Block the Heat with Solar Mesh
Window Screens!

A good way to keep your home cool in the Summer; shade it...from the outside!

Saving On Energy Costs With Solar-Shade
Window Screens

solar mesh window screens

Installed as a screen on the outside of the window, exterior shading can block 65 to 90 percent of the sun's heat and glare before it enters the glass. This results in a more comfortable interior temperature, allows for more efficient air conditioning, lowers cooling costs and conserves energy. Exterior shading can also help eliminate hot spots around windows, improve daytime privacy and reduce the fading of drapes and furnishings. Additionally, these products offer excellent outward visibility and exceptional insect protection.

According to the Department of Housing and Urban Development, "A good way to keep your house cool in summer is to shade it from the outside…any way that stops the sun before it gets through the glass is seven times as good keeping you cool as blinds or curtains on the inside." Solar Screening is just such an outside sun barrier. Its specially designed yarn is vinyl-coated for strength then closely woven to increase its shadeability.

This method of cooling is considered to be superior to glass tinting, which filters the light along with the UV rays. Solar screening works by reducing the volume of light without filtering. As the glass filters sunlight through the tint, it will maintain heat, which dissipates into the house, making sun control screens more effective than glass tinting for energy savings.
