Controlling sunlight is an important aspect of energy efficiency and comfort. One way that this can be accomplished is by selecting from the seemingly endless amount of window treatments that have been available for many years. Traditional window treatments include things like drapes, blinds, shutters, and shades. In the past few years however, we’ve seen a rise in popularity in solar blinds which allow you to control sunlight and keep your home comfortable even when it can’t be heated or cooled – which is why some people may find themselves wondering: what’s the difference between solar and conventional blinds? In this blog we’ll take a look at all the considerations when choosing between solar and traditional window coverings.

1. The Difference Between Solar and Conventional Blinds Is That The Former Are Made Of A Special Material That Is Designed To Block The Sun’s UV Rays.

Solar blinds are a great way to protect your home from the harmful effects of UV rays. They’re made of a special material that blocks the sun’s UV rays, so they can help reduce glare and heat in your house during the summer months. Solar blinds can also protect your furnishings and artwork from UV damage.

Solar blinds typically have a visual light blocking factor (VLBF), which measures how much visible light they let in. The higher the VLBF, the less light that passes through your window coverings and into your home. You’ll want to choose a VLBF level appropriate for your needs based on where you live, as well as what kind of view you want to see outside—if any!

2. Solar Blinds Block Glare And Heat, But They Still Allow You To See Outside.

Solar blinds block the sun’s rays and heat from entering your home. They are made of special tightly woven fabric, so you can still see outside but the room stays cool. They allow you to enjoy the view without having your eyes exposed to harmful UV rays.

3. Solar Blinds Help Keep Your House Cooler In The Summer.

One of the main benefits of solar blinds is that they keep your house cooler in the summer. Even if you have air conditioning, you’re still better off with solar blinds because they help to keep your home cooler for longer—which means you turn on your AC less often, which in turn saves energy and money.

5. Solar Blinds Help Lower Your Energy Bills By Keeping Heat Out Of Your Home.

The main difference between solar blinds and conventional window treatments is that solar blinds are designed to block heat, whereas most other types of window coverings only shade windows from the sun’s glare.

Solar blinds also offer a lot of benefits that can help you save money on your energy bills. For example, if you live in an area where summer temperatures are high, installing solar shades will keep your home cooler during the hot months. In addition to keeping homes cooler in summer months, solar blinds can also keep a room warmer when winter weather arrives—a feature particularly important for those who live in cold climates where it gets dark early in fall/winter mornings but stays light until late afternoon or evening hours during these seasons as well.
