Florida Window Tinting Fact Checking. Consumer Awareness Begins Now

Most consumers have a limited amount of information concerning window film.

Checking online can eliminate some obvious issues since everyone claims to have the best solutions, etc.

Fortunately consumers can get detailed performance characteristics thanks to the NFRC which is a quasi-governmental agency that is the repository for factual, lab tested specifications for leading window film brands.

The NFRC (Click here) was developed to demonstrate accuracy in light of the anticipated energy savings that would eventually lead to Energy Star ratings.

While the intention of window film manufacturers to comply with the strict testing data imposed is admirable, an unintended virtue of the NFRC is to dispel numerous exaggerations frequently espoused during competitive sales calls and demonstrations.

Advanced Film Solutions is one of Florida’s leading commercial and residential window film installation companies.

We remain steadfast in highlighting factual performance expectations and real-world film comparisons.

Here are a few examples:

IR Hype

3M Window Film dealers are known to confuse heat rejection results with Infrared filtering statistics.

For example they may claim that their Prestige Film series stops 97% of the heat from entering your windows no matter how light the film may be.

In the case of Prestige 70 the actual NFRC rating for total solar energy is 50%.

Frankly 50% heat rejection is fairly good for such a light film transmission; so where is the disconnect?

IR heat blocking films like Prestige and Huper Optik do filter out a large percentage of the IR wavelengths but IR wavelengths only effect 50% of total solar energy (Heat)

The remaining portion of heat is a factor of visible light being filtered.

If 70% of the visible light is being transmitted than a large proportion of heat is not being rejected.

On Angle Hype

To further obfuscate the NFRC rated performance a 3M agent may insist that their film performs better at an angle. They may imply that this improved heat rejection is unique to their film.

Here again this is complete nonsense.

All window films and glass itself performs exactly the same way. There is no advantage whatsoever.

Heat Lamp Trick:

If a 3M dealer wants to demonstrate an illusion of heat rejection they may employ a heat lamp that blasts large amounts of IR wavelength. They may compare a coated piece of glass and compare that to a clear glass pane or a darker coating that does not filter IR wavelengths. This gimmick gives the illusion that a lighter film like Prestige 70 can block more heat than a darker silver type film.

The facts are that a darker silver film will block 80% of the total solar energy versus the 50% stated above. The visible light is reflected in the case of reflective films.

The trick is compelling but nevertheless it remains a trick.

Advanced Film Solutions represents Eastman Chemical and their portfolio of Vista, LLumar, Huper Optik coatings.

We can also do the David Copperfield illusion or make unqualified statements about angles and IR heat rejection but we choose not to do so.

We prefer facts.

Expert Window Film Insights For Florida Homeowners

Many homeowners are considering replacing their windows for insulated glass units.

Glass companies will try to convince you that your existing windows are too energy deficient to handle the heat and UV. They make a case that only dual pane windows will lower your monthly electric cooling costs  throughout our tropical summers.

The price tag for a complete window replacement is cost-prohibitive and the payback period is extensive; frequently in the order of 20 years!

There is a better solution: Advanced Film Solutions.

Window film is applied to your existing windows at a cost that is 1/10 that of a window replacement.

The payback is typically less than 2 years and the warranty is lifetime.

Our NFRC rated coatings increase the efficiency of your windows by filtering out nearly 80% of the heat gain.

Glare is controlled and the damaging UV rays are eliminated.

Many of your neighbors have experienced the dramatic difference that window film can make in your home and Advanced Film Solutions has performed 13,400 installations in the last several years throughout Tampa Bay, Orlando and Sarasota-Bradenton.

Our philosophy is pretty simple:

We offer the best performing thin films manufactured by the world leader in window film, Eastman Chemicals.

We customize the solution based on our clients requirements.

Many homeowners prefer no reflective coatings either based on personal aesthetic preferences or mandated deed restrictions. Advanced Film has you covered with our Huper Optik patented ceramic films.

Some clients prefer privacy that is provided by low reflective coatings like Vista or LLumar.

Many homeowners want the dual benefit of safety, security combined with solar control films.  These thicker versions keep intruders out of your home.

Condo & HOA Home Show Window Tinting Tampa Bay

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.
