Saving Your Greenhouse Plants With Window Tinting

Window Tinting Keeps Your Plants Going Strong

Now that it is officially fall, temperatures are bound to start dropping accordingly. That being said, many gardeners have ended their work for the season. Of course, greenhouse owners have an advantage as they can keep their plants alive longer. Guess what? Window tinting can make growing your plants in a greenhouse, with glass windows, even more effective!

Window tinting has the capability of insulating a greenhouse so that the heat can remain inside rather than escaping into the outdoors. It’s a wonderful way to ensure that your glass greenhouse stays warm throughout the fall and even in the winter months to come. With the window tinting film doing the work to reflect the heat back inside your greenhouse for you, the price of your energy bill doesn’t have to be so expensive.

If you’re worried that window tinting would block the sunlight from getting to your plants, fear not! FormulaOne by AES has plenty of film options for you which still allow sunlight to come through while allowing your plants to survive Oklahoma’s fluctuating temperatures. Also, if you opt to have film applied to your greenhouse windows now, it will still provide year-round benefits. What we mean is that in the spring and summer months, it’ll work opposite and keep the cool air inside.

As if thriving plants weren’t a good enough reason to consider window tinting, think about protecting yourself. As you work long hours in your garden you’ll also be protected from harmful UV rays thanks to the design of our window tinting films.

Do you own a greenhouse? Are you ready to start seeing energy savings, protect your plants all year long, and have protection for yourself from harmful UV rays? To get started with your customized project, please feel free to give FormulaOne by AES a call at 405-513-6400.

Watching Football- Window Tinting

No Glare While Watching Football Thanks To Window Tinting

Window Tinting Saves Football Season!

Who loves having big football watching parties? Many people do! There’s the excitement of the food, the gathering of friends and family, and the cheering for your team in your own living room. One thing can make watching football on tv less than perfect and that is the glare from the sun or outside light shining through the window. What if we told you that window tinting can make your football watching experience much better? Believe it!

You see, with the window film you would be able to see all of the football action clearly on your tv screen. Doesn’t that sound exactly like what you would want while you cheer for your team? Perhaps, once you see the big difference you’d also be cheering for the decision to purchase window tinting for the windows in your home.

Have you ever found yourself squirming in your chair trying to avoid the glare that is displaying right in the middle of your tv screen? At some point you may just get used to watching your favorite football games with the glare, but what if you didn’t have to do that anymore? Window tinting is a better solution as it is specifically designed to reduce the glare and help protect the interior too.

The darkness or mirrored look isn’t an issue with many of our residential window tinting films, but if that is a look you’re going for then FormulaOne by AES does offer a wide variety of window tinting films that are mirrored tints or frosted for more privacy.

Are you ready to see a clear difference in your football watching experience? To get your estimate and learn more about which window tinting film would be best suited for your home, our representatives are available to help! Please feel free to give FormulaOne by AES a call at 405-513-6400.

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.

A Breakfast Nook Transformation With Window Tinting

Maintaining The Beautiful View With Window Tinting

Sometimes, people fall in love with a space, such as a beautiful breakfast nook, because the view to the outside world is outstanding. That doesn’t mean; however, that they always want to feel the harsh sun beating down on their backs or that the people sitting opposite them will desire to squint their eyes to avoid being blinded. What’s a person to do if they don’t want to obstruct their beautiful view? You may be surprised by the wonderful transformation from bare glass windows to glass covered in window tinting!

Today, our team at FormulaOne by AES wanted to highlight an idea for a project involving a breakfast nook just like the one in the picture. The wonderful part about many of our residential window tinting films is that they reduce heat by 34% to 83%. Additionally, the film helps to reduce glare from the sun and reducing the fading of furniture inside. This is all possible without having a mirrored or dark look to the film.

Imagine the difference from sitting in a place with an overload of sunlight to suddenly being able to enjoy sitting down in that breakfast nook. When the window tinting is applied the space becomes a comfortable spot that people would actually want to gather in for dining purposes. The film still would allow for plenty of sunlight to enter the space, but without the harmful ultraviolet rays.

No matter which room you would like to transform, window tinting makes a great choice for doing so as there are options for many different design styles! If you have a breakfast nook, a kitchen window, or another place in your home that you’d like to makeover we’d be happy to help.

Blackout Window Tinting For Day Sleepers

Blackout Window Tinting For Day Sleepers

Curtains Not Doing It? Try Room Darkening Window Tinting

When you work the night shift you may care very little about allowing light into your bedroom during the daytime. In fact, the only thing on your mind is how to effectively keep the light out so that you can get some much needed shut-eye. With that on your mind, it’s understandable that you may not want to spend your budget on super heavy curtains, blinds, or other window treatments only to have the possibility of light peaking out on the sides or to have them be closed for the majority of the time. For day sleepers a fabulous alternative to bulky window treatments is total blackout window tinting.

FormulaOne by AES has many window tinting options, but blackout film is worth the mention in that it offers those who work the night shift the opportunity to sleep comfortably during the day by easily darkening the room. This window tinting film is 100% opaque so it does just what the name implies; blacks out any light from coming through.

For that reason, it’s not only chosen by many adults trying to rest in total darkness. In fact, a lot of people hate sleeping with any kind of light on! Some parents have even chosen to put room darkening window tinting on the windows in their infant’s room.

For a practical, high-quality room darkening solution that doesn’t require a hefty budget or take too long to apply, FormulaOne’s blackout window tinting is a fabulous choice.

If you need us, please do not hesitate to give us a call at 405-513-6400. We look forward to helping our customers find the window tinting film that best suits their needs. If privacy is what you require, our staff at FormulaOne by AES would be happy to help!

Window Tinting- Arizona House

Window Tinting As A Smart Energy Saving Solution In Arizona

Beating The Arizona Heat With Window Tinting

If there’s one thing residents of Arizona know and understand very well it’s that no matter what time of year it is, the temperatures in this state can cause some extreme heat waves. This is especially true on most summer days. According to average recorded temperatures, gathered since 1981, nearly every day during the summer in Phoenix tops 99° Fahrenheit. For June, the average high temperature is around 104° Fahrenheit while the low is 77° Fahrenheit. With that being said, you can imagine that energy savings of any kind would be highly important in this state. Luckily, FormulaOne by AES was able to help out one resident with some much needed window tinting!

For the project we’re talking about, the homeowner’s number one concern was obviously energy savings. That was an easy fix with some of FormulaOne’s residential window tinting film. This slightly darkened film is able to reject heat up to 83%, depending on the time of the year. What the homeowner may not have realized until later on is that the window tinting film also offered a few other benefits.

This particular home was situated right next to the mountains, providing what should have been the most lovely view of the outdoor scenery. The problem when trying to peer out of the window at the mountainous horizon in the near distance was that the sun’s harsh glare was so bright it nearly blinded the homeowner from seeing anything! Now, with the addition of the window tinting film the homeowner can enjoy looking out of the window at the beautiful space outside without straining their eyes.

In addition to the film keeping the glaring sunlight from streaming in, the film protects carpet, flooring, and furniture with 99.9% Ultraviolet Ray rejection.

At FormulaOne by AES we fix problems like these every day and we’d love to help you with your next project. To contact us give us a call at 405-513-6400.

Office Space- White Frost Window Tinting

White Frost Privacy Window Tinting For An Office Within An Office

Creating A Private Space With Window Tinting Film

It’s a common concept to see sectioned off office spaces within a larger office complex, but for the person working inside of one of these office rooms walled with glass it can be a little difficult to truly have a private working space. Closing the door doesn’t do much good when other employees walking by can simply peer into the open glass and see you sitting at your desk. Not to mention, if you deal with customers they might appreciate a little more privacy while you’re handling their affairs. A perfect solution to this little problem is the installation of privacy window tinting film.

White frost window tinting film, to be precise, is fast becoming one of the most popular options for commercial building spaces when privacy is in question. The white frost window tinting film is wonderful as it provides an affordable, functional, and decorative way to easily separate two spaces. As you can see in the cover photo of this article, no one is going to be seeing inside this small office thanks to the perfectly placed white frost film. This example case study made the office worker very happy, indeed!

If you have an office within an office and the blank windows are causing you to feel overly exposed in your work station, we encourage you to consider white frost window tinting.

If by chance the frosted glass design is, in fact, something you are interested in achieving, FormulaOne by AES would be more than happy to help you do just that! We can have your project completed in a very short, allowing you to get back to work in privacy.

Please do not hesitate to give our window tinting team a call for your next frosted glass project (or any other film project you have in mind). FormulaOne by AES can be reached at 405-513-6400.

Pool House Window Tinting

Window Tinting Is Perfect For The Pool House

Summertime Custom Window Tinting Project

Having a swimming pool in your own backyard sure is a blessing and by adding a pool house to your property you’ve not only increased the value of your home, but you’ve made it possible to entertain more guests or make your pool time even better. Part of the beauty of a pool house is being able to enjoy sitting in the shade by the pool, but sometimes guests will need a little more privacy or you’ll desire less glare from the sunlight streaming in on your face. Window tinting is a very perfect solution for a pool house!

The pool house is a great way to provide a comfortable changing room, nearby bathroom, and a relaxing place to rest. Imagine that after you’ve build up an appetite from swimming you could rest in the pool house with enough light to see outside, meanwhile keeping the harsh ultraviolet rays from the sun from beating down on you.

Furthermore, you could choose to sit at the table inside, eat a snack, and look out over the sparkling water of the pool. Perhaps, you’d like to just sit inside and have a chat without the glare from the sunlight blinding you. In many ways, window tinting film makes it possible to truly feel a sense of calm.

Not only is the window tinting functional at keeping people safe from UV rays, but it also helps to keep your beloved furniture, carpet, flooring, and other interior decorations from fading. The tint will truly transform any ordinary pool house into a cozy place to escape.

At FormulaOne by AES, we have many window tinting films to choose from and we craft each piece of film custom to fit each window. We have a great time perfecting the little details to make unique window tinting for each and every customer.

If you have a window tinting project that you need help with this summer, we would love nothing more than to help you out. Please feel free to give FormulaOne by AES a call at 405-513-6400.

Pub W- Blackout Window Tinting

3 Ways Pub W In South OKC Benefits From Blackout Window Tinting

Custom Window Tinting For A “Chill” Ambience

Pub W is a restaurant chain that was originally established in 2013 and their most recent location opened up in November of 2016 on the south side of Oklahoma City. To maintain the ambience of a modern American pub with an atmosphere that makes you want to “chill out”, the restaurant owners opted to have blackout window tinting film applied to their windows.

This speciality, custom window tinting film offers the restaurant a myriad of benefits. Today, we’d like to discuss 3 ways in which Pub W is recognizing a few of those benefits even nearly 6 months after the application took place!

  • Room darkening benefits: By utilizing window tinting rather than other window treatment options, the owners of Pub W have been able to benefit from a more effective light suppression option at a low cost. The trouble with blackout curtains is that the maintenance to keep them cleaned is a lot more costly and strenuous than wiping down a window! Furthermore, blackout blinds often still allow light to peak in around the sides, making them a poor choice for total room darkening.
  • Increased energy savings: High quality blackout window tinting has a highly efficient solar reflectance rating and solar absorption properties. This translates to the owners of Pub W being able to reduce their energy bills thanks to the diminished need for air conditioning and the film also helps keep the interior warmer during colder months, too!
  • 100% privacy: If you’re walking outside the building at Pub W, you will notice that you cannot see inside the windows. That’s due to the completely opaque blackout window tinting. This sounds like it’s only a benefit for the diners, but truly if those eating inside don’t have to worry about people staring at them from outside they’ll feel more “chill” and be more immersed into the Pub W atmosphere.

Do you want room darkening, energy savings, and 100% privacy for your home or commercial property? Let FormulaOne by AES help you with custom window tinting! Give us a call at 405-513-6400!
