Does Window Film Stop Heat if Installed on Windows?

Energy Saving and Energy Efficient Window Film for Tampa Bay Florida Residents

Energy Saving Window Tinting and Window Film will help reduce the transfer of this heat through your glass home windows.
Window film will block large amounts of solar energy and at the same time the window film will absorb other parts of the solar energy.

  • Solar radiation transferring inside through the glass is much lower as a result of having the window film product installed.
  • The performance results achieved will vary depending on the type of window tinting film installed.
  • The transmission of heat from a section of greater temperature to one of lower temperature is termed as heat transfer. 
  • The transfer of heat always flows from hot to cold. No heat will transfer if there is no difference in temperature.

Many of us in Tampa Bay, FL have heat coming in through our windows for the majority of the year.
Three forms of heat transfer as it pertains to window film are Conduction, Radiation, and Convection. Radiation is, out of the three,  the most significant type of heat transfer since it transfers infrared waves. This determines why solar energy is referred to as solar radiation in reference to our window film specifications.

Florida Film Solutions has many products of different shade variations that can be installed on to your flat existing glass in your house no matter what size or shape. Some of the films available also qualify for TECO and Progress Energy Window Film Rebates. Visit or window film rebate pages by clicking on the TECO/Progress image on the top left.

“Combining Duke Energy and Progress Energy creates a utility with greater financial strength and enhanced ability to meet our challenges head-on,” Rogers continued.

“This combination of two outstanding companies is a natural fit,” said Bill Johnson, chairman, president and chief executive officer of Progress Energy. “It makes clear strategic sense and creates exceptional value for our shareholders. Together, we can leverage our best practices to achieve even higher levels of safety, operational excellence and customer satisfaction, and save money for customers by combining our fuel purchasing power and the dispatch of our generating plants.

How Does Window Film and Window Tinting Save Energy In Tampa Bay FL ?

The movement or transfer of heat from a region of higher temperature to one of cooler temperature is called heat transfer.
The transfer of heat always flows from hot to cold. No heat will transfer if there is no difference in temperature.

There are three types of heat transfer: Radiation, Conduction, and Convection. For window film, radiation is the most important
method of heat transfer because it moves infrared waves. This is why we refer to solar energy as solar radiation.

Solar energy through a window is transferred or transmitted by infrared waves. Radiant energy is converted to heat when it strikes people or objects. If you block the transfer of this energy you keep it from turning into heat because it never strikes an object. Window film interrupts the transfer of this energy by reflecting the energy back.
