What are the benefits of a privacy screen?
A privacy screen fulfills all the roles of an ordinary window screen—keeping bugs and airborne debris out of your home and allowing fresh air in—in addition to a number of other advantages. The most talked about advantage? Privacy screens may keep your home up to 15 degrees cooler, which as you can imagine will significantly reduce your energy bills year-round. These screens may also help protect your flooring and furniture from sun-related fading, and reduce glare on TV and computer screens. Also of particular importance—they provide lots of privacy, as people inside can see out, but people outside cannot see in. These screens are also more durable than traditional screens, making them great for homes with pets and kids.
What’s the difference in a privacy screen and a solar screen?
They are one and the same; the names are interchangeable. Usually people who buy them for sun/light reasons call them solar screens, while people who buy them for privacy reasons call them privacy screens.
Why should I install privacy screens?
In addition to the benefits listed above, which are numerous, sun screens may actually add value to your home when it comes time to sell.
