How do window treatments make my home more energy efficient?
Energy efficiency is a major concern amongst homeowners, and the simple fact is that custom window coverings make homes more energy efficient. In the warm summer months, window treatments offer insulation that prevents cold air from escaping the home. At the same time, window treatments protect against warm air transferring from the window to the home. In warmer areas, the temperature in a window opening can easily exceed 125° F. Without window treatments to both block and absorb the heat, it will transfer throughout the house, raising the temperature substantially. The same concept holds true for cold, winter months. Window fashions insulate the home, limiting the warm air that escapes while also blocking the cold air from entering. As a result window coverings drastically decrease your heating and cooling costs.
