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 had effective summer window insulation with the Shade Grade window inserts she had installed inside her home’s 19 windows.
“I used to have to close the blinds and pull the curtains to keep the afternoon sun from baking the bedroom. Now the Indow window inserts do that job while letting in light.”
Shade Grade inserts are very effective blocking window heat, making her 1930 Mediterranean bungalow more comfortable during the summer. Beverly is running her evaporative cooler less and enjoying lower energy bills.
Beverly, who is legally blind, also appreciates that Shade Grade lessons the harsh white glare she sees when she looks out her windows. Before, she had to put on sunglasses to look outside. Now her windows have them thanks to Indow dealer, Current C Energy Systems in Albuquerque.
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 block away.
Beverly originally sought out Indow window inserts for energy efficiency and window insulation during the hot summers. Her single-pane, French style 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.
“They’re fabulous,” she said. “It’s just the greatest idea.”
