Question: Why mix varying degrees of shading on a home?
Answer: Not all windows need the same amount of shading, those on a Western or Southern exposure or high arched windows can benefit from denser solar screen mesh to cut the glare and heat.

This Circle C homeowner chose the 80% solar screening product from Phifer for the view windows because it offers outward visibility while still shading the window, providing daytime privacy, screening for insects, and saving on summer cooling costs.

The darker color of this solar screen allows for a better view outward as well. Solar screens in lighter colors in the same density are harder to see out of. With this choice the homeowner protects his view windows and his view.

Here the homeowner chooses the 90% bronze solar window screens from Phifer to shade the arched windows above the entry door.

The benefit to shading the high window with a denser solar screen is two-fold.

  1. Solar screens shade or filter light, they do not block the window entirely. With a blind or drapery the homeowner could achieve glare reduction from the interior of the home, but this typically negates the beauty of the window itself, instead displaying the drapery.
  2. Interior applications to the window like blinds or shades do not prevent the sun from heating the window and thus conveying that heat to the interior of the home. Solar screen represent the better choice for energy savings.
