- Take a green step and select energy efficient window treatments that will reduce your heating, air conditioning costs and energy consumption. You can save up to 40% in your energy bills.
Insulation is one of the many benefits the proper window coverings will provide you. Window treatments can provide real insulation to keep a room warm during the winter or cool during the summer.
Here are some popular choices:
Cellular shades: their construction increases insulation and reduces the effect of cold and icy air. They come in a variety of fabrics, and can be lined for a room darkening effect to create a complete black out. This will also increase your insulation.
These shades have a state-of-the-art, patented, honeycomb-within it- design offering the industry’s highest level of energy efficiency. The shades are so energy efficient they can reduce energy loss up to 50%. More companies make them with 100% recyclable materials.
Greenguard solar shades: they protect against the sun and heat. The Greenguard Certification ProgramSM is an industry-independent, third-party testing program for low-emitting products and materials.
Traditional lined drapes: have good insulation against cold and heat, and can be lined with a quilt to double the insulation. They can be made with organic fabrics.
Woven wood blinds: more companies make them with natural fibers. These materials offer strength and durability and come from sustainable resources like natural grasses, reeds and bamboo.
