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 36,000 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!

Finding The Right Window Film For Florida Homes

Advanced Film Solutions is Florida’s leading window film installation company.

Our technicians have earned the Super Service Award from Angie’s List (based entirely on third party recommendation) for ten consecutive years and have earned an A Plus rating with the Better Business Bureau.

With more than 40 years experience we thought it might be helpful to give consumers a checklist for choosing the perfect window film for your home or business.

  1. Make certain that your installation provider has the proper insurance and credentials. All too often folks that install window film are self employed and have no coverage.
  2. There are many reliable window film solutions but you really want a coating that will be durable, warranted for a lifetime of functionality and appearance. Stay away from car tinting films or dyed films.Be extremely careful when a tinter offers “carbon” films or fancy sounding generic films that can cause thermal fractures on your windows or turn purple or bubble.BeFunky_null_6.jpg
  3. Make certain that the film being offered meets any HOA rules or potential deed restrictions.wer
  4. Make certain that the film selected is NFRC certified!This quasi-governmental agency ensures that the film being installed meets exact quantified characteristics and measured performance. That’s important because gimmicks can give the illusion that a film blocks more heat using misleading French Fry Lamps and rigged BTU meters.

Shatter Control Tampa Bay, Orlando, Sarasota Window Film

It happens.

Accidents; that is.

An errant golf ball flying through your dining room window. The kids down the block playing catch and OOPS! Your living room window is shattered.

Of course many homeowners face security concerns with burglaries through the pool door, front door glass or sliders.

Florida homeowners can defend their homes with today’s shatter control security window films.  These thicker (8 ML) films hold glass in place.

While an unprotected windows will shatter and the glass will fall to the ground; shatter films keep the glass in the frames.

This delays, denies and deters burglars. The film will keep the weather out as well.

Advanced Film Solutions has the widest portfolio of security films manufactured by Eastman Chemicals, Madico, Johnson, Hanita, SunTek and Armorcoat.

You might consider combination solar films that filter out glare, heat and provide privacy.

School safety issues are also a driving force for glazing security film!

Deed approved security films that give the security benefit but are less reflective and meet HOA rules.

Small wonder since these are notorious energy wasters and implementing upgrades has a direct bottom line benefit.


Window Film retrofits are less top of mind for a variety of reasons but the return on investment for a solar window film application provides the fastest ROI of any alternate strategy.

Life cycle benefits are also impressive as our commercial applications have a long-term life expectancy and our warranty is 15 years.

The tangible savings in monthly energy costs can be easily determined. Less well known is the increase in employee productivity based on the improved comfort of their working environment.
