Energy Saving Window Treatments
3 Day Blinds is here to help you become more energy-efficient by choosing the right window treatments for your home.
Window treatments can greatly impact the energy use in your home, which is a priority for our customers. At 3 Day Blinds we have several options for you to enhance your insulation needs. Did you know a home’s heating and cooling energy is most often lost through its windows? In addition to lowering your heating and cooling costs, our window treatments can help protect your furniture and flooring from damaging ultraviolet rays from the sun.
Types of Energy-Efficient Window Treatments
Most window treatments will provide some energy savings when closed or lowered. For the best in energy efficiency, we recommend our Cellular/Honeycomb Shades. It is the hexagon-shaped cells of the Cellular/Honeycomb Shade which trap air, keeping rooms warm on a freezing cold winter night and cool on a hot summer afternoon. Hung close to the window, single-, double- and even triple-cell Cellular/Honeycomb Shade will provide the maximum amount of insulation.
Other great energy saving window treatments include our Roman Shades, Woven Wood Shades, Wood Blinds, Faux Wood Blinds and Shutters. For maximum energy savings combine a blind, or shade, with one of our custom draperies. This can help greatly reduce the amount of energy that passes through your window. Draperies act as an extra layer of insulation for your windows and are a great way to finish off any room
