Save Energy with These Window Treatments

September 27, 2016 | Blog

Save Energy with These Window TreatmentsIt may come as no surprise that the sun-facing rooms in the typical home are warmer than the other rooms. This is largely due to solar heat gain from the sun. One common and practical solution to reducing heat gain and your home’s cooling bill is installing window treatments.

Insulated Curtains

Standard curtains do very little to block heat gain in sun-struck rooms. If you are thinking about sprucing up your home with new curtains, consider using insulated curtains to make your home more efficient in the process. You may still adjust your views and light as needed, and you may reduce heat gain by up to 33 percent!

Solar Shades

Solar shades are designed to block heat gain caused by ultraviolet (UV) radiation while beautifully diffusing light into your home. Another perk of these window treatments is that they may be used inside your home or outside. Additionally, you choose the degree to which you want sunlight and views blocked.


Vertical and horizontal blinds are mainstays for many homeowners. They are elegant and easily adjusted. However, to substantially prohibit solar heat gain, they will obstruct your views because they must be closed. If you have efficient double-pane windows, blinds are a good option for giving you flexibility for privacy and better efficiency.


South Texas homeowners are very familiar with preparing for extreme weather during hurricane season. In addition to making your home more efficient, storm shutters can also provide some protection against wind-driven storms. Shutters also give you many options for design and functionality, such as louvered, roll down and solid panels.


Awnings provide curb appeal and much-needed shade for sun-struck windows. Modern awnings are typically made of synthetic materials that repel water and are resistant to mold and mildew development. If you want to warm your home on cooler days, just retract your awnings and save heating costs in addition to cooling costs.

Great company. Contacted my current AC company to check on my warranty before charging me anything. Saved me a bunch of money and headache if dealing with anything. Would definitely recommend them and use them again.
