Lower Your Energy Bill with Window Treatments

Apr 20, 2022

Window treatments usually serve two purposes in our homes: One, for the most practical reason, they offer much-needed privacy, especially in bedrooms and bathrooms. Two, we dress up our windows in drapes, blinds and decorative shades for beauty and style purposes. But, what if we told you that with the right materials those same window coverings could help lower your monthly energy bills?

Whether you prefer shades, blinds, drapes, or shutters, you can minimize heat loss in winter and heat gain in the summer, which can significantly lower both heating and cooling costs. This is a cheaper alternative to replacing windows that are weak and allow cold air in or warm air to escape. Most importantly however is proper installation. For example, mounting shades as close to the glass as possible and right up against the adjacent wall creates a tight seal.

Before investing in energy efficient window treatments, consider which room(s) the treatments will be going into, what the room is used for and how much you plan to open or close them. Knowing these details will help you make the right decision based on the room and your usage.

We are extremely pleased with our whole experience with this company. From sales to installation, everyone we dealt with was courteous and professional. They delivered exactly as promised from the quote, to the installation and did a great job! The shutters took our house from beautiful to stunning! Highly recommend this company!
Blinds look awesome! The install was quick and lacked any drama. Just like I want. :-) We will definitely be buying from them again once we redo a couple areas in the house first.
The entire experience was excellent. We had roller shades installed throughout our home. The online notification system after your order is great. We received regular email updates regarding the status of the fabrication of our order, delivery, and installation.
Southwest Blinds was wonderful to work with. The communication was excellent. All the employees from sales to the installers were professional and kind. Answered all our questions. I highly recommend them.
Southwest Blinds and Shutters provided a remarkable product for a great value! We are extremely pleased with the job done. James is a true professional who stands behind his company on all levels. We would highly recommend Southwest Blinds & Shutters and are looking forward to having the rest of our windows done with them.
Fast and professional. Super efficient and detail-oriented. Very pleased with the service they provided. Don’t hesitate to schedule them for your blind and shutter needs.
They did a great job installing my shutters. Very polite and went the extra mile to do some minor adjustments that I requested. He identified a couple of things that were incorrect on my order and made sure new items were ordered. He came back to reinstall the corrected pieces and did a great job.
This is one top notch company! They provided a wonderful variety of samples when they came to my home and were able to patiently answer all my questions about their products. Very professional! I felt like they really cared about my satisfaction with my choices all the way to the final installation. The installer was on time, pleasant, very neat, and did a wonderful job. I absolutely love my new shutters and would highly recommend Southwest Blinds and Shutters to anyone in the Valley. You will not be disappointed!
The technician who measured our windows and eventually installed them did a professional job and was done very quickly. Got our rebate form promptly and would do business again if we are ever in need.
James was doing a job across the street and we asked him to come over for an estimate. We hired on the spot and were genuinely pleased with the quality and service we received. He worked fast and clean and on time. Very pleased with the outcome.
