Lower Your Energy Bill with Window Treatments

Oct 20, 2017

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.

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.
