No. Most houseplants require filtered light. Shading reduces yellowing and water loss. In most cases, plants do better with shading than without but will require some amounts of direct sunlight.
At this time, Nevada Energy does not provide rebates for the installation of Solar Screens. However, the energy savings you will receive from solar screens will positively affect your out-of-pocket, monthly home energy costs from Day 1 so the investment in Solar Screens pays for itself over time.
Yes. All shapes and sizes of windows can be shaded with sun control products including rakes, octagons, circles, etc.
Visibility through Sun Screens depends on light location. Lighted interiors allow inward visibility at night, while sunlight during the daytime diminishes inward visibility.
Yes. Adding solar screens to any window can improve its thermal efficiency.
Yes, along with the heat that is absorbed by the drapes/blinds, they are also subject to UV damage. The combination of light-colored interior shades and dark exterior screens will provide optimum results.
Many studies and significant research have been conducted on the effects of solar screens versus the other forms of shading products. The studies have been conducted by Arizona State University, University of Florida, University of Arizona, U.S. Dept. of Energy, and the Florida Solar Energy Center/University of Central Florida. Solar Screens are without a doubt the #1 solution to block the sun from entering your windows and doors. Solar Screens block a large majority of the sun’s rays from hitting your glass and stopping heat gain. The more heat gain you reduce in your home or business, the less your A/C will have to run, the more your A/C is not working therefore saving the atmosphere from the fluorocarbons produced from the A/C. It is an essential step to saving energy and stopping the depreciation of your mechanical equipment.s
To protect carpets, drapes and furniture from damaging UV rays, the Sun Screens should remain in place even during cooler months. They also provide approximately 15% increase in the thermal performance of the window.
Many Solar Screen payback period estimates fall between two and three cooling seasons. a University of Texas study predicts a 32% savings for an average home.
