Big bright windows are a fabulous feature in any home, but have you considered how they affect your home’s heating and cooling?
As much as 50% of a home's heating and cooling energy can be lost through the windows, costing you extra money and making it difficult to regulate home temperatures. Many experts agree that an average house featuring 15 windows outfitted with energy efficient window coverings can achieve an annual energy savings of approximately $150. Remember, “it’s the little things” such as energy efficient window treatments, that make a difference in helping to conserve energy.
So rather than cranking up your heat or air conditioning to avoid uncomfortable temperatures inside your home, look to Budget Blinds for a number of great solutions. Choose from an array of versatile blinds, shades, shutters, and window film that are practical, energy efficient, and stylish.
Cellular shades, also known as honeycomb shades, combine the soft look and energy efficiency of window shades with the functionality of horizontal blinds.
Layering your curtains or drapery with light filtering or room darkening liners helps control light gaps and improve insulation retention.
Traditional wood shutters use an insulating design that helps make indoor spaces cooler in summer and warmer in winter, keeping your room at an ideal temperature.
Window film deflects up to 99% of damaging UV rays, reducing heat gain and protecting your furniture against harmful UV damage.
To maximize energy efficiency, consider our floor-to-ceiling drapes that fold back against the wall. This allows the drapes to seal off the window, preventing drafts and loss of heat through convection.
