Shade screens, aka Solar Sunscreens are one of the most cost-effective home improvements homeowners in Phoenix and nearby cities can do to their home to reduce cooling costs and improve home comfort. We experience some of the sunniest year-round weather in the country right here in Phoenix, AZ. Often, that’s a wonderful thing. But, of course, intense sun also brings with it intense heat. Solar heat gain through glass windows and doors is the largest contibutor of the total heat load in our homes here in Arizona. As the sunbeams pour down on the windows of your home, radiant heat energy passes through them and into the rooms, creating high temperatures that can overwork even the most powerful of air conditioning systems. If your home experiences large heat gain through its windows, you may have considered having the windows replaced with more reflective material.
But this isn’t your best option. Magic Touch Mechanical provides solar shade screen installation for windows that will help solve the problem of radiant heat without requiring you to buy new replacement windows. This is a very cost-effective way to cool down your home and give your air conditioner the break it needs during the long sunny days. You may even qualify for utility rebates up to $0.80 per square foot! Call us to learn more about this service and how we can help you protect your home from the sun’s heat.
The home performance experts at Magic Touch Mechanical offer solar shade screens in Phoenix, AZ and the surrounding areas. Contact us today to arrange for service.
How Solar Shade screens Will Benefit You
One of the basic ways that people stop the sun’s heat from entering their home is to close the blinds and curtains. This can make your home dark and uninviting—and heat will still get inside through convection and conduction as the glass heats up. A solar sunscreen also known as shade screens, provide a different kind of protection; they block up to 90% of the sun’s heat from going through the window in the first place. Since windows account for almost half of the heat inside the average home, this sunscreen is an extremely effective way to reduce heat influx. In fact, the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development found that using a form of solar screen on windows is up to seven times more effective at protecting a home from radiant heat from the sun than using curtains and blinds, with a drop in cooling costs of around 33%!
There are other benefits of using solar sunscreens other than helping to lower your cooling bills. The UV radiation from the sun will cause fading of your furnishings, such as carpets, chairs, sofas, wall decorations, and paint. The screens also help prevent glare that can interfere with watching computer and television monitors.
Keep in mind that these solar sunscreens will not make your home “too dark.” This is another one of their major advantages over blinds and curtains. The screens prevent heat from getting through, not light. You will still be able to see clearly out of your windows and continue to enjoy your home—only with much less heat getting inside!
