Windows play a significant role in controlling the energy efficiency of your home. While they allow natural light to filter in and offer picturesque views, untreated windows can also let in heat during summer and allow warmth to escape in the winter. This can drastically increase your energy usage and inflate your utility bills. But worry not, Longhorn is here with a host of interior window treatments that enhance energy efficiency and can substantially lower your energy bill.
Understanding Energy Efficiency
Energy efficiency involves reducing unnecessary energy usage by using less energy to perform the same function. For windows, this means limiting heat loss during colder months and reducing heat gain during warmer months, thus lowering the need for artificial heating or cooling.
Energy-Efficient Window Treatments
With the right interior window treatments, you can improve the insulation of your windows, reducing your reliance on heating and cooling systems and, ultimately, lowering your energy costs. At Longhorn, we offer a variety of solutions:
Insulated Cellular Shades
Also known as honeycomb shades, these window treatments are a top performer when it comes to increasing energy efficiency. The unique honeycomb design creates air pockets that act as insulators, blocking or trapping air that tries to enter or exit your home.
Thermal Curtains and Drapes
Thermal curtains and drapes are not only stylish, but they can also reduce heat loss in winter and keep your home cool in summer. These window treatments have a unique insulating layer that helps prevent air from escaping or entering your home.
Window quilts are custom-fitted coverings that provide exceptional insulating properties. They feature a sealed, layered design that can be drawn during the coldest parts of the night or the hottest parts of the day to conserve energy.
Solar shades are specifically designed to reduce solar heat gain while preserving your view. They reflect and absorb solar heat, preventing it from raising indoor temperatures.
