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.

Low Cost, Big Savings, Exceptional Benefits! | Window Film

Who doesn’t like the idea of saving money? Who doesn’t want to protect their family? Who doesn’t want to be more comfortable in their home? Benefits such as these – and many more – can easily be achieved with a simple, affordable application of window film.

Issues such as comfort, safety, privacy, and fading are common to homeowners who want to improve their interior environment. Quality window films such as SolarGard®, Panorama®, and Armorcoat™ Safety and Security films can provide these benefits, and more:

                    • Improved comfort  
                    • Reduced glare
                    • Virtually eliminates harmful UV, while letting in natural light
                    • Lowers monthly energy bills and reduces your carbon footprint
                    • Added security, and safety from accidental contact with glass

While films share many common benefits, however, there can be vast differences in both performance and appearance. Films can run from virtually clear to darker, or more reflective. Many condominiums or gated communities have rules regarding film appearance that must be complied with. These and other considerations make it advisable to have an experienced professional help you choose a film that meets your performance goals, while pleasing your eye, and staying within your budget. Window Film dealer sarasota Florida

Protecting Your Interior Environment | Window Tinting

Everyone loves a bright, “airy” home. Large glass areas let in plenty of light and impart a feeling of well-being that creates a haven to be enjoyed by the whole family. But those sunny areas can also let in too much heat, glare, and harmful ultraviolet light. Heat; of course, creates discomfort and “hot spots” near windows, as well as overloading air conditioning systems and making your utility bills skyrocket. Glare can ruin your viewing pleasure, hurt your eyes, and affect your ability to see your TV or computer screen. Ultraviolet light is even more insidious. It causes fading of drapes, carpeting, artwork, hardwood floors – everything that makes your home…your home! It also causes skin cancer, premature aging, and damage to the eyes. And wherever you have visible light coming through your windows, you have invisble – ultraviolet – light, coming in with it.

All of these issues can be addressed with one affordable installation of high quality SolarGard® or Panorama® window film. Available in a number of colors and densities, these tested and proven products will reduce up to 82% of the unwanted heat entering your windows, providing a uniform, stable comfort condition that keeps your home cooler and eliminates eye-watering glare. An amazing SPF Factor of 285+ will protect you, your home, and your family from the harmful effects of ultraviolet light. SolarGard® and Panorama®  films can lower your utility bills by 30% and more; and they are “carbon-negative” – so while you are saving money and protecting your family, you are also doing something good for the environment.

 “Carbon-Negative” Window Films Put Solar-X of Sarasota In The Lead!

Public interest in “Carbon-Negative, Earth-Positive” window films by SolarGard® has been at a very high level during the fourth quarter; despite the anemic economy. Since SolarGard became the first and only window film manufacturer to undergo a complete “life cycle analysis” – charting the carbon cost and environmental impact of window film from manufacture to ultimate disposal – people have been flocking to get more information about this environmentally conscious company and their products. A few examples:

•  SolarGard® and Panorama® window films save 1001 times more greenhouse gases from entering the atmosphere than were used or created during their manufacture.      
•  The carbon cost of one square meter of SolarGard® or Panorama® window film is less than one kilogram. A low-e, wood framed window of the same size has a carbon cost of approximately 253 kilograms!

Reduce Your Carbon Footprint With Window Film | Window Tinting

“Green” Before Anyone Knew What “Green” Was…

Today, everyone is talking about “going green” to reduce energy consumption. Solar-X of Sarasota has been installing “green-friendly”, energy – saving window films since 1973!  Thirty seven years ago, we just called it “saving money.” We didn’t know we were helping people “go green.” And while we always knew that window film was wildly successful in helping to reduce energy consumption in homes and offices, hard data is coming to light on an almost daily basis that shows  just how good these products really are. For example, window film has a better return on investment (ROI) than low-e glass. And while the carbon cost of manufacturing one square meter of window film is less than one kilogram; the carbon cost of manufacturing one square meter of wood framed low-e glass is 253 kilograms!  Here is another interesting fact: over their lifetime, “carbon-negative” SolarGard® and Panorama® window film and tinting products will save 1001 times more carbon emissions than it took to make them! It’s no surprise then, that these high quality films are at last being included in important Federal energy legislation; or that they help qualify for LEED credits in six categories! Finally, SolarGard® and Panorama® window films are the only film brands in the industry to have been measured and certified as carbon-negative!

Helping Bradenton, Sarasota, Lakewood Ranch, and Venice consumers improve their comfort, save energy, and reduce their electric bill is nothing new to Solar-X of Sarasota. Our NFRC* Certified window films reduce heat, glare, and fading in your home or office; and save you money while they do it. Why not let us save you some “green” today?  We’ve been right here all along…
