Tampa Window Film NFRC Certification In Plain English

NFRC certification is an important step in the window film industry.

The International Window Film Association has been collectively involved in meetings during the years in setting the guidelines for certification and ensuring that window film would be included as an energy efficient device.

Accurate measurements of a particular window film performance on glass have been well known for decades. The issue for the window film industry was how to objectively quantify these performance characteristics, and how to certify the accuracy of these results?

 
 

By accomplishing this requirement Eastman Performance Films (Huper Optik) enables consumers to make an objective decision (the level playing field) and potentially qualify for rebates and incentives.

Window manufacturers have had a head start (as you might expect) The removable temporary labels currently appear on their certified products.

Window film was a different situation since the installation is typically a retrofit on an installed window.
 

Your particular home (let’s use Florida for example) have windows that are typically 1/8″ clear single pane (commercial glass may have 1/4″ glass.)

These clear glass types are extremely inefficient since they allow so much solar energy (heat) to be transmitted into your home. The installation of an energy efficient window film can reduce that heat by a tremendous amount, saving cooling costs (your energy bill!)

The certified lab tested performance of the installed window film will now become available to consumers.

Obviously certain types of window film may be more “energy efficient” than others based on their visible light transmission (how dark?) and their SHGC (how much heat is entering the room?)

This is the trade-off between energy efficiency and aesthetics.  As experts in energy efficient window film we can guide you through these selections so that you can make the best choice for your specific home.

The fact that Eastman Performance Films was the first window film manufacturer to take these steps and demonstrate their accurate performance of their window film demonstrates their commitment to the consumer.

Huper Optik became the second company to receive certification and we are proud of both of our key manufacturers for their diligence.

As a personal aside; it is this consumer oriented mindset at VISTA Window Film, that encouraged Advanced Film Solutions to become a Vista Window Film independent dealer.

Yet another reason to consider VISTA or Huper Optik Window Film for your Florida home!

We highly recommend that you consider an energy retrofit for your windows by installing our Vista or Huper Optik window film as compared to your cost for replacing your windows.

Window Replacement Vs. Window Tinting Tampa, Orlando, Sarasota

Many homeowners (commercial) are considering replacing their windows with IG units or at the very least more energy efficient glass. 

BeFunky Collage

If the windows have air or moisture leakage, failed seals, or damaged frames (or if they aren’t structurally sound), then window film installation isn’t an option to address complaints or window problems.

But if your windows are structurally sound and in good condition, window film can often take care of several of the common problems associated with windows in commercial buildings.


There are many reasons why you may be considering this possibility:

  • Your monthly electric bill is outrageous.
  • There is almost zero winter insulating benefits for your current windows.
  • A window replacement company has captured your attention.
  • The local power company mentioned window replacement when they conducted an energy audit.
  • A friend or neighbor replaced their windows and has encouraged you to take a similar course!

We are Tampa and Orlando’s premier installation company for thin film retrofit technology films by Eastman Chemical.

 
  • Our portfolio includes VISTA, LLumar and the incomparable Huper Optik ceramic film.
