We’ve almost made it through one more summer! One of the best feelings in the life of an Arizonian is the feel of a cool crisp morning in September or October – the first sign that the heat of the summer is starting to fade. Although the end of summer is nigh and beautiful 70-degree weather may be right around the corner, it’s no reason to wait on purchasing solar screens. We’ve compiled this friendly list of the 5 reasons not to wait until summer rolls around again to install solar screens.

  1. You’ll be ready: By spring, it’s easy for us to forget just how hot our summers really are – and how high we have to crank our air conditioners to find relief from them. If you install solar screens on your home in the fall or winter – you’ll be ready. While all your friends complain about their ever-increasing electric bills, you’ll be enjoying the estimated 25% savings you can expect from your solar screens. Arizona summer: zero – You: one.
  2. UV rays are alive and well any time of the year: UV rays only make up a small fraction of the sun’s total rays, but they are the most dangerous to humans. UVA and UVB rays actually damage the DNA in human skin and are thought to be the cause of most skin cancers. We all know the importance of staying sun safe in the summer, but it’s important to remember that UV rays reach Earth every single day of the year, and it is important to stay protected no matter what the weather. At CC Sunscreens, we proudly offer two choices in UV blocking technology – blocking either 80% or 90% of the sun’s harmful rays from entering your home.
  3. UV rays can cause cancer (even in winter): Did you know that it is estimated by the American Cancer Society that there will be about 1,400 Arizonians diagnosed with melanoma this year? Melanoma is the most dangerous and deadly form of skin cancer – and its rates are on the rise. There are also many other types of skin cancers that are less dire but still dangerous. According to data gathered by the University of Arizona, when calculating for all types of skin cancers, Arizona has higher cancer rates than any other state in the US.
  4. UV rays damage drapery and furniture (even in winter): The sun’s rays can be damaging to your furniture, drapery, flooring, and even art – even if your belongings are only exposed to light coming through the window. Over time, harmful UV rays will cause your interior decorations to become faded, worn, or even brittle. With the protection of sun screens, however, you needn’t worry a bit. Just like our solar screens will protect 80 or 90% of the suns harmful rays from reaching your family – they will do the same for your furniture. Your vintage armchair will thank us later – trust us.
  5. Curb appeal matters all year long: How are your window screens looking? Are they faded, torn, or loose and baggy? If so, it might be time for an upgrade. The screens you have on your windows can make or break the exterior curb appeal of your home. If you’re in need of new screens anyway – why not opt for ones that protect your family, belongings and wallet? Don’t worry – they’ll also keep out the creepy crawlies that attempt to invite themselves in.
