If you live in the Salt River Valley or any part of the low desert, then sunscreens can provide several benefits for you and your home. Also known as solar screens, window sunscreens provide protection from the sun’s UV rays which can be dangerous for your home, your skin and your belongings, while patio screens provide relief from the sun. Sunscreens and patio screens have many important benefits. Let’s explore some of these in depth.
Sunscreens save energy
We all know how expensive it can be to keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Installing sunscreens on your windows will help to conserve energy, lowering your energy bill considerably. In fact, CC Sunscreens can keep your home up to 15 degrees cooler by reducing the amount of solar heat on your home by 80% to 90% before it even hits your window. By blocking the sun over your windows and effectively bouncing it off, they disperse the remaining heat, which reaches your window to be absorbed evenly. Sunscreens on average can reduce cooling costs by 30.
Sun and patio screens add value and style to your home
Sun and patio screens not only help reduce energy costs but add style and flare to your home. Easy to install you can upgrade the look of your home with minimal installation and increase the value of your home. With a variety of sleek, modern styles and colors to choose from, sun and patio screens set your home apart from the others on the block. Increase the usability of your outside space with tent-like patio screens that can keep you cool while still enjoying available natural light. Create privacy for you and your family and protect your windows from dust and dirt while still letting the beautiful desert light into your home.
Protection from unwanted UV radiation
While most of us understand the importance of wearing sunscreen to protect our skin from the rays of UV light, many don’t understand how these same rays can be just as degrading on the belongings in our home. UV rays can fade your flooring, carpeting and furniture. If you have recently invested in any of those things or you hope to keep them in the best shape possible for years to come, consider sunscreens for your windows. By protecting the inside of your home and it’s contents, sunscreens will save you a lot of money down the road.
Enjoy the comfort which sun and patio screens provide
When you have sunscreens over your window you don’t only minimize the amount of heat that is transferred through your window but you also cut out the glare from the sun.. Direct sunlight can cause quite the uncomfortable glare inside your home or when you are on your patio forcing you to squint. This can be particularly frustrating when trying to watch TV or working on your computer during the day. Sunscreens can provide a respite from the desert sun so you can control the light around you while still enjoying its benefits.
Extend the usable space in your home
For many of us, our home is our sanctuary. Whether you work from home or out, it’s always nice to enjoy the whimsy of our entire home and surrounding property. However when the sun is hot and beating down it is hard to access your outside space. It’s wonderful to spend time inside but investing in patio screens extends the amount of space that you and your family can use. Enjoy a family dinner or lazy Sunday barbeque staying cool outside with protection from the sun. Patio screens are an affordable way to upgrade your home, protecting you and your family from heat and UV rays while getting in touch with the beautiful desert climate we call home. If you enjoy time by the pool, with your kids in your backyard or dining in the late evening, sunscreens can enhance your outside experience.
This is a great time of year to invest in CC Sunscreens. They can save on your energy bill, keep your home looking stylish and modern, while keeping your cool and providing a place to enjoy the outdoors comfortably and safely. Contact us today to find out how we can upgrade your home today!
