A fine layer of dust on the furniture, floor and every exposed object is not the best way to ring in a new day. The problem with trying to keep the dust out is that shutting windows will cut natural streams of ventilation, evoking a feeling of suffocation. Besides, most of the essential sunlight is also blocked out, robbing you of the rejuvenating touch of sunlight.
Solar screens are a viable option for letting the sunlight in even as you keep dust particles out. Solar shades are preferred over tinted glass because they provide you with an unobstructed view of the outside world, even as they more effectively keep the heat out. Solar screens allow light to stream in, not the heat associated with it. Also, these solar screens are energy efficient and help keep your homes warm in winter and cool during summers.
The best aspect of solar screens is that they are now flooding the market in versatile avatars. Not only can you regulate the heat entering your home, but you can also keep dust particles out even as you allow natural streams of air to ventilate your living space. New styles of solar screens come with fine nets that, when windows are opened, allow air to enter, but filter out the dust particles.
Another move to reduce the access of dust particles into your home is to opt for window screens made of tightly woven polyester material. The traditional window screens that have been used for generations have gaps too wide to keep out dust even though they effectively block the entry of insects and autumn leaves. With advancements in technology, polyester is being tightly woven to make window screens with gaps that are a tenth of those in aluminum nets. These screens keep dust particles and air borne irritants out, but allow ample sunlight and air to flow in.
Window air filters are also available that serve multiple purposes. Microscreens are used that keep out pollutants of various types. Materials used to create these microscreens are typically repellant in nature, and are not easily clogged thereby reducing the time, money and efforts that would other be need to maintain these screens. These screens keep dust particles out effectively, and demand cleaning annually or biannually as situations prescribe.
The screens are layered, and mated strips prevent any infiltration. Two to three layers of screens and other obstructions are engineered to make the product efficient enough to ease matters for asthma patients and those acutely sensitive to air-borne allergies. Microscreen air filter are also employed to treat sick buildings, keeping dust and even fine fly ash out of the living space.
Factor in environmental influences such as daylight hours, winds and precipitation that your region is accustomed to, and the types of pollutants that infest the air you breathe. Accordingly, you can reach out for a window screen that will keep the dust, pollen and other pollutants out, while allow air and beneficial sunlight to stream in.
