Window Covers and Films can Save Money by Controlling Solar Heat Gain

While there’s no question that window treatments primarily serve a decorative function, they can also reduce your monthly electrical bills by regulating indoor temperature. This is important because winter’s just around the corner, and WAWV says that you should start refitting your home with energy-efficient window covers before the cold sets in. A combination of window drapes and blinds is one option specifically recommended by Angie’s List, the leading provider of consumer reviews in the country, since it offers maximum sun protection and little heat loss.

Making a Cozier Home for the Holidays by Getting Window Coverings


Remember, the treatments you’ll purchase must be significantly larger than your windows, perhaps twice the width of the window frames themselves. This ensures that your drapes or shades provide complete coverage, especially if you put great stock on privacy more than aesthetics. For the visual elements, see to it that your treatments don’t clash with the colors of your furniture and walls. Ensuring that your treatments fit the holiday theme, like red and green for Christmas, will also help.
