Your home’s windows are its most susceptible areas to storm damage, and they also let in a lot of heat. Having Storm Catcher screens installed will not only protect your home but also keep it cooler. Storm Catcher hurricane screens are recognized as one of the most innovative and technologically advanced products in hurricane protection thanks to ongoing research and development paired with state-of-the-art technology.
Storm Catcher screens are made from a densely porous material combined with a tight weave to create a barrier that resists driving rain and flying debris. The material is still transparent and dramatically reduces a hurricane’s destructive winds by an amazing 95%. This means that 150 mph winds are reduced to just a gentle breeze.
Not only can Storm Catcher protect your home against hurricane-force winds, which saves you money, but they can also save you money in other ways. It’s been estimated that 50% of the solar heat enters a room through window glass and 40% of the heat escapes through glass as well. That means that if your home’s windows aren’t properly insulated you could be paying a lot of money to keep your home cool.
With the Florida sun beating down on your windows, you want something that will keep the heat out of your home. Solar shades pay for themselves after time by reducing the high energy costs you paid before you had them. Shade screens can also protect the interior of your home from sun damage and provide added privacy, while still allowing you to see out.
Solar shades such as Storm Catcher screens may even qualify you for a rebate from your energy company. They can also protect you from the sun’s UV rays. For more information on Storm Smart’s line of window protection products, give us a call today at 239-274-2700.
