A residential customer in New England was having trouble keeping his house cooler than 80 degrees, regardless of how much air conditioning he used. The solution? A Worldscreen motorized, remote-control, exterior-installed solar shade that blocked most of the western exposure. Not only was the homeowner able to lower and maintain his home's temperature to a comfortable 66 degrees, but he was also surprised by the reduced glare inside his home. His new shade prevented 95%* of the sun's heat from contacting the glass.
"I didn't even know that this was a problem until the sunlight was blocked during the most intense periods of the day," the homeowner said. "It eased the strain on both the air conditioner and my eyes while preserving the view I love."

* Depending on the openness factor of the material you choose, Worldscreen's shading fabrics will block from 85-99% of the sunlight and UV rays that come in contact with the glass on exterior applications.
