have to remove existing films before installing new ones.
  • Do you want all of your car windows tinted, just the windshield, or some other combination of windows?
  • Are you on a deadline? If you need to “rush” your Professional window tinting job some shops may charge additional fees, some shops may simply be too busy to complete rush jobs, and other shops may do rush jobs without any additional charge.
  • Do you want a car window tint that comes with a warranty? Cheaper car window tinting cost estimates often do not include any type of warranty or guarantee on the tint which can be problematic. It is always best to purchase a car window tint option that comes with a lifetime warranty so that you can protect your investment.

Professional Window Tinting Cost: What You’re Actually Paying For

What do you get when you pay that car window tinting cost? It all depends on the window tinting shop you select. Here at Orlando Flying Window Tinting, we like you to know exactly what you’re paying for when you invest in our car window tint services.

When you select our shop for your Professional window tinting needs, you are paying for:

  • Experienced car window tint installation experts. We don’t trust amateurs to install your car window tint and neither should you.
  • High-quality window tinting film. We don’t use cheap tint film because it just doesn’t look good, doesn’t stand up to the test of time, and it doesn’t offer the same protections that better quality films do. (You can learn more about our window tint options on our site here.)
  • Custom cut car window films cut specifically for your vehicle. We don’t use pre-cut films that are cut to general shapes and sizes, we want your window films to fit like a glove.
  • Guaranteed satisfaction! Orlando Flying Window Tinting guarantees 100% satisfaction on all of our  Professional window tinting jobs. What does that mean? It means that you don’t leave our shop unless you’re absolutely satisfied with your new car window tint films.
  • A lifetime window tint film warranty. We use Llumar car window tint film at Orlando Flying Window Tinting and one of the reasons that we do is because they offer a lifetime window tint film warranty on parts and labor. Other Professional window tinting
  • films only carry a parts warranty, but we chose to use Llumar because we want to give our clients the very best coverage and quality guarantee.

Car Window Tinting Cost: Why It’s Not As Much As You Think

Depending on the features you choose for your car window tint cost estimate, you may feel a little overwhelmed by the total. Of course, the features that you select will influence that cost estimate and you can always work with your car window tinting technicians to find a solution that works with your budget.

Here at Flying Window Tinting Orlando, we keep our prices fair without cutting quality, so you will never find us offering you the cheapest price quote, but you will find our quotes to be affordable.

We know that it’s hard not to choose the cheapest car window tinting cost estimate, but when you break down estimates from shops like ours, you’re really not paying as much as you think.

Take a look at those cheap car window tinting shops in Orlando. You may pay a few bucks less, but what are you getting for that cost? A quick run through an assembly line where pre-cut films are slapped onto your car windows and where you’re sent on your way.

Now take a look at shops like ours where you may pay a little more, how does our service compare? You will get custom cut Professional window tinting films that are carefully applied by technicians with years of experience. You get no bubbles, no creases, no seams, and no gaps. You get window tint film that is legal according to Florida tint laws. You get window tint film and labor that is guaranteed for a lifetime.

So, you tell us…is it worth it to pay a little extra money to get crystal clear window tint films that fit your car perfectly and carry a lifetime warranty? We know that we’d much prefer that kind of service than cheap films that are likely to bubble, turn purple in the sun, and peel and crack! Oh, and did we mention that those cheaper films don’t carry full warranties because they know that their films won’t live up to your expectations.
