There are days that you just want to open the windows of your house and just let the breeze flow in. It's especially appropriate if you live near the beach where just the smell of the sea can make you feel relaxed and calm. The problem is, when you open the windows it seems like it's an open invitation to insects, dirt, debris and other small animals to come into your home. And once they come in, it can be difficult to get them out. You'll waste a lot of time cleaning up after them.
One way to enjoy the benefits of open windows and yet keep the pesky intruders out is to install window screens in all of your window frames. These screens are very aptly named because they are simply mesh screens made out of metal, fiberglass or synthetic fiber mesh whose sole purpose is to prevent unwanted nuisances like insects, pests, leaves, small animals and debris from coming into your homes, all the while not disrupting the airflow into and out of the house. Also, modern window screens ensure high visibility from the windows which means that despite your windows having these screens, metal window screen syour view is hardly obstructed and there is no distortion resulting from looking through screens. The principle is, the finer the mesh in the screens, the higher the visibility. Some window screens actually feel like there are no screens at all. Fine mesh screens also allow light to pass through so unlike older screens, your house won't remain dark even with the newer screens installed.
There are also some screens that combine the protection of regular window screens with UV protection in the screens, sometimes called solar screens. These window screens literally filter out 70%-90% of the sun's rays before they enter your windows. That means, you don't need to worry about sunburned or untimely skin aging which is obviously a good thing.
There are also some flexible screens that do not require you building casement or frames for the screens. They are simply attached to the window frames via Velcro fasteners which make for easy cleaning and installing. They are widely available on home improvement depots and some hardware stores. Although these are a bit pricey compare to traditional window screen, they're far more effective and convenient. You don't need a professional to install them so that can surely help you save money.
