Window Film Lowers Energy Costs

Reducing use of energy benefits you AND the environment.

By rejecting the heat from the sun, less energy is used. Cooling systems cycle on less and the absence of heat coming through windows enables you to keep window treatments open resulting in less use of electric lights.

Benefits? You save $$ on energy costs, the high expense of buying new windows is avoided, and your existing windows don’t end up in a landfill! You win…. and the environment wins.

So how can your current windows become sun rejectors?

With window film!

Window film offers more than money savings and environmental benefits. Designed to reduce the amount of solar heat transmitted through glass, window film helps to increase solar reflectivity, reject solar heat and reduce incoming ultraviolet light, resulting in a wide range of benefits:

  • Improved comfort with balanced temps throughout your home.
  • Increased fade protection for interior furnishings.
  • Decreased danger of skin cancer from UV rays.
  • Reduced glare on TV screens and computer monitors.
  • Open views through windows that no longer need to be covered.

 Unlike curtains or blinds that untreated windows need to stop sunlight, heat and UV rays, window film is designed to
allow light in, help reduce heat, glare, UV rays, and maintain views… all at the same time.

The comparison between the unfilmed window and the window with film says it all!

Solar Control Film Adds Energy Efficiency and Exterior Appeal Tampa, St. Petersburg, Orlando, Sarasota

One of  our recent window film installations served as a perfect example of what happens to a building with old, outdated window film that lacks luster and performance.

Besides presenting a horrid impression with such an unsightly appearance, the window film failed to give the interior of the building any heat relief and rather than being energy efficient it became a money pit for insanely high electric bills.

We were contacted to deliver a cost-saving strategy to restrain the high energy costs, create an  improved working environment, and embellish the exterior curb appeal.

We  removed the nasty film and prepped all windows for the application of Solar Gard Architectural Truevue 05.

Glass ready for film application that will change how this building looks, how it feels, and how more energy efficient it will be!

In our experience window tinting Tampa buildings with similar needs, we’ve found Solar Gard Truevue 05 window film to be a grand slam for optimal results:

  • Window film provides energy saving by reducing air-conditioner usage.
  • Window film improves interior with year-round comfort.
  • Window film protects against ultraviolet damage and fading.
  • Window film diminishes bothersome glare.
  • Window film adds enhancement to exterior appearance.

Truevue 05 provided everything this building needed!

The untreated glass on the right had immense heat and glare blasting through. Filmed windows on the left stopped the sun and glare without obstructing any views.

Solar Gard window films are made of complex layers of various coated materials that control how the sun’s radiation passes through glass. The films are protected with a scratch-resistant coating, inspected and put through stringent endurance tests to provide the industry with a selection of high quality window films. 

Aging may improve certain wines and various cuts of beef. But as you saw from this project, the aging process can proffer a harsh effect on window film that hinders the sustainability of buildings. 

We can’t turn back the hands of time, but our window film installations can definitely make your building look and feel like it was built yesterday.

No matter what the age, call for your complimentary evaluation and free demonstration of how our window films will perform on your glass!

Window Tinting Heat Rejection Tampa Commercial Buildings

Advanced Window Film Technology Targets the Commercial Sector

 

Huper Optik buildings 2

Today’s architecture is designed for natural light and providing views to the outside. Though aesthetically pleasing, unwelcome heat, glare and harmful UV rays enter as well. According to the Us Dept. of Energy, 75% of all existing glass is inefficient, causing an overload on HVAC systems and negatively impacting a building’s energy budget.

Serious problems for commercial buildings, no doubt….but not without a solution!
