Summer weather is here and the sunny hot days are seeping into our homes. Air conditioners are chugging along trying to keep us cool. Considering the costs of the next fuel bill, there is an old fashioned way to help to conserve energy. Window Treatments!
As our mothers did before us, keeping the window treatments closed during the hottest, sunniest parts of the day can provide excellent insulation from summer heat. It can save you money and save energy for the planet.
Another reason to close your drapery, blinds, etc. is to protect your furniture, carpet and wood floors from fading. Even a sheer fabric over your window can offer some protection from the damages that the sun can make.
Closing your window treatments will also shield you and your belongings from inquisitive people walking by. Whether you are at work during the day or sitting at home at night, privacy is always important.
Choosing the best window treatments for each of your rooms is a task that requires careful thought and planning. Not only are window treatments a beautiful addition to your home, they are a sound investment as well.
