When manufacturing window treatments there are several ways he can help reduce the impact on the environment:
Energy EfficientSaving energy is not only good for your wallet but it is also good for the environment. Window coverings help reduce energy consumption by providing thermal protection. During the winter months they provide insulation preventing heat loss. Window coverings also reduce heat gain during the hot summer months. Consider your location on which type of window treatment is best for you.
Adding window coverings to your home saves energy but not all window coverings are equal. We have developed a simple energy calculator to help consumers determine which window covering best meets their needs.
