Solar Art installed ceramic window tint to a home in Coronado, California! The customer originally called up Solar Art because they were having problems with heat throughout the entire home and they were also interested in increasing privacy during the day. The homeowner has large floor to ceiling sliding glass doors and windows throughout the whole home. They don’t have any blinds or shades installed because they want to keep with the modern look of the home. However, with that being said, the heat was getting to be unbearable. They were looking for a way to potentially reduce heat and increase privacy without having to install blinds or shades. They were shopping around online when they came across window film and Solar Art’s website. They requested a free consultation to meet with our sales representative to learn more about window film to see if it would be a good fit for their home. Our sales representative brought different solar film samples with him when he met the customer at the home. When it comes to increased privacy, decorative window film, dual reflective window film, and reflective window film are going to be your best options. Decorative window film, like frosted window film, is going to give you the maximum amount of privacy. It’s going to prevent anyone from seeing in or out of the glass. Dual reflective window film and reflective window film will still allow visibility out of the glass, but will prevent anyone outside from seeing in the home. Dual reflective window film and reflective window film are also going to block the most amount of heat.
After seeing the samples held up to their glass, the homeowner decided they didn’t like those options. They realized that they didn’t want the aesthetics of the home to change at all and were interested in seeing other options. Our sales representative showed the homeowner other samples of solar film and the customer really liked ceramic window tint. Ceramic window tint is very different from a dual reflective window film or reflective window film. Ceramic window tint contains no metal or dye and has very low reflectivity. It isn’t going to change the aesthetics of the home whatsoever, and it will still reduce heat and glare. Since ceramic window tint has very low reflectivity, it isn’t going to increase privacy at all. The customer decided they were okay with that because they really liked the fact that the look of their home wasn’t going to change at all. The ceramic window tint the homeowner chose will block 55% of heat, 53% of glare and 99% of UVA and UVB rays. This is going to make a noticeable difference in temperature in the home. The home should feel cooler and more comfortable, which should ultimately result in a lower electricity bill. Not to mention, those harmful ultraviolet rays are the leading cause of sun fading, so the homeowner’s wood floors and furniture will be protected from the sun. In addition to ceramic window tint, Solar Art also services decorative window film, custom graphics, window security film, anti graffiti film and exterior building wraps.
