Residential window tinting

The American made window films we offer reduce ultra-violet rays by 99%.

This is true with all shades, as a film’s ability to reduce UV caused fading does not depend on the film’s shade. With UV rays being responsible for 25% of fading, the residential purchaser can realize a return on investment just by protecting their valuable artwork and furnishings from fading in addition to the tremendous energy savings realized. Our residential window films are guaranteed for a minimum of ten years and can usually be installed in just one day. We’ve been protecting Chico and Red Bluff homes from the sun’s harsh rays since 1993, let us solve your heat, glare and fading concerns today! Estimates are always free.

Window Film Terminology

TSER: Total Solar Energy Rejection
This value is always expressed as a percentage: the larger the number, the more heat rejected (up to 85%).

Shading Coefficient: a value that determines thermal performance of a glass unit with applied film compared with a clear 3mm clear glass unit.
This value is expressed as a ratio: hence, the lower the value (ratio) the more heat is rejected.

VLT: Visible Light Transmission
Always expressed as a percentage: higher the number, the greater the percentage of light allowed to pass.

Spectrally Selective Window Films offer high heat rejection without reducing natural lighting. Very good choice for single pane and clear dual pane windows. Up to 50% heat reject without noticeable reduction in light.

Independent third party testing of window film performance

NFRC: The National Fenestration Rating Council is a nonprofit organization supported and monitored by the United States Department of Energy. The NFRC’s certification program provides an independent, third-party verification of window film performance, consumers can compare products in an apples-to-apples fashion and make informed choices based on their individual energy performance needs.
