Window Treatments for Greenhouses
Greenhouses are incredible sources of light and warmth in the winter. However, winter nights, even with double paned windows can suck the warmth right out of the house. In the summertime without appropriate window treatments, greenhouse windows can literally cook a house, spiking the need for air conditioning and fans that drain precious energy resources.
With the right window treatments used the right way, energy efficiency for greenhouses can be greatly increased. In the winter, we recommend opening blinds or shades during the day to allow the sun’s natural heat to help warm the home. However, as soon as the sun goes down, pull the shades to help keep the heat in the home. In the summer, keep window treatments closed during peak daylight hours. This will help keep the home cool. If possible, open windows and blinds during the evening to let cooler air filter throughout the home.
If you need to purchase new window treatments before the summer sun starts baking homes, consider the following.
Window treatments for Greenhouse windows and doors include:
Look for custom made window treatments to ensure the proper fit for the window and to maximize energy efficiency. If you are unsure of how to measure a window, look for an online window treatment company that offers advice and direction. You can also call a customer service hotline through a trusted online retailer to ensure you are properly measuring your window. The goal is to provide a tight seal against the outdoor elements. This will bring effective cooling or warming of the home as needed.
