Solar Shades in the Summer

Solar shades are a great addition to a home in every season, but they are an even more excellent addition during the summer months. Solar shades provide heat and glare control, UV protection, and an adjustable outside view. Here we explore some of the many benefits of solar shades.


Solar shades can be motorized, allowing you to change the mood and lighting in your house with a simple press of a button. Motorized solar shades are not only the perfect option for hard-to-reach windows or homeowners with limited mobility, but they are ideal for anyone looking for convenience and ease.

Light Management

Solar shades block UV rays and heat from your home, but they still allow natural light in. They can increase privacy and protection while still allowing natural light to enter.

Heat Control

Solar shades also block the infrared rays that we feel as heat. By installing solar shades in your home, you can decrease the heat gain through windows and reduce cooling costs. You can even raise the shades in the winter to take advantage of solar heat gain.

Adjustable Privacy

One of the most significant aspects of solar shades is the ability to have both privacy and a view outside. Solar shades come in a variety of opacities, which means you can choose based on the type of view you want to maintain. Installing solar shades allows you to enjoy the view of the outside without worrying about excessive heat or UV rays.
