Winter is coming, and we experience great variations in temperature as cold fronts blow in and dissipate.
Solar screens insulate with convection
Convection is the flow of thermal energy through gas or liquids. Liquids and gases are not very good conductors of thermal energy.
Solar screens utilize the same principle as double paned windows
Liquids and gases are so bad at transferring heat or cold that they are considered thermal insulators. This is the same principle behind the use of double paned windows because air, a gas, resides between the two panes of glass and acts as an insulator.
Insulate the weak point: windows
Windows are our weakest point in the battle to keep the interior of the home heated in the winter and cooler in the summer.
This image taken using an infrared camera (from energy.gov) shows red and yellow where heat loss occurs during winter. By insulating our windows we shore up this weak point and save on heating and cooling costs.
Solar screens equal year round savings
Solar screens keep your home warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer. Solar screens work by insulating windows and are useful year round for reducing heating and cooling costs.
