Can Energy Efficient Window Treatments Keep Your Home Cool During the Summer?
Many of us are lucky enough to have air conditioners or other cooling systems to control our home’s temperature, but the transfer of heat through your home’s windows can really make a dent in efforts to conserve energy. If you are looking for ways to keep your home cool this summer without seeing your energy bill skyrocket, you may want to consider energy efficient window treatments. Energy-efficient shades or blinds can keep the summer heat out by blocking the sunlight and offering additional insulation; they effectively keep more of the summer heat out and more of the cooled air inside. As cooled air dissipates from your home, you lose energy (and money). Since up to 20% of cooled air dissipation happens through a house’s windows, it only makes sense to start a quest for better temperature control with the right blinds or shades.
Improve Your Home’s Energy Efficiency with the Right Blinds or Shades:
Choosing the right blinds or shades for your home can make a big difference. If you want to improve your home’s energy efficiency, help keep the temps down inside while the heat is raging outside, or save on your energy bill, the easiest and most affordable place to start is with your window coverings. Consider some of the best window coverings for summer the experts here at Blinds Chalet recommend for keeping the heat out in Summer 2022.

Your Solid Print Roman Shades Shipment: Identifying Your Shades
Before you even open your boxes, there’s something you should look for on the box exterior. Check for a label (generally a separate label smaller than the actual shipping label) that designates what is included in the box. Along with the basic product info, you should also see the “name” you gave the shade when you input the measurements and specifications and added it to your cart on BlindsChalet.com.
For example, you may have “named” your shade something like “movie room” or “Master West Wall” or “Nursery #1,” etc. Paying attention to the “names” printed on the box label makes it far easier to identify your different shades without remeasuring each and every one and comparing them to your original window measurements.
Check for Missing Shades or Missing Boxes:
Before you dive in and start installing your window shades, we also recommend that you do a quick check to make sure you’ve got all the shades you ordered, all the boxes in your shipment have arrived, and that your shades are going to fit in your windows (there were not measurement mistakes – on your end OR our end). Checking the labels to identify which rooms and windows your shades belong to makes it much quicker to determine if there are any window shades missing from your order. If for some reason, you have a shade or two missing…call customer service or jump online to chat with one of the Design Consultants. But not until you double check that your full order has been delivered. A missing shade will sometimes mean that your order is arriving in multiple boxes, and there may still be a box or two in transit.
For example, if you received 2 boxes and they are marked 1 of 3 and 3 of 3 – there’s one box that hasn’t been delivered. Sign in to your account at BlindsChalet.com and check your order status to see if there’s still one more box on the way, and track it for its eta. Or call customer service or access a Design Consultant through Online Chat.
