What's on Your Windows?
Window treatments add a detailed, finished look to your space...but there is another added benefit that comes along with a variety of styles you may choose from- energy efficiency!
Whether you prefer Draperies, Shutters, Roman Shades, Dual Shades, Cellular Shades, Solar Shades or a combination of styles, window treatments can reduce heat gain by up to 45%.
Cellular shades are a popular choice for energy efficiency. The honeycomb design provides an extra layer of insulation between the window and your living space.
Twin shades provide even greater efficiency. For maximum effect, place a highly reflective (white) shade on one side and a heat absorbing (dark) shade on the other side.
Solar shade fabrics come in a variety of weaves, which permits different levels of light and UV rays to pass through. Choosing a larger weave and darker fabric allows for a clearer view of the outside and less light on the inside. A lighter toned fabric results in cooler inside temperatures.
Roman shades offer a wide variety of styles and materials to choose from.They are a practical and stylish choice for added insulation.
Shutters work well for directing the sunlight to the upper levels of the space. Using the adjustable louvers angels the light to the ceiling, encouraging the heat to rise and improving overall ventilation. Greater insulation may be achieved by combining shutters and another treatment, such as draperies.
Draperies. Depending on the material you choose, how many layers are added and the colors of the fabric, draperies can be a wonderful choice for helping to keep your space cooler.
