Solar Optimization While everyone loves a patch of sunshine, the combination of big windows and the Lowcountry’s extreme temperatures can result in running your family’s HVAC system ragged year-round. Currently, Best Buy Blinds offers a line of Hunter Douglas solar heat control window covers that help save energy and money by not overworking a home’s HVAC system. These window covers are also designed to prevent heat from
escaping through your windows during the winter months. The Hunter Douglas solar heat control line provides not only a respite for your HVAC system, they also bring with them a break for your wallet and peace of mind.

eShield™ Efficiency The Lowcountry sun makes for great beach days, but it also often brings the heat into our homes. Those rays heat up attic spaces, and that warmth quickly radiates to levels below. HVAC units must work harder to keep the space cool, costing homeowners extra during the summer months. Ultimate Gutter Guard’s eShield™ foil insulation can provide a solution to these unconditioned spaces. The fire-resistant product blocks 97% of radiant heat transfer, which lowers cooling costs and elevates energy efficiency in a home. Additionally, the foil never needs to be replaced or maintenanced, and can easily be installed on top of existing insulation. eShield™ also keeps the warmth in during the winter months, providing year-round energy efficiency.
