Solar shades can protect the inside of your home or building from the sun’s UV rays. The rays are reflected away, and the shades also absorb heat from the outside. Solar shades are becoming increasingly popular among both homeowners and business owners, as they can help you save both money and energy.

First and foremost, solar shades can reduce the energy costs of your home or business by at least 15%. They reduce glare and increase privacy while still allowing some light to pass through. They can also increase the level of safety in your home or business, as they are made with UV-resistant, flame-retardant, and antimicrobial materials. Additionally, there are options available that are made with 100% recyclable, biodegradable materials to further reduce your carbon footprint. These materials can also carry a lifespan of 20 years, which means even more savings for you, and they can be used as part of a Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design, or LEED, project.

Best of all, solar shades are available in a variety of designs, colors, and styles to perfectly match the look and décor of your home. So if you’re in the market for energy-saving, light-reducing, insulating solar shades, call or stop by High Tech Screens & Shades today and let’s get started! We serve the entirety of the San Francisco Bay Area, including Marin, CA; Napa, CA; and Sonoma, CA

When it comes to shades and blinds, the options are nearly limitless. You can choose vertical blinds or horizontal ones, Roman shades or plantation shutters, thick curtains or whimsical sheers – or all of the above! But today, we’d like to introduce you to an option you may not have thought much about: motorized roller shades.

Motorized roller shades have the same classic appeal as traditional roller shades with an important upgrade: motorized operation! You’ll never have to fight with the chain or remember to put the shades up and down again. Plus, they can look great in every room.

Don’t believe us? Check out our top reasons to install roller shades in your home below!

 

They’re versatile.  

Unlike standard wooden or plastic blinds, roller shades don’t come in just one color or style. You can find roller shades in virtually every color and fabric out there. You can find options that totally black out light or options that allow light to filter in. You can double them up to fine-tune light control. Plus, since they’re very discreet, you can easily layer them with curtains, a valance, sheers, or other options to create a custom look for every window.

 

They’re easy to use.

Motorized roller shades can be operated with the push of a button or a few taps on your smartphone. That’s it! This makes them a particularly great option for hard-to-reach windows or for houses where one or more members have mobility limitations.

 

They’re programmable.

The best blinds or shades are the kind you don’t have to think about at all. Imagine being able to perfectly control the light in your home, just by setting and forgetting a few options on your smartphone. You can have your shades shift with the seasons, or stay constant all year round. Best of all, if the shades go up and down automatically, your home will always look like it’s occupied, giving you peace of mind and an extra dose of home security.
