Tampa Gets Cool With LLumar Advanced Film Solutions

The mature window tinting business that began over a half century ago has gone through many change since late 2008 when Eastman Films became the first company with NFRC Certification


The original window films back in the 1960’s and 1970’s had a limited life cycle because of the unstable dyes that were used in the manufacturing process.

This grew to become an industry still in search of credibility. 

Even today you’ll see purple windows on homes, office buildings and retail stores.

Credibility is critically important and the game changer is the US Department Of Energy and their Energy Star program. 

For window films to become rated and approved the industry has had to develop standardized measurements independently lab tested and documented.


The NFRC provided the vehicle for this logical process and the leading window film companies driven by Eastman’s leadership have followed suit.

Consumers are looking for energy efficient solutions that can reduce their carbon footprint and save money on their electric bills. 

Now with NFRC rated films a consumer can narrow their choices to performance and aesthetics.

Certainly there are reflective films that provide privacy, UV rejection and superior heat rejection.

These films like VISTA and LLumar set the standard in low interior reflection and outstanding optical clarity.


Non-Reflective Ceramic Films like Huper Optik set the bar at the highest level for a non metal film that meets aesthetic requirements of any Home Owners Association and complies with Deed Restrictions.

We strongly endorse the NFRC and the independent credentials that will ultimately lead to Energy Star ratings

That’s why we always advise our clients to do their homework, check the ratings and beware outrageous claims about blocking 97% of the IR or heat or nonsense about working better at angles (after all all window films do!)

Beware phony BTU tests with rigged IR meters that only measure a narrow wavelength to give the illusion of performance.

Lower Electric Bills With Tampa LLumar Advanced Film Solutions Window Tinting

Perhaps this is the year that you execute your own energy conservation plan?

You’ve considered efficient lighting and perhaps added home insulation. But consumers overlook the obvious waster of energy:

Your windows and sliders!

Advanced Film Solutions is a major supplier of spectacular performing Vista  Coatings and Huper Optik Window Film.



These films will cut down your monthly electric bill by as much as 30%.


It isn’t hocus pocus that results in such outstanding savings, rather it’s the designed capabilities of these thin films to block solar heat before it enters through your glass!

An installation of VISTA or Huper Optik films makes sense, so why are many consumers hesitant about window film?

Window Film has been around for quite a long time.

When I started my business career  at 3M in 1974, the film business was already mature.  The problem in those times was the limited life cycle of the dyed films that were being installed.  Dyes faded or changed colors and the adhesive systems failed.

Purple windows and flaking bubbled-up films gave the entire industry a solid black eye.


That’s why our entire portfolio of window films comes with a lifetime warranty against peeling, bubbling or color change!

Advanced Film Solutions has completed more than 23,000 homes and buildings since leaving 3M back in 2007.


We would be happy to provide a free estimate and local references for homeowners just like you and more than likely right in your neighborhood!
