Improve Your Heating and Cooling Costs with Window Treatments from Budget Blinds on Vancouver Island
Windows are an important part of the energy efficiency of your home, and stylish window treatments from Budget Blinds can be a great way to improve the heating or cooling of your home. Blinds, shades, shutters and drapes provide effective insulation to keep you from losing as much as 50% of your heating and cooling energy through your windows.
Budget Blinds has many great window treatment options to choose from. Consider honeycomb shades, with a honeycomb-shaped pocket designed to keep air from escaping or entering your home. That means the rooms of your home will feel warmer in winter and cooler in summer.
Window film is also a great way to deflect 99% of damaging UV rays that fade and damage flooring and furniture, while keeping the heat out of your home. Optional motorization on blinds lets you set your blinds on a timer, meaning even if you aren't home all day, 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 our local style consultant. Our consultant can help you choose window treatments that work with your home, create comfortable environment for family and guests, and create long-term energy savings.
