2020, Tampa Bay Home Improvement: New Windows Vs. Window Film?

The new year is nearly upon us and many Florida homeowners are considering upgrading their windows and sliders.

The first thought for most people is a total window replacement.

Consumers are “sold” on the energy efficiency of IG units either because they have succumbed to advertising or peer pressure from friends and neighbors.

The cost for a complete window replacement is very expensive and the ROI may take more than 15 years to recover your investment.

That’s why thousands of Tampa Bay, Orlando and Sarasota homeowners have researched and decided to initiate a retrofit window film solution by Advanced Film Solutions.

White Paper

Window film is applied to your existing windows and sliders. These thin film coatings transform your current windows into energy efficient systems that filter out more heat, glare and UV as compared to new windows at a fraction of the cost of replacement.

Our payback is less than  2 years and our lifetime warranty and NFRC rated performance expectations takes the gues-work out!

Heat Blocking Window Film For Deed Restricted Homes, Tampa. Orlando

Homeowners doing online research will 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.
