Our blinds provide much more than just a way to cover a window or decorate a room. They offer privacy and let you adjust the outside view to suit your needs. Further, they protect your home from harmful UV rays while allowing you to adjust natural light at different times during the day.
Blinds work best when used in conjunction with external weather protection. Our instinct may be to crank up the air conditioner in summer, for instance, to maintain a cool interior, but that may not be the best option. The best way to save money would be to install window treatments that will keep the house cooler in summer and warmer in winter. We provide several natural window coverings that are designed to provide insulation from the outside temperature so you won’t have to use energy-intensive appliances which will cost you a lot! Read on if you’re looking for ways to save money year-round with the right window treatment solution.
About 30% of the heat lost from buildings through windows is lost and 76% of the sunlight falling on double-pane windows in summer converts into heat. It suggests that window coverings can lower energy bills by reducing heat loss through windows.
Today, minimizing energy usage is the need of the hour and energy-efficient window treatments are an excellent way to accomplish that! They reduce our utility bills, minimize our carbon footprint, and help us do our part for the planet.
However, the amount of energy savings depends on when you keep your window coverings open and closed. Optimize cost savings by opening them at strategic times of day and season. When the weather cools down in summer, you should keep blinds, shades, or drapes closed in the afternoons during the hotter days, and open them in the evenings when it’s cooler. Winter, on the other hand, is the time for keeping them closed at night, but on a sunny morning, they can be opened to let in some sunlight.
We have blinds that release automatically when the room temperature rises. That way, there is no need for users to open and close the blinds at varying times of the day or year. Think about pairing your window treatments with drapes for enhanced energy savings, as they provide an extra layer of insulation!
In your quest to save money and sustain the environment, we’ve compiled a guide to the top and most energy-efficient blinds that can save you money and enhance your comfort level, while still adding style to your home! So, are we ready to move away from the power-hungry devices in favour of more sustainable and affordable alternatives like window blinds? Let’s get started!
