Do Something “Cool” on Earth Day 2011 | Window Tinting

Small measures can mean big results…

You don’t have to want to live “off the grid,” or in some 60 square foot tree house in order to qualify as someone who is genuinely interested in helping the environment. The fact that some people choose to live that way is commendable, but  people who don’t opt for that lifestyle can still honor the spirit of Earth Day. Little things can be done that don’t cost much and can mean a lot, environmentally speaking.  Isn’t that what Earth Day was created for?

Put rain barrels under your gutter downspouts.  The water saved can be used to water potted plants and landscaping. Inside, think about  a tankless water heater; beef up skimpy attic insulation, and caulk around windows and doors to eliminate leakage of heating and cooling.

At Solar-X of Sarasota, we’re inclined to recommend an installation of  carbon-negative SolarGard® or Panorama® window film. These high quality energy-saving products can reduce your air conditioning bill by 30% and more. Reduced energy consumption  means reduced production at the power plant, and that means fewer greenhouse gases. Did you know that the production of one kilowatt of electricity in a coal-fired power plant produces one kilogram (2.2 pounds) of carbon? Look at your next electric bill and see how many kilowatts you used.

SolarGard® and Panorama® window films are affordable. They can be installed almost immediately, with little or no disruption. They will give you a better return on your investment than low-e glass, and their long life span means they will keep on giving you positive return for years to come. They will improve the comfort of your environment, and protect you and your family from harmful ultraviolet light. They are a perfect way to honor Earth Day 2011.

Solar-X of Sarasota is proud to represent a manufacturer whose record of environmental stewardship is unimpeachable. Recognized as a “Climate Action Leader; first to perform a complete life cycle analysis of its products; first and only window film manufacturer to achieve an Environmental Product Declaration – the largest and most complete of its kind ever performed!

Hot weather’s On The Way! Start Saving Now | Window Film and Tinting

Summer Heat WaveSummer coming to Florida is as subtle as a brick through a plate glass window. Spring seems to last only days, and then the furnace door opens. Heat comes pouring through your windows and glass doors like a blow torch; causing discomfort, “hot spots,” fading, and sending utility bills through the roof!

Why put up with that? There’s no law that says you have to suffer through Florida’s summer heat! An affordable application of quality window film such as SolarGard® or Panorama® will put an end to discomfort instantly! By reflecting up to 82% of the sun’s heat and glare, these eco-friendly, “carbon-negative” window films will make your interior spaces uniformly cooler, more comfortable, and easier on the eyes. Stopping 99% of the harmful ultraviolet rays will reduce fading of carpeting, drapes, and furnishings.  And the reduction in energy consumed will substantially lower your utility bills – by up to 30%!

You can protect your home and family further with an application of Armorcoat™ “Safety and Security” sun control film. Four times thicker than regular sun control film, Armorcoat™ keeps glass in place after impact from violent weather or accidental contact, and provides a significant deterrent to possible burglary by making it much harder (and noisier) to gain entry.

Performance-certified by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC), these easily affordable products – installed by Solar-X of Sarasota – will help you get through this summer in comfort and safety.
