Eco-Friendly Solar Shades Keep RRGH Cool In Summer, Warm in Winter

Solar Shades are a modern solution for any home, and they have become increasingly popular over the years as people are wanting to “green” their home while also saving money. The Rocky River Green Home features the latest technology in solar shades, not only do they block heat while also blocking the suns glare, they are remote controlled (powered by solar energy!) for easy accessibility and functionality.

As a relatively inexpensive energy saving alternative, solar shades come with BIG benefits. They reduce heat gain in summers and cold gain in winters and they also reduce the homes overall carbon footprint. Glare on TV and computers is reduced and furniture and carpet is protected from the damaging UV rays of the sun. The fabrics used in solar shades are environmentally friendly and made of low chemical emitting material to improve indoor air quality.

One of the more unique features is the solar powered motor that controls the shades. Solar motors are a great way for a home or building to save money on electricity costs. Also, these motors have no impact on the environment because they utilize natural sunlight. The natural sunlight is stored in a battery and then used to power the solar shade open and closed.

Sourcing local was another important factor for the Fischbacks when it came to installing solar shades in their home. EcoGreen Solar Shades is a Cleveland based shade and drape company that has 103 years of experience. Their shades are made from PVC free material and they are Greenguard and LEED certified as well.

Solar shades come in many different eco-friendly fabrics to fit homes and buildings of all kinds. They are functional, sustainable and offer protection from UV rays while also maintaining the homes view of the outdoors. Sleek and modern design, environmentally friendly and fully functional…you can’t ask for more.
