Conserve Energy

“The best place to shade a window is on the outside, before the sun strikes the window. Exterior shading devices have long been considered the most effective way to reduce solar heat gain into a home.” ~ The Efficient Windows Collaborative

When lowered, exterior retractable solar screens stop 80% to 90% of the sun's energy from entering your home1, reducing indoor temperatures by up to 25° and air conditioning loads by up to 50%2. In winter, solar screens help reduce heat loss through windows.

Interior retractable solar screens are ideal for protecting your possessions, adding privacy, and reducing sun glare. They block 50% to 80% of solar heat entering your home through windows3. They're less efficient than exterior screens, but typically also less expensive.

A research group studied the energy savings of exterior and interior shading systems and found that grey-white exterior screens lowered indoor temperatures by 22°, while grey-white indoor screens lowered temperatures by 7°.4
