Temperatures are starting to heat up here in Sacramento, and it’s only going to get hotter. After all, summer is just around the corner! You can beat the heat in your home this summer and lower your energy bills installing solar screens now.
How do solar screens work?
Regular window screens allow the sunshine — and UV rays — to pour freely into your home. Solar screens use dark colors to reflect the sunlight and thicker mesh to create shade within your home. The bolder vinyl-coated polyester fibers of a solar shade absorb a good portion of the sun’s heat and disperse that heat through its large grid. A traditional window screen allows approximately 80 percent of the sun’s heat and rays to enter your home, but solar shades block about 80 percent of the sun’s heat. With a solar shade, your window screen bears the brunt of the sun’s rays and heat, rather than your windows!
What are the benefits of installing solar screens?
If your home becomes uncomfortably hot under the sun’s glare, solar screens can make your home considerably more comfortable. In fact, solar screens can lower the temperature of a home by up to 15 degrees! That also means that your air conditioner won’t have to work overtime to cool your home, which can lower your electric bill. Solar screens can make your home more livable. They offer shade to bright rooms and reduce the glare on your television, computer and other electronic devices. With less UV light coming in through your windows, you will see less fading and wear on your furniture, flooring and home décor. On top of that, solar screens can increase the privacy within your home. The screens restrict the view in through your windows, while still maintaining your view to the outside. Additionally, solar screen are stronger and more durable than traditional window screens. There will be no problems standing up to pets, children and other stressors.
