Dell Webb Homeowners Love Sierra Window Tinting!

Dell Webb Homeowners Love Sierra Window Tinting!

Head to the back of Somersett and you’ll find yourself in beautiful Sierra Canyon by Dell Webb. With predominantly southwest exposures that face the magnificent Sierra Nevada Mountains, Sierra Canyon homeowners have some of the best views in Reno. But man they pay for it in heat and glare problems! During the fall the sun travels lower on the horizon making these southern exposures extremely uncomfortable. We rarely hear from Dell Webb home owners in the summer when the sun tracks over the tops of homes but come late September and the phone rings off the hook! Why have we been recommended by homeowner after homeowner in Sierra Canyon? In order to reduce the unwanted heat and glare and remain in compliance with the CC&R’s that restrict reflective coatings on windows, you need to use a very special window film with low reflectivity and high heat rejection. Sierra Window Tinting is the exclusive supplier of patented Hüper Optik Nano-Ceramic Window Films. These NFRC Certified films have been installed on over 30 homes in Dell Webb reducing up to 70% of the unwanted heat gain and over 99% of the harmful UV rays without changing the architectural appearance of the community, and most importantly, without ruining the pristine views of the mountains.   Our competition loves to sell the cheaper reflective films that cause your windows to look like mirrors and are loaded with unstable dyes that can turn purple. While everyone will claim that they sell nothing but the best films, we like to put our money where our mouth is and offer you a free estimate with an...

Reno Wells-Fargo Building

One of the larger buildings in downtown Reno is the large black Wells Fargo Building (Formerly FIB) next to the Cal Neva. It has a massive South exposure and the original glass only rejected 15% of the sun’s solar energy. That translated to massive cooling demands placed on the building’s mechanical equipment and ultimately, high energy bills. Sierra Window Tinting was called in over 12 years ago to do an energy audit an come up with a “return on investment” (ROI) for the building management group that was operating this property at the time. We always aim on the conservative side and in this case “conservatively” it was a two year ROI that we calculated. The client hired us and we go to work right away. The project went fairly slow due to scheduling and access issues with the building tenants. Sierra Window Tinting has developed a system of scheduling that allows most tenants to go about their day to day operations without interruption. Well, to our surprise the building owners were actually saving enough money in electrical costs each month to pay for and entire floor’s worth of window tinting. If memory serves me correctly, that building is 17 stories tall, so instead of a 24 month ROI, they actually realized a 17 month ROI! A odd thing happened on the very last day that we were finishing this project. We actually installed this building from the top floor down and we were working on the last office in the mezzanine level when the bank in the lower lobby was held up. The bank robber placed a bag...

Reno-Tahoe Airporty Authority Chooses Hüper Optik Ceramic

Representation is everything! To maintain the professional look their skywalk, the Reno-Tahoe Airport Authority consulted with Sierra Window Tinting to find the best solution to the heat gain problem. While reflective mirrored films are efficient, they can also detract from the architectural appearance of a building and this was unacceptable. The solution was our patented non-reflective Nano-Ceramic 30 Hüper Optik Window Film. With 63% total solar energy rejection and 99.9% UV rejection, efficiency was increased 300%. Hüper Optik Ceramic 30 contains no metals, no dyes, and it is 25 times more durable than conventional window film. Compared to other window films, Hüper Optik’s technology incorporates a layer of nano-particle deposition. This far smaller particle size is what gives Hüper Optik it super crisp optical properties. Being dye-free there is no cold blue/purple hue that is a hallmark feature of colored films. Head down to the airport and take a look for yourself! picture: Non-reflective Nano-Ceramic 30 reduces 63% of the sun’s energy and 99.9% of the dangerous UV...

Montreaux Prestige Homes

We love working in Montreux, what a beautiful place to live! Sierra Window Tinting just finished applying Huper Optik Sech to a residence that had concerns over sun damage. With 99.9% UV rejection, 54% solar energy rejection, and almost invisible appearance, Huper Optik Sech films are the perfect film to reduce sun damage and not compromise those pristine views of the Sierras.   The homeowner in this particular case was trying to decide between a lower priced competing film from SunTek and our spectrally select smart films. It can be tough these days to pass up a lower price but when the experts at Sierra showed the homeowner how much more reflective the SunTek film was in comparison our nearly invisible Huper Optik smart films, it was an easy decision. No one wants to detract from the look of their property nor do they want to lose their view to a reflect old technology product.   Sierra Window Tinting is dedicated to helping you find the right fit product for your needs. We’ll never try to sell you something that is ultimately going to ruin the architectural design of your community. Call us to view a sample of our smart window films on your windows and see how we can take a typical clear glass window that only rejects 15-25% of the heat and turn it into a “super window” that can be up too 300% more efficient for a fraction of the cost of window...
