Installing Sun Screens Will Help with Energy Savings
When it comes to your monthly budget, energy costs can be one of your highest bills, especially in the hot summer months. Here is one helpful tip from that will help with energy savings and lower your power bill.
One way to save on energy costs is to install sun screens on your windows. With over half of the heat coming into your home through your windows, sunscreens can keep out up to 90% of it. They also work in other ways such as cutting down on the glare so you can enjoy your favorite television show or work at your computer, and allow you to have more privacy. You'll also be able to protect your carpet and furniture because these sun screens don't allow harmful UV rays in that fades material.
Another way that sun screens help is in cases of severe weather. While we may not experience hurricanes in Canada, if the wind is strong enough to break glass or you have a tree hit the window, the sun screens hold the panes together so that glass isn't flying into your house.
This is just one way to help save on some of your cooling costs and, we can help in other ways as well. Not only do we service existing central air conditioning units that may not be working as well as they should, but we can also provide summer tune-ups and even have a new air conditioning system installed.
