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.

The Benefits of Security Window Film – Window Tinting Weston

Security Window Film

Security Window Film Protection

Security threats to your home and building come in all forms, ranging from natural disasters to emergency situations, theft, terror attacks and break ins. All of these situations can put you and your tenants in harm’s way. A comprehensive, tiered security plan offering multiple layers of protection is the best way to provide the highest level of protection possible, and security window film adds a lot of credibility to it.

Llumar window film, Solargard window film, and Suntek window film companies do not allow window film professionals to call the security window film they make ‘ hurricane film ‘. The word “hurricane” gives the consumer false hope in the window film to the point that they think it takes the place of hurricane shutters, it does not. The security film does a terrific job of doing what it’s supposed to do, make the window shatter resistant, improves the strength of the glass and rejects a certain amount of the heat. Next to hurricane shutters, the security film is the next best solution when it comes to protecting your windows and family. 

Security Window Film Provides Shatter Resistance To Your Windows

Now, if we get a little technical, security window film is four times as thick as solar film, it’s an eight mil thick film, comes in clear to shades of neutral (gray), it comes with a very aggressive adhesive which grabs onto the window, which gives it the resistance to shattering, These films come with a life time warranty which covers bubbling, peeling, discoloring.

Donnie Greenberg, owner of Light and Bright Window Tinting, says “We have been serving the South Florida market for the past 35 years and we have seen, throughout the last 10 years, how much the security window film has helped families to keep their homes and windows safe. It is a great piece of mind and on the top of all can save you energy and money, and as a professional window tinting company we guarantee all our work/labor and film which carries a limited life time warranty”.

Tax Credit for Window Film – Residential Window Tinting Weston

If you have installed window film to the windows of your house in 2012, or planning to do so in 2013, you might be eligible for tax credits. The Fiscal Cliff has lead to a residential window tintingprovision by the Legislation which has created a tax credit for window film installed in residential structures. 

The new policy is retroactive to January 1 ,2012 and expires December 31, 2013, the qualifying credit is 10% of the film cost with a maximum total credit of $500. The tax credit directly reduces your income tax, which reduces the amount of income subject to tax unlike a deduction. The credit then directly increases the tax refund you receive or decreases the amount you have to pay and nobody like to pay. 

“Window film itself, when applied to the residential windows, can save the homeowner as much as 20% per year or more on electric bills. It is a great investment for the homeowner with a great return. With this new legislation, homeowners have a great incentive to take advantage of the benefits of the window film”, says Donnie Greenberg, owner of Light and Bright Window Tinting operating in South Florida since 1979. 

Residential homeowners can receive a 10% credit on the costs of window film, up to $500 but the installation charges do not apply. Since most of the window film companies, including Light and Bright Window Tinting located in Weston, do not separate the labor from material cost, you will need to ask your installer for the break down, and it’s usually around 33% of you bill. 

It is important to maintain copies of the dealer invoice and the manufacturer’s certification statement for your records. Complete the IRS form 5695 and file it with your income tax return and the forms are downloadable at which also has other energy incentives as well. 

We encourage you to take advantage of these savings and for more information on window tinting services and benefits click on Tax Credit for Window Film.
