Solar Screens

Investing In Solar Screens Help Keep Your Home Cooler

Having windows makes being indoors a much better experience. They keep you from feeling trapped and allow you to experience the outdoors while still being in the comfort of your own home. Unfortunately, there is a great downside to this when you live in Texas. The sunlight beaming through your windows may look beautiful but it is also driving up indoor temperatures. This means that your air conditioning system is working harder to maintain a comfortable temperature and that you’re paying more in energy bills to make up for it.

Luckily, there is an effective way to have the best of both worlds. Solar screens establish barriers and reflect the sun’s rays before they come crashing into the house. Unlike films that just stick to a window’s interior, solar screens actually shade and protect glass. They keep windows from becoming radiant heat sources, filter out harmful UV rays, and keep your annual cooling costs under control. They can save you up to 15 percent!

Solar screens also add some privacy to your house from the outside, but they don’t interfere with your view of the outdoors. You will still be able to enjoy plenty of natural light without the added heat. And because they are so easy to customize, solar screens can be made for any window shape. You can even add solar screening to your porch! What better way to save money and enjoy your home year round here in Austin, Texas?
