In warmer climates such as Arizona, it is common to see tan-colored sun screens on the windows of homes. These screens not only save a considerable amount of money on cooling costs but also reduce the sun’s heat streaming through the windows up to ninety percent. That is very energy efficient and sun screens are also very affordable.
Homes with traditional screens have higher energy costs and the sunlight can fade and even damage paintings, photographs, furniture, and home decor. As a safety
issue, windows without sunscreens can become very hot to the touch in direct sunlight, especially during the hotter months. Sun screens also provide a greater degree of privacy. One can see out, but it is more difficult to see in.
Some homeowners layer light blocking materials – curtains, blinds, shades, and window films. Why use two or more layers when a sun screen will do? Chandler glass A sun screen reduces heat seven times more than those materials! The savings on cooling costs could be up to thirty percent, and the cost of the screens could be easily paid for in savings on energy within a year. That’s a short time to recoup an investment that will raise the value of the home, add curb appeal, and preserve furnishings. Not to mention, for those who like to sleep in a little in the mornings, for children’s rooms, or for those that need rest, sun screens will make the room much more comfortable. Not all light is blocked, soft light and wind can still stream through, creating an enjoyable atmosphere in the home. To have sun screens installed in your home,
