Solar Art installed heat blocking window film to a home in Tiburon, California! If you aren’t familiar with the San Francisco area, Tiburon is a town located on the Tiburon Peninsula, which reaches south into the San Francisco Bay. A lot of the homes have beautiful views of the water, and this home was no different. The entire south side of this home faces the water and the homeowner has gorgeous views the entire day. The homeowner obviously wanted to be able to utilize and see the water, so there are glass windows on the south side of the home. Unfortunately, this side of the home gets a ton of sun that beams through the glass and it makes it unbearably hot. In addition to the heat issue, the customer was also having a problem with sun fading. They have a lot of furniture in front of the glass because they want to be able to sit and enjoy the view, but that furniture is being faded from the sun. The homeowner spent a lot of money on their furniture and their home and they were upset that it’s fading. They were looking for a solution for both of these problems without having to compromise their views of the water. They came across window film from Solar Art and decided to contact us for a free quote!
When our sales representative met the customer at the home, he learned more about the problems they were having and what they were looking for exactly. Our sales representative learned that the customer didn’t want to lose their views and they wanted a window film that would keep the aesthetics of the home the same, because they were only interested in installing the window film to the south facing windows. When our sales representative heard this he thought a solar film with no metals or dyes would be the best fit for this project. From there he showed the homeowner different samples of window films that would give them everything they were looking for. After looking through the different samples and learning more about them, the customer decided to have 3M Prestige 60 installed. 3M Prestige 60 is a heat blocking window film that will block 53% of heat, 32% of glare and 99% of UVA and UVB rays. Blocking 53% of heat will make a noticeable difference in temperature and will ultimately lead to a lower electricity bill because you will be using the air conditioning less. This heat blocking window film will also extend the life of your furniture and belongings because it does block 99% of ultraviolet rays, which are the leading culprit of sun fading. Since 3M Prestige 60 doesn’t contain any metals or dyes, it has low reflectivity and isn’t going to change the aesthetics of the home. The homeowner is able to only have the window film installed on the south facing windows and they don’t have to worry about their home having an un-uniform look. Most importantly, their views are going to remain completely in tact. The customer was extremely happy because they were able to get everything they were looking for from this heat blocking window film.
