Window Film Vs. Replacing Windows The Clear Choice

Window film is a retrofit solution that transforms your inefficient single pane or dual pane windows into heat filtering units at a cost of a fraction of a window replacement.

Today’s durable lifetime warranted window film will not bubble, peel or fade. The number of choices is incredible ranging from dark light transmissions to clear IR heat blocking films.

We also recommend dual benefit solar security window films that will strengthen your glass providing shatter control and theft protection.

There are low e coatings that provide summer and winter benefits by maintaining the interior room temperatures no matter how hot or cold it gets outside.

Advanced Film Solutions with offices in Tampa Bay, Sarasota and Orlando offers more choices of coatings than any other window film installation company.

Our expert team of installers can manage any size project and we have earned the Super Service Award from Angie’s List for six straight years.

Lighter Side Of Tint, How Infrared Window Film Works

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.

Deed Restrictions Gated Community Approved Window Film Comparisons

Tampa Bay, Orlando and Sarasota boast some of the more exclusive gated communities in the country.

Homeowners appreciate the deed restrictions that prohibit activities that can lower property values.

While homes in gated communities suffer from heat, glare and rising cooling costs their deed restrictions prohibit the use of reflective window film.

Advanced Film Solutions offers the best heat rejecting non-reflective window films that meet all deed restrictions.

Huper Optik ceramic films provide the best heat to light ratio performance of any non reflective films.

These non dyed and non-corrosive films out-perform all competitive offerings including the 3M Prestige series (dyed, multi-layered films.)

When we discuss anticipated performance on various glass types (single-pane, tempered, IG, etc.) we refer to documented characteristics as outlined by the NFRC.

Huper Optik, Eastman Chemicals has a wider range of choices than the dyed prestige films.

Huper Optik clarity is superior compared to the multi-layered 3M choices.

Huper Optik offers a lifetime warranty and of course our choices eliminate 99.9% of the UV.

There are many gated communities that have allowed reflective films in their communities.

If the HOA approves than you might consider the Eastman Vista Series or our LLumar Dual Reflective films.

These films are available in a wide range of light transmissions in either the Vista or LLumar lines and these choices out-perform our 3M Night Vision competition.

Once again check our documented results on the NFRC website. You’ll note that our Eastman choices are available in a 5%, 14%, 15%, 18%, 25%, 28%, 35%, 38%. 45% while 3M is limited to a scant 3 choices.

Our Eastman coatings have a transferable lifetime warranty as compared to 3M ‘s non transferable warranty.

See The Light. Window Film For Deed Restricted Homes

Homeowners doing their online research will quickly discover that there are solar control coatings that block heat while maintaining the appearance of your windows and sliders.

These non-reflective films meet deed restrictions and Home Owner Association rules that prohibit reflective films.

The challenge for window film manufacturers was to develop a coating that filters out large quantities of heat while keeping the amount of light transmission high.

Reflective films certainly filter out heat, light UV and glare but again they create challenges for the deed restrictions and do alter the appearance of the glass.

Non reflective dyed films are one alternative but the solar absorption is generally too high for IG glass units and the dyes wear down very quickly under the relentless Florida sunshine.

The solution was the patented dual layer ceramic films developed by Huper Optik.

Huper Optik ceramic and spectrally selective films filter out IR wavelengths (invisible light spectrum) and an assortment of light transmissions depending upon the film selected.

It’s important to note that there are no dyes in the Huper series while our 3M competition offers multi-layered Prestige film with dyes.

Huper Optik is available in darker light transmissions that offer greater glare and fade protection while the lighter 35% to 70% light transmissions block nearly 70% of the total solar energy.

The bottom line is maximum heat rejection with a better light ratio than any competitive coating.

Since these coatings are less reflective than glass your HOA will quickly approve.

Daytime views and night views are preserved.
