Solar Screens in Alexandria
Atlas Cooling Offers Custom Fit Solar Screen Solutions for Your Home
What is a solar screen? Properly sealed vents, efficient HVAC systems, and correctly insulated homes are all key to preserving energy-efficient climate controls for your home. But there's a simple and effective way to help reduce the amount of heat entering your home during the summer. Solar screens, also known as sun screens, can block excess heat from outside, reducing the workload on your air conditioner and driving down summer cooling costs.
Atlas Cooling, LLC is an Alexandria HVAC repair and installation business serving Central Louisiana. We specialize in the custom insulation of passive heat blocking screens. Solar screens shield your home from heat, while still providing a glorious view of the outdoors. There's no reason to block the view you've worked so hard for just to save on cooling costs!
These screens are beautiful as well. The right selection of colors can help improve the look of your home without damaging property values or violating any HOA requirements. Call Atlas Cooling today and we'll help you fit the best screens for your windows.
How Do They Work?
The sun's rays carry a great deal of heat into your home. Typical methods to block this consist of curtains (which block out both the light and your view) and polarized glass. Unfortunately, both of these methods still allow heat to enter the home. Curtains trap heat between them and the window, while windows absorb some of the heat, allowing it to radiate back into your home.
This is where solar screens are more effective. Solar screens rest outside the window, trapping and reflecting the majority of outside heat on the other side of the window. Less heat makes it to the window, which means your HVAC system will have an easier time maintaining the temperature in your home.
Even though solar screens block out a large amount of heat by reflecting light, they still allow light to pass into your home. The windows are shaded which dims the sun's rays, but still leaves you with a glorious view of the outdoors throughout the day.
Where Can Sun Screens Be Installed?
Solar screens are manufactured to fit any kind of window in your home. There is a screen-and a color-to match your home, whether the windows are:
- Fixed windows
- Bay windows
- Alcove windows
- Circular windows
There's no need to worry about weathering either, as solar screens are designed to resist weather and fading. The tiny screens work as an effective bug screen as well! These solar screens are truly a marriage of beauty and function.
