• Signs Your Home Could Benefit from Solar Screen Installation

    While awnings are very important to keep your patio shaded, you should still consider other ways to protect your interior. Solar screens are installed on the outside of your windows, and they can block over 90% of the sun’s heat. To learn more about how you can benefit with a solar screen installation , continue reading below.

    Rising Energy Bills

    When summer comes around, it may seem normal to notice a rise in your cooling bill. However, you can keep your bill steady or even reduce it when you install a solar screen over all of your windows. A solar screen installation creates another layer of insulation that contributes to a steady interior temperature. This screen is just as important during the winter too; the added insulation keeps warm air inside. By blocking solar heat in the summer and preventing warm air from escaping in the winter, you should notice a reduction in your energy bills.

    Fading Furniture

    When the sun beats through your windows, the ultraviolet rays do more than increase the temperature inside. These rays can fade and damage the appearance of your furniture, flooring, and walls. Fabrics, plastics, wood, and so much more can all fade from sun exposure. With a solar screen, however, you can keep your interior furnishings better protected against the harsh rays of the sun.

    Glaring Sun

    In addition to the sun’s rays heating up your house and fading your furniture, the glare can become annoying and distracting. If you want a dark media room or a blacked-out bedroom, then a solar screen can help cut down on the sun’s glare. A solar screen installation will not black out a room—because they do not impede your view—but they will cut down on the sun’s light and help darken a room.

  • Choosing the Right Locations to Install Solar Screens

    It can be pleasant to have natural light in your home or office, but sometimes, too much sun can be more annoying than enjoyable. The sun’s rays can cause a glare on your television or computer screen, and can make your space much warmer. When you have a space that is getting too much natural sunlight, consider installing solar shades or sun shades to improve the situation. Solar screens reduce the heat and glare the sun brings, and will help prevent furniture, decorations, and artwork from fading in the sun. With solar screens, you don’t have to compromise your visibility, as you’ll still be able to see outside when they are pulled down. Solar screens are a good idea on windows that get the most sun exposure, particularly those that face east and south.
