6 Reasons Why Window Tinting Will Make Your Ride More Enjoyable

Auto owners review many ways to improve their automobiles and protect them. Many aftermarket products offer great protection and improve the way automobiles look. Auto tinting is a great product that improves the aesthetics of the vehicle and improves the vehicle. Auto owners can choose from a variety of tinting levels and designs. By reviewing how window tinting can make their automobiles more enjoyable, auto owners can see why it is a great service and a must for all their vehicles. 

1. Blocking Heat from Inside the Car

Auto tinting can block the heat from coming into the car and stop the dashboard from cracking. When getting back into the car on hot days, the auto owner won’t experience excessive temperatures in their vehicle. The grade of the tinting determines how well it blocks out heat and prevents heat transfer. Auto owners can find more information about auto tinting by contacting a service provider now. 

2. Giving You Better Privacy

The right level of auto tinting gives the auto owner heightened privacy inside their automobile. They won’t have to worry about outsiders looking into their vehicle and seeing anything. This could decrease the risk of auto theft and an increase in auto damage.

Tinting stops would-be thieves from seeing items inside the vehicle. Auto owners can travel around anywhere without others looking into their vehicle. For many auto owners, privacy is a must and could decrease the risk of personal injuries. 

3. Protecting the Automobile’s Interior

As the sunlight flows into the automobile, direct sunlight can cause the interior colors to fade and damage the upholstery. Direct exposure to increased temperatures can cause significant damage inside the automobile upholstery and other features in the car. By applying window tinting, the auto owners can get more use-value from their interior. 

4. Decreases Exposure to Ultraviolet Sun Rays

Ultraviolet sun rays present risks for the auto owner. The auto owner could develop skin cancer if they are exposed to ultraviolet sun rays. By adding window tinting, the auto owner can decrease their risk of skin cancer by preventing direct exposure to the sun rays. This is highly beneficial between 10 am and 3 pm when the sun rays are at their highest concentration.

5. Improves Driver Safety

Auto tinting can improve driver safety by deflecting the glare of oncoming headlights. Newer halogen headlights can present some risks for auto drivers. The auto window tinting could prevent the glare from the headlights from preventing drivers from seeing the road and avoid accidents. Some tinting options can help some drivers who face difficulties because of astigmatism. 

6. Provides a Scratch-Proof and Shatterproof Coating on Glass

By installing auto tinting, the auto owner could apply a protective coating on their auto glass. The right tinting can prevent scratches and stop the auto glass from shattering if the driver is involved in an accident. This could decrease potential risks and injuries. It protects the auto glass from shattering and breaking if rocks or other debris come in contact with it. Auto owners can compare the different aftermarket auto tinting and choose the right option for their vehicle. 

Auto owners install window tinting in their cars because it is aesthetically pleasing, and the tinting provides them with a wealth of benefits. Increased privacy and protection are just a few of the benefits. Auto owners can also decrease their risk of exposure to ultraviolet sun rays.

My Daughter Wrote and Illustrated a Book!

Last year during the pandemic my daughter Abby decided that she wanted to write and illustrate a book. So I helped her get started with an idea she had. I helped her develop her idea into a short little story about a little girl that is lost and scared.

Helping a 10 year old write a story isn’t as easy as it seems. Sentence and story structure are not really at the top of their list of things to remember when writing. So we just took it one step at a time. I figured, no matter what, she is doing something creative and I am proud she is taking this step to get started.

It only took a few days to write the story. We made sure we went through a first and second draft and finally we had our final draft… that is until I lost it. I put the story somewhere… I just had no idea where, and as time marched on it was forgotten about and pushed aside to make way for the many other projects we always seem to get involved with.

Fast forward to a few weeks ago where my amazing wife FOUND the story! My daughter was not nearly as excited as I was. She must have already moved on from the story as she really struggled pushing herself to get the story illustrated. At first she just didn’t even want to start, but then I explained the process and that she would be coloring her drawings on the computer, she started to get a little more excited.

With a little help, Abby was able to knock out her illustrations and also get them colored over a relaxing weekend. With the review process finally finished up we are now happy to say that Abby’s very first book, The Lost Girl, is now available for purchase in digital as well as print!

How to Keep Your House Cool If Your AC Unit Breaks

At certain times of the year, it’s impossible to live without our beloved AC units. Especially here in the mid-west. They can both heat and cool our homes when the weather outside is less than livable, and are a staple of any home. 

However, what can you do to keep your house cool when it’s hot and your AC unit breaks down?

Here are some ideas to keep everyone happy and cool as we continue to stay at home. 

Use Fans 

Running a fan is one of the simplest ways to help to cool down a room without AC. Fans can cool the air by up to 4 degrees, making an 84-degree house feel significantly more bearable at 80 degrees using a fan. 

Ceiling fans should set downwards to create a breeze in the room, but make sure to switch off the fan when you leave the room in order to conserve energy. Windchill will only cool people down–it doesn’t cool down the room, so there is literally no reason to keep ceiling fans on when nobody is in the room. 

Keep windows closed in order to trap the cool air inside.

Reduce Heat from the Outside in the Home 

Rooms that face South or West are the most challenging to keep cool, so you need to make sure you do things to prevent heat from coming in, or from generating heat from the inside. Keep shades over the windows to help keep the sun from heating the room. Use blackout curtains to keep a room cool if it faces the sun. In addition, if you use fans, make sure to keep windows closed in order to keep cool air circulating the room.

To cool down a room, keep interior heat to a minimum. Without your air conditioning unit, using certain household appliances can quickly heat a home up to unbearable temperatures. The oven, stovetop, dishwasher, or dryer being used will all contribute to heating up an already warm room. Try preparing foods in the microwave and then wait until after dark to run the dishwasher or clothes dryer if your air conditioner breaks. 

Keep Yourself and Your Family Cool 

If rooms are hot, it might be hard to keep you and your family cool, however, there are some things you can do to stop the heat from getting too much. First, try placing cool towels or tea towels around your neck or on your back to cool down your body temperature. Stay hydrated with ice-cold water as you will be sweating a lot more due to the heat. Water will keep you hydrated, and the ice will help to cool down your body temperature 

Get Your AC fixed 

Not having AC can be a real pain. While you may think you can take a look at your AC unit to fix it yourself, it’s best to leave it to the pros. Cooldown your home quickly by calling a 24 hour Air Conditioning Repair company who will work quickly to help to get your home feeling cool again.
