Beverly thought she had been experiencing a cooler-than-average New Mexico summer. Then she learned it had actually been hotter outside. The difference? She installed Shade Grade window inserts inside her home’s 19 windows, a window insulator that blocks heat gain from the Sun’s summer rays.
Shade Grade inserts are very effective at making her 1930 Spanish colonial bungalow more comfortable during. Beverly is running her evaporative cooler less and enjoying lower energy bills.
Thanks to the authorized Indow dealer, Current C Energy Systems, Beverly appreciates that Shade Grade cuts the harsh white glare she sees when she looks out her windows. Before, she had to put on sunglasses to look outside. Now the inserts behave like sunglasses for her windows.
The other difference in her quality of life? Her house is now remarkably quiet even though she lives in the vibrant Nob Hill neighborhood with the University of New Mexico a few blocks away.

Beverly originally sought out Indow window inserts for energy efficiency and window insulation during the hot summers. Her single-pane windows had avalanches of cold air tumbling off them in the winter and hot air filtering through in the summer. She couldn’t afford to replace them without damaging the historic character of her house and was thrilled that Indow inserts allowed her to preserve her original windows. But in the end they did so much more: blocking solar heat gain, lessening the glare, and creating a quiet living space.
