Windows account for almost half of your home’s heat gain in the summer! While many of us would love to install brand new windows, it is not always cost effective. Sustainable Services recommends installing solar screens to your existing windows as a better performing alternative than spending the money on new windows.
Solar screens resemble standard window screens, except they keep direct sunlight from entering the window, cut glare, and block light without blocking the view or eliminating air flow. They also provide privacy by restricting the view of the interior from outside your house. Solar screens are custom built to suit your home and come in a variety of colors to compliment any house.
How Are Solar Screens Energy Efficient?
Solar screens can block 80-90% of the sun’s rays and heat while cutting utility costs up to 30%. They also provide added insulation for your windows and lower indoor temperatures. Combined with weatherization through Sustainable Services, solar screens can be much more cost effective and a better performing alternative than purchasing new windows. In fact, since solar screens save energy, they normally will pay for themselves within two to three cooling cycles.
