Bask In The Benefits of Window Film While Basking in the Sun

Opening up buildings with natural light and views to the outside, windows have become a popular choice in today’s architecture. Unfortunately, the additional glass in homes and commercial buildings also opens up the window (pardon the pun) to higher than ever energy costs, heat build-up, excessive glare and a  greater chance of premature fading of interior furnishings.

Window film eliminates these problems and allows you to save money while basking in the sun-light, safely and comfortably!

Key Benefits:

  • Window film corrects temperature imbalances to give occupants a cooler environment throughout the building.
  • With up to 79% heat rejection, glass treated with window film can save up to 30% on energy costs.  So much for money going out the window!
  • No more annoying interruption watching TV and working on computer monitors with 95% of the sun’s glare blocked by the window film.
  • With a 99% reduction in UV rays, window film preserves the color of interior furnishings and helps to protect occupants from harmful UV radiation linked to pre-mature aging and cancers of the skin.
  • Costing approximately one-tenth of having new windows installed, window film is an effective, affordable alternative to window replacement.

We are the most highly recommended company for window tinting Tampa homes, commercial buildings, and yachts. Our wide selection of films includes ceramic based coatings which are free of dye or metal that provide neutral, non-reflective views while keeping out the sun’s negative elements from disrupting your home or business.

Seven Solutions Gained From Window Tinting Clear Glass

Architects and builders typically install clear glass windows in homes. With consumer demand for open, spatial sun-lit rooms, glass architecture has responded with an increase in number of windows. Expansive glass has also become more popular. 

Home owners living in Tampa Bay, Sarasota, and Orlando traditionally deal with seven major adverse effects that clear glass presents:

  1. Rooms become too hot.  
  2. Cooling systems run non-stop. 
  3. Electric bills are outrageously high.
  4. Glare makes it difficult to watch TV or work on computers.
  5. Ultraviolet rays cause floors and furnishings to fade.
  6. Higher risk for skin cancer and premature aging from unfiltered UV rays . 
  7. Privacy is often non-existent.

Today’s advanced technology window film resolves all seven issues and more.

With our window film added to your home’s existing windows, the degree of solar heat entering through the glass is reduced. Typically, darker films block more heat but with recent advancements in film technology, our newest ceramic coatings are designed with a lighter coating that reduces more total solar energy than standard metalized film. Window film also reduces glare by more than 80% making TV viewing and computer work enjoyable any time of the day.

The filmed left panes enhanced the view while stopping the heat, sun, glare and UV rays.

According to the EPA, approximately half of a home’s utility bills are wasted by loss of heat and heat gain through untreated windows. Home window tinting significantly improves energy efficiency and can help save up to 35% or more on cooling costs. With this equation not only will utility bills come down, but over time the film virtually pays for itself.

Less UV means less interior fading and more protection for your family.

Most fabrics, furnishings and artwork can fade simply by allowing daylight to pass through an untreated window. Window film will block up to 99.9% of all UVA and UVB rays, helping to protect your family and preserve the color of your furnishings, carpets and wood floors.

Tinting your home’s windows allows you to enjoy the sunlight inside worry free…. and outside the film adds privacy with an extra touch of elegance!

 


Our window films have offered solid, life-time warrantied solutions to the sun’s vexing problems for thousands of homeowners throughout Florida. Our diverse selection of films allows our experts to work with you to determine the perfect customized solution for your home.

Window Film Keeps Florida Homes Cool in Summer

We’ve just entered spring and already afternoon temperatures are clear warnings that summer-time heat is quickly approaching. 

“Honey! Why isn’t the a/c cooling the house down? Ulch, we better come up with a plan before summer arrives”!!

Floridians know all too well that along with summer comes heat, humidity, glare, UV rays, and shocking electric bills!

High Impact Glass Solutions has been busier than ever window tinting Tampa homes with our Panorama solar window films to help prepare homeowners for what’s to come.


With Panorama solar window film on your windows, there is no need for window coverings to block the sun… or window fans to cool rooms down.

For personal aesthetics and if needed to satisfy HOA restrictions, our wide selection of colors allows home owners to choose from darker tint shades to an optical grade film so light, that its hardly visible on the windows. 


This sitting room faced west and was getting pounded with blistering heat and glare from the sun. With Panorama film applied on the right two glass sliders, the reduction of heat and absence of glare made a significant difference.

 

Besides making homes more comfortable and rejecting glare, the reduction of up to 70% of the solar heat entering through filmed windows lowers those outrageous energy bills. Plus, since Panorama solar films block 99% of the ultraviolet rays, furnishings in the home are protected from fading and more importantly, the chances of UV radiation skin cancer is greatly reduced.

The filmed window is easy to find in this room. Look at the difference!

We can’t change hot summer conditions outside.
But we can improve your home’s conditions inside!
