5 Window Treatments That Are Good for the Environment and Your Savings

SAN DIEGO, CA--(Marketwired - Nov 4, 2015) - Window treatments are often overlooked as an energy savings addition to a home; in most cases they are viewed as decorative. Today we have many selections of window coverings from tall drapes to motorized blinds, simply changing your window coverings can dramatically change the look of a home. Window coverings are decorative but they also provide energy conservation and over time that adds up to large energy savings. Custom fit window coverings will help a homeowner lower their heating and cooling bills by as much as 10% a month.

Here is a list of the most energy saving window treatments available today:

1. Cellular Shades- Cellular shades are often called honeycomb shades. The shade is made of individual cells that trap air inside them and significantly help control the temperature of a room.
2. Indoor Shutters- Indoor Shutters are still one of the most classic window coverings and they are very energy efficient in design. Wood shutters offer plenty of charm to a room and are very easy to clean and maintain. They offer great insulation by trapping air between the window and shutter.
3. Blackout Drapes- The beauty of drapes is they can offer a soft, colorful look that many people love in a room while at the same time providing energy efficiency. When looking for drapes look for drapes that have a thick lining that will protect the interior from summer sun and winter cold. For maximum energy efficiency and appeal hang drapes high and wide around the windows.
4. Window Films- Window films are thin sheets of plastic that you can adhere directly to your window panes in order to help insulate and privatize your home. In addition you can use reflective films that reflect the warm rays of the sun away from your home.
5. Roman Shades- Roman shades are a cost effective window treatment for energy saving as long as they are properly selected and installed. Roller shades can help insulate your home from heat and cold transfer.
