Having high cooling or heating bills is a major budgetary concern for many people, but there are ways to cut costs while increasing the energy efficiency in your home. How is this possible? Choosing the right window coverings.

How can window coverings increase energy efficiency?

It’s simple. When you choose the right window coverings, they will retain heat in the winter or keep your home cool during the hot summer months. The good thing about window coverings is that they can be customized to match you décor to retain the stylish aesthetic of your room.

What are some types of energy efficient window coverings?

There are a few on the market that can help defray costs:

Studies show that medium-colored curtains with white backing can promote a reduction in heat by 33%. That’s significant! Other window coverings that can make a difference are insulated panels, mesh window screens, and overhangs. Making sure you have all cracks and leaks sealed around your windows also makes a big difference.

Being proactive in choosing the right window coverings can help you save money during each season, whether it is hot or cold outside. For more information on window coverings and how they can make a difference, contact an associate at Arjay’s Window Fashions to assist you today!
