Energy Saving Shades: Heat Transfer Solved

We all know how summers in Northern California can be uncomfortably hot! Finding ways to protect the interiors of our homes from the sun & heat is often on our minds. Not only is our comfort impacted by the effects of the sun, but our energy bills are, too. Interested in learning how energy saving shades can benefit your home?

See it from the Outside…

Using infrared technology, you can actually “see” the energy loss occurring in this home. The red in this picture shows where energy is freely moving in and out of the structure. These are the same areas where sun and heat can enter and cool, inside air can escape. Well-insulated areas show up as greens, blues and purples.

A side-by-side comparison shows how using energy saving shades can create a more comfortable home. The red window has been left uncovered and is vulnerable to energy transfer. However, the green window has been covered with energy saving shades that will keep the inside cool and refreshing to beat that summer heat!
