Solar Art installed Vista window film to a home in Venice, California! Just like a lot of our customers, this homeowner has a ton of glass throughout their home. Living in California we are pretty fortunate to have sun throughout the entire year. Homeowners obviously want to utilize this, which is why homes are being built with so much glass. But, like you’ve read in our past case studies and blogs, this sun also lets in a ton of heat. The heat radiates through the whole house and makes it really hot. As you can see from the photos below, this home has a really modern and contemporary style, and blinds or shades just wouldn’t work. The customer was getting frustrated because not only was their home always really hot, the furniture below the glass was starting to get faded from the sun. To try and fix the heat problem the customer turned to the air conditioning a lot, which meant their electricity bills were always high. The homeowner was at a loss for what to do because they didn’t want to lose their glass windows, but they also didn’t want their home to be really hot and uncomfortable. They did some research to find a potential solution to their problem when they came across Solar Art’s website. They read about window film for homes and learned it can help to reduce heat and glare as well as lower electricity bills and protect against sun fading. They thought it might be a good fit for their home so they reached out to us to learn more!
After our sales representative learned the customer was having issues with heat, sun fading and their electricity bill was high, they knew solar film was going to be the best option for the homeowner. He brought different solar film samples to the home so the customer could learn about the benefits of each and see which one they liked best for their home. The customer was interested in reducing heat and lowering their electricity bill, but they still wanted to allow in as much natural light as possible. They didn’t want their home to be dark and uninviting. When our sales representative heard that, he showed the customer different solar films that are optically clear and will allow in natural light and not change the aesthetics of the home. After hearing all the benefits and seeing samples of each of the solar films, the customer decided they liked a Vista window film, specifically VS70. The Vista window film they chose blocks 53% of heat, 22% of glare and 99% of UVA and UVB rays. Blocking 53% of heat is going to make a noticeable difference in the temperature of the home. Blocking this amount of heat from entering the home will mean the customer is going to be using their air conditioning less, which should ultimately result in a lower electricity bill. Those UVA and UVB rays are the harmful ultraviolet rays that are the main culprit of sun fading. Blocking 99% of them is going to significantly prolong sun fading and extend the lifespan of your furnishings. In addition to the heat blocking benefits, the Vista window film the homeowner chose is virtually invisible and optically clear according to the manufacturer. What this means is you aren’t even going to notice it’s there. The look of the home is going to stay the exact same, which is what the customer was looking for. The customer was really happy there was a window film that checked off all their boxes so they decided to have it installed to windows throughout the entire home! In addition to Vista window film and solar film, Solar Art also services decorative window film, custom graphics, anti graffiti film, window security film and exterior building wraps.
