Keep Your Home Cool In The Summer With Window Treatments

Keep your home cool in the summer with window treatments

Summer is officially here! Along with it will come a rise in the use of your air-conditioner and an increase in your energy bills. Keeping your home cool can become awfully expensive, extremely fast. Fortunately, you aren't at the mercy of only your HVAC system to keep your home nice and chilled during these hot months.

There are certain ways to keep your home comfortable, and when applied in combination with your HVAC system, they can also assist with your energy costs. An efficient way to lessen interior temperature levels is to prevent heat from entering the home initially.

The transfer of heat through your home's windows is one of the major sources of heat penetration. Hindering the sun's rays from entering through the window will allow the home's interior temperature to be better managed. A window shutter company can offer you options when attempting to keep the heat from infiltrating the living spaces in your home.

Energy-Saving Window Remedies

River City Blinds offers an array of energy-saving window remedies that will assist in maintaining a comfortable home year-round. The best option for your home will depend on exactly how much of the sun's rays enter your home through a specific window. South-facing windows that lack shade will produce the greatest amount of heat transfer, while north-facing windows near a porch or shade will have a minimum heat transfer. Our top product options for lowering interior heat are:

Solar Shades - Solar shades are made of materials that filter and disperse light to block UV rays and lower room temperature. Are best used for sunny windows.

Cellular Shades - Cellular shades make use of a honeycomb design to confine heat among pieces of fabric, which reduces heat transfer.

Energy-Saving Materials - Hundreds of fabric choices and colors in energy-saving materials will be provided, which means window remedies can be custom designed in any fashion you choose.
