Energy Efficiency

Tips on Reducing Energy Loss in Windows

With the ever rising cost of energy, exploring means available to cut down on electric and gas bills is indeed helpful. One of them is to use your window treatments to the fullest by making windows more energy efficient. They are a great investment that will pay itself off many times over with installation on windows that are exposed to intense sunlight, winds, rain, or snow. Simply opening and closing your window coverings when appropriate can reduce energy consumption in your home. 
  • During summer, closing those on windows that face the sun can reduce cooling costs. 
  • During winter, ensure drapes and blinds are open to allow the sun to heat a home for free, and shut them at night to help insulate the room. 
They can make a huge difference not just in creating a more comfortable room setting but also in making windows more energy efficient!
