Florida Window Tinting; The Economical Alternative To Window Replacement

Consider:

Sure it’s hot outside and you are thinking that your windows aren’t doing the job!

You have seen commercials about new windows and that may be your next step.

BUT!

We may have a better alternative:

Advanced Film Solutions window film.

We all know what happens in the long hot spring, summer and fall when the AC is on 24/7!

Outrageous cooling costs have you in panic mode considering window replacements that can set you back thousands of dollars and take more than a decade to recover the investment costs.

We offer a better alternative that is both affordable and functional:

Today’s thin film technology window film!

kk

Manufactured by global technology companies like Eastman Chemical and Saint-Gobain today’s window films are durable, distortion and haze free and warranted for a lifetime of comfort and energy savings.

All of our coatings are NFRC certified for performance and documented savings.

No gimmicks, games or trickery using French Fry Lamps and rigged BTU meters. Just solid factual superior performance that will transform single pane windows into dual pane performance at a fraction of the cost of a window replacement!

Our ROI is less than 2 years.

Huper Optik Preferred Window Film Choice For Prestige Tampa Bay Homes


Call it the battle at the kitchen window.


In home after home Advanced Film Solutions competes head-to-head against 3M Prestige Film either marketed through Home Depot or via dozens of their agents.

Advanced Film Solutions prefers to deal in facts, documented performance and industry accepted terms.

Some background:

We spent 33 years at 3M and at one point I was the National Sales Manager of 3M Window Films.  We understand how the 3M prestige films work arguably better than local 3M resellers.

Why homeowners are considering these films?

If you live in a deed restricted neighborhood or simply dislike the way a reflective film alters the appearance of your home; you’ll be a prime candidate for Huper Optik Film (or prestige)

Why Huper Optik wins:

ho3

  • There are no dyes in our Huper Optik Film. There are dyes in the 3M prestige films.  Dyes fade or degrade over time. The light transmission is therefore less stable.
  • Huper Optik Film has a much durable scratch coating. The 3M prestige film scratches easily and the color can be removed from the film.
  • The optical clarity of the Huper Optik film is superior. This may seem subjective but a direct side-by-side  comparison clearly demonstrates the superior clarity of Huper Optik compared to prestige. It’s not even close!

  • Solar Absorption: I only mention this topic because a recent client indicated that the 3M rep claimed Huper Optik would break the windows; or at the very least would make the room hotter than prestige. 

    This may sound valid but as usual it’s utter nonsense. Both films have solar absorption that should be taken into consideration particularly on insulated glass units. Ceramic films dissipate the heat across the glass surface which is why we can offer darker ceramic choices for your home.

wer

  • Heat rejection on angle: There is no advantage to prestige or any validity in their claims that prestige works better at angles.  All films work better at angles as does glass itself!
  • Prestige blocks 97% of the IR or better yet 97% of the heat.

    More BS. Both Huper Optik and 3M block plus 90% of the entire IR spectrum. The 97% number is misleading because it refers to a very narrow IR bandwidth.

  • There are numerous white papers written on this subject.Tech Update-NA
    IWFA – IR Ratings of Window Film
  • Pricing:
    Certainly pricing varies based upon the scope of work and the margins competing companies request. Our contention is that Huper Optik is the superior value based on the clarity, performance and durability of our film.

Compare Window Film Retrofit Vs. Buying New Windows

nutty

Many Florida homeowners suffer through long hot summers with clear single pane glass windows and sliders.

replace

Heat streams in unabated and UV damages furnishings and wood floors.

Glare creates impossible to watch TV screens and computers and electric bills are higher than ever before.

If you aren’t familiar with today’s solar control window film coatings you might be persuaded by some window replacement company to invest in a complete replacement.

should

No window replacement company will detail the following FACTS:

  1. The payback for IG insulated Glass units or Low E windows may take 25 years.
  2. Many of the replacement windows do nothing to filter out harmful UV rays.
  3. The very best IG units typically stop slightly more than 50% of the heat.
  4. Unless you have significant air leaks the physical properties of your window frames did not require replacement.
  5. IG units are typically clear glass so you’ll still suffer with glare and eye strain.

There may be a better way to solve your window problems.

Advanced Film Solutions Window Film

  1. All coatings are NFRC certified so the guess-work is removed when it comes to performance.
  2. Our coatings filter 99.9% of the UV
  3. Our coatings come with a lifetime warranty.
  4. Your ROI will be less than 2 years because window films cost roughly 1/10 that of replacing your windows!
