Window tinting is perfect for a pool house

Window Tinting for the summer home

Having a swimming pool in your back yard can be quite the blessing. It gives you a great place to play and gather in the summer, raises the value of your home, and generally adds a nice atmosphere to a home. Part of the attraction of a pool house is being able to enjoy sitting by the pool in the shade relaxing. Sometimes though, you or your guests need a little more privacy or you want less glare from the sunlight streaming in on your face. The perfect solution to many of these problems is window tinting!

A pool house is a great way to provide a multitude of amenities to you and your guests. It can be a comfortable changing room, nearby bathroom, or just a relaxing place to rest. Imagine being able to come into your pool house after building up an appetite from swimming with enough light to see outside, while also keeping out the harsh ultraviolet rays from the sun. You could enjoy a nice cookout style meal without the fear of getting sunburned!

You could choose to sit at a table inside, eat a snack, and look out over the gorgeous view of your pool. Or maybe you’d like to sit inside and have a chat without having to deal with the glare of the sunlight blinding you. Window tinting can truly make your pool house have a real sense of calm.

.Not only is window tinting a functional investment for keeping you, your guests, and your family safe from UV rays, but it also protects your beloved furniture, carpet, flooring, and other decorations from fading. Window tinting may be the piece you need to transform your pool house into a cozy summer getaway.

How Window film protects furniture

Nice furniture and floors are expensive. Here’s how window film can help protect this investment.

The main source of damage that the sun causes is fading and darkening of wood. We’ll get into how window film helps protect your interiors but first, how does the sun affect your interiors? Hardwood floors and furniture can change shade over time with unprotected exposure to the sun. While some woods can still look good after this fading or darkening, this is only if the affect is uniform across the whole floor. Since most floors have parts covered with rugs and furniture, your unlikely to get universal coverage and you’ll be left with ugly, uneven patches on your floor. UV rays are the primary culprit when it comes to altering furniture. These rays are invisible to the naked eye but over time, it can cause furniture to fade, floors to darken, artwork to degrade, and generally wreak havoc on your interiors. The other kind of ray that can accelerate this kind of damage are infrared rays. Infrared rays are the main type of heating ray, heating up the interiors of your home and accelerating the damage caused by UV rays. One more thing to note, these are the same rays that can affect your skin as well. Just because your indoors does not mean you are safe from these potentially damaging rays.

Here’s how Window Film protects your home and you

High quality window film, like the ones sold by Formula One By AES, work by reflecting the suns UV and IR rays. High quality window film can block out up to 99.99% of UV rays, protecting your furniture and you in the process, and up to 85% of IR rays. In addition to protecting you and your furniture, window film will also lower your energy costs by reducing the amount of heat that enters your home from the suns rays.

Commercial Window Tinting For Chesapeake

An Energy Saving Window Tinting For An Energy Company

What is the first word you think about when you hear or see the company name Chesapeake? Hopefully, your answer was “energy”. Did you know that Chesapeake Energy has a goal to maintain the health and safety of their employees, owners, the environment and the public? With that being said it makes sense that this energy company would want to focus on providing safety and energy savings any way possible, including via the utilization of commercial window tinting.

Now you may be thinking “how does this provide safety and energy savings?” Let us explain a little bit more about the decision that Chesapeake made to have FormulaOne By AES apply window tinting to one of their buildings.

The fact is that LLumar window tinting film can help generate energy savings as high as 15% for commercial property owners. It also helps to eliminate hot and cold spots in the office and provides a protective barrier from outside viewers for the privacy of the office tenants. Additionally, the dark tint prevents sun damage to the interior furniture, flooring, and sensitive electronics. These are all good reasons why Chesapeake has chosen to utilize window tinting film.

Aside from protection, window tinting such as the LLumar film used for Chesapeake’s building also helps to give the exterior of the building an updated appearance without changing the overall structure of the building and without having to replace the existing glass.

The truth is that LLumar window tinting film has been enhancing many well-known buildings around the world for decades!

Sprucing Up A Church With Window Tinting

Out With The Old And In With The New Window Tinting

As with many other things in life it is an understatement to say that not all window tinting brands are created equally. The truth is that department store brands and lower quality window tinting films aren’t going to last nearly as long as a high quality manufactured products. Luckily, FormulaOne by AES is all about educating and providing our customers with the highest quality products available.

St. Monica Catholic Church in Edmond, OK learned the reality that after some time lower quality brands of window tinting materials lose their ability to hold up under the harsh ultraviolet rays and elements such as rain, snow, and heat. This was evidenced by their old window film which had started to crack and peel, as seen in the above before picture.

Just like Superman coming in to save the day, FormulaOne swooped in to help out! Our team assembled at the church and worked tirelessly to carefully scrape off every last remaining piece of the old window tinting film. This process involved cutting off sections of the tint with a razor blade and making sure to get through the layers without damaging the glass underneath. Then, we proceeded to apply a lovely, new LLumar window film. This particular job consisted of applying a white frost window tinting.

As you can see from the photos, sunlight can still enter through the windows, but now the church’s interior is protected from glares, heat, and ultraviolet rays. The outside appearance of the windows has inevitably improved, as well. We’re thrilled to have been able to be provide something aesthetically pleasing and protective simultaneously.

Do you have a window tinting project of your own in mind? We’d love to be able to help you out. FormulaOne By AES can be reached at 405-513-6400 or by clicking here.
