Window solar screens can be a savior when the temperatures start to soar. They not only keep your homes comfortably cool but also protect you from the harmful UV rays of the sun. However, like everything else, they do wear out with time and have to be replaced so that they can continue to provide optimum protection and comfort.
All solar screens are not made equal, and different solar screens need to be replaced at different points in their lives. However, there are some signs that indicate that you need window solar screen replacement.
1. Discoloration or Fading
If your window solar screen becomes faded or discolored, you’ll know that it is time for window solar screen replacement. Although it may not appear torn or damaged, discoloration is an indication that your window solar screen may be on the verge of giving way and may not perform as well as it should.
2. Torn Fabric or Mesh
Torn fabric or the torn mesh of your solar screen is one of the most obvious signs that you need to get window solar screen replacement. Even the slightest damage to the mesh compromises the protection that it delivers. The mesh of the solar screen may tear if a poor quality material was used. Alternatively, if there are rats in your house that can chew through the mesh, or if you have children or pets that can damage the mesh, there’s a chance that the fabric might tear, which means that you need window solar screen replacement.
3. Bent Frames
The frames of your window solar screens may get bent. Although they can be repaired, if the damage is either beyond repair or the material is not strong enough to stay intact for a long time, you should probably opt for getting your window solar screens replaced. This will save you the hassle of repairing the window repeatedly.
4. Uncomfortable Indoor Temperatures
A window solar screen’s primary purpose is to stop the temperature of your house from getting uncomfortably hot. If you observe that your house feels hotter than usual, it is probably a hidden sign that you need window solar screen replacement. Many people mistakenly think that their cooling system isn’t working efficiently when the problem is as small as old window solar screens.
5. Higher Air Conditioning Bills
When the UV rays of the sun are kept from heating your house, the air conditioning system does not have to work too hard. When the indoor temperatures are already cool enough, the air conditioning pulls in less power than it usually does. All of this contributes to lower energy bills.
However, if there is a spike in your energy bills and you have made sure that it isn’t your cooling system, it is an indication that your window solar screens are not working well and need to be replaced as soon as possible.
Window solar screen replacement becomes necessary when your solar windows either get torn or discolored or when they start to fail to keep your house cool in summers.
