Beat The Heat With These 3 Window Treatment Options

If you think window treatments are all about improving the look of your house, it's time to think again. Window blinds are often mistaken for being more about cosmetic purposes than function.

If you look at the history of shutters, you'll find they actually pre-date window glass. Shutters served a purpose to act as a window opening cover and then a window glass pane protector, without looks being much of a concern.

While that may have been centuries ago, and the shift for more attractive window treatments is undoubtedly a factor, they still serve a purpose. One of the most beneficial aspects of window blinds, shades, curtains, or shutters is their ability to act as an insulator of both sound and temperature. If this ranks high on your list of priorities for choosing a window covering, it's time to learn about some of the best options out there.

Top 3 Window Treatments For Better Energy Efficiency

When you choose your window treatments based on other merits besides just good looks, you'll be much happier with the outcome of your project. If energy efficiency is a concern for your household, here are 3 great ways to put your window blinds or other treatments to work for you:

  • Cellular / Honeycomb Shades - At the top of the list are window blinds designed with energy conservation in mind. The honeycomb shape creates pockets of air that act as a layer of insulation. Homeowners also appreciate the clean look and the diffused natural light these shades allow to filter in, but it's the efficiency rating that makes them a popular choice for energy-conscious homeowners.
  • Shutters - By nature, all shutters create a layer of insulation when closed. The key to maximizing their energy-conserving capabilities is making sure to open and close them as needed. Homeowners also like that shutters offer the greatest amount of privacy and light control capabilities.
  • Curtains/Drapes - Almost anything more than sheer fabric for drapes will help with additional window insulation. Many homeowners opt to use curtains or drapes as a secondary layer of window treatment for looks and efficiency. You can pair them with blinds or shades quite effectively and have supplemental light control and insulation.
