Why You Need Window Deflectors and How They Can Benefit You
Window deflectors play an important role in keeping your seats and interiors shielded from rain and turbulence while letting in some fresh air. Wind deflectors for cars cover about two inches of your windows. This ensures that neither you nor your passengers have to succumb to a stuffy interior or the whistling of the wind or the splashing drizzles of the rain. Admittedly, fresh air is especially important as you drive; adequate fresh air ensures that you stay alert through your journey, especially if it is a long one. Additionally, poor weather typically causes your windshield to get foggy especially when all windows are closed and you have passengers. A foggy windshield will require you to keep clearing it. However, with a window deflector or rain guards for trucks, you can comfortably open the window, thus eliminating the fogging of the windshield. If you are apprehensive that a window deflector will compromise or tarnish your vehicles aesthetics, you need not to worry. Window deflectors are sleek and stylish and they will compliment just about any vehicle. The fact that these window visors will not significantly interfere with your vehicle’s look gives you more reason to install these deflectors that offer both utility and comfort.
Did you know that your air conditioner consumes a lot of energy? Your vehicle’s air conditioner uses energy to keep its compressor going and this uses up more energy from the vehicle’s engine. This results to the engine using more fuel to keep the car mobile and to keep the AC running. However if you turn the AC ventilation off and instead opt to let in fresh air through the window or sunroof, you are likely to create vehicle drag. When wind enters the cockpit, it collides with the back window and causes a reverse gush. As such, the vehicle’s engine has to use up more energy to keep up with the wind thrust in the cocktail to ensure that the vehicle keeps moving. At the end of the day, you will have used up more gas or fuel than necessary. Window deflectors for your car windows can keep you from using more fuel or gas than you need, especially in this economy. Rain guards change your car’s aerodynamics so that even when your windows are lowered, the wind or rain does not come gushing on your face.
Window Deflector Installation
Window deflectors appear deceptively simple. While the process is not too difficult, you should read the install sheet just to be on the safe side. Window deflector installation can be done in two ways depending on the type of rain guard for cars you purchase. You can install the deflector through the adhesive tape method or by tweaking and clipping the accessory into the window alignment.
For the adhesive tape method, make sure that you have a rag and some rubbing alcohol. To ensure that the deflectors are free from scratches before appending them, use gloves during the installation processes and only hold the car window rain guards on their margins. Refrain from clearing the deflector even when it is smudged. Use the alcohol based cleaner to clean out the section on which the adhesive tape will be placed. Any grit will keep the adhesive as well as the window deflectors from lasting longer. When these cleaned areas become dry, remove the non-adhesive strip from the wind deflectors for cars to make the adhesive exposed. Be sure not to touch the adhesive before it is applied. With great care, append the rain guards for car windows deflectors on top of the vehicle’s windows; the deflectors you purchase will usually be specific to your vehicles type so they will sit perfectly within the window’s outlines. Press the corners and the entire outline of the deflectors to ensure that they stick firmly to the windows. Your window deflectors installation will be successful.
For the second installation method, roll down the vehicle windows onto which you want to attach the window deflectors. You will see a ridges on both sides of the window; this are supposed to affix your rain guards for truck. Next, carefully bend the deflector so that it can fit inside the window that is now open. Then, fix the deflector in alignment with the window contours. Carefully lift the upper rim of the deflectors onto the window outline and when the whole rim of the deflector is within the window outline, release it. The deflector will naturally expand into the window ridges and thereby affixing itself over the window.
