The windows of your home are one of the main reasons your costs for heat and air condition can be high. Below are a few styles of window treatments that can help to reduce your energy costs.
When your blinds are completely lowered, they can help to reduce heating and cooling costs by up to 40%. You can also adjust this window treatment to redirect sunlight onto a lighter colored surface, like a ceiling, allowing it to diffuse light without significant heat or glare.
Shades can be a simple and effective window treatment. Raising the shades during cooler temperatures will help to warm a room up by letting the sun in. By lowering the shades when temperatures are warmer you will be able to keep cool air inside and warm air outside. You can do this manually or by using technology that uses automated controls to shade at the right time of day for energy saving costs.
Cellular Shades offer a buffer between your windows and room using single or double celled pleats of fabric. This extra layer offers an insulating property to help keep the heat in or cool out allowing you to reduce your energy costs in a very efficient way.
Dual Shades offer a design that combines two shades into one. Each shade can be raised or lowered independently allowing you to let in a little or as much light as you wish. These shades work well in bedrooms and home theatre rooms where you may wish to control the amount of light in the room.
With roller shades, you can let in as much or as little light as you would like in your room two ways. The first is by choosing from a variety of weaves or blackout options, and secondly when raising or lowering the shades during different times of the day. These will allow you to control the room’s temperature using the sun coming through a window rather than using a furnace or heater.
