How Solar Screens Can Reduce Temperatures 10-15 degrees
You’re probably wondering how solar screens work?
Solar screens reflect or absorb most of the sun’s heat and glare, keeping it from reaching your windows. If the heat never reaches the windows, it can’t conduct into your house through the glass panes.
As a result, your rooms stay cooler naturally, requiring less energy to maintain a comfortable temperature.
Depending upon the grade of solar screen installed, a solar screen can block up to 90 percent of the sun’s heat instead of letting it through to the window glass. The image below represents the type of blockage that a solar screen will provide.
Solar window screens reduce temperatures 10 to 15 degrees, but they still offer great visibility so you can enjoy the view through your windows.
How Solar Screens Can Pay for Themselves
Solar Screens can reduce your electricity costs for air conditioning by 25-30%. Some of our customers can save up to 40%. The key is to install them on the east, south, and west sides of your house.
So how do the solar screens pay for themselves? According to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, the average summer utility bill is $400 in the state of Texas. If you reduce your monthly utility bill by 25% in June, July, and August, that equals a minimum savings of $300 every summer (June, July, and August).
The investment in solar screens will help you save money on your energy costs after one or two Texan summers.
Yet another benefit of solar screens is that they reduce the UV rays that enter your home. This reduction will help protect your furniture, art, and carpets.
You might think it’s too late since we’re in the middle of August. However, right now is actually the best time to install solar screens. The ‘busy season’ for solar screens is from April through June. During the ‘busy season’, it takes up to two weeks to install your solar screens.
