    Question Question about windows...

    Someone must know the answer...

    I currently have these two long windows in my room that make it feel like I'm a bug under a magnifying glass when it comes to heat. I have vertical blinds up, but is there something special I could use to make the heat less? I mean, curtains would make sense, but any special kind of material? Perhaps a special film that goes on the window itself, as in cars? I feel really silly asking this, but I don't want my cat to suffer from heatstroke either...

    Fiind someone who does window screen repairs and ask them if they have solor screen material avalible. This screen material will cut down on the sunlight by about 40% plus it makes it more difficult for people to see in while you can still see out.

    My parents had a similar problem. Nearly the entire back of their house is windows. They had the solar screening put in and it significantly cut down on the heat. It also helps prevent sun fade on the furniture.

    Re: Question about windows...

    Hmm that's not a dumb question, MC is the place for any question people here have knowledge about just almost anything. Besides, this is a helpful thread for me as well since my room at my mom's house has 2 windows that heat it up badly.

    You can have your house windows tinted like car windows. When I moved in to my current place, I noticed the people who lived here before me had the patio door tinted a bit.
