New window shades and blinds can create a greener home
Mar 15 2011
While the housing market continues to remain stagnant, the market for home remodeling has boomed in the wake of the recession. More and more Americans are preferring to stay and improve their existing homes rather than move into a new one. The result has been a growth in the interest in sustainable products and those that will cut consumer's utility bills by a significant margin.
Proper use of window treatments can reduce your energy costs and create a greener home.
What many homeowners don't realize is the incredible insulating qualities that a proper window treatment can offer their home. In addition to controlling the amount of light that filters in, certain window blinds and shades can form a tight seal on your windows to control air leakage.
The world of window coverings has many possibilities in store for your home, with a wide range of decorative possibilities. Products such as roller shades and cell shades can be custom-made to fit your windows and can be made with blackout or light-filtering capability.
Honeycomb cellular shades are the best option to decrease the size of your energy bills. The shades come in single and double-celled varieties that provide excellent insulation for your home in any season.
