Solar Art installed solar film to a home in Los Angeles, California! This was a really big installation that we were lucky enough to be a part of. They have a ton of glass throughout the home that they were looking to get filmed. There is currently window film on some of glass throughout the house, which the homeowner isn’t happy with for a few reasons. The first reason is they didn’t like the performance of the window film. They felt it was too dark for the home for the amount of heat it rejects. They also weren’t happy with the fact that it is only installed to some of the glass throughout the home.They thought it gave the home a non-uniform look. They do however, still like the idea of window film for their home because heat and sun fading are big issues. The homeowner did research on window film companies in their area and came across Solar Art’s website. On our website the homeowner learned that we install window film for similar purposes to homes just like theirs all the time! They decided to get a free estimate to learn more about what their different options are for their home! Our sales representative met the customer at the home with different solar film samples for them to take a look at. Since the customer wasn’t happy with how dark their original window film was, our sales representative started by showing the customer high performance solar films.
After going through all the samples and learning about the different benefits each solar film provides, they customer decided they liked a solar film made by 3M called Prestige 50. This solar film has low interior and exterior reflectivity. What this means is it’s not going to make the rooms dark or uninviting. While maintaining all views and still allowing in natural light, this solar film is still going to block 56% of heat, 44% of glare and 99% of UVA and UVB rays. Blocking 56% of heat is going to significantly help with the problem of the home being warm and uncomfortable, without the homeowner having to resort to the air conditioning. The customer was also worried about sun fading. They wanted to protect their furniture and floors from the sun as much as possible. That’s where UVA and UVB rays come into play. These ultraviolet rays are the leading culprit of sun fading. By blocking 99% of them, the homeowner is extending the life of their furnishings. The customer decided this was the best fit for their home and wanted to remove their old window film and install this solar film to all the glass throughout their home. Our installation crew went onsite and removed the old window film without damaging the glass and replaced it with this new solar film. In addition to solar film, Solar Art also services decorative window film, custom graphics, anti graffiti film, window security film and exterior building wraps in Orange County, Los Angeles, San Diego, San Francisco and Seattle areas!
