Window Tinting North Carolina

Solar control window film has been around for years, but recent innovations in coatings technology has delivered films that break all the rules and common misconceptions which have discouraged consideration of this energy saving option.

Typically thought of as a dark or shiny “tint” that is useful only in the hot summer months, today’s newest generation of clear solar control films can turn a regular window into a smart window.
Using “natural light” films, homeowners can maintain and even improve the clarity of their windows while blocking out 55% of the sun’s summer heat and insulate against or in the case of Enerlogic reradiate heat back into their homes in winter.
The truth is solar control window film can save you money year-round.

While most people think of window film during the hot summer months, the newer films can provide added savings by helping lock in winter heat, providing energy savings year round.
And with their ability to block 99% of the sun’s damaging ultraviolet radiation, these films can play a vital role in preserving our investment in our furnishings, flooring and artwork.

So, as homeowners look to their homes as their refuge from these troubled times, it’s good to know that there are reasonably priced steps available to help them take full advantage of their investment.

Clear “natural light” solar films deliver:

Clarity – maintaining natural light, important on cloudy days, while providing superior insulation.
Maximum flexibility – allowing homeowners to use the film selectively – only where needed – without changing the appearance of filmed windows. No need to waste money filming other windows simply to maintain uniform appearance of window glass.
Reduced demand for costly interior lighting upgrades to offset loss of light due to installation of tinted window film.
Regardless, if clear film or tinted film is applied to a home, the benefits will start to show immediately. Despite the time of year, homeowners can realize significant savings on their heating and cooling bills. Furthermore, repairs needed to cooling and heating systems will be reduced as the need to run these systems will be reduced. Do the math in a short time period this investment will pay for itself, then continue to save you money on energy bills, furniture upholstry and hard wood refinishing.

Window Film Raleigh, NC Enerlogic Energy Savings

www.SunProtectionLLC.com

 

Situation:The Marriott in Winston-Salem, North Carolina, has always

 

operated with the comfort of its guests as a priority.

 

One aspect of guestroom comfort that the hotel’s managers

 

couldn’t fully control, however, was the blazing summer sun

 

streaming into the building’s windows. Even operating at full

 

capacity, the building’s HVAC systems could sometimes only

 

cool the sunniest rooms down to 78°F, and more than a few

 

guests indicated this was too warm.

 

Solution:

 

The building’s owners contacted

 

Sun Protection, the local

 

Vista™ window film dealer, in the hopes of controlling the

 

sun. Enerlogic®35 window insulating film proved to be the

 

best solution. Its Low-E capabilities help keep solar heat

 

from entering rooms in hot weather and help prevent radiant

 

warmth from escaping during cold weather. The net result

 

is more constant interior temperatures plus energy savings,

 

UV protection, and reduced glare—all without a dark, tinted

 

appearance.

 

The film’s quick installation time made it easy for crews toservice rooms between check-out and check-in. As a result,

 

nearly 800 windows were covered in about 10 days without

 

disruptions to bookings.

 

Results:

 

Kevin Grass, a LEED AP and principal in the investment group that

 

owns the property, affirms that “the comfort level of our guests

 

has improved. We were getting a lot of complaints from guests

 

about being too hot in the summer and too cold in the winter.

 

With the EnerLogic film installed, those complaints are now gone.”

 

From an HVAC standpoint, their same mechanical systems can now

 

achieve an interior cooling temperature of 72°F, even in rooms

 

that were once the hottest.

 

According to Grass, management’s primary goal

 

was to enhance guestroom comfort; however,

 

they’ve also enjoyed the additional benefit

 

of energy savings. Annual heating and

 

cooling costs are expected to drop 5%,

 

with corresponding savings in excess

 

of $24,000. Projected payback for the

 

project: just over three years.

 

Ultimately, the hotel’s owners discovered EnerLogic film to be

 

an excellent alternative to

 

replacement windows, providing

 

a comparable enhancement

 

in performance, but with cleaner

 

installation and more rapid payback.

 

Typically about one-third of a building’s annual heating and cooling costs are directly related to window performance.

In the past, improving year-round window performance meant committing to costly window replacement. But now Solutia

has developed EnerLogic, a series of window films that provide the most advanced glass insulation technology on the market.

Not only does EnerLogic window film help keep heat out during the summer (just like conventional window film), it is the only window film that helps

keep radiant heat inside during the winter.

As the first all-climate, all-season window film on the market, EnerLogic window film actually improves a window’s year-round insulating performance

up to 92% versus 44% for conventional window film. This difference typically provides up to three times more overall annual heating and cooling savings

than other films. To create such impressive savings, EnerLogic film uses a patent-pending low emissivity (low-e) coating. This coating consists of a microthin metal

or metallic oxide layer that redirects solar and radiant energy back to their source to substantially reduce harmful UV rays, as well as uncomfortable heat and glare.

The newest member of the EnerLogic family, EnerLogic70, actually uses a layer of gold for its excellent corrosion resistance and ability to reflect heat and radiation.

While replacing windows is still a viable option for cutting energy costs, consider that installing EnerLogic film typically costs about one-third the cost of window replacement.

The film is easy to install on the interior surface of windows, and requires little, if any, disruption of daily life within the building. By utilizing existing windows, window film avoids

the need to send old windows to the landfills. Best of all, EnerLogic film often pays for itself in savings in less than three years – compared to the 15 – 20 year payback often

associated with replacement windows. And because EnerLogic film often qualifies for utility company rebates, a return on investment may come even quicker. With annual savings

of up to 40% on heating and cooling costs, EnerLogic window film offers a crystal clear solution for energy efficiency.

Whether a commercial office building, school, health care facility, retail space or residence, EnerLogic window film can improve the comfort and energy efficiency of almost

any building. Historic sites have even benefited from EnerLogic film’s ability to adhere to the irregular surface of antique window panes. EnerLogic film also helps protect the

investment made on interior furnishings by blocking up to 99% of the harmful UV rays that can cause fading. Even with all this protection against solar heat, EnerLogic70 allows

building interiors to remain bright and vibrant with its visible light transmission (VLT) of up to 70%. (VLT indicates how much sunlight window film allows in while continuing to

block solar heat; EnerLogic 70’s high VLT makes the film virtually invisible.)

Enerlogic window film is already achieving real-world results. “As a project manager of a new SILVER LEED building that had serious heat and glare issues on the Northwest side,

we were challenged to find the right solution to assist with these issues” says Robert Newton, Project Manager at NovusINT. “After much research on the available options, we chose

EnerLogic window film as the solution. Not only has it reduced the glare (resulting in a more comfortable and productive environment for the employees), but it also has reduced the

load on the heating and cooling units which in turn has saved us money. Based on our annualized savings, it will be cost-neutral in about 3 years. Solutia has been great to work with in

ensuring that the product is of the highest quality and that our satisfaction is guaranteed. Not only do we have a SILVER LEED certified building, we have one that the employees are comfortable

in all seasons!”

Developed as part of Solutia’s ongoing commitment to energy efficiency, the EnerLogic window film series features a patent-pending, low-e coating that effectively transforms the insulating power of single-pane windows into double-pane and double-pane windows into triple-pane for year-round energy savings.
Building on the success of EnerLogic 35, launched in 2010, EnerLogic 70 is the next generation of EnerLogic glass insulation technology that combines industry-leading low-e performance with a virtually invisible appearance.
“The performance of this newest EnerLogic film is unprecedented,” said Wing Kwang, global business director for Solutia’s Performance Films division. “With visible light transmission of up to 70 percent, EnerLogic 70 window film offers energy savings with a clear view that ultimately maintains the look of the existing glass.”
With EnerLogic 70 low-e window film, heat from the summer sun is reflected away from windows, easing the stress on air conditioners. In winter, radiant heat from a home’s heating system is directed back into the room, decreasing energy use, improving comfort and reducing energy bills during both seasons.
“Today, energy savings and efficiency are not part-time propositions,” said Jeremy Verstraete, global business manager for the Performance Films division’s architectural segment. “Windows typically account for 25 percent of annual heating and cooling costs, but can be responsible for as much as 40 percent. Energy efficiency must be managed across all seasons in every possible climate region.”
In addition to reduced energy bills, further savings and benefits can be attained by choosing EnerLogic 70 window film over other options, such as window replacement. Unlike window replacement, professional window film installation is quick, clean and non-intrusive. Additionally, the refuse generated by window replacement often ends up in landfills.
EnerLogic window film was recently recognized by Architectural Products Magazine for its excellence in product innovation for the following categories: Solar Control Protection, Moisture/Thermal Protection and Windows/Doors/Openings.

It works in the Winter too!

As a company that sales and installs solar window films the winter usually is full of commercial,decorative and automotive projects, with the residential client only if they realize that you still get UV and fading in the winter and even when it is cloudy, but you also lose heat through the windows during the winter. Windows and doors contribute up to 30 percent of heat loss and gain in a home, by direct conduction through the glass and via air leakage through the window assembly.[2] The US Department of Energy (DOE) estimates that heat loss and gain through today’s windows account for approximately 4 percent of total domestic energy consumption.[3] Efficiency strategies vary widely based on regional climate considerations: windows can account for 25 percent of of a typical home’s heating energy load in cooler climates, and as much as 50 percent of the cooling load for homes in warmer climates.[4] Windows cover between 10 and 25 percent of the exterior surface area in new homes and selecting windows designed to either retain or repel heat is an important aspect of a whole-house energy efficiency plan. The DOE advocates reducing the environmental emissions from heating and cooling systems—some 150 million tons of CO2 alone annually—from 20-50 percent. Typical kwh saved per day with our Enerlogic $3.87-$4.18 so at 30-31 days on the energy bill that would save 115.00-130.00 per month!

Enerlogic window films

Tuesday, February 15, 2011
How does EnerLogic compare to other film technologies?
EnerLogic provides unparalleled glass insulating capabilities – no other window film even comes close. With its patent-pending low-e technology, EnerLogic has the best insulating performance of any window film available.
Improving a window’s insulating properties provides year-round energy savings. When you compare how much EnerLogic improves a typical window’s insulating performance to other film technologies, you clearly see that EnerLogic is in a class by itself.(3)
(3) Based on percentage improvement in average annual insulating properties of 6mm glass with film as compared to the same glass without film. Product: VEP35 SR CDF
How Does EnerLogic upgrade windows?
Putting this unmatched insulating performance to work, EnerLogic is able to transform existing poorly-insulating windows into energy-efficient windows. The insulating power of EnerLogic gives single-pane windows the annual insulating performance of double-pane windows – and gives doublepane windows triple-pane performance.(4)
To get such improvement in performance from a thin, transparent window film is impressive – and much more affordable than window replacement.
Single-pane clear windows plus EnerLogic= Clear dual-pane windows.
Clear dual-pane windows plus EnerLogic= Clear triple-pane windows.
Premium Views, Premium Protection
While natural sunlight offers plenty of positives for your home, there is a downside to letting the light shine in: increased energy costs, excessive heat, glare, and the fading of interior furnishings.
By eliminating or reducing these negative effects, Vista™ Window Film allows you to bask in the benefits of your windows, transforming the comfort and efficiency of your home.
Clear Savings
While damaged or deteriorating windows simply have to be replaced, Vista Window Film provides an affordable alternative to replacement when your goal is to improve energy efficiency. In fact, the cost for quick, professional installation is about one-tenth the cost of replacement windows!
Clear Protection
If you’ve remodeled, redecorated, or otherwise updated your home, your new carpet and the finishes on your new cabinets, furniture, and hardwood floors can all be damaged by the sun. Vista Window Film will help protect all these surfaces, prolonging their beauty by screening out up to 99.9% of the UV rays that cause fading.

Window Film is the most effective retrofit solution.

ROI-Commercial Property Managers Compare Window Film USA
Can anyone deny that this has been a very troubling year for commercial property managers across the USA? Budgets are being slashed and tenant occupancy and tenant satisfaction are high profile topics in your management meetings.
It’s all about cost savings and going green. Taking advantage of government energy incentives and local power company rebates makes more sense now than at any time since the Oil Embargo of the 1970′s.Certainly the window film solution has come up before and many property managers have a distinctly poor perception of this retrofit solution. Why?Many of the older technology window films used dyed films that eventually fade or change colors. The effectiveness in reducing heat gain and lowering the demand on chillers and Hvac was very difficult to quantify. The aesthetics in many cases lent credence to the expression that “The cure was worse than the disease!”The fact that some manufacturers of window film still make dyed films or dyed metal combination films that are installed on commercial glass is appalling! The fact that this happens is evident by the purple glass you can see on many of the retail and commercial buildings throughout the USA.Sun Protection represents the leading manufacturers and brands of window film in the USA. We aren’t shy about promoting these fine products and it is our direct experience in installing every one of these films and their performance and durability that separate our knowledge base from any other window film installation company. This is the difference between Sun Protection and that window film company you may have worked with in the past.There are no absolutes in window film. For example a reflective 20 % VLT Silver film is available from many different sources with a price spread that might amaze you. One company might have the temerity to charge twice as much for a film that is in nearly every respect the exact same film as one at half the cost. Some companies will simply re-box a film and sell it under another better known label. No added value just added cost.We won’t play that game. . .PERIOD!

· We have committed our portfolio to non dyed films 100%.
· We will only recommend NFRC certified films for commercial buildings. Our commercial division offers 10 and 15 year commercial warranties.
· LEED Points for sustainable buildings.
· We offer highly competitive investment costs that are certainly in line with the ROI our clients demand.
· We are fully insured (2.0 Million) and have earned a long list of third party recommendations.
· We are objective concerning the window film solution that best meets your requirements. We can say this because we offer the best of the best films rather than one brand!
Consulting with your management team and analyzing your requirements is the first step in the process. Window film solutions are not identical. Consider the interior and exterior reflectivity of the window film for example. Many films are highly reflective while other films are less reflective from the interior or exterior.Take the hue of the film. Many films are neutral in appearance while others have a distinct color shift to the blue or green.There are bronze films and highly reflective spectrally select silver films.There are adhesives that are clear and will last for decades and there are pressure sensitive adhesives that are simply not durable enough for the daily wear and tear of a commercial office or retail environment. These films will present a hazy distorted appearance that will raise serious concerns in your building. There are virtually clear nano-ceramic films that won’t alter the aesthetics of your building therefore maintaining the curb appeal that your tenants appreciate.

Adding to the market confusion has been a recent influx of non NFRC rated Chinese and South Korean based IR dyed films that are flooding the US Market. These films start with very impressive aesthetics and performance numbers. The problem is their inability to maintain this efficacy during a normal life cycle of 20 years. In a ironic sense these IR dyed films have the potential to follow the same course as the dyed plastic films of the 1960′s and 1970′s.We prefer that our clients get educated about window film. We want you to call local dealers or home depot then call us for an objective comparison. Certainly the fact that we offer the brands that comprise 95% of the US market share is absolutely no coincidence! We believe that the more knowledgeable you become about window film solutions the better our chances are to meet your goals and bottom line targets with Fact- Credentials and Performance on your buildings’ glass now and for the next 25-50 years!

Window Film Tax Credits *

2009 Tax Credit for Window Film
A provision in the recent American Recovery and Reinvestment Tax Act of 2009 (ARRA) has significantly changed the existing tax credit opportunity for window films installed in residential structures. Under the new policy, qualifying credit has effectively tripled from 10% to 30% of film cost with a maximum total credit of $1,500, up from the previous cap of $500. The new policy goes into effect retroactively from January 1, 2009 through to December 31st of 2010.The ARRA also makes product compliance standards for the tax credit more stringent. Please review the LLumar and Vista Qualifying Products Certification Statements that outline which films, when installed with different window/frame types, qualify for climate zones defined by the 2009 International Energy Conservation Code. These new standards went into effect February 17, 2009.
Money in Your Pocket
A tax credit directly reduces your income tax, unlike a deduction, which reduces the amount of income subject to tax. The credit then directly increases the tax refund you receive or decreases the amount you have to pay. Homeowners can receive a 30% credit on the costs of window film, up to $1500. Installation charges do not apply.
Making it Simple
Complete IRS form 5695 and file 2009 Income Tax Returns by April 15, 2010. Forms are downloadable at http://www.energystar.gov/, along with a list of other available energy efficiency tax credits. Maintain copies of the dealer invoice and the manufacturer’s certification statement for your records. Nothing herein, including any content set forth in any documents or websites made accessible hereon, shall be deemed to constitute tax advice. CPFilms Inc. is not a tax advisor. Please consult your tax advisor regarding your eligibility with respect to any tax credit.

Our most commonly asked Questions

Frequently Asked Questions and Answers
Will window film really stop fading of fabrics?
How long will film last?
How should I clean my windows after film is applied?
Will window film kill my house plants?
Can Window Film be used on Low E windows?
Will window films cause glass to break?
Will Window Film Really Stop Fading Of Fabrics?
There are six factors affecting fabric fading:
1. Ultraviolet Light 2. Visible Light 3. Heat and Humidity 4. Chemical Vapors (including ozone) 5. Age of Fabric 6. Dye Fastness
Clear single pane glass (1/8″ to 1/4″) will reject 23-28% of the ultraviolet light from the sun. Insulated glass is slightly better, rejecting 36-41%. Window films installed on glass reject 95-99% of solar ultraviolet light.
Different types of clear glass and window systems will reject 13-29% of the solar heat. With window films, 80% solar heat rejection can be obtained.
No window film can eliminate fading. It can, however, offer maximum protection from fading due to solar ultraviolet light and solar heat.

How Long Will Film Last?
The effective life of window film will vary by the type of film, type of glass, window construction, compass orientation of glass, and in which part of the world the building is located. There are documented cases of film lasting 12 to 22 years or more in some instances. This should not, however, be assumed to be the normal expected life. Our quality solar control window films for residential use are warranted by the film manufacturers for a lifetime for the life of the home. (certain products may have extended coverage). The warranty includes an address to contact the manufacturer directly should any questions arise either before or after the installation of the window film. If you use some of the other products we carry that have a PS adhesive system these films will not last the life of the home.

How Should I Clean My Windows After Film Is Applied?
Windows with film applied are easily cleaned without damage to their appearance as long as a few common-sense guidelines are followed:
1. Use a soft clean cloth, soft paper towel, or clean synthetic sponge.
2. Use a soft cloth or squeegee for drying the window.
3. Use any normal glass cleaning solution which contains no abrasive materials.
The availability of scratch resistant coatings as a standard feature of quality films has virtually eliminated the need for extra special precautions in cleaning.

Will Window Film Kill My House Plants?
In most cases if a house plant is already receiving adequate light the use of window film will not harm it. New growth or flowering may be retarded, and, for a few days, a plant may go into a state of shock while it adjusts to the light change. If a particular plant normally wilts by the end of a sunny day, it will actually

Energy Savings,Leed Points and Incentives

We are a Trade Ally with Progress Energy and as
companies make changes to improve their energy efficiency, window film is becoming one of the key options alongside upgrading lighting and waste management. Unlike light bulbs, the glass in your facade is not easily replaced and doing so would incur huge costs and downtime – something that all companies cannot deal with. Window film is a layer of plastic applied to the inside of existing glass, bringing with it upgraded specifications, light management and solar control. As an energy saving product, window film is ideal. It reduces the amount of heat coming into your building by blocking solar energy. This in turn reduces the load on your air conditioning unit and will reduce your monthly energy bills. We have a full range of films to suit all building types and in many cases an upgrade to the building’s efficiency is coupled with improved visual appearance. With our calculation software we can consult with clients about their type of glazing and required film product; then once we have all the data we can provide them with an actual estimated figure that they can show to their top management to implement these changes. The products can qualify for up to 2 Leed Green Building Certification Credits and help work towards earning the Energy Star* for the building.

EnerLogic low-e glass insulation technology revolutionizes window film.
A building can only be energy-efficient to the extent that its windows are energy-efficient. In summer, windows allow too much heat to enter, forcing cooling systems to work harder and making cooling costs climb. But in winter, they allow too much heat to escape, forcing heating systems to work harder and making heating costs climb.

Historically, most window films have provided only a summer solution – a solution for only part of the year.

EnerLogic is different.

It works year round – like other major energy saving measures such as high-efficiency lighting, new control systems, and HVAC upgrades.

In summer, EnerLogic keeps the heat out, like traditional reflective window film. But in winter, EnerLogic does what reflective film can’t do: It locks the heat inside. So you get a perfect balance of energy efficiency, comfort, and cost savings – all year long.

And EnerLogic does this with outstanding optical clarity that’s fully compatible with high-efficiency lighting. It looks great in any light.

How does EnerLogic compare to other film technologies?
EnerLogic provides unparalleled glass insulating capabilities – no other window film even comes close. With its patent-pending low-e technology, EnerLogic has the best insulating performance of any window film available.

Improving a window’s insulating properties provides year-round energy savings. When you compare how much EnerLogic improves a typical window’s insulating performance to other film technologies, you clearly see that EnerLogic is in a class by itself.(3)

How Does EnerLogic Work?

EnerLogic’s patent pending low-e coating redirects solar and radiant energy back to their source… for energy savings in every season!

When professionally applied to the inside surface of your existing windows as a microthin, ultra-powerful low-e window film, EnerLogic adds as much as 92 percent more insulating power to your window glass.

Sunlight still enters, but harmful UV rays, discomforting heat and glare are substantially reduced.

So while your building’s occupants enjoy a whole new level of comfort, you enjoy a whole new level of savings. And it looks great with high efficiency lighting (low iridescence).

EnerLogic low-e glass insulation technology revolutionizes window film.

A building can only be energy-efficient to the extent that its windows are energy-efficient. In summer, windows allow too much heat to enter, forcing cooling systems to work harder and making cooling costs climb. But in winter, they allow too much heat to escape, forcing heating systems to work harder and making heating costs climb.

Historically, most window films have provided only a summer solution – a solution for only part of the year.

EnerLogic is different.

It works year round – like other major energy saving measures such as high-efficiency lighting, new control systems, and HVAC upgrades.

In summer, EnerLogic keeps the heat out, like traditional reflective window film. But in winter, EnerLogic does what reflective film can’t do: It locks the heat inside. So you get a perfect balance of energy efficiency, comfort, and cost savings – all year long.

And EnerLogic does this with outstanding optical clarity that’s fully compatible with high-efficiency lighting. It looks great in any light.

Premium Views, Premium Protection

While natural sunlight offers plenty of positives for your home, there is a downside to letting the light shine in: increased energy costs, excessive heat, glare, and the fading of interior furnishings.

By eliminating or reducing these negative effects, Vista™ Window Film allows you to bask in the benefits of your windows, transforming the comfort and efficiency of your home.

Clear Savings

While damaged or deteriorating windows simply have to be replaced, Vista Window Film provides an affordable alternative to replacement when your goal is to improve energy efficiency. In fact, the cost for quick, professional installation is about one-tenth the cost of replacement windows!

Clear Protection

If you’ve remodeled, redecorated, or otherwise updated your home, your new carpet and the finishes on your new cabinets, furniture, and hardwood floors can all be damaged by the sun. Vista Window Film will help protect all these surfaces, prolonging their beauty by screening out up to 99.9% of the UV rays that cause fading.

Let us show you why Vista Window Film is the choice of home owners throughout North America.
