How Does Vista Window Film Work?
Solar radiation from the sun is divided into 3 components; visible light we can see, and infrared and ultraviolet rays which we can only feel. As solar radiation strikes a piece of glass, window film blocks harmful UV rays and regulates the levels of heat and light passing through the glass. The amount of heat and light rejected is all dependant on the type of window film selected.
Energy-Saving window film enhances the solar and thermal performance of a building's windows. It does this by reducing excessive solar heat gain reducing cooling loads and peak demand. In addition, low emissivity (or low-e) films improve the insulating properties of windows offering increased cooling season savings and the added advantage of heating season savings.
Vista Blocks Up To 99.9% Ultraviolet Rays
Did you know that window film can help provide sun protection for your skin and interior furnishings? Most people do not realize that harmful UV rays can pass through glass. The deep-penetrating Ultraviolet A (UVA) rays in particular can reach you behind a glass window or door in your home or office.
UVA rays account for 90% of the sun's most damaging rays. UVA rays streaming through glass not only can damage your skin and may contribute to wrinkles, photo damage, or worse, cancers of the skin, they also adversely affect fabrics and furnishings.
Skin Cancer Seal Of Recommendation For Protective Window Film
Vista window film for sun protection has been recommended by physicians nationwide as a skin safe preventative measure for patients with solar sensitivity, skin related diseases and cancers of the skin. Vista window film with clear UVShield technology carries the Skin Cancer Foundation's Seal of Recommendation as a sun protection product that is safe and effective. In fact, many dermatologists, pediatricians, cosmetic surgeons and general practitioners nationwide have Vista window film successfully installed on the windows of their of

The credit then directly increases the tax refund you receive or decreases the amount you have to pay. Thanks to a recent policy revision, homeowners can now receive a 10% credit on the costs of window film, up to $500. Installation charges do not apply. For more information visit TAX CREDIT

I contacted the Window Film Specialists to install films on all the windows of my home. I have 5 sets of sliding doors that allowed the sun to heat up almost every room in the house. I had to keep the shades closed most of the day to keep the house cool. As soon as the Vista films were applied, the house began to cool off quickly. It was really an amazing difference. By the time the installer was finished I had to raise the AC temp because it was too cool in the house! The installer was very professional and did a fantastic job. I moved here from NJ where I had 3M window films installed. The Vista Films are a far superior product. The heat reduction of the Vista Films was almost immediate. I would highly recommend The Window Film Specialists and Vista Films to anyone. Thanks for a wonderful experience!

Your company recently placed window film in our condo at Beachplace. Gabe was the installer. I want to let you know how pleased we were with Gabe, he was a meticulous installer and we were very pleased with his work. The change in the temperature and comfort level in our condo is dramatic. Our only regret is that we didn't do this years ago. Thanks for a great job.

We are extremely happy with the Window Film Specialists, Inc. We called them out to put film on sliding doors and a large window. They were on time, very friendly, informative and their price was right. They also use some great technology to schedule installations and to make payments. When they came out to install the film they were again, on time, very friendly, and did the job quickly and it looks amazing. We are so glad we called them. They are a great company who uses a great product! We will be calling them again and highly recommend you give them a call too if you are looking for window film. You will not be sorry, we promise.
