advantages of window film

Making your home more energy efficient can involve projects such as covering your roof with solar panels, erecting a backyard wind turbine or installing a new air conditioning system. However, there are other simpler, less-expensive strategies that can make a major dent in your energy bills, too.
“Solar-control films can block as much as 80 percent of the solar heat coming through glass into a building . In homes, film is usually applied to the interior surface of the window. The film can be almost completely clear, or darker to reduce glare and provide extra privacy. Some films even feature patterns and designs — and a few even mimic stained glass. It can decrease the heat load on the air-conditioning system and reduce energy costs.   Although window film is a passive, low-maintenance, energy-saving project, the product itself is by no means low-tech. The film consists of from 6 to 14 layers of polyester that have been treated chemically or with a metallic deposition process. The finished film is 1½ mils thick — that’s 1½ thousandths of an inch. “It’s complex to manufacture “The thought that it’s just a sheet of shiny plastic is not true.” Window film not only saves energy, it can keep what’s in your home from suffering the ravages of ultraviolet light, which can cause carpets, furnishings, fabrics and artwork to fade or discolor. The film companies estimates that 40 – 60 percent of color fading is caused by UV exposure. FPL recommends that homeowners install film on windows that face east, west and south. “ One final piece of advice about installing window film – you’re probably better off leaving the job to a pro. “If someone is very good at installing wallpaper, they could be good at installing window film,” I’ll even sell you the film if you think you can do it.  Everyone else should rely on a professional. Just remember the frustration you experienced when you tried to apply a dust-and air-bubble free protective film to your smartphone or tablet. Now imagine trying to do the same thing to a surface the size of a pool table.

Window Tint South Florida

Having window tint installed on the residential windows is a very smart thing that all South Florida homeowners should consider. From energy savings to looks and privacy, window tint brings outstanding benefits to homeowners and increase the value of residences.

For an example, depending on what window tint type and color used, homeowners can save up to 25% of energy/month since it blocks the heat coming into the homes. Florida homes often have a great amount of openings, glass windows and sliding glass doors added to the design of the homes to expose the landscaping, lakes and ocean views. However, it can be a nightmare trying to keep the rooms to a decent temperature, especially during summer time.

“We have been installing window film on homes all over South Florida for the past 30 years and it still amazes us the difference in comfort, temperature and saving it brings to homes and homeowners. Houses and condos with excessively exposure to the East and West side should experience great energy savings when covering the windows with window tinting” says Donnie Greenberg, owner of Light and Bright Window Tinting located in Weston, Fl.

Window Film comes in different sizes to minimize cost and waste and it is offered in different shades to accommodate styles and colors of homes. Window film projects are very detailed and required great preparation before installation. Therefore, the use of a professional and reputable company is a wise thing to consider. Cleaning and preparing the windows are a very important part of the process, since anything that come in between the film and the glass, during installation, can be seeing and spotted very easily.

7 Reasons to Install Window Film on Your Home or Office – Window Tinting Broward

Window Tinting has been around for many years, and with all the technology and improvement, it has proven to be a great investment for your home and even your office.It

Window Tinting Before and After

Window Tinting Before and After

provides many different benefits, form saving energy to burglary protection. We have selected seven reasons why you should have window film installed: 

  1. Reduces the amount of heat entering your home or office, which in turn helps to lower your energy bill from FPL, keeps the house cooler, especially the rooms that are tinted; the newer films today are lighter and brighter while blocking up to 80% of the heat. 
  2. Reduce fading and health risks by blocking up to 99% of the UV rays. Although the UV is the main cause of fading, the amount of light and heat are also factors which the solar films reduce as well. Window film provides an effective sunscreen for your skin and eyes against the harmful effects of the sun. 
  3. Glare reduction is cut down greatly, at least 50% or more of the glare is reduced by solar films, naturally the darker the film, the better the glare reduction. Window film is an excellent product to reduce the glare from harsh sunlight. 
  4. Energy savings also comes into play, the solar films block up 80% of the heat which in turn keeps your house cooler which in turn lowers your FPL bill. One of the questions we get all the time is ” how much can I save ” and that question is unanswerable, even FPL could not come up with an amount, to many variable questions, direction of the home/office, type of film, trees in the way, etc. but the right answer is, ” what ever room we tint, is much cooler than it was before,” now you won’t have to ask the wife to lower the AC and that equates to lower electric bills. 
  5. Safety and security is increased since human threats and forces of nature can instantly turn a pane of glass into dangerous flying shards. Window film provide an extra level of protection in case of breakage and increased security for your possessions against smash and grab robberies. 
  6. The appearance of the home or office is enhanced, shades of beautiful colors are available is a wide range of shades of levels of privacy, from clear to the very dark . Depending on your preference, the solar films also offer a certain amount of privacy during the day. 
  7.  It’s fast and at a reasonable cost, usually all jobs are completed within a day, larger jobs naturally take a little longer.

Light and Bright Window Tinting has been serving the South Florida residents and business owners since 1977. ” We are neat and clean, always leave the job site cleaner than we found it. Our expertise on assisting customers to find the right window tinting solution really helps to achieve complete customer satisfaction and we are proud of it” says Light and Bright Window Tinting Owner and Founder Donnie Greenberg.
