Why solar screens instead of tinting?
Screens offer three times more blockage than tinting. This is because the solar screen stops the heat before it reaches the window. Also tinting can make the glass hot and could cause breaking.
Will the screens block my view of the outside?
No, because the strands in the screen are uniformly spaced and your view is not distorted at all. If it is brighter outside the window than in, your privacy will be protected as it is very difficult to see into your home.
Will the screens darken the room?
These screens still allow plenty of light to shine through. As a bonus the light that comes through is much softer on your eyes and reduces that harsh glare on your television set. Plants do well in the softer light as well.
How much money will I save with the screens on?
Some studies have shown up to 50% on the cooling portion of the electric bill. Usually screens pay for themselves within 2 years. It will be tough to find a home improvement that will pay for itself and not cost thousands of dollars.
