Keep Cool this Summer With the Right Window Coverings From Budget Blinds

Posted: Jul 26, 2019

As the summer heats up, consider what your window coverings are doing to keep you cool. Windows are a key component of the energy efficiency of your home, and the right window treatments from Budget Blinds of the North Island can be a great way to improve the heating or cooling of your home. Blinds, shades, shutters and drapes all provide effective insulation to keep you cool in the summer and warm in the winter.

Budget Blinds has a variety of window treatment options to choose from, to ensure your home is both comfortable and looks great! One popular option is cellular shades, with their honeycomb-shaped pockets which keep air from escaping or entering your home, protecting you from the elements.

Window film is also a great way to deflect nearly all of the damaging UV rays that fade and damage flooring and furniture, while also keeping the heat out of your home. Optional motorization on blinds lets you set your blinds on a timer, meaning even while you're away at work or on vacation, your blinds will open and close at the best time to keep the heat in or out.

Not sure what blinds, shades, shutters, or drapes might work best for your home? Schedule a free consultation with a Budget Blinds designer, who can help you choose the window treatments that work best with your home to create a comfortable environment for your family and guests while also providing you with long-term energy savings.
