Solar Screens

residential-replacement-windowsSolar screens are exterior full length screens that cover the entire glass of your windows and doors. Solar screens reflect a portion of the sun's rays, absorb heat in the screen, and then disperse the heat back into the air away from the glass. Although solar screens may look dark from outside, the outward visibility is still maintained. Think of it in terms of sunglasses for your windows, a solar screen blocks the glare and therefore the outward visibility can be even better than without. 

Solar screens' benefits range from ultraviolet protection to energy cost savings. Since solar shades absorb the ultraviolet rays of the sun, they reduce the glare that comes into the house and protect your eyes; while at the same time, allowing you to see clearly outside. The fewer UV rays that enter your home, the less damage your furniture will undergo from the rays as well. Solar screens can also protect carpeting from fading after persistent sun exposure. In addition to UV Protection, solar screens also block the heat of the sun from coming into your home. The savings are primarily seen in the summer months when you run the air conditioner, and those costs can be reduced by as much as 40 percent. Solar screens are a great addition to any home or office. Bluebonnet Glass can show you the many benefits of installing solar screens. Give us a call today!
