Did you know as much as 20% of your home’s indoor air is lost to your windows? Whether you’re in the summer or winter months, covering your windows correctly can lead to great energy savings through proper insulation. Especially if you live in Northeast Atlanta, where many of the homes are more than 30 years old, window coverings can be especially useful.
No matter what room in your home or office you want to cover, there are ample options for you! Let’s look at a few of our options to keep your home and office cool or warm, depending on the season.
Types of Shades for Insulation
Cellular shades are your best energy-saving option when you don’t want to completely obstruct your view outside, but still want to cancel out harmful UV rays. Cellular shades are also known as the honeycomb shade and can add style and lightness to any room of your home, while maintaining cool temperatures throughout! And, if you want to block out light completely, perhaps for a restful night’s sleep, you can get cellular shades in sheer, light filtering, room darkening, and blackout fabrics.
As the name suggests, solar shades are an efficient option to keeping solar heat out of your home. This can help aid against higher energy usage and discomfort in your living space— a place meant to be cool and comfortable all year ‘round! Solar shades help diffuse natural sunlight, block harmful UV rays, and maintain a cool temperature in your rooms. Solar shades an amazing option for your outdoor patios and decks, too, as their UV blocking abilities carry over to the outdoors as well. Protect your family and your guests this summer by utilizing practical solar shades!
