As winter approaches, even here in Florida, colder temperatures will arrive, and we’ll occasionally need to turn on the heat. And in the summer, of course, the air conditioner is imperative. But both of those things can be a drain on the energy bills. Which is why finding ways to save is great. At Treasure Coast Window Fashions serving Hobe Sound, we love to share tips that can help our customers’ wallets. Read on to learn more!
Improve Your Window Treatment’s Energy Efficiency
Make the most of your window treatments during any season to help you save. This winter, on sunny days, leave your treatment open to collect the free solar heat. On cloudy days and at night, keep the treatment closed to help trap the warm air in the room. In the summer, keep the treatment closed both day and night to trap the cooler air in your home. Also, if you use more natural light than artificial light, you’ll reduce your energy bills and give you access to vitamin D. Plus, natural light has been proven to boost productivity and a person’s mood.
The Best Energy-Efficient Window Treatments
Any treatment at the window can help keep a room from losing 30% or more in heating and energy costs. But some go even further with the help they provide. Hunter Douglas is well-known for its energy-efficient treatments. In fact, the Attachments Energy Rating Council (AERC) chose Hunter Douglas as the first to receive their verified energy rating and certification for interior window coverings. The AERC-certified products include Duette® Honeycomb Shades, which offer a simple, sleek look for modern spaces, but also work well in traditional settings. The ultimate benefit, of course, is that they almost pay for themselves with the energy savings you’ll enjoy. Applause® Honeycomb Shades, which, unlike some other brands of cellular shades, are created with a double cell, which offers increased insulation over regular single-cell construction. Sonnette™ Cellular Roller Shades, which are made with a round, sculptured construction that some have dubbed “the new shape of light.” These beautiful rolling cells gently diffuse sunlight throughout the room while creating a sense of privacy.
