Reducing A/C Costs With Solar Shades

Reducing A/C Costs With Solar ShadesRunning your air conditioning all summer long can make your cooling bills skyrocket. Having solar shades installed can help lower these bills, since your air conditioning system doesn’t have to run as often. These are some of the benefits of installing these shades for your Middletown home.

Lower Indoor Temperatures

Solar shades help keep the sun’s rays from heating up your home during the summer months. This leads to lower temperatures in your home, which means your air conditioning system won’t necessarily be on as much. In addition to reducing your energy bills when it’s hot out, this also helps prevent excess wear and tear on your system. Since your system doesn’t run as much, it’s less likely to need repairs and more likely to have a longer life span.

Improved Indoor Comfort

Solar shades block sunlight from creating glares inside your home, which helps improve your indoor comfort, especially for your eyes. Whether you’re working on a computer or watching TV, sunlight can reflect off the screen and irritate your eyes. With a solar shade installed, you won’t have to deal with glare.

UV Protection

Solar shade installation also provides your home with protection from the sun’s UV rays. These rays can end up causing furniture and upholstered items to fade over time. A solar shade’s ability to filter out these rays means these items will keep their original color longer and won’t need to be replaced as quickly. UV rays can also affect your health by potentially increasing your risk of skin cancer. Solar shades help minimize your exposure to the sun’s UV rays.

Keep in mind that solar shade designs are available in a wide range that can suit any home. You can choose from different sizes and shapes that give your home added visual appeal while also helping you save money on air conditioning costs.
