How much of a difference will EZ Snap make?
It’s a common question that we get. People want to know that a product will deliver if they are going to spend their hard earned money on it.
So, if you ever wondered what kind of temperature difference EZ Snap exterior shade screen can make then you’ll want to read this.
It’s already well known that the best way to cut down on heat is to use exterior shade.
The reason why it’s such an effective method at reducing solar heat gain is because it stops the heat from entering the house.
It’s why window blinds and drapes are not effective at keeping a house cool. They are on the wrong side of the glass.
Windows are typically the source for up to 48% of the heat build up inside a home, and blinds can only knock down a fraction of that.
That’s because when your shade is on the inside of the glass, then the heat has already gotten inside the house and you are fighting a losing battle.
The key is to stop the solar heat from ever getting inside the house in the first place, and that is what exterior shade provides.
EZ Snap exterior shades can stop up to 90% of solar heat, which means you will get a more comfortable space and a lower energy bill.
As for what kind of difference that means in temperature, here are some customer reviews of our shades that show what our shade kits can do.
Window Shade Temperature Difference
James wrote to us because he was ready to install another AC unit before finding EZ Snap.
“I have been searching for years for an inexpensive way to cool my upstairs.
I was almost ready to put in a second HVAC system when I stumbled upon EZ Snap. The windows face west and they get pummeled by the sun.
I just installed these and with my thermal imaging camera there is a 23 degree difference between the window with the solar shade and the one without.
I could not even believe it. I went back every hour to check and it was still the same readings!
The install was super easy and it actually looks decent. I was worried they would look like covers over the windows but they appear more like thick window screens.
Hopefully they hold up long term, but for the price you really can’t beat it! Thank you so much!”
We also get a lot of people who call to tell us about their hot skylights.
The difference that one skylight with a lot of sun exposure can make to a room is astounding.
We’ve heard from customers who tell us they’ve abandoned entire rooms because of how unbearable they can get from a hot skylight.
With EZ Snap skylight shades, you can get your house back.
Skylight Shade Temperature Difference
Here’s a customer review from Bob G. that shows the temperature difference EZ Snap made in their kitchen:
“Our kitchen has a number of southern facing windows plus skylights. When the outside temperature got more than 90 degrees – the kitchen would get into the high 80’s.
We ordered enough for two skylights and four windows with the EZ Snap system. Shipping was super fast and the packaging was well done.
The system was super simple to install. The install took about two hours, including going up and down on the roof.
After we installed, the temperature in the kitchen stayed in the 70’s even as it got to 90 degrees outside. Take a look at the picture – you can see the outside temp is 93 degrees, while it is a cool 76 degrees inside.”
With that kind of temperature swing, EZ Snap shades end paying for themselves through lower energy costs.
