When it comes to the hottest city in the United States, Phoenix, Arizona takes the cake. The hottest city is decided by how many days a year an area experiences temperatures of over 100 °F. With an average of 111 days per year over 100°F, Phoenix beats the runner-up, Las Vegas, by about a month of 100°F temperatures.
For those that live in the Phoenix area, these temperatures are common, but that doesn’t mean they’re bearable by any stretch of the imagination. That’s why the team at TRSS offers a wide selection of rolling shutters and solar screens in Phoenix, AZ that allows homeowners to enjoy their outdoor areas regardless of how hot it is outside. Not only does our selection of shutters and screens cool down the exterior of your home, but they can also result in generally lower temperatures indoors. In this post from the TRSS blog, we’ll discuss how our line of products can help cool down the hottest city in the United States, Phoenix, AZ.
Cooling Down Phoenix Area Patios & Porches with Solar Screens
Solar screens are an excellent way to reduce the heat in the outdoor areas of your home. Once our solar screens are deployed, they fully shade an area, making it 10-15 degrees cooler on your porch or patio. This reduction of heat is accomplished via several factors, including the blocking of UV rays and the reduction of radiant heat. UV rays are the damaging rays of the sun that can fade furniture and leave those spending time outdoors with a sunburn. On the other hand, radiant heat is the actual heat you feel coming from the sun. By blocking 95% of the radiant heat from the sun, our solar screens produce a noticeable reduction in temperature and improvement of overall comfort.
What’s more is that our solar screens are constructed using some of the highest quality materials around, including aircraft grade aluminum for our tracks and housing and motors and electronics backed by a lifetime warranty. That’s right — if anything happens that affects the ability of your solar screens to roll up or down automatically through our motors or electronics, we’ll come to your home and fix it free of charge. You can rely on our solar screens to cool down your Phoenix area porch or patio for years to come and feel confident that if anything affects their operation, it’ll be fixed promptly by our team.
Reduce Indoor Temperatures with Window Shades & Shutters
When heat and UV rays from the sun make contact with windows and glass doors, it can increase the interior temperature of a home considerably. You may notice this by going into a room of your home with several windows and opening the blinds or curtains. Within minutes, the temperature of the room can increase by 5 degrees or more. The same applies to things like sliding glass doors or large bay windows in kitchens that let in a lot of natural light to the main areas of a home.
There are a couple of issues with this interior heat increase, paramount of which being that it is uncomfortable for those inside the home. It can be frustrating when setting the thermostat to a comfortable temperature like 70°F, but in reality, the interior of your home is more like 75°F. Additionally, when heat from the outside is making the interior of your home hotter, it can result in higher energy bills. Since your air conditioner needs to work that much harder to reach the temperature set on your thermostat, it needs to run longer. This requires more energy from your home, and in turn, increases the price you pay for your electricity or energy bills.
Our window shades block heat from the interior of your home by being installed similarly to blinds or drapes. On the other hand, our rolling shutters and exterior solution screens are installed on the outside of your windows or doors, providing utmost protection, additional heat reduction, and extra insulation. When deployed, our shades and shutters both significantly reduce the temperatures inside your home, making it more comfortable and allowing you to save on your energy bills.
