In our showroom we display samples of the 4 main colors of 80% and 90% solar screen:
Brown - Black - Stucco - Grey
We also have a wide range of samples of frame colors mixing and matching with each screen color. Do not get into the 'black hole' syndrome, there are options. Many companies want to put the least expensive black on black, no crossbar screens up, and you end up with dungeon windows. We at Texan Solar Screens take time to go over the options of your individual home and what color options might be the best for you. Ultimately it is your job to decide, but it is our job to make sure you made the best choice.

Do Solar Screens Work?
A 1985 University of Texas study found exterior solar screens with a (Shading Coefficent) SC=0.14 (best in 1985, much better now) to be 3 times as effective as interior alternatives, including curtains and blinds, and 2 times more effective than film and awnings.
The same study showed solar screens to yield overall annual energy cost savings of 14%, summer peak load reduction of 22% and annual cooling energy savings of 32%.
A ten year old HL&P study of solar screens indicated approximate monthly savings of $1.50 per 3ft. x 5ft. window, or $0.10 per square foot of covered glass. HL&P / Reliant's website discussion of energy implications for windows states that "heat gain from the sun's rays through windows can increase demand on A/C systems by 30%, ...and thats important (here in Houston) where air conditioning can account for 60% of a homeowner's summer monthly electric bill."
Using the technical information from the above sources, and LAST year's energy costs, approximate monthly savings of $2.50 per 3 ft. x 5 ft. window, or $0.17 per square foot of covered glass were realized. This yields a full house solar screen job pays back in less than 2 years.
Now to the important math. with a 50% increase in energy costs, 60% of which will be attributed to A/C operations, means a 10% increase in the savings above. The monthly savings per window becomes $2.78 and the payback is reduced to approximately 1 1/2 years.
The US Department of Energy states that exterior shading devices are about 50% more effective than internal devices at blocking solar heat. It has been stated that shading your windows and doors from the outside can reduce inside temperatures by as much as 15-20 degrees. Shading from the inside, such as tinting, shades or blinds will allow the heat to get inside your house. This will not produce as good of effect as exterior shading.
What Are The Benefits of Solar Screens?
They appear dark from the outside, hence increasing the privacy of your home, yet they maintain the outward visibility. Open up your blinds and see whats going on outside, while still maintaing your privacy. During the day you can not see into your home, even with open blinds. The reduction of room temperature can be up to 15 - 20 degrees. You can have major savings on your energy costs, not to mention help to preserve your a/c units by not working as hard.
Ever have certain rooms that you just can't seem to cool? Texan Solar Screens are the answer to your problems.
