Take the Edge Off the Heat This Summer with Energy Efficient Window Treatments
Without energy efficient window treatments, your home could lose as much as 50% of its heating and cooling energy through its windows. Even if your window treatments are not designed to be energy efficient, just the fact that you have them on your windows helps insulate your home.
Back in the 70's, honeycomb shades were invented in response to the energy crisis and as a way to help homeowners take advantage of the energy savings window treatments can provide. Honeycomb or cellular shades are designed to trap warm air in summer and cold air in the winter, keeping you home cooler or warmer. Energy efficient window treatments, like honeycomb shades, work 24/7 to lower your energy bills and make your home more comfortable.
5 Tips for Saving Energy in your Home
- Ensure your windows and doors are properly weather-stripped.
- Close your window coverings during summer days to keep the heat out.
- Caulk around basement and storm windows.
- Open your window coverings during sunny winter days to catch free solar heat then close them at night to keep that heat in.
- When heating or cooling, keep windows locked.
