What Are Solar Window Shades?

Solar ShadesSolar window shades are becoming increasingly popular among homeowners. These window treatments are manufactured using special fabric that reflects the sun’s UV rays, making them ideal for homes in warm areas. However, while solar shades block heat and glare, they are not entirely opaque; they allow for a view of the outside world. This way, you can enjoy the benefits of protective window coverings without having to live in the dark.

Benefits of Solar Shades

Some of the many benefits solar shades have to offer include:

Improved Energy Efficiency

Solar shades reduce solar heat gain, which will help your home maintain a comfortable temperature, even during the scorching summer months. As a result, you may not need to run your AC as often, which could lead to a decrease in your monthly energy costs.

Reduced Screen Glare

There’s nothing worse than trying to watch a movie while the sun’s glare eclipses half the screen. Solar shades make this frustrating occurrence a thing of the past, keeping your screens clear no matter the time of day.

Minimized UV Exposure

You likely know that UV rays can harm your skin, but did you also know that they can fade your furnishings? Solar shades will help protect your carpets, furniture, artwork, and other décor by reflecting UV light.

Blinds look awesome! The install was quick and lacked any drama. Just like I want. :-) We will definitely be buying from them again once we redo a couple areas in the house first.

The entire experience was excellent. We had roller shades installed throughout our home. The online notification system after your order is great. We received regular email updates regarding the status of the fabrication of our order, delivery, and installation.

They did a great job installing my shutters. Very polite and went the extra mile to do some minor adjustments that I requested. He identified a couple of things that were incorrect on my order and made sure new items were ordered. He came back to reinstall the corrected pieces and did a great job.

This is one top notch company! They provided a wonderful variety of samples when they came to my home and were able to patiently answer all my questions about their products. Very professional! I felt like they really cared about my satisfaction with my choices all the way to the final installation. The installer was on time, pleasant, very neat, and did a wonderful job. I absolutely love my new shutters and would highly recommend Southwest Blinds and Shutters to anyone in the Valley. You will not be disappointed!

The technician who measured our windows and eventually installed them did a professional job and was done very quickly. Got our rebate form promptly and would do business again if we are ever in need.

James was doing a job across the street and we asked him to come over for an estimate. We hired on the spot and were genuinely pleased with the quality and service we received. He worked fast and clean and on time. Very pleased with the outcome.
