Are you a homeowner having issues with heat, glare or sun fading? If so, this case study is geared towards you, so keep reading! Solar Art installed 3M Prestige Window Film to a home in Portola Valley, California! This homeowner was having a problem with the three issues we mentioned above. As you can see from the photos, the home has quite a few glass windows and doors. The homeowner likes the glass throughout the home, because as you can imagine, the home always feels airy and bright with natural light. However, with the natural light comes heat. Being located in Portola Valley, it is warm many months throughout the year. The heat radiates through the glass and makes the home hot and uncomfortable. The homeowner doesn’t want to constantly resort to the air conditioning and isn’t interested in blinds or shades because they do like the natural light. In addition to heat issues, the light coming through the glass reflects off of computer and TV screens, also making the home uncomfortable. People in the home aren’t able to relax and watch TV or work on the computer without having to deal with the annoying glare. And finally, we have sun fading. Again, light is always coming through the glass and the homeowners furniture and wood floors are constantly exposed to the dangerous ultraviolet rays. The homeowner really didn’t want to give up or cover their glass, so they researched different window treatment ideas online and found window film from Solar Art. After reading through our website and learning a little bit about the benefits of window film, they decided to request a free quote to see if it would be a good fit for their home!
Since this homeowner was experiencing the trifecta of problems from the sun, our sales representative decided to show them different solar films as potential solutions for their home. Each solar film provides different benefits. They each look different and reduce a different amount of heat and glare. After going through each solar film and learning more about them, the homeowner decided they liked 3M Prestige window film the best. The 3M Prestige window film the customer likes has low reflection, which means it will enhance views while still providing heat and glare benefits. It blocks 56% of heat, 44% of glare and 99% of UVA and UVB rays. Blocking 56% of heat will make a significant difference in the temperature of the home. The customer shouldn’t have to turn to the air conditioning as much and the home should ultimately be more comfortable. Blocking 44% of glare will also really help with the comfort in the home. The days of not being able to work on your computer or watch TV are behind you. Enjoy our home in comfort. Finally, this 3M Prestige window film will block 99% of ultraviolet rays, which are the leading cause of sun fading. This will extend the life of the homeowners furnishings and wood floors. The homeowner was really pleased with the results of the installation, because the 3M Prestige window film checked off everything on their list of needs.
