Solar Shade Screens: The Best Summer Investment for Your Home

June 8, 2023

Most frequently, summer is associated with fun, family memories, loose schedules, and relaxation. It can be easy to forget that summer can also include scorching temperatures, high energy bills, and sunburned skin. While life is about balancing the good with the bad, at SummerSpace®, we believe in minimizing (or even eliminating!) those less-than-ideal moments when possible. And that is exactly why solar shade screens are the best summer investment for your home. Here are a few of the reasons why you should order yours today, just in time for summer.

Invest in Keeping Your Home Cool

In those toasty summer months, the last thing you want is the sun’s rays making your home’s interior warm. But this is exactly what happens in a process called solar heat gain. That is, the sun enters your home primarily through glass windows, causing the interior of your home to warm up. 

But, not with solar shade screens. SummerSpace shade screens are designed to block the sun’s rays and heat from entering your home. In fact, our solar shade screens can reduce interior heat gain by up to 65% for south-facing windows and doors and 77% for west-facing exposure.

This makes a huge difference in the temperature in your home while also preventing your HVAC system from having to work overtime to keep cool. SummerSpace shade screens have been shown to lower air conditioning costs by up to 60%. 

Invest in Protecting Your Home

Not only can the sun’s rays heat your home, UV rays can be harmful to your home’s interior as well. Over time, UV rays can be extremely damaging by causing fading, deterioration, and quality loss. Protect your floors, furniture, fabrics, decor, and more with solar shade screens. Our solar shade screens are made from high-quality mesh and shade fabrics designed to reflect the sun, blocking up to 95% of UV rays.

Invest in Your Privacy This Summer

Solar shade screens can provide an extra layer of privacy for your home by blocking the view from outside while still allowing natural light to enter your space. The premium mesh fabric used in SummerSpace solar shades is available in a variety of colors and opacities, ranging from sheer to opaque. This means that you can choose the level of privacy that you desire or need for your home.

Invest in Your Health

UV rays entering through your windows are not only damaging to your home’s interior. According to the Skin Cancer Foundation, UVA rays, the type primarily responsible for skin aging and a major player in skin cancer, are capable of entering through glass windows. If you are within several feet of a window, you can be exposed. Shade screens can help protect you by blocking those sneaky UV rays, so you can enjoy your time inside without the worry of being exposed.

To make the best summer investment in your home, contact a SummerSpace dealer in your area today. Choose from our FlexShade® Non-Zip Screens or Vivista Window Drop Shades, both excellent options for investing in your home.  With our eight-day turnaround time, your solar shade screens can be delivered and installed in time for use all summer long.
