Our new place has a few large windows facing west - this makes for a baking-hot house in the afternoons.
Curtains have been put up, but they are hot to the touch, and the rooms do feel hot (dark curtains). I'm figuring, while they give me privacy, they're not reflecting enough light away.
I figure I have the following options:
- Window Tint (dark or reflective)
My questions are:
- Are these my best options or are there any others?
- Which one of these is the most cost effective option? How do I calculate that?
- Within these options, what additional things do I do (reflective tint, white blinds, etc) to get the most advantage?
