Cut your energy bill with window treatments

Window treatments are a quick and easy way to liven up a room, and make a dull window look great.

There are several types of window coverings you can choose from including shutters, blinds, and drapes. Each have their own unique light-reducing and enhancing properties and can bring style and elegance to a space.

But did you know that window treatments also carry a thermal value? Yes, that means it can actually keep heat and cool in a room, saving you hard-earned dollars on your energy bill.

Take shutters for example, if you get high quality shutters, it will increase the R-value of your window, which is how thermal resistance is measured; basically, how well it insulates a room. Many windows don’t have a high R-value on their own, but add some shutters and that will increase the efficiency.

By how much? Well, it depends on your particular windows and the type of shutter you install, but you can improve a window’s efficiency from 25% to 100%! Talk about fashion paired with function.

Drapery done the right way can also increase the efficiency of your windows, while allowing only as much sunlight into the room as you desire.
