Windows are an architectural feature that connects us with the outdoors, allows light and fresh air in, and even helps control unfavorable temperatures.
Unfortunately, they also allow air to escape, increasing the consumption of energy to heat and cool our homes.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy,
air leakage through windows accounts for 25% of annual heating and cooling costs.
Energy efficient window treatments can help you save hundreds of dollars while providing an aesthetic appeal.
Let’s Look At A Few Options:
Cellular Shades: These have honeycomb shaped cells that trap air within their pockets. This provides an excellent layer of insulation.
Drapery: These are not only elegant and a design bonus but also work efficiently in keeping temperatures at a desired level.
Shutters: These are installed tightly to the window frame and will save a fortune on energy costs, as they are great insulators.
Solar Shades: Unlike most window treatments, these do not block your outdoor view and are perfect to avoid the damaging effects of sunlight on energy bills and furniture.
Roman Shades: Made up of thick insulating material, these are available in various designs, fabrics and colors. They are highly functional and lower your energy costs.
