Is your home positioned so that the sun beams through your windows hourly, causing you excessive heat and discomfort? If so, Solar Screens may be the solution to your problems.
Some big issues during the summer months in Texas are higher electric bills and overworked air conditioners. Many homeowners are looking for quick and simple solutions to these heating and cooling issues. Installing Solar Screens is of the many ways you can work to prevent these issues from occurring in your home.
How Solar Screens work
Solar Screens are dark screen panels that are placed on your window to deflect the sun glare that comes into your home. No sunlight is actually blocked, and it doesn’t make your room any darker than a normal screen. With the sun rising in the east and setting in the west, the sun has more of an opportunity to make its way into your home if you have windows on either of those sides of your house. Solar Screens seem almost invisible unless you are standing up close to the window, so visibility from the inside would not be a problem.
Increases energy efficiency
One of the main pros of Solar Screens is the way they increase energy efficiency. Solar Screens reduce the volume of light that enters your home without actually filtering that light. The tint on the Solar Screens maintains the heat that is coming from the sun and makes it disappear before entering your home. In turn, since you have none of the extra heat coming into your house, you don’t have to use the air conditioner as much to cool the space off, therefore reducing your energy usage.
Solar Screens are installed in many different ways according to your location and needs. Once you’ve accurately measured the windows that you’d like to put the Solar Screens on, the next step is to make sure that they are securely fastened to your window to ensure the screen is working. You can install a Solar Screen using casement clips, brick clips, leaf springs, 3M dual lock and suction clips. Depending on a few different factors like your location and where your windows are placed will determine what sort of installation tool would work best for you. While Solar Screen installation is simple, it is advised to consult a professional installation service before attempting to install them yourself.
Aside from the overall benefit of reducing your energy usage and keeping the glare out of your house, there are more benefits of Solar Screens! Solar Screens are designed with tough, long-lasting outdoor fabric that is flame and fade resistant. Solar Screens are also custom-built to perfectly fit the windows you want them on and ultimately add an enhanced appearance to your home. Reducing the glare means more visibility through your windows from the inside as well.
