How comfortable is your office or retail building? Are your employees running fans at their desk? Are you encouraging customers to come indoors and browse so they can escape the summer heat? Of course, the easiest way to stay cool is to pump the air conditioning – but that can quickly become expensive. Running a business is expensive, and keeping your building or office cool in the summer can drive operations costs up even more.
A great way to keep expenses down while maintaining a comfortable indoor temperature is to supplement your air conditioning with another form of climate control: sun screens.
Sunscreens are dark screens that reduce the intensity of sunlight shining on your windows. The screens are made of polyester and may be permanent, or removable so you can let more light in during the cooler months. Most sunscreens are much darker in color than traditional window screens. They are most effective when mounted on the east- or west-facing windows, and less effective at blocking the more direct sunlight received by south-facing windows.
Because sunscreens help block the sun’s harmful UV rays while still letting light through, they are perfect for any business or office in which you’d like to maintain an open and airy atmosphere, while keeping customers and employees comfortable. They will also help prevent sun-fading, meaning your office furniture and wall art will look their best for years to come.
Although sunscreens can be more expensive than regular window screens, they are more cost-effective in the long run, because of the many benefits they provide.They also come in a variety of sizes, shapes and designs to suit your business or office space.
