If your house has double paned windows do you want to add sunscreen even if you had blinds inside? someone is offering sunscreen for our windows but we already had blinds that are always closed.

Hi. Gorillafootprints925. I would still consider adding sunscreen only if I have excessive sun that is coming through my windows. If the double paned windows is doing a great job of keeping the sun out of my windows, then I won't need to add sunscreen then.

Are your blinds metal, cloth or vinyl? I live in Arizona. We have brand new double pane windows with curtains or vinyl blinds inside. For my east facing picture window we have also added an external shade. Without that shade the room gets VERY HOT even with the blinds shut. The reason is the thermal heat is inside the house and blinds can't keep the heat out. The heat would be even worse if your blinds are metal as they absorb and radiate the heat into your house. My advice; have your windows screened where the sun shines into your house. This may be on any side of your house depending on the direction it faces.

pt barnum said it best "there's a sucker born every minute" really? one double pane has nothing to do with sunscreen its extra insulation and protection (less breakages). and sunscreen on your windows? do you wear sunscreen to go to work? how about when you get the mail? oh and when your sleeping maybe the moon shines in? i can get you some moonscreen? people are all out for a quick buck-wake up.
