While almost anything you put in your window will help block the heat of the sun in summer and reduce heat loss in winter, not all window treatments and window coverings are created equal when it comes to insulating or adding energy efficiency to your home. To help you find the best energy efficient window treatments and coverings for your needs, we have identified these particular blinds, shades and shutters that are especially energy efficient. Choosing the right window treatments could save you up to $150 annually.
Installing an energy efficient shade in your home is not only good for your pocketbook, but good for the environment as well. By reducing your heating and air conditioning needs, you are also helping to reduce the demand for energy and the byproducts of its production. Energy efficient shades offer additional savings by blocking harmful UV rays to protect your home furnishings from fading. Shades, especially cellular shades, provide the most energy efficiency, but if you prefer the slatted look of blinds, shutters are a perfect choice.
Shutters offer the look you prefer with an insulation factor because they close tightly and cover the window to help prevent outside temperature extremes from impact the indoor temperature.
Since most energy efficient shades need to be drawn to cover the window and provide insulating results, you might consider solar screens for windows where you would like to keep your view or still need some natural light. If you choose a solar shade or an energy efficient blind, layering your blind with thermal curtains is another way to get the benefits of insulation and UV protection while still controlling the amount of light and your style. Choosing a product with a top down/bottom up option is also a great option for balancing lighting and insulating needs.
Although light is substantially blocked, some vague shadows may be visible.
Opaque window treatments are made from fabrics or materials that block light.
