As more people move toward environmentally friendly solutions for their homes and businesses, window treatments are no exception. At Clear Fortress Window Solutions, we offer treatments designed to add a touch of elegance to any room while boosting energy efficiency.
How Can Energy-Efficient Window Treatments Benefit You?
Did you know that windows are responsible for around 30% of heat loss in a property? This loss of heat — as well as the loss of cool air during warmer months — results in the need for HVAC systems to work harder to regulate the temperature. Energy-efficient window treatments are designed to help prevent energy loss by controlling the temperature in a space, which helps lower energy costs.
Energy-saving window treatments insulate a room during cold months and keep it warm. When it’s hot outside, they reduce the heat gain and glare from the sun. With energy window solutions, you can enjoy comfort in your home or business all year round.
Top 5 Energy-Efficient Window Treatments
While all window treatments provide a level of temperature control, some treatments are specifically made to be energy-efficient. Here are the top five energy-saving window treatments.
Both vertical and horizontal window blinds reduce heat gain and loss during hot and cold months. During summer, closed blinds can prevent sunlight from entering the interior and increasing the temperature. In winter, blinds can easily be opened to let sunlight in for solar heating.
Shutters are usually made of wood or faux wood, which both have insulating qualities. The sturdy materials make it easy for shutters to trap air and add insulation. To help lower energy costs, open shutters on cold days to allow sunlight inside and close them on warm days.
Regarding the energy efficiency of draperies, the material and length are essential. Draperies made from heavy, high-quality materials with insulation properties are an excellent energy-saving window treatment option. Make sure they are fitted to reach the floor to reduce air movement for maximum energy efficiency.
Cellular shades are considered one of the most energy-efficient window treatments. The individual cells that run down these shades effectively trap air and prevent it from entering your property. When you install shades in your home or business, the cold and warm air cannot affect the temperature in a room, allowing for energy savings.
Motorized Window Treatments
Motorized treatments offer an excellent way of blocking heat and sunlight during summer and keeping cold air out during winter. They can be set to open and close at optimal times of the day, increasing your property’s energy efficiency.
