About Me Budget Shopper
Comments about Reflective Window Curtain Panel 30 x 63:
I had these years ago and was able to drop the temperature in my house at the time by 15 degrees or more. Wonderful for those long hot summers.I like the fact that you can still see through them while they are working their magic of cooling my house.
Bottom LineYes, I would recommend this to a friend

works great for what I needed
By dosey rosey
from Diller, NE
I use these so that it will keep out the blaring sun and most of the heat while I can still see outside. I do close the venetian blinds during the direct sunlight as it is blinding from the West.They work perfect for me.
really does work and can see thru them
from Diller, NE.
I use them to keep out the bright sun and the heat during the hot months. I am happiest with them because I can still see outside. they are not so dark that it makes the room seem like nighttime.
LIFE-SAVING HEAT-REDUCING SOLAR PANELS!!
from Playa del Rey, CA
About Me Casual Cleaner
These are life-savers for us in the summer! We have window blinds instead of curtains & rods, so we just use tape to stick these up to the window behind the blinds. They really cut the heat and sunlight but still let you have a view. The large size can be cut in two to cover 2 smaller windows. The only reason I don't give these panels 5 stars is because they start to deteriorate after a few months, dropping metallic flecks which animals and kids might try to eat, so it's important to replace them when that starts. Still, a quick, easy and inexpensive way to cut the heat!
WHAT A CHILLIN' DEAL...CAN'T GO WRONG !!
from TEXARKANA, AR
We were roasting , since 3 of our rooms get direct sunlight all day long..whew..it was HOT!!! Here in Arkanas summers are humid which makes the temps seem much worse..so I was looking for something to help keep the inside temp. kool and comfortable. When I was thumbing through your online catalog I came across your Energy-Saving Reflective Solar Curtain Panel that reflects the sun away from the inside of the house . They're very afforable, so I ordered 2 packages. They arrived shortly & my husband installed them with spring curtain rods , couldn't be easier. Oh My Gosh, within an hour the entire house was cooler !!! I couldn't believe the difference in such a short time span. I liked them so much, especially the fact you can see outside too, I had to order/send my folks a couple solar curtains, so they could keep cool in the Calif. sun. This is one chillin' deal that you can't go wrong if you want to keep the heat outside and keep chillin' inside.

By Nannie the smart shopper
About Me Midrange Shopper
Moved into a house that the AC is not carrying the heat wave load we have been having. The back side of the house gets the afternoon sun and can really heat my master bedroom and living room up. I am ordering more for my dining room today. I can really tell a differance in the temp in the house.
Good for the price.
from Southwestern Ohio
I used these panels at a sliding glass door where the sun beats in of a morning. They do a better job of insulating than anything I have tried there.
Great product! House is cooler!
from Austin, Tx
I am getting ready to buy more! Perfect for direct sun windows, darkens room just right, and drops the temperature inside amazingly well. Really a good product, makes a big difference...
from Milwaukee, WI
I have a porch with large windows exposed to South. These blinds help control heat during summer. Previously used another brand that didn't fit well. Had to be cut to fit. These are prefect size for my windows.

These solar panels REALLY work!
from Savannah, Ga.
About Me Meticulous Cleaner
Living in Savannah Ga., where the heat along with the humidity,can put us well into the 100's. It has been almost impossible to maintain a "comfortable" temp indoors and has been known for the elec. bill to become higher than our actual rent....not this year. These panels have went far and beyond anything I could have imagined, preventing sunlight from entering each room I have them hung, thus far.I will be hanging in ALL rooms, for sure.

from Cincinnati, Ohio
It is helpful in keeping the cold air out in the winter and the hot sun out in the summer.

Would never purchase again!
from Northern Midwest
This product is a huge disappointment. To me, it is falsely advertised because the pictures in the catalog and online show a smooth-flowing, easy-draping, wrinkle-free product. There is no way that comes remotely close to what this product is like. It is ugly, tacky-looking, and cannot be freed from the sharp fold lines across the entire surface of the curtain. Also, you don't know until you receive the product that it can't get wet, which makes its use more limited.Seeing through the curtain is very difficult -- they darken the inside of the room and the view to the outside is greatly impaired by these curtains.I would not recommend these to anyone.
Bottom LineNo, I would not recommend this to a friend
Nice inexpensive window insulation

does a good job hiding glare
from St Louis, Mo
it would be nice if information was given on how to get rid of those packaging folds and if it came on a optional roller, they could be more easily hidden when not used.
"Don't let the cheep price fool you"
By cool and comfortable
from Nashville, TN.
Our office has floor to ceiling windows facing east. By 8:00 am the heat overtakes the air conditioner and we sweat it out the rest of the day. I ordered 8 panels to cover half and to see if they really worked. It took me about 30 mins yesterday afternoon to tape up all 8 panels.This morning when I arrived at 8:20 am, the office was cool on my side. We are ordering 8 more panels for the other side. We still cannot believe the difference this thin, lightweight material has made. This stuff really works.

I plan to buy more curtains
from Abilene, Tx
The curtains are doing the job of keeping the heat out of several of the rooms in my home. Am pleased with the results.
I live in a mobile home that sits in the boiling sun so I use them to cover my 3 windows on the back or the house & they work great to block out the sun helps the a/c allot it doesnt have to work as hard to keep it cool & helps my power bill to stay low

Reduce the heat from the sun.
from Torrance, CA
Cools off an apartment that has no A/C
By Sports Fan
from phoenix, az
This is perfect in Arizona because it definitely keeps the heat out but still lets me see outside.
This curtain reflects lights
from Upper Marlboro, Maryland
What drew me to this product was the advertised " you can see out...no one can see in". If you want privacy, this is the best product to use because although no one can see in, no one can see out either.
Reflective Window Curtains
from Tallahassee, FL
As soon as I hung them on the rods I could tell the difference in temperature inside my front rooms. Everyone thought it was foil and that I could not see through them but I could, and they have a hint of blue glow under the sheers. Since they do keep out alot of heat at this point in time I am more concerned with my utility bill then the looks...I got them just in time the temperatures here has been in the upper 90's and we are expecting triple digits all next week...my neighbor is going to get some for his Mom's apartment a few doors down from me. I think I will order a few more.

works great to reduce summer heat
from Coventry Ct.
Used mine for a couple of years. Replacing with new ones this year.
Easy to install.
By Cold Feet
Used on large windows in old house as barrier to cold air in winter and will use to block sun glare in summer. Simple to slip on standard tension rod and the material is light weight and easy to handle. It is ugly--the bright silver finish looks like a tin foil curtain.

Keeps heat in,cold out,and best of all,no one can see in.
Darkens room great!
They really help with darkening a room with direct sunlight but it takes a couple of weeks for all the creases (from being folded)to flatten and really look bad until they do.
Not What I Had Hoped for!
By M from Alberta
from Alberta, Canada
My eyes are very sensitive to the light, so I was hoping these would help with bright light, but they were a disappointment. No real instructions came with them. The folds lines in them seemed pretty permanant, and light shone through each of the fold lines, in little spots where the foil had rubbed off. (No, you cannot see out very well.) Very unattractive, and definitely not as shown or described in catalog. [...]

Not what I expected.
As I said, I am disappointed. I was looking for insullation, not room darkening.
from Mammoth, AZ
We have peeping Toms in the neighborhood. The curtains provide privacy and a feeling of security.
from Post Falls,ID
After seeing them, I decided to put them away for this coming summer. They will be great for keeping out the heat and sun.

Solar curtains a must for urban parents!
By Grammy Pat

They have gone viral since the arrival of grandkids! Filters out streetlights for us city dwellers, so baby will sleep better. Daddies get more rest, too!

I'm somewhat disappointed
from Amherst, WI
The curtains do reflect, but a very thin, flimsy mylar. They tear very easily. I don't recommend them for a home with cats or small children as they won't last.
from huntsville, al
It does reduce the heat entering the room but not as great as described in the write up

CURTAINS ARE FRAGILE BUT DOES THE JOB
These work well.
from Louisville, KY
My living room is cooler and darker. I don't have to turn the air conditioning up as high as last year. They would work well in almost any room.
