Crimsafe Security Screens Provide Energy Savings

Lakeland, Florida - Crimsafe storm and security screens do more than protect your family ...a lot more. Independent test results show that Crimsafe screens reduce solar heat gain by 52%.

Solar heat gain, also known as passive solar gain or solar gain, refers to an increase of temperature resulting from solar radiation. The natural warming effect of the sun can be increased or decreased when the sunlight passes through different materials. Most window glass increases solar gain, with the well-known "greenhouse effect". Especially in warm climates, a high solar heat gain coefficient can be very expensive.

Because Crimsafe screens reduce solar gain, your home or business will stay much cooler after installing Crimsafe screens. In fact, the energy savings benefits can be as much as 25% or more. In the warm summer months, windows covered with Crimsafe security screens are as much as 10 to 15 degrees cooler than the same windows without Crimsafe screens, keeping your home cooler and reducing the amount of time your air conditioner needs to run to cool your home or business.

"In these days of rising energy costs, Crimsafe recognizes the need for reducing consumption," according to Ron Vaden, Vice President of Crimsafe. "We are doing our part by creating security screens which will save up to 25% on cooling costs".

Crimsafe keeps homes cooler in the Summer with less power. So, when you think of Crimsafe, think energy savings!
