Summer is knocking at the door while most of the property owners are looking for a solution to minimize the electricity bills in a convenient way. Today’s architectural designs are trying to enable more natural light and air flow in the house with patio doors and windows.  Our todays effort is to inform the home owners, contractors, apartment owners about solar screens and its benefits.

Solar Screen is a special type of mesh or screen that resists the sun ray entering your home.  This special type of mesh/screens are being used in window panels and patio screen doors.

So lets dive into the world of Solar Screens..

Solar Screens are very effective to control electricity bills. It reduces almost 10% to 15% electricity bill annually and a significant percentage of 20% to 25% during the summer.  While we purchase various home appliances that consumes less electricity then why not installing sun screens.

2. Block UV rays:

During the Spring and the Summer UV rays are most strong.  We all take essential care to avoid from sun or UV rays in both the season as we all know that UV rays increases the risk of skin cancer. While going out we take several measure to avoid UV rays like sunscreen lotions, wearing full sleeve shirts etc. But what we never consider is the Sun gives the same ray at our home too. Using sun screen shades can help us to keep away from sun glares.

3. Keeps the furniture and curtains from fading:

Every year we spend enormous to remodel our home by purchasing new curtains and polishing furniture.  Sun rays play the key role for fading furniture and fabric deterioration.  Sun screens or Solar screens keep out the sun in the first place and keeps your furniture and fabric from fading for years.

4. Environment Friendly:

We all want to keep the environment clean and green but on the other hand use air conditioner all day long at home and office which emits CFC or Chlorofluorocarbons. Chlorofluorocarbons destroy the ozone layer of the earth and make our environment uninhabitable. Solar screens naturally decrease the heat inside the home and make the home cooler subsequently we can reduce the use of air conditioner and cooler.

5. Tough and long lasting:

Suntex  solar screens are made to last. Best Custom Screens uses  solar screens made in the United States by Phifer that gives the durability for 10 to 15 years or more.
