Window shading systems not only ensure privacy in the evening but also help to prevent overheating inside your house in the summer.
Shading systems are especially important in the summertime, when buildings, especially heavily insulated ones, may start to overheat due to solar gains through the glazing. Why? Highly insulating windows are usually installed with the intent to reduce heat loss throughout winter. Considering the fact that in the rooms exposed to direct sunlight the temperatures can increase because of glazing, one can quickly understand what the problem is. In rooms with already high temperatures, it can get even hotter because heat is coming through the glazing due to solar radiation. If you provide shading on the exterior side of the window, especially when the sun shines directly on it, you will prevent the heat from coming through the glazing, which will help to protect your house from overheating.
