As the summer heat begins to set in, your homes’ cooling systems will be forced to work harder. During the summer months up to 40% of electricity is used to keep temperature regulated throughout the day. Solar screens can help combat rising electric bills by insulating the home against higher outside temperatures, while locking in the cooler air produced by the interior systems.
Benefits of Installing Solar Screens
Along with helping to regulate temperature and beat that summer heat, solar screens can provide a number of immediate benefits to any home. This list includes the following;
- Privacy- Solar screens block the view into the interior of a home, making them a easy and effective option for privacy on demand. Since the screens are retractable, this privacy can be easily obtained any time it’s needed, simply by rolling down the screens.
- Interior Furnishing Protection- Many people don’t realize the negative impact the sun’s rays can have on furniture and flooring. Over a prolonged period of time, these interior items can fade due to sun exposure. Using solar screens during the daytime hours can significantly reduce this exposure and prolong the furnishings’ lifespan.
- Glare Reduction- Using monitors and screens in morning and evening light can be difficult when exposed to the sun’s glare. Solar screens are a great option to eliminate this problem.
- And More!- Every home is unique and comes with its own needs. The team at Longhorn Screens, Shades & Shutters is experienced in designing and installing their products to ensure that the goals are met and temperature and lighting problems are solved.
