Blinds and Shutters: Affordable Energy Savers

Pleated shades

You must be wondering how roller shades, cellular shades, or Roman shades, and blinds or shutters like that of faux and wood, wood and composite can act as energy savers.

Drapes, shutters, shades or blinds, name them anything you want, but they all serve many purposes than just the one we talked about. They add an aesthetic look to your home as well as keep your space shielded from the prying eyes and climate atrocities.

But how do they save energy?

1) They save you from heat

As the name implies, the shades save you not from the sunlight only, but also from the piercing heat that enters your home. That is obvious of course, but what is it in this for energy saving?

To answer that, first, consider your electricity bills. Yes, we know it gave you shudders because we too had been getting bills that soar high because of the air conditioning facilities we have installed.

So, after that now think about ways which could save you from this. You might have many things in mind now, but let us get you there faster. By installing shades, shutters, blinds, or any other drapes, you can bar the extra heat that enters your home through the filtering sunlight.

By doing so, your home does not get that extra heat and thus you wouldn’t need to keep that AC turned on. We must tell you that you would reduce the load on your AC by 20% and get rid of the 50% heat that enters through windows. Thus, the lesser that machine is on, the lesser the electricity bill.

2) They contain heat

In the above paragraphs, we talked about the way drapes can hinder the way of the heat from getting to your interior. Now, we would tell you about how these shutters can contain heat in your houses.

Oh, you ask when would you need that? Of course, in winter. You wouldn’t want to have your heater turned on the whole winter and see your bills growing fat.

By installing blinds, and the likes, you would have to only turn on the heater once and twice a day because the heat wouldn’t be lost faster, thanks to installation.

Alright, after answering your primary question, let us answer another one.
