Are Solar Screens Worth It?

July 14, 2022

The quest for a perfect shade solution for your home can feel like searching for a lost treasure. Are solar screens worth it in the first place? The answer is YES! Finding an affordable and effective solar screen doesn’t have to be elusive. X marks the spot with SummerSpace® solar screens. Here are some of the many benefits of having solar screens on your home.

Solar Screens Save You Money

Can installing solar screens actually save you money? Why, absolutely, and in more ways than one! First, SummerSpace solar screens are able to block up to 99% of solar heat transmission. Impressive, right? This means the UV rays are deflected away from your home by the solar screens instead of entering it and making it feel warm. As a result, solar screens can lower your monthly air conditioning bill by up to 60%! In doing so, this also creates less wear and tear on your HVAC system, extending its lifespan. 

In addition, solar screens block the sun from damaging your home interior. UV rays are capable of causing fading and deterioration to your furniture, flooring, and decorations. With solar screens in place, you can prevent this damage and save yourself from having to replace these items sooner.

Solar Screens Make Your Home More Comfortable

At SummerSpace, we believe feeling comfortable and relaxed in your own home is paramount. But, intense sun rays can heat your home to uncomfortable temperatures and create an intolerable glare. Enter: solar screens. Almost immediately after installing solar screens, you will notice the difference in your home. Enjoy cooler interior temperatures and a glare-free home interior. 

Solar Screens are Fuss Free

SummerSpace solar screens are completely hassle free! Unlike curtains, blinds, or drapes, they do not need to be dusted, fluffed, or tied back. Installed to the exterior of your home, solar screens do not require any ongoing maintenance or care. In addition, using your solar screens is easy for anyone. With a simple button push, you can extend or retract your shade screen in a matter of seconds.
