How Solar Shades in Colorado Springs Serve You and the Environment

We are seeing lots of interest in solar shades in Colorado Springs this time of year! Solar shades are an environmentally friendly window treatment that protects the inside of a home or building while still letting in light.

We’ve pulled together some information on solar shades to help you determine if they’re the right choice for your home or office.

What are They?

Solar shades are designed to be the best of all worlds. By combining different fabrics, they reduce glare and infrared heat and provide privacy while maintaining a view of the outdoors.  

Environmental Impact

Solar shades reflect the sun’s rays and absorb heat so you don’t have to spend extra money cooling your home or office. Less use of air conditioning means less harmful emissions polluting the air. Solar shades can be made out of recyclable, biodegradable materials that won’t cause excessive harm to the environment.

Indoor comfort

If you don’t like spending the summer sitting in a darkened room to keep the heat out, you’ll love solar shades. They protect you from the heat while still letting in natural light. They block the direct glare of the sun and reflect heat so you don’t have to hide from the sun.

Besides keeping the temperature even indoors, solar shades provide you with privacy. Don’t want your open window to be a television screen for nosey neighbors? Solar shades obscure their view while still allowing you to see outside and enjoy the evening breeze.

Money Saving

Solar shades in Colorado Springs naturally keep the temperature even during our hot summers. Less use of an air conditioner means saving money on energy. If you have a lot of sun exposure, this can add up over the course of a summer. Long term, solar shades also prevent fading of furniture and upholstery by blocking out ultraviolet rays.


You’ve got so many options when choosing solar shades for your home. Have tall windows? Choose a motorized option. Worried about cords around pets or small children? Check out our cordless variety. By mixing and matching options, you’ll be able to order a solar shade that suits your needs.

When picking a color, keep in mind the dark-colored solar shades allow less light through and excel at preventing glare. Light-colored solar shades allow more visible light through and are better at reflecting heat. For both glare control and heat reduction, choose from a variety of high-performance fabrics.
