Window treatments are about more than just style and looks. Blinds, shades, shutters, and so on have other benefits such as energy saving qualities. The right window treatment can minimize heat loss in the winter and reduce heat gain in the summer.
Blinds can be used to control light and ventilation, allowing you to block and reflect direct sunlight. According to energy.gov, when completely closed and lowered on a sunny window, highly reflective blinds can reduce heat gain by around 45%1. With the control blinds provide, you can realize savings on your energy costs.
Certain window treatments are more energy efficient than others. To fully take advantage of the energy saving benefits of window treatments, choose the proper color and materials.
