Why Solar Screens? Why not Window Film?

February 26, 2013 at 1:27 PMVanessa


iSave Energy’s Top 10 Reasons to Consider When ChoosingSolar Screens vs. Window Film/Tint for the Home

Why Solar Screens ?

10. Sun’s energy is absorbed by the open weave design of the fabric and then dissipated through the holes in the mesh as air moves through it.
9. Exterior sun shading stops the heat before it enters the home, like having a shade tree in front of every window in your home.
8. Blocks up to 90% of the visible light heat, which is responsible for 44% of the heat, gain into a home.
7. Stops up to 90% of the UV Rays from entering your home, which can cause fading of valuable furnishings.
6. Provides daytime privacy! blinds can be left open and nobody can see into your home.
5.Blocks on average up to 90% of the heat entering the home, with a high angle in the southern sky the blockage is almost 100%!!
4. Can be taken off and removed in the winter to allow solar heat gain for passive heating of the home and cleaning of the window.
3. DOES NOT void the window warranty for the majority of window manufacturers.
2. Provides a third layer of insulation for double pane windows making them 15% more energy efficient in wintertime.
1.Doesn’t make you home darker, now you can leave your blinds open all day, the net effect is more Vitamin E in your home!

Why NOT Window Tint ?

10. The Shading Coefficient, or the percentage of solar heat gain that is transmitted to the interior of your home, is 5 to 8 times worse with window tint versus solar screens.
9. Overall cost of window tint is 20%-50% more than solar screens to install.
8. The metal in window film is a natural conductor of heat and although infrared and visible light are addressed, conductive heat can negate the reflective qualities of tint and actually cause more heat to enter the living space.
7. With the new lines of clear window films there is a high probability of future window cleaning causing permanent scratches on the tint because the cleaner can’t detect its’ presence!
6. Need care when cleaning to never use anything abrasive or you will cause permanent damage to the film.
5. Tint is permanently attached to the window and can never be removed without considerable time and expense.
4. May cause thermal shock fracture when installed on insulated glass units because of undetected manufacturing defects of the insulated glass unit itself. The heat and pressure caused by the tint may exasperate the defect.
3. If not installed correctly the customer can see visible lines and bubbles.
2. Voids the warranty on the majority of manufacturer’s window warranties.
1. Window tint doesn’t block as much visible light heat as solar screens.

A Winter Trip to the Beach Changed Their Lives

September 25, 2010 at 2:11 AMMonty Walker

Larry said they went to a restaurant on a cold day and he was amazed at how comfortable the screened outdoor proch was where they ate. “I went home and did some research and found Screenmobile,” he said.

Screenmobile provides an on-site mobile screen service and drop-off repair service.

After retiring as an engineer, Larry was interested in finding something different to do and the franchise Screenmobile seemed to be just what he was looking for.

Larry started working from his home in 2002 and his wife Libby was working as an accountant elsewhere. “My office was the front seat of my truck,” Larry said. His dog went with him and Larry traveled the Triangle area building and installing screens.

It didn’t take long for the business to expand and by the third year, Larry had a second mobile trailer and Libby had quit her job to run the office for Screenmobile.

By the fall of 2008, business had increased so much, it was necessary for the company to move to a bigger space.

“When we saw that this space (on Broad Street) was available, we knew it was perfect,” Larry said. The company took first place in sales for 2003-2008 in the Screenmobile franchise. “When things slowed down (with the economy) we had enough of a customer base that we could hold our own,” Larry said. Their customers include builders and contractors as well as home owners. Screenmobile provides screen porch panels, weatherization porch panels, custom solar screens, slidding, swinging and retractable doors, new window screens and pet screen products.

All of their work is custom made either on site or at their workshop. “We make it as convenient as we can for the customer,” Larry said.

People bring screens for repair to the shop, and if they can’t bring them, A Screenmobile unit will pick them up. They offer a two-year warranty on all products, including labor.

The Screenmobile showroom, located at 603 E. Broad Street, Fuquay-Varina, is open Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. You can call then at 919-552-0090.

Using Solar Screens to Block the Sun’s Rays

September 25, 2010 at 12:40 AMMonty Walker

In a effort to keep houses and businesses cool, the window shading movement is certainly expanding. Screenmobile offers custom shading products for homes and businesses from more than 100 franchise locations nationwide. As the name suggests, these are mobile franchises that come right to customers’ doors to discuss and install products for windows, doors and patios.

Seven-year Screenmobile customer Vikki Clayton has lived through 10 steamy desert summers in her Phoenix, Arizona, home. After three years of living in the west-facing concrete-block house—two features that turn any building into a sun sponge—she’d grown tired of quick fixes like ceiling fans, window-tinting films and costly A/C units. She turned to Screenmobile for their solar screens, which block 80% to 90% of the sun’s rays. The screens are installed on the outside of the window and, unlike tinting films, they are completely removable.

Today, with several solar screens in place, her electricity bills have dropped from about $378 per month to $200 per month. In addition, her A/C usage has dropped by about 40%. Citing additional savings related to the protection of her carpets, furniture and art work, Clayton says, “If you live in this region, it’s not really possible to live in a house and not have them.”

Looking forward, new technological advancements will allow us to harness the sun’s energy any way we see fit, right on the surface of our windows. Until then, bushes, trees and high-tech screens, retractable or otherwise, will have to suffice.

Screenmobile Employee Becomes Franchise Owner

September 25, 2010 at 12:38 AMMonty Walker

Mario Julian is a new owner of a Screenmobile franchise. He has been working for Loren Wullschleger, the previous Screenmobile owner, for approximately 10 years.

As a Screenmobile franchisee, Mario Travels from city to city installing sliding and retractable screen doors, fixing window screens and installing patio screens for customers at their homes.

As the two men became closer friends, Wullschleger taught Julian a lot about the business including how to do the job and run the business right, He also taught Mr. Julian that being an owner is quite different from being the owner, a lesson that Julian is happy to have learned because it really is true. It requires a completely different mindset.

Before Loren Wullschleger became ill, he also owned a separate Screenmobile franchise in Yucaipa that he was forced to sell. Now Julian is currently trying to purchase that franchise.

When asked about the secret to his success, he said that he is selling new products that Wullschleger didn’t sell and having a booth at local home shows. He is currently selling lots of sliding and retractable screen doors and he attributes most of that to the home shows that he has been attending as a vendor.

His former employer donated both time and product for Crestline’s yearly “Christmas in April” program and Julian says that he will continue to do so in the honor of Loren Wullschleger. Keeping the tradition alive and giving back to the community are things that Mr. Julian says he will continue as long as the business can support it.

You can meet Mario Julian at the High Desert Home Show – Home Improvement & Remodeling Expo at the San Bernardino County Fairgrounds in Victorville CA. The event will take place Saturday and Sunday July 17 & 18 2010.

To contact Mario Julian, you can call him at 909-338-1048 or visit his webpage at
