How Big Is YOUR “Footprint?” | Going Green With Window Film

Carbon Negative LogoToday, it seems as if nearly everyone is talking about “going green” in order to reduce energy consumption. There are many building products available that will legitimately do so. Insulation, energy-efficient windows, and high SEER air conditioning systems can drastically cut your monthly energy bills. And you can add one more – window film! Quality products such as SolarGard® and Panorama® have been studied, tested, and proven to reduce energy consumption by 30% and more! They have been shown to give a return on investment that is superior to the return from newly installed low-e windows – at considerably less cost!  SolarGard® and Panorama® films stop as much as 82% of the sun’s heat from penetrating through windows and glass doors; along with 99% reduction of harmful UV light – the same light that fades your furnishings and prematurely ages your skin! Your home or office interior will be made infinitely more comfortable; with no “hot spots” near the windows, and no annoying glare on TV’s or computer screens.

Many window film dealers claim to have “green” window film; and to the extent that it reduces energy costs, they can try to make that argument. But there is so much more to it than just that! What is the environmental impact of their manufacturing process? How environmentally responsible are their manufacturer’s facilities? In the entire industry, only SolarGard® and Panorama® window films have been proven to be “carbon-negative” – by means of a complete “life-cycle analysis,” and backed by the largest  and most extensive Environmental Product Declaration of its kind. All SolarGard® and Panorama® films are manufactured in the United States and adhere to the highest environmental and quality standards.

“Green” Awareness Brings Window Tinting “Full Circle” | Window Film

Clients’ Desire To Save Energy, Cut Carbon Emissions, Takes Window Tinting “Back To Basics”

Building "Green"When Solar-X of Sarasota opened in 1973, we found ourselves trying to conduct business in the midst of the OPEC oil embargo. People were vitally interested in conserving energy then, and Solar-X had the products that could help them. While peoples’ motivations for buying window film and tinting products have occasionally shifted, today everything seems to have come full circle.

For years, people were motivated by the increased comfort window films offered, or the often-touted protection against fading of furnishings. Hurricane Charley’s landfall on the Gulf Coast focused peoples’ attention on Safety and Security films. But with ever-rising energy costs, and a desire to reduce their “carbon footprint,” people are returning to basics. Window film reduces heat intrusion into your home. Reducing your energy consumption by installing window film reduces carbon emissions and saves you money.

Surprisingly, very little attention is given to window film products on “green” websites. That’s about to change. Most green websites tend to stress caulking or sealing around the edges of windows, or expensive window replacements. But window films like SolarGard® and Panorama® offer a better return on investment than low-e glass units. They are less expensive than new windows, they have lower “carbon costs” in manufacture, and, in fact; SolarGard® and Panorama® films are the only brands proven to be “carbon-negative.”  And when windows are perfectly serviceable, an affordable application of quality window film such as SolarGard® and Panorama® might be all you need to save substantial amounts of energy – not to mention saving up to 30% on  your utility bills.

Solar-X of Sarasota is the area’s largest SolarGard® dealer and the exclusive installer of Panorama® window films. All Panorama® films are backed by the Premier Plus® warranty; the longest warranty available anywhere in the film industry.
