Ever wonder why wearing a hat or a beanie is so helpful in cold weather? Not only does it keep your ears warm, but it is a well-known fact that heat rises, even out of the top of your head! This is true in any and all situations, especially true when you are trying to insulate your home against the oncoming winter chill.
Skylight Blinds for the WinterWhy Invest in Skylight Blinds?
Many homeowners have window treatments on the standard windows inset into their walls, but what they don’t realize is that even with these windows insulated, you can still lose much of your home’s heat through your skylights if you don’t have them covered! Skylight blinds are great window treatments to invest in for a number of reasons. Perhaps even more useful than their insulating properties, skylight blinds will keep that early morning sun out on days that you would like to enjoy some extra sleep. They can also provide you with a dark room if you need to take a little siesta during the afternoon. A window covering on your skylight also provides you with a way to insulate your bedroom against the heat of the sun. During the hot summer months, the sun can turn your room into an oven before you feel like waking up; installing skylight blinds or shades will keep the warmth of the sun at bay until you are ready for its warm glow.
During this winter, save your family some money for extra Christmas gifts by installing skylight blinds throughout your home. The decreased usage of your furnace will help to add some extra money into your pockets during a holiday season where everyone can use some extra cash! Skylight blinds can be motorized, making them child-safe and easy to operate, or they can be installed with cords and rods for more traditional window covering operation. Skylight shades or blinds will make the perfect addition to your home this winter and will be a purchase that you can enjoy year-round; you will enjoy them from the time you wake up until the time you need to go to sleep!
