Solar Screens vs. Window Tint: Which is better?

If you think using tinted windows or window films can protect your home from the sun’s heat and glare, think again! Tinted glass or window films do not stop the sun’s rays from reaching the glass, and once the rays come in contact with the glass, they immediately starts radiating heat inside the house. This makes tinted glass or window films totally ineffective against heat and light.

The only solution is to use solar window screens. These screens use a specially created screen mesh that deflects most of the sun’s high-temperature UV rays before they reach the windowpane. Some of the heat is also absorbed by the screen, while a large extent of it is dissipated in the surrounding atmosphere outside the window. Solar screen windows, thus, drastically cut down on the amount of heat and rays entering the house or building.

Benefits of Using Solar Screen Windows

Blocks Heat: Almost 80-90% of the heat entering the house is blocked by solar screens. They can reduce the indoor temperature by almost 5 to 8 degrees Fahrenheit, thus making the rooms significantly cooler, and more comfortable to reside in.

Significant Energy Savings: Solar screens can significantly reduce the burden on air conditioners and other electrical appliances used to reduce the temperature inside the house. They can help achieve almost 35% savings on your electricity bills by keeping the temperature inside the rooms at comfortable levels in warmer climates.

Fading Protection: You must have noticed that furniture kept near the windows gradually fades. Usually, fading occurs only on that part of the furniture which is directly exposed to sunlight. By using solar screens, you can easily protect your lovely and expensive furniture from fading, and retain its original looks for many years.

Privacy: Solar windows are also useful for keeping your privacy intact from all those peeping toms in your locality. During day time, it is very difficult for a person standing outside your house to see what’s going on inside. At the same time, however, you can easily see the activities happening outside.

Blocks Glare: Solar screens also block glare effectively. If the glare appearing on your television screen or mirrors or any other part of the room has been a constant headache for you, installing a solar screen on the windows will solve this problem immediately.

Ventilation: This is an additional advantage of solar window screens. They ensure ventilation in the house while efficiently blocking dust particles and creepy insects from entering the house.

Winter Usage: For people using plastic to wrap their windows during the winter season, installing solar screens is a more effective alternative. Like in summers, these screens protect heat from entering the house, in winters, they do not let the heat get out of the house, thereby keeping the rooms warmer.

Besides these benefits, solar screen windows are light on the pocket and go a long way in enhancing the external appearance of the house or building in which they are installed. Considering these multiple advantages, solar screens can be easily considered one of the most important purchases that a person, family, or organization should make when moving to a new house or office.
