Energy efficient window treatments can translate into considerable utility bill savings. Though windows can be an attractive feature in any home, they can also account for 10% to 25% of a family's heating bill.

Rising prices for heating oil and natural gas could mean big bills once again this winter. Choosing energy saving window blinds and implementing other energy efficiency improvements can reduce the cost of heating and cooling the average home by up to 25%.

Environmental and consumer organizations have released a report documenting how natural gas and heating oil prices are creating real hardships for many American families this winter. Research shows that by using simple solutions such as sealing up drafts in windows and installing programmable thermostats, the average American family could save up to $750 in heating costs each year.

Though windows can be an attractive feature in any home; providing views, daylight, ventilation, and solar heating in the winter; they can also account for 10% to 25% of a family's heating bill. Since it costs the average American home about $1,300 to heat, that's up to $325 going right out the window! Also during the summer, air conditioners must work harder to cool hot air from sunny windows, eating much more energy and driving up costs.

Using energy efficient window treatments can translate into considerable utility bill savings. Blinds Chalet offers tips for window covering options that maximize the energy efficiency of a home:

Blinds can be an effective way to keep the house cooler in the summer, by reducing heat gain by around 45%. Wood blinds and faux wood blinds are extremely practical and provide for unsurpassed air and light flow, work to minimize harmful summer sun radiation and maximize heat retention during winter. Also blinds with trapezoid shaped bottom rails offer better closure, block more light, and maximize insulation.

Shades can also greatly increase the energy efficiency of your home. The U.S. Department Of Energy website states that, "when properly installed, window shades can be one of the simplest and most effective window treatments for saving energy."

According to Russ LeSueur, Owner of Blinds Chalet, "Cellular shades, sometimes called honeycomb shades provide excellent insulation to your windows. The unique double cell construction traps the air and keeps your home cooler in the summer months and warmer during the winter months." Blinds Chalet, a window covering company, offers cell shades in both single and double cell construction.

Here are some other simple solutions to keeping energy costs down:

* During winter, keep the shades or blinds on south-facing windows open during the day to allow sunlight and heat to enter the home.
* Close blinds and shades at night to help reduce heat loss. Also, when closing blinds, you'll maximize insulation if you close the blinds with the leading edge up.
* During summer, keep the window coverings closed during the day to prevent the sun from heating the home.
* Be sure to caulk and weatherstrip around the windows, to reduce air leakage or infiltration.
