Energy Efficient Window Coverings
In the Pacific Northwest, summers are warm and winters are cold. The changes in temperature have home owners turning on the air conditioning or turning up the heat. Instead of spending extra on energy bills, there is another solution for those warm nights and cold days- energy efficient window coverings. Many people do not realize that your windows can both allow cool air to escape when it’s warm out, and also let warm air out when it’s cold outside. Energy efficient window coverings can assist you in keeping your home a consistent temperature while reducing your energy use and energy bills.
