How Solar Shades Can Benefit You.

How Solar Shades Can Benefit You.

Solar shades are usually made of a polyester weave, and sometimes come with a PVC coating for enhanced durability. They can easily be raised to allow sunlight to enter during the winter months either by manual hand crank or by a remote controlled motor. How Do They Work? Most of the sunlight that hits unprotected glass passes through into your home/office and only a small percentage is reflected. Adding solar screens can greatly reduce the amount of light that passes through the window. The heat that would normally accumulate in your home is now absorbed by the screen and carried away by convective air currents. So these screens save you money and still allow you to see the great outdoors while remaining cool and comfortable. What Other Ways DO Solar Shades Help Me? It is no longer necessary to close the curtains or shut your blinds. Solar screens help reduce your cooling costs and they also can prevent the fading of curtains, carpets and furniture. So you get the benefits of a great view with out worrying about the suns damaging rays. How Do I Get Them? Contact New Haven Awning today for a free consultation. We can help you decide on the best methods to shade your location and still get the most out of your beautiful...
