Energy Efficient Tip of the Month: Window Coverings

Looking for an affordable way to help keep your home more comfortable and reduce energy use all year long? Consider insulated window coverings.

Installing new energy-efficient windows throughout your house is expensive. Insulated window coverings offer a lower-cost alternative that can help reduce energy use. They are available in a variety of different styles including curtains and shades, and you can find them in designs and colors to match almost any décor.

In the summer, insulated window coverings help your air conditioning work more efficiently by blocking the sun. In the winter, they help your home retain heat so your furnace doesn’t cycle on as frequently.

They’re easier to install than new windows, help reduce drafts from leaky windows and can help lower your energy bill every month.
