One of the biggest benefits of custom solar screens is being able to block radiant energy from getting into your home in the first place. They can also protect your furniture from the harmful UV rays of the sun. The home cooling and energy savings potential of solar screens in warm climates are simply phenomenal. Room temperature reduction of up to 15 degrees and a savings of up to 25-30% of the cooling portion of electric energy costs can be achieved in warm climates. Traditional methods such as blinds and curtains allow that heat inside the glass and only block the light.
Although solar screens may look dark from the outside, the outward visibility can still be excellent. In some cases the outward visibility is even improved as the solar screens reduce the sun's glare and many people forget they are even on the windows.
Solar screens come in 80% or 90% heat blockage and come in a variety of colors. Contact us for more information.
