Condo & HOA Home Show Window Tinting Tampa Bay

Solar control window film has been available since the 1950’s.

The evolution of thin film technology and adhesives has vastly improved over these decades as you would expect.

Today’s high teach window films are available in many iterations that provide durable high heat rejection warranted for a lifetime of comfort and reliability.

Many consumers prefer lighter coatings that are nearly invisible to cut high temperatures without altering the aesthetic appearance of their home’s windows, doors and sliders.

The key objective is to lower cooling costs without adding any interior or exterior reflectivity. This becomes critically important for deed restricted communities or condominium associations that prohibit reflective films.

The solution required to provide this type of heat rejection without substantially darkening the windows is the implementation of IR heat rejecting films that attack the invisible wavelengths. IR wavelengths represent nearly 50% of the total solar energy.

Since visible light wavelengths represent the balance of the total solar energy a window film that combines visible and IR filtering will provide the best value for the home consumer.

Advanced Film Solutions represents the Eastman Chemical’s Huper Optik IR heat blocking solar films.

Huper Optik is available in multiple light transmissions that attack visible and IR heat.

The ceramic coatings are responsible for light filtering rather than dyes. Dyes will color migrate and fade in a short amount of time. It may also be the case where surface applied dyes are easily scratched from the film.

Petented Huper Optik is 100% dye free and the combination of visible light and IR rejection is unsurpassed in the industry.

Key FAQ’s:

  • IR heat lamp gimmicks will appear to demonstrate superior heat rejection but the sales demonstration is an illusion. Since visible light represents 50% of total solar energy any IR heat lamp demo is automatically leaving out 50% of the typical homes heat gain.

  • All window film works better when the sun is at an angle to the windows. There is no film that provides any additional capabilities compared to another at an angle.

  • Ceramic films are far more durable than dyed coatings (refer to 3M Prestige multi-layered optical films,)

Advanced Film Solutions is your best solution for lighter high performing coatings.

Window Film For Florida Heat Control Finding The Perfect Balance

Homeowners throughout Tampa bay, Orlando and Sarasota appreciate the numerous benefits of having solar control window film applied to their windows.

Advanced Film Solutions has provided energy control films on nearly 13,000 homes in the last 11 years. Our in home estimates allow our clients the opportunity to choose the perfect film for their specific requirements and aesthetic preferences.

Reflective, dual reflective coatings:

Our portfolio of films covers a wide range of light transmissions and heat filtering capabilities. Dual reflective films present a reflective appearance from the exterior view and a lower reflection from the interior. These films allow for night vision and will give the homeowner daytime privacy while factoring out heat.

No other company in Florida has as many choices. The se films range from our 5% straight through light transmissions of 58-60%

Non- Reflective coatings:

Our Ceramic Huper Optik coatings and Vista ceramic and spectrally selective films are less reflective than glass. These coatings are perfect for deed restricted gated communities and they block a range of total solar energy from 75% to 49%

 

It should be noted that darker films in any composition factor out more heat than lighter versions of these films. This includes our spectrally selective films that filter out IR wavelengths.

There are some 3M dealers who confuse IR wavelengths with heat. This confusion leads them to make erroneous claims that a lighter 70% film can block 97% of the heat. This is clearly untrue.

Fortunately the NFRC has established factual, lab tested performance characteristics that highlight the actual performance of their prestige film as well as the Eastman Chemical portfolio we represent.

Property Managers Choose Comfort Sun Control Window Film

The days are getting longer and hotter throughout west, and central Florida. We are hitting 90 degree temperatures and 100% humidity which is typical for our late spring and tropical summers.

Advanced Film Solutions recommends that you consider solar control window film.

We apply thin film coatings to the interior side of your windows and glass doors. These coatings filter out nearly all the UV and as much as 85% of the heat from entering their offices.

Economically priced and durable, these films will last for years to come and are warranted against bubbling or adhesive failure.

We provide free estimates and will match the perfect window film for your clients requirements.
