Sooner than later winter will come and fall is the perfect time to warm up and winterize the home. One of the best ways you can prepare your home for the winter months is scheduling window treatments to better control home drafts. Unlike weatherstrips and caulking windows, window treatments can prevent drafts and cut heat loss from your home windows. But how do window treatments warm up the home? The window treatments keep the home warm with its extra insulation. Remember most home heat escapes from the windows, walls, floors and the roof. When you do not have proper home insulation, you can expect a high energy bill and drafty home. Window treatments function especially well when homeowners use blinds, shades and window treatments together. The blinds will give you the opportunity to bring in sunlight during the day and keep out the cold air with closed blinds. The shades will keep the heat from leaking out your windows and the window treatments will keep the cold air out, making for an extra cozy home.
Keep in mind there are many types of insulation homeowners use to keep their homes warm, including cellulose insulation, spray foam, and wool insulation. But when it comes to your windows, custom window treatments are your best option. Homeowners will want window treatments especially for homes with large windows as the cold climate will spike the energy bill. With custom window treatments, you will enhance your home comfort, improve the ambiance and experience energy savings this winter. A design consultation can help you improve the window performance of your windows by offering you feedback on how to choose energy-efficient window treatments without sacrificing style.
The most energy-efficient window treatments are the custom window treatments which control light while maintaining excellent insulation. There are different window treatment styles you can use for the home. Ask at your design consultation what window treatments are best for kitchens, bedrooms, living rooms, bathrooms and the home office. During your design consultation, discuss the mood you hope to create in your home. Do you want a cozy and snug feel? Do you want to give off an elegant feel? You can do all the above by using window treatments. And you cannot go wrong with well-designed window treatments because the custom window treatments increase home value.
