Effective Screens Have Many Benefits

screen_windowWindow screens play a vital role in every home. During the cold winter months, they are often replaced with storm windows to help protect your house from the cold. In the spring or summer, retractable window screens give you the ability to hide the screens when they’re not in use.

Window screens offer homeowners many benefits including improved air flow, pest and lighting control, energy efficiency, visual appeal, and security. Let’s take a look at each of these benefits.

  1. Improved Air Flow
  2. With a screen in place, air can circulate throughout your house providing some refreshing ventilation. This is important because circulating air helps heat and cleans the air inside the house, eliminating any odors or bacteria.

  3. Bug Control
  4. Window screens allow homeowners to open the windows in their house without allowing insects or other pests inside. The screens are constructed with mesh that is woven in a grid pattern, which stops bugs from entering a house.

  5. UV Rays
  6. Depending on the type of window screens installed you will have differing levels of light control. When selecting window screens, you need to think about how much light you want and need for each room in your house. For example, you may want less light in your living room so you can watch TV without a glare. However, you may want your screens to let more light into your kitchen. Certain window screens let in more light than others, so select the screens that best suit your needs.

  7. Energy Efficiency
  8. Solar screens can help to keep excessive solar heat from heating the home. If you can reduce the temperature within your house, you can reduce the use of your air conditioning and fans to keep the home cooler during the hotter months. This can reduce your energy bill.

  9. Curb Appeal
  10. Window screens can also be used as a home enhancing element. With a variety of screen options, you can enhance the visual appeal of your home.

  11. Added Security
  12. As an added form of protection for your home, you can install security window screens that are made of coated steel instead of the usual fiberglass or aluminum material. These screens are resistant to being cut or someone pushing against them to force entry.
