Solar screens or sun screens as some people call them, have been around for many years. Even with today’s high tech heat reflective glass, solar screens offer a huge improvement. They are a tightly woven fiberglass mesh that prevents either 80 or 90 percent of the sun’s heat from ever reaching your windows’ glass.
You can use them all around the house or just on the west and south side, where the heat exposure is greatest. Solar screens offer excellent privacy as well, allowing you to see out but making it almost impossible for anyone to see into your home. They can be mounted on wood or metal windows, even on doors. Many businesses use solar screens in order to make sure the air conditioner can keep the building comfortable once the summer heat hits.
Solar screens block insects as well, so your old window screen is no longer needed. Some homeowners will keep the old regular window insect screens in storage through the summer, while the heat is bad, and then remove the solar screens after the summer, and reinstall their standard insect screens for the fall and winter season.
Many screen frame colors are available and there are even numerous colors of solar screen mesh available. Charcoal is by far the most popular color of mesh. Some homeowners elect to use these heat blocking screens as a way to update the look of their home without investing a great deal of money. The cost of solar screens is less than you may think. An average size sun screen only runs about $79 plus delivery and installation, in our local service area.
