SAVE MONEY WITH WINDOW TREATMENTS
Windows can be responsible for over 25% of heating and cooling costs.
BLINDS are more effective at reducing summer heat gain than winter heat loss.
- When blinds are completely closed and lowered on a sunny window, highly reflective blinds can reduce heat gain by around 45%
SHADES are great for saving energy!
- Honeycomb shades are typically the most effective window treatments.
- Mounting shades as close to the glass as possible, with the sides held close to the wall to establish a sealed air space.
DRAPERIES stay cooler in the summer than some other window treatments because their pleats and folds lose heat through convection.
- When drawn during cold weather, most conventional draperies can reduce heat loss from a warm room up to 10%
EXTERIOR SHUTTERS provide weather protection and added security!
INTERIOR SHUTTERS that are louvered work best for summer shading, but won’t provided much insulation against heat loss in the winter.
