Fill Your Home With Light

We have 300 sun filled days in the Cedar Park area and the heat and glare penetrates through our windows making us uncomfortable and hot. So uncomfortable that we end up installing shades and blinds, leaving windows closed off throughout the day to protect ourselves from the heat and glare of the sun’s energy.

Solar screening products mitigate the sun’s solar energy. You choose the amount of the sun’s heat and light you would like to allow into your windows and into your rooms. The solar screen sits away from your window catching the solar energy of the sun allowing it to dissipate outside your home. Therefore, the solar screen saves money on summer cooling costs. The solar screen operates the same as a normal screen, except the mesh weave reflects and absorbs the solar energy thus shading your window.

Solar Screens Let You Open Your View

Often the beautiful windows are what attracts us initially to the home. Then we close off the view due to the heat. Some critics claim that solar screens are difficult to see out of. First, there are different levels of mesh screening. You, the homeowner opt for the density of the solar screening mesh you would like on your windows. The darker solar screens are easier to see out of and provide more privacy, while the  lighter screens are harder to see out of but let more light to your home. This variety of density and color lets you choose the amount of light to allow in, the amount of heat to reflect or absorb, and the particular density for your viewing preference.

Video Demonstration of the Different Sun Control Screens

Solar screens do not conduct heat to your window

The Cedar Park area does get a lot of heat. These solar window screens do not rest against the windows themselves so they do not transfer the accumulated daytime heat of our Texas sun. One has only to think about putting your hand to something that has sat in the sun all day in Austin to understand what it means when those screens are blocking it from reaching your windows.

I just wanted to say thank you. I have been enjoying my solar screens for a week now. I had my doubts, but they are doing everything you said they would; the difference was immediate. It’s nice to watch TV with my blinds open. I’ll recommend Affordable Screens & Glass to all my friends and neighbors.
