Tangible Window Film Benefits For Florida’s Commercial Buildings

The perfect storm of rising electric costs based on unstable petroleum supplies and the encouragement of the US Government for energy efficiency has reawakened interest in window film as a cost savings solution.

This has been a long time coming because the cost equation was never easily quantified with window film and the life cycle of the product would create issues during viability studies.

Further the net effect of darkening windows quite often produced increased internal lighting costs which led to a lower ROI.

Window film leaders have created leading edge window films that meet today’s Facility Manager’s requirements:

  • We no longer install dyed polyester films that would lose their color and create purple windows. Frankly you can still see purple glass on office towers throughout the USA. This is the legacy of the 1970’s when dyed tint films were the only show in town.  The Oil Embargo created the need and these films initially produced the anticipated benefits. Unfortunately as the dyes migrated so did the effectiveness of the window tinting. LLumar and VISTA Films are metallic or ceramic and the life cycle of these films can be expected for a 20 year cycle.

  • DOE II programs have effectively quantified dramatic cost savings and ROI with the installation of our window film.  There are variables, to be sure that have an impact on the rate of return. Certain films like our Reflective 20 Silver films provide huge heat gain reductions at a very cost effective investment. Less internally reflective films have an associated cost premium which would be evident with our VISTA Series dual reflective films. Ceramic and nano-ceramic films will block copious amounts of IR and Solar heat gain without reducing the visible light transmission.  These ceramic films should be considered if daylighting benefits are considered.  Sunlight is free and these spectrally selective films would balance the AC without incurring higher internal lighting costs.
  • There are tangible aesthetic improvements that can be expected with the installation of window film. Uniform building appearance increases the value of the commercial property and in today’s competitive climate tenant comfort and tenant satisfaction are enormously important as vacancy rates increase.

Government facilities and Fortune 500 corporations have recognized the bottom line and top line benefits of reduced energy usage.  The Recovery Act and LEEDS credits and city specific commercial window film rebates are driving renewed interest.

Building Managers and Commercial Property Managers can implement their own energy retrofit plan without contracting with a third party energy services company.

Advanced Film Solutions has teamed with the world leading window film solutions.

We completed a larger project at NC State University Hill library where the sustainable solution was our Eastman Chemical manufactured Huper Optik film.

These durable coatings reduce heat gain without adding any reflectivity to the interior or exterior view.

 The goal was to provide nearly total UV reduction, lower heat gain by 70% and eliminate hot spots that can increase demand particularly during the hotter summer months.

 

Glare has been reduced by an impressive 70% and that serves to make the interior building quality much more productive for students and staff.

Our team of installers met the clients’ targeted goals for completion and the University is enthusiast in their appreciation for  the professional implementation of this energy savings film.

The success of window film systems to improve comfort and reduce energy demand and the fact that these NFRC certified films will continue to provide these benefits long into the future are raising the profile of window film as a solution across the USA.

Tampa Advanced Window Tinting Solutions Lowers Electric Costs

Solar window films have been a staple of energy conservation improvement techniques for many decades.


Technology improvements in thin film and nanotechnology have generated consumer benefits that are important for Florida homeowners as well as commercial and retail property managers.


Energy conservation, comfort and balanced cooling for a home or facility are positive benefits with an installation of window film. 

These NFRC certified films are durable and unlike the early generations of window films they will never turn purple or distort your view.

Lighter films are designed to reduce the solar heat gain thus lowering your AC usage.

This is a major factor for energy cost reduction.

We have built the widest and deepest collection of window film solutions manufactured by the industry leaders.

Unequaled capabilities and the fastest return on your investment!

Window film doesn’t need to be dark or reflective to be effective. 

Ceramic technology has shown benefits in removing large percentages of IR invisible heat.  This also equates to daylighting benefits that improve employee comfort and satisfaction.

The window film industry has provided quantified performance characteristics on the glass types most frequently found in our homes.

These films are tested in laboratories to determine the exact anticipated performance.
 

 
This is important because window film companies continue to mislead consumers with ridiculous claims about their level of IR rejection or foolishly implying that their film is somehow unique in working better at an acute or obtuse angle.  


The NFRC has certainly gone a long way toward dispelling these “fantastic misleading claims” but there’s a long way to go for ensuring consumer protection.
