Solar Screens and Air Conditioning Costs

Did you instal Solar Screens in the hopes of lowering your cooling bill?

In fact, you may not be able to cut your electricity consumption.You may want to check out Window Sunscreens for more.

 

Consider it this way: What makes you want to put up a “air conditioning” system? You are completely correct if your answer is to improve comfort. Although it is a good idea to choose an energy efficient HVAC (Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning) system to keep operating expenses low, we do not instal A/C systems to save money.

Consider your windows next. Originally, there were three basic purposes for windows:

Ventilation

Day-lighting

View from the Outside

Most commercial buildings today lack movable windows, and a large majority of residential structures rarely open their windows, thus ventilation is, pardon the pun, out the window!

The use of dark tinted glass and thick shades has almost completely eliminated the day-lighting portion of a window’s function. Similarly, the usage of room darkening curtains and blinds to reduce the sun’s heat has rendered a window’s outward visibility useless. Interior shades and blinds don’t really stop heat flowing through the window because the heat is already there, adding to the conundrum. The heat is only slowed by these technologies. The cooling system in your building will eventually have to remove the heat.
