Once you have your window tints installed, the next thing that you should know is when to replace them. Even though you keep them well-cleaned and maintained, your tints will eventually reach their lifespan. Some factors that could affect the longevity of the window tints in your car. Such factors include the amount of sunlight hitting your vehicle and the window cleaner you are using.

Below are some of the things that you should know when to change your window tint:


1) When there are visible air bubbles.

Air bubbles are sometimes a normal part of the application process because of the water being trapped in between the film and the window. Still, if this remains within a couple of weeks, this might be because the glass surface is not cleaned thoroughly before the installation, which indicates poor application. Furthermore, air bubbles might cause some dirt to get trapped between the window tint films. Besides being unpleasant to the eye, it could also start the peeling of the tints. Thus, the air bubbles do affect not only the looks of your window tints but also compromises the supposed function.


2) When there are noticeable peeling, scrapes, and scratches.

The peeling, scrapes, and scratches that could be seen in your window film could make your car look old and an eyesore. The cleaning process can develop these scrapes and scratches that will start for your window tints to peel off in the long run. The scratches could also be caused by recklessness or external factors such as debris falling into your vehicle's windshield. In addition, peeling of window tints happened when the adhesive loses its hold on the window of your vehicle. Furthermore, these damages could also affect the filtration of window tints toward the ultraviolet rays.

3) When the window tints start fading or turning purple.

The fading of your car's window tint is noticeable when the dark gray color becomes purple, mainly caused by excessive exposure to the sun for a long time. A low-grade window tint also fades faster than others because of its quality and incapability of handling too much exposure from the sun. Moreover, when the window tints started fading, this will also compromise its effectiveness in filtering harmful ultraviolet rays that might enter your vehicle and heat reduction.


4) When your fuel consumption increases than before.

Window tints are supposed to make the inside of your car feels cooler and lessen your fuel consumption. It can help in making your air conditioner work less hard. If, by chance that you notice that your fuel runs out way faster than before, then maybe your car tinting is not that functional anymore.


5) When the interior of your car gets damaged.

Protecting the interior of your car is another window tint function. If you notice that this purpose is not being met, your window tinting is probably no longer working and thus, needs replacement. Changing your window tints immediately can also save you from costing much more in fixing the upholstery of your car seats and or other interior problems.
