Everyone loves sunlight. Opening your window on a Saturday morning and allowing the sun’s rays and a light breeze to flow through feels absolutely refreshing. While small doses of sunlight are great from time to time, the long-term effects of intense sun exposure can be harmful to the contents of your home. Here’s where solutions like exterior solar shades are beneficial in protecting your home
Solar shades are manufactured from a coated material, typically vinyl, which is finely woven to guarantee protection from light and heat. Solar shades are available in a range of wave densities, which refer to the openness of the vinyl. The higher the percentage, the more sunlight enters your home.
At Shutters and Shade, we supply Talius’ Habitat Screens which have a reputation for being stylish and functional. The screens are retractable and retract neatly into a 5-inch overhead panel box. Habitat Screens are available in three wave densities – 5%, 10%, and 45% – with 5% giving you the greatest amount of sun protection.
The screens are also favored for their convenient operation options. The controls can either be manual or motorized for easy operation. If you need to split your Habitat Screens, there is no hassle in operation as multiple sections can be controlled at once. Best of all, the screens can be easily cleaned with a garden hose.
Habitat Screens promise to create a cool environment without obstructing your view. All homeowners value daytime privacy, and the screens do just that while ensuring you have a clear view of your surroundings.
Habitat Screens are installed on the exterior of your window which blocks the sun’s heat before it hits your window. This means cooler summers, protection from UV damage, and a more comfortable home environment.
Habitat screens are more than solar shades and are the perfect solution for reducing the number of bugs entering your space. The screens have a unique edge retention system making it impossible for bugs to sneak into your home or outdoor space. There’s also no chance of the bugs slipping through the finely woven vinyl.
By blocking the amount of sunlight entering your home, Habitat Screens reduce solar heat gain. Your air conditioning costs will decrease as there is no longer a need to use it as much, and this positively impacts your carbon footprint. Carbon footprint refers to the number of greenhouse gases emitted by one individual, and high energy use increases your footprint. As homeowners are encouraged to invest in energy smart solutions. Habitat Screens are the way to go.
Habitat Screens are versatile because in addition to being installed on windows, they can be used to expand your outdoor living space. The screens can be used on your decks, patios, gazebos and even sunrooms to create a cool and comfortable environment.
