This time of year we will see the thermometer rising daily about 100%,  Sun Screens will save you money on your utility bills and protect your carpets and home furnishings.  To really save energy here are a few tips that I found on SRP, low cost tips for saving energy.

  • Leave draperies closed during the day to help keep out the heat.
  • Leave the air vents open in your home. Closing air vents can create pressure imbalances resulting in increased air conditioning costs.
  • Clean debris and obstructions from around outdoor air conditioning components.
  • Make sure your fireplace damper is closed when operating your air conditioner so your cooling dollars don’t go up the chimney.
  • Don’t place lamps or TV sets near your air-conditioning thermostat. It senses heat from these appliances, which can cause the air conditioner to run longer than necessary.
  • Set your thermostat between 78 to 80 degrees when you are home and up to 85 degrees when you are away. For every degree you set your thermostat above 80 degrees, you   can save approximately 2 to 3% on cooling costs.
  • Set your air conditioning fan to “auto.” This reduces the negative impact of improper air balances and turns the fan motor off when the unit is not cooling. Using “auto” rather than “on” can save you $15 to $25 each month on your energy costs.

I just had my sun screens installed and I am VERY happy with the professionalism of the company as well the cost and time frame it took to have the sun screens completed. They kept their word (in fact they were installed a day earlier than planned) and were very helpful in helping me choose what was best for my home. I HIGHLY recommend spending a few extra dollars to add the decorative window panes to your screens as it REALLY dresses it up and adds a lot to the look of your home.
Thank you for a job well done . . .

I just had my new sunscreens installed and they look great. Francisco quoted me a great price and within a few days I had my new sunscreens. High quality product. VERY competitive pricing. Excellent installation and service. I would highly recommend Sunscreen Solutions. They did a fantastic job.

Francisco did a great job with our sunscreens. We had them installed within a week of ordering. Very professional service. Big time saver for me was that Francisco washed all windows with installation.
Thanks Francisco!
