Home Window Tinting Provides Comfort and Energy Savings

Ashley and Her Family Live in a  Spectacular Home with LOTS of Glass

Oversized windows gave their retreat an abundance of natural light. But the expansive windows also introduced expansive problems. With the rear of the home having a western exposure, direct sunlight and heat was streaming through the windows all afternoon. Though they didn’t want to disrupt the open panoramic views, both heat and monthly energy bills were skyrocketing.

Decisions had to be made.
This has been a common problem that we’ve dealt with while window tinting Tampa and surrounding areas. “The more glass the better” is the way of today’s architecture. But as Ashley found out, this trend comes with a high price to pay. She did her homework to find a solution. After considering blinds or draperies, she learned that she would no longer have the views they loved and after time, the UV rays would cause them to fade. Instead of a solution, this course of action would only make matters worse. After further research, Ashley found that window film would be her best option.

Why Tinting was the Best Solution

  • PROVIDED ENERGY SAVINGS – window tinting stabilized and minimized temperatures through out Ashley’s home by not allowing the sun to penetrate their windows.  The absence of less solar energy allowed their HVAC’s cold air to circulate more efficiently, reducing their a/c bills up to 25%.
  • PRESERVED FURNISHINGS – window tinting helped to preserve Ashley’s pickled oak floors and exquisite décor from fading. By blocking the sun’s ultraviolet rays, there was also less concern about skin damage.
  • ASTETHICALLY BENEFICIAL – the ceramic film Ashley chose is optically clear thereby reducing the heat issue without compromising the open view issue. Her home retained it’s beauty, inside and out, and became dramatically more energy-efficient. Every glass area of the home was filmed and nowhere was it any less stunning.
  •  SMART INVESTMENT – with a life-time warranty and the science of film technology today, window tinting will provide Ashley’s home with benefits for years to come and a fast return on her investment. Many of our customers see a full return in three years or less.

As you can clearly see, filmed glass makes an amazing difference! And the difference can be seen and felt in any size home. You don’t have to live in an “extravagant house of glass” such as Ashley’s. Typically, homeowners of smaller averaged sized homes with untreated glass pay 20% or more unnecessarily in cooling costs. If you’re in the path of the sun’s rays, window tinting is highly recommended.

Call our experienced, professional window tinters for your complimentary window film demonstration. Since every home has it’s own glass distinctions, experiencing the performance and look of the different films on your glass is a smart first step towards cooler comfort and energy savings!

Marine Window Tinting Amazes Boat Owners

Superior Marine Window Tinting For Yachts

Floridian 1
Meet the “Floridian”

Heat and glare from the hot sun causes excessive discomfort for boaters when traditionally this problem is more prevalent during summer months. With record high temps, it’s no wonder our phones are ringing off the hook! We’re glad that at least the prices at the pumps are down as our crews are on the move, traveling to Tampa, St. Pete, Clearwater, Treasure Island, Sarasota, Naples, and over to the Palm Beach and Fort Lauderdale areas.

Our most recent marine tinting installation was performed on the Floridian, a 55′ beauty docked in Palmetto, a boating town 20 minutes north of Sarasota. It’s no surprise that the Floridian’s owner spent much of the year in Florida. Open waterways and tropical weather makes Florida a haven for boating enthusiasts. Most boat owners quickly learn that a marine environment introduces many problems that can effect the condition and performance of their yacht… and those who are on board.

  • Heat from sun blasting through glass windows and partitions causes serious discomfort.
  • A/C runs overtime to combat the heat thereby energy consumption is greatly increased.
  • Reflected glare bouncing off the water reduces visibility and distorts views.
  • There’s no escape from UV rays known to increase fading of interiors and cause skin damage.

Our Film Installation is the Best Solution for These Problems and More

Many of our yacht customers have been misled by well known films, such as 3M, only to find that the film separates, fades and peels over extended exposure to the salt water environment. To avoid such dilemmas, we tinted the Floridian with a Nano-Ceramic Coating that is 100% metal-free, 100% dye-free and specifically designed to endure a life at sea. With Nano-Ceramic technology making the cabin so much cooler, the Floridian would cruise with less draw on it’s engine’s horsepower, benefit from increased fuel efficiency, enjoy greater visibility during the brightest times of the day and find night time visibility actually improved! As for damaging Ultraviolet rays streaming through the glass, once our tinting installation was completed, 99.9% of these harmful rays would be blocked.

Watch how we got the Floridian ready for cooler, safer and more energy-efficient voyages! 

The glass treatment that you watched in the video is an additional step we take in preserving your boat’s windows from hard water and calcium stains. It also prevents windows from getting scratched and keeps them clean for optimal clarity. The treatment is an amazing 24/7 glass maintenance program that every boat and it’s occupants benefit from.

Your home on the water deserves the solutions we offer that are based on real, actual results as opposed to marketing hype.

Letters to Santa Asking For Window Tinting Tampa

Why is Window Tinting Tampa the #1 Christmas Gift?

Santa wish list
Folks, while you’re out shopping, celebrating with family and friends, or away on a holiday vacation, who’s protecting your house?

No one! All while thieves are scoping out your twinkling Christmas tree surrounded by piles of  “come and get me” presents.

What an enticing sight… makes them salivate.

No wonder Christmas is the busiest time on a burglar’s calendar!

It takes a thug less than three minutes to break through glass that has not been treated with security window film.

Don’t be left with stolen presents, shattered glass and having to deal with timely insurance claims.

Don’t allow Christmas joy to become Christmas boo-hoo for your tiny loved ones!

 

What works for window tinting Tampa is simply preventing forced entry altogether! Window tinting Tampa with safety and security films on windows, glass doors, and sliders, delays, deters, and denies anyone…..other than Santa of course, from breaking through glass every day of the year. Not just during holidays.

Your weakest point of entry now provides protection against natural catastrophes, hurricanes, explosions, bomb blasts, vandalism, burglary, glass breakage and turbulent weather. Holidays or not!

All of our safety and security films have passed large missile impact tests and meet GSA and Dade County Blast standards proven to fortify glass against brute force. With our additional process known as the “wet seal anchoring system”, a structural bond attaches the film, the glass, and the frame together. When done properly, this application ensures that your windows and glass areas have achieved the highest degree of prevention from being popped out of their frames.
