Compare Huper Optik Vs. 3M Prestige Window Film Tampa Bay, Orlando & Sarasota

 Advanced Film Solutions is Tampa and Orlando’s preferred Huper Optik and Vista solar and solar security film installation company.

We have completed more than 18,000 installations since 2007 and nothing makes us happier than winning in a direct side-by-side comparison to 3M Prestige Film.

Let’s just say that when a prospective client does their research and gathers facts over baloney; we win the day.

Today’s installation is a case in point.


Our client wanted a superior heat rejecting film that would meet a very strict deed requirement forbidding the use of reflective films.

Many homeowners face this deed restriction in gated communities throughout the state of Florida.

Performance was also a requirement. No cheap dyed films would do for this discerning client.

The direct comparison came down to 3M Prestige Film versus our Huper Optik Ceramic Films.

 
 
 
  • Our Huper Optik Ceramic Films are available in darker light transmissions 

  • Huper Optik has a durable scratch coating and easily observed superior optical clarity. Side by side comparisons will always win the day for Huper Optik!
  • Huper Optik is dye free.
  • Huper Optik presents a natural light rather than a blue light shift easily seen in the 3M prestige films.
  • Huper Optik is less reflective than glass and easily meets all deed restrictions.
  • We dealt with NFRC factual heat rejecting specifications.

  • We explained the 3M bogus BTU charade and foolish on angle performance nonsense!

  • We were probably at a better price but frankly we never asked!

What To Know About Window Tinting For Your New Tampa Home

If you are new to the Tampa Bay area; we wish you a warm welcome. 

Tampa Bay is a terrific place to live!

What you probably won’t enjoy are our endless summers of sultry, humid, hot weather that makes it impossible to open your windows at any time of the day or night.

 
You’ll soon discover that many smart homeowners have window film installed on their glass.



What factors should a Tampa homeowner consider before making any decisions on which window film solution to select?
 
  1. Does your homeowner association restrict the use of reflective films?

Many gated communities have deed restrictions that limit the use of reflective films. This is entirely an aesthetic concern.  Check your homeowner association guidelines under the “window category.”

Advanced Film Solutions has a wide range of non-reflective films that block heat without requiring a metallic look for your glass.  These films are very effective in reducing IR heat and visible light.

Our leading solution is the German manufactured Huper Optik Series.

  • We don’t have a deed restriction?

    If a reflective film is allowed; or you have the freedom of choice for selecting window film you may wish to consider highly effective dual reflective Vista Films.
    Vista Films are reflective when viewing the glass from the exterior perspective.gfrVista designed a lower reflective interior face so your night views are undisturbed.  Vista Films are available in an array of light transmissions that can block nearly 90% of the glare and almost 100% of the UV.How dark, or light you choose is up to you!
  • Wouldn’t it be cheaper to simply replace our windows? 
    glaref
  • Ask your neighbors how much window replacement costs are these days?Advanced Film Solutions takes your existing glass and transforms their ability to factor out heat and glare at a fraction (typically 1/10) the cost of a window replacement.  Our window film has a lifetime warranty that protects your investment.
  • We want an experienced company with a superior record for customer service!

    Advanced Film Solutions has earned the impressive Super Service Award for customer service from Angie’s List for 8 straight years. 

We are Better Business Bureau A Plus Rated and we have completed thousands of projects.bbb

  • You are the expert; is one film a better value than another? Or simply; who makes the best window film?

    Advanced Film Solutions differentiates ourselves from our competition in many important ways.We have more choices and offer more of the world leading brands than any competitor.  There are differences between the popular brand choices.Knowing which film matches our client’s requirements is our focused objective.Budget concerns, aesthetic variations and performance factors all contribute to formulating a customized proposal.
  • Do you give free estimates?Yes
  • Our neighbor said we should get 3M window film. How do you compare?

    We are very attuned to the competitive advantages of our product/solutions portfolio over our 3M competition.Our background (33 years at 3M and formerly National Sales Manager of 3M Window Film.)

    We can state without reservation that there is no 3M solar or solar security window film that can equal the Advanced Film Solutions proposal in terms of aesthetics, clarity, documented heat rejection, choices in light transmissions, rebate acceptable or warranty.

    We encourage this comparison and we are 100% confident that you will recognize the greater value in every critical comparison.

Window Film Solutions Cooling Florida Homes

Each day we solve a glass problem.

Florida prestige homes were designed to maximize the amount of glass allowing huge vaulted ceiling elevations.

Glass sliders facing the rear of the home enclose the pool lanai area.

This openness creates the glare and heat problems we solve at Advanced Film Solutions!

The beauty of your view is always preserved with VISTA and Huper Optik Ceramic Window Film.

The heat gain streaming through your windows creates more cost to cool your home.

Vista and Huper Optik film will reduce the cost of cooling your home by as much as 20-30%, depending upon the orientation of your windows and the size of your window opening.

Advanced Film Solutions thanks all of the fine architects who designed these Prestige homes for Florida living!

Single pane glass???

1. The glass in most homes has very little, if any UV rejection.  This daily barrage of UV fades wood floors, carpets and furnishings. The rapid deterioration of accessories is dramatically halted with the installation of Vista or Huper Optik solar and solar solar security window film.

Home security includes covering the glass entry points and your first floor windows.

Florida homes are configured as one level ranch homes with easy access from the first floor.

Crime

I’d include privacy as a key issue particularly from the street level or from a neighbor’s home directly behind or next door to your home.

Here privacy and glare were the critical issues!

Now the heat has been reduced by 80% the glare by 86% and the views from the interior are preserved.

Some rooms are hotter than the rest of your rooms and interior living space. We have installed our Advanced Film Solutions on specific windows in homes that were creating the worst problem areas for our clients.

In the home below we installed our Huper Optik window film on this “floor to ceiling” wall of french pane glass.

HO

As your Florida neighbors discovered; Advanced Film Solutions has custom choices to solve YOUR specific glass problems.

We offer a range of choices in form and function and always expert installation.

Whether you live in a larger home or a smaller home or condo unit we have the right solution! 

Your interior views are preserved and your utility bills start dropping the moment these films are installed.

Now with the added incentives from our local power companies, these solutions become more affordable and pay for themselves in typically one year or less!
