Advanced Film Solutions has kept pace with the large volume of installations we have scheduled throughout the Tampa-Bradenton-Orlando region.

 
It’s the heat that drives our business.
 

Hot, sweaty, humid afternoons that make your home uncomfortable and your electric bills ridiculous!

Our films block that heat.

Your home is cooler and those electric bills get cut by a third!

Our crews were busy in Bradenton completing a Huper Optik Ceramic installation in Lakewood Ranch.

The difference from what felt like a sauna to a cool, glare free environment was instantaneous when the last section was completed.

 Our client was “thrilled!”


Finally; we completed a solar security combination project at a home in Wesley Chapel using the LLumar neutral 20 8 ML shatter film.

As we head into the hottest time of the year, think cool energy savings with Advanced Film Solutions.

 
 
 

 

Tampa Bay Energy Savings Upgrades Advanced Film Solutions Starting Point

Commercial and government buildings are a major consumer of the nation’s energy demand.

This fact has profound implications for limited resources, costs and environmental impact (reduces energy consumption and CO2 emissions) both nationally and globally.

Lowering energy usage is also a good business decision for short and long term cost savings.

 

When building management considers energy savings and conservation measures they typically focus on lighting and Hvac upgrades.

Frequently overlooked in the planning and execution stage of these projects is the building envelope upgrade utilizing today’s solar control window film.

Advanced Film Solutions works closely with energy service providers as well as building property managers to determine the best possible solution based on the metrics provided.

We represent NFRC rated window films that offer significant energy savings that can be simulated and modeled through various DOE approved programs. ROI and internal rate of return for window film projects and ease of implementation make window film the best value of any retrofit project.

Payback within 2-9 years depending upon the orientation of the building.

The life cycle analysis compared to window replacement is also a major factor in promoting our solutions.

21st century window films are durable and supported by long term warranties from global leading suppliers like Eastman Chemical and Saint-Gobain.

Lighter coatings like Huper Optik and Vista won’t detract from the aesthetic appeal of the building or reduce the view or interior lighting.

Tampa Cool Buildings With LLumar, Vista Window Film Solutions

Sometimes an incredible cost effective solution can be glossed over when energy managers and facilities leaders brainstorm methods to consider to obtain sustainable energy solutions.

BUT

Window film has been around since the 1960’s.

Today’s new technology energy insulating coatings are durable, warranted against failure and won’t alter the appearance of your windows (unless that’s what you want!)

We have come a very long way from the old days of purple, hazy and murky reflective films of those early times.

So why do ESCO’s and energy cost consultants seem totally absorbed with HVAC and lighting retrofits?

  1. Window film isn’t as exciting as lighting systems or updated chillers.
  2. There remains a poor perception of window film possibly based on past installations where film failure was experienced or the observation of failed tint on cars or retail stores.
  3. Window film doesn’t appear to have champions that are promoting this solution.
  4. Glass curtain wall companies are keenly interested in window and glass replacement. Window film retrofits would obviate that requirement.

Window film is an industry in search of credibility.

 

That’s why we are pleased with the NFRC ratings that document performance characteristics and expectations of window film solutions.

We promote the objective reports that quantify energy savings and ROI!

Additional considerations:

  • All Vista , LLumar film factor out 99.9% of the UV- This preserves interior carpeting, paintings and furnishings.
  • Glare control will improve worker productivity and comfort.

  • Demonstrable tenant satisfaction based upon this improved comfort and elimination of cold and hot spots throughout your entire facility.
  • Improved efficiency of your Hvac and chiller systems since heat gain is blocked at the glass!

  • NFRC rated performance on all Eastman Commercial Window Films.

  • Energy Rebates apply through your local power company. Duke Energy, TECO, FP&L all offer attractive commercial window film rebate incentives.
  • Significant reduction in your monthly energy costs.

  • Improved curb appeal – many films will streamline the aesthetics of your facility and provide privacy.
  • Safety and Security (thicker iterations) for burglary protection and blast protection.

  • Interior designer architectural films can be employed on interior glass dividers and conference rooms.  These films enhance the beauty and functionality of your design planning.

We shout from the highest mountains the successful installations throughout the world where window film has altered perceptions and attained it’s proper position as the foundation component in a hierarchy of energy smart solutions.

Here for example our installation at NC State University!

Today’s facility manager has to be a jack of all trades.


Shrinking budgets, and economic concerns tightened budgets across the board.

Certainly sustainability and “greening ” of your facility are top of mind considerations but practical costs have to be measured and bench marked for realistic short and long term cost savings.

Energy costs are rising.

35524_535040636529412_1695691701_n

Energy costs are the second fastest growing expense area behind health care costs and are expected to increase as the economy recovers and companies increase their production.

Many of the low hanging fruit improvements have been implemented. (lighting upgrades, etc.)

Lower Electric Bills With Tampa LLumar Advanced Film Solutions Window Tinting

Perhaps this is the year that you execute your own energy conservation plan?
12399126315_b52e91cb1f_z

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%.

 psychiatristint

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!
