How Retractable Screens Can Enhance Your Home’s Energy Efficiency



Orlando retractable screens

Opening doors and windows is a great way to bring the outside in, but your energy bills can suffer the consequences. Orlando retractable screens allow you to enjoy the fresh air and natural light while saving energy – the best of both worlds!

Do you wish you could sit outside without the hassle of bugs, UV rays, and your neighbors’ gaze? Orlando retractable screens are the solution. These screens are the perfect way to make your outdoor area enjoyable all year round, especially in Florida’s weather, where you can often sit outside.

Our motorized screens tackle these problems and also conserve power in your home. They fit right into your living areas, letting you enjoy the outdoors while using less energy. It’s a great way to be comfy and save on your electric bills simultaneously.

What Are Retractable Screens?

Phantom Screens of Central Florida provides homeowners and businesses with best-in-class options for making outdoor living spaces cool and comfortable

Our screens are there when you want them and disappear when you don’t. Specially designed casings hide the retractable screen when not in use. You can easily raise or lower your motorized screen with a simple button press – it’s easy and looks great.

What Are The Benefits Of Retractable Screens?

Orlando retractable screens expand your living area by bringing the outdoors in – and the indoors out. It’s like adding to your home without costly construction and vague timelines. Some other benefits of retractable screens include:

  • Bug prevention – Nothing is worse than flies and mosquitos buzzing around when trying to enjoy a lovely dinner on the patio. The mesh on your retractable screen is fine enough to keep those pesky pests out while letting the breeze in.
  • Privacy – The various density levels of our screens give you the privacy you want for your living space. The tighter the screen weave is, the harder it is to see through, but you still benefit from external views and outdoor breezes.
  • UV protection – Sitting outside feels great until the sunburn sets in. Our Orlando retractable screens keep the sun at bay with UV protection. Blocking UV rays protects your skin and your furniture. No fading from harsh sunlight!

Will Retractable Screens Lower Your Energy Bills?

Leaving your patio doors open to let the outside air in can be brutal on your electric bill. Did your dad ever ask you if he was paying to air condition the outside? That’s precisely what you’re doing if you’re leaving your door open without the protection of a retractable screen from Phantom Screens of Central Florida.

Not only will your retractable screen help your outdoor living area stay cool in the summer and warm in the winter, but you won’t be air conditioning or heating the neighborhood! Some customers even put an air conditioning or heating unit in their outdoor living space to boost their frosty or toasty comfort.
