Every year, Winter Park, Florida, experiences an average of 238 sunny days, with July being the hottest. The average temperature during Winter Park’s summer high is 92.0°F, and that’s quite hot. With all that light, it can get pretty expensive trying to cool down your home, especially if you have regular blind materials.

Regular blinds allow at least 20% of the sun’s UV rays and heat to enter your home, making it quite uncomfortable, especially during the hot summer. But with solar shades, you can let all the Winter Park, Florida sunshine into your house without worrying about your energy costs. So, here’s everything you need to know about solar shades.

What are Solar Shades?

When it comes to the latest advancement in window blind technology, solar shades are at the top of the list. These shades are made using a tightly woven fabric that helps block out most of the sun’s rays while still enabling you to see through your window. The tightly woven fabric also protects your home’s interior by absorbing or reflecting the sun’s rays.

This feature prevents your furniture from fading, saves you money, and protects your screens from glare. Like any other window blind, solar shades come in a wide variety of fabric styles and colors. However, these fabrics fall into only three categories:

Dark Fabrics

These are fabrics that provide excellent glare control through absorption of the UV rays. This absorption blocks out 94%-96% of the sun’s rays enabling it to still provide ideal light while still protecting your home from the sun’s glare. Its absorption capabilities help keep your home warm, especially during the winter.

High Performance

These are solar shade fabrics designed to outperform light, especially if you desire excellent glare control, heat control, an exterior view, and UV protection.

Light Fabrics

These types of solar shade fabrics are a perfect option for heat management, as they reflect the sun rays. They also allow more visible light into the room, unlike the other fabrics. They also block out 80-90% of sunlight, making them an excellent option for areas in your home or office where a brighter ambiance is desired.

Other aspects of solar shade you should know about include:

  • Solar Shades are See Through. The view you get from solar shades depends on the fabric’s openness percentage. The lower the openness percentage, the less you can see through the solar shade. It also means that they allow less light into the house as well.
  • Unlike other window blinds, cleaning solar shades is relatively easy. All you need is a brush attachment on your vacuum hose that helps to dust them lightly. For grime and dust, you can use mild dish soap and a soft cloth. However, never submerge the shades into the water as this can damage their mechanism.
