Austin, TX (PRWEB) October 13, 2006
After a thorough research and development phase, which began in 2004, Plissé retractable screens are now available in the United States. Screen Solutions Inc is the first to offer this popular European design of retractble screens for both doors and windows to American homeowners.
With cooling costs at an all time high, everyone would welcome savings to their energy bill. Screen Solutions Inc recently calculated the potential energy savings of using retractable screens in the spring and fall to let in cool nighttime air, then closing the windows during the day to trap that air in. The calculation, based on an actual homeowners experience in Sun City, Texas, demonstrated a potential annual savings in excess of $270 -- more than the cost of a single Plissé retractable screen. This report, Screen Use and Air-conditioning, can be viewed in detail on the Screen Solutions Inc website at http://www.usscreens.com. In addition, because the Plissé is designed to function properly even if left closed all of the time, unlike traditional retractable screens, it is a much more effective device for energy savings.
The Plissé retractable screens are designed to fit any style of door or window, without the inherent problems of traditional retractable and old-fashioned hinged door screens. Retractable screens are the solution to keeping bugs out when doors and windows are open, while not obstructing the view outside when doors and windows are closed. The new Plissé won't unexpectedly pop open like traditional retractable screens, exposing the home to bugs, animals and the elements. In a test they showed significantly greater resistance to wind than traditional retractable screens; this test is also available on the Screen Solutions Inc website.
Plissé retractable screens offer an alternative to the high-priced, complicated versions of retractable screens currently being offered in the US market and they are simple enough for any DIYer to install with ease.
