National Gallery Of Art- Window Film

A Case Study: National Gallery Of Art’s Neutral Window Film

Llumar N-1050 Neutral Window Film

Since there are so many different types of window film these days it took some pondering to determine the best solution for a building as prestigious as the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. It didn’t take long before the answer came to them and their project managers.

Over the years the many paintings, sculptures, and graphic arts have become too exposed to damaging UV sunlight. The National Gallery of Art was built by 1937 and today there are over 100,000 art pieces inside worth keeping protected. Of course, the goal for any museum is to protect the treasures and keep them vibrant for as many people to enjoy as possible.

That’s precisely why the museum’s management agreed to have 10,000 square feet of Llumar N-1050 Neutral Window Film applied on the exterior windows. Now, thanks to the addition of that film the nation’s art is 99% safe from harmful UV rays. Since ultraviolet rays are one of the main reasons for fading floor coverings, interior furnishings, and artwork this transformation meant a lot!

As an additional bonus, the film also rejects 42% of all solar energy. This means that the energy costs for the museum have also decreased. How awesome is the idea os saving money?

We can cover any window in just about any window film we have access to! Do you have a home, office, or special building that you’d like to preserve with the help of window film? FormulaOne by AES is local, we professionally install Llumar window film, and we offer a lifetime transferable manufacturer’s warranty, too!

Windows- Window Tinting Film

Window Tinting Film Benefits Even In The Fall

Window Tinting Helps In Cooler Weather, Too

It seems it took Oklahoma a little while to catch up and leave behind those warm, summer days, but just because it’s no longer hitting close to 80 or 90 degrees outside, doesn’t mean that your window tinting will cease to be amazing. If you don’t have window tinting, you might just change your mind!

There is still sunlight in the fall right? Of course! Where there is sunlight there are the sun’s harmful UV rays, as well. No matter what the cooler weather brings along with it, it’s important to be prepared, because the sunlight is still present during the day. In fact, all day long UV rays will enter your home, causing furniture and flooring to fade over time. If you’re sitting inside, you’re at risk of soaking up UV rays, too. One easy way to be protected from the sun’s harmful rays is with window tinting film.

FormulaOne By AES offers several different window tinting options for residential homes, but the one things the varieties have in common is the ability to keep out harmful UV rays. Heating the home when temperatures drop is also something to think about. Did you know that windows alone are not effective when it comes to heating your home? That’s what makes window tinting even more amazing. As it works to keep out UV rays, reduced heating costs for the fall is an inevitable bonus benefit.

Protection couldn’t be more simple. If you want to know more about window tinting film benefits for the fall, please feel free to contact our team members.

If you own your house and you are ready to start seeing energy savings, protect your belongings all year long, and have protection for yourself from harmful UV rays, let’s get started with your window tinting project! Please feel free to give FormulaOne by AES a call at 405-513-6400.

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, up to 43% of a home’s utility bills goes to heating and cooling. When Oklahoma temperatures go from one extreme to the other, imagine just how hard your HVAC unit has to work in order to keep your home at a comfortable temperature.

Luckily, companies like EnerLogic have come up with a practical window film solution. We’ve discussed this awesome window film in previous articles, but it is so worth mentioning, again! What makes EnerLogic so great is the provision of an energy saving solution without totally blocking sunlight from entering a home. The natural light can still stream in, making it possible to enjoy, without harsh glares or without soaking up harmful UV rays along with it.

In the winter time this window film helps contain the heat from the building preventing the need to overwork the heater. With just windows blinds or curtains you miss out on the ability to still have natural sunlight enter the home. Additionally with other window treatments, you still have to worry about a harsh glare of the sun and UV rays. Imagine being able to control the light streaming in without the harsh glare on your computer screens, your television, cell phones, or reflections off of mirrors.

Commercial Window Tinting

3 Benefits Of Window Tinting For Commercial Properties

Window Tinting For Commercial Buildings

There are several benefits for commercial properties and buildings to install high-quality window tinting. The three main benefits include the provisions of; ROI, comfort, and privacy.

Return On Investment: 

First of all, window tinting can reduce the heat transfer from the sun by up to 85%. That means that window tinting your office windows could save the operation money! A building with windows of any size will see a return on investment, because heat stays out and the air conditioner can be used less. You don’t have to wait to see the changes either, applying window tinting yields immediate and measurable results.

Comfort: Having windows in your place of business means that it’s prone to problems like hot spots, glare, and heat that causes fluctuating temperatures. Quality window tinting; however, provides up to 99% protection of Ultraviolet light as well as reduces glares up to 95%. Commercial window tinting helps regulate temperatures by decreasing heat transmission and glare, getting rid of hotspots means that your air conditioner doesn’t have to work as hard to keep that one spot at the desired temperature meanwhile making the rest of the building frigid.

Privacy: Whether you want a little buffer between the outside world and your shop or you need individual office space privacy, a quality window tinting job can take care of the issue.

***BONUS***: Yes, we said three benefits, but there’s more! *Insert Genius Laughter*

Windows on the outside of a building are usually the weakest point of the structure. A thick security window film will help hold the glass together if it’s shattered. This combined with a dark film can reduce the likelihood of burglary. FormulaOne by AES offers several different films to meet your specific needs. We also offer films that provide insulating benefits year round, so when the winter months come around you’ll be able to stay warm while spending less. To get started with your next project, feel free to call FormulaOne by AES at 405-513-6400.

Top 4 Reasons To Switch From Curtains To Window Tinting

Window Tinting Countdown…Ready, Set, Replace!

Watch any home improvement show and you’ll see that curtains are a mainstay of many homes, but there are benefits to using window tinting film over having bulky curtains. Here, we provide the top 4 reasons you should think about replacing your curtains for window tinting:

#1- UV Protection: 

Unless you have your windows tinted, Ultraviolet Rays (UV) are going to come through your windows. Unfortunately, using a window shade or curtains won’t entirely block the UV light from getting through. The damage can be detrimental to your home’s furnishings and can fade carpet, walls, and the curtains themselves. UV rays can also affect your health. Rays of UV light are known to cause skin damage and, if overly exposed without protection, even cancer. Without a UV blocking window tinting film, chances are you and your home are being affected by UV light. Professionally installed window tinting can reduce UV light in your home by up to 99.99% offering a lot of protection.

#2- Saving Energy:

We talk a lot about energy efficiency here at FormulaOne, but it can’t be overstated. Getting professionally installed window tinting will help your windows perform better in the summer, keeping your cooling costs down. Our Enerlogic brand also helps the performance of your windows by increasing their insulation properties. Curtains simply can’t compete with good window tinting.

#3- Reducing Glare:

If you use curtains then you know you have to keep them closed all the time if the light from a windows falls on the TV. Sometimes, this means you have to choose between having a decent view and watching the TV. Window tinting fixes this issue by reducing the glare and allowing you to still use the window without blocking it off. Getting your home’s windows tinted is a good option if you’ve ever felt trapped behind heavy curtains.

#4- Privacy: 

Window films can prevent people from looking into your home as well as adding an extra layer of security. The films that we place on windows will make windows more durable, often preventing the glass from scattering once the window has been broken. Let’s see curtains do that.

The Benefits Of Using Enerlogic Window Film

How Enerlogic Can Benefit Your Home

There are many ways that you can save yourself money when it comes to home upgrades. Most people immediately think of CFL light bulbs, adding insulation, and weather stripping, but not many people think of Enerlogic (but they should). Enerlogic window film will essentially give a single pane window the insulating properties of a double pane window. This also carries over making a double pane window insulate as if it were a triple pane window. As an added bonus, the performance isn’t just for keeping the heat out during the hottest months, because it works all year round!

Tinting your home windows is the smartest way to save:

Tinting windows with the Enerlogic film will turn an ordinary home’s windows into thermal and energy efficient windows. The Enerlogic film filters out glare, excess heat, and Ultraviolet Radiation. We believe that homeowners utilizing this film will see a reduction in their energy consumption at a fraction of the cost that it would take to completely replace the windows. FormulaOne by AES also offers a lifetime transferable warranty, so you’re not just saving money, but you’re also adding value to your home.

Real results make for real savings: Our projected energy savings, listed below, was calculated by using the RESFEN program with homes that have clear single pane windows.

Over the course of the product’s life, homeowners with Enerlogic window film on single pane windows can save an average of $3,500 for their heating and cooling costs. The return on investment is fantastic, but adding value to your home is a great investment and it comes in at a fraction of the cost that you would expect to pay for completely replacing your windows with an extra pane of glass.
