Summer is right around the corner, which means warmer weather and longer days. But it also means your energy bill is about to go up as you turn up your air conditioner. While you might be enjoying the longer days and having more natural light inside your home, letting sunlight in is actually contributing to heating up your house when you’re trying to cool it down. At Blinds Bros., we have a selection of energy efficient blinds that can block out the heat to save you up to 15 percent on your energy bills while still letting you enjoy the sunlight.
Our Energy Efficient Blinds
Our top three most energy efficient blinds are motorized, SOLAR shades, and cellular shades, and each have a different look so we can help you find the perfect one for your home. With motorized blinds, you have complete control over the light coming through the windows – even when you’re not at home. You can use the remote to set timers for when the blinds should be raised and lowered. If you’re not at home in the afternoon, you can set the blinds to close during the summer to protect your home during the hottest part of the day, and if you’re gone on your summer vacation, you can set timers to raise and lower the blinds to give the impression someone is home.
SOLAR shades are designed to block out harmful UV rays. They block out the heat in the summer and also reduce glares on screens, which can help cool your house as well. Cellular shades are another great energy-efficient option because they’re easy to place exactly where you need to block out the strongest sun rays while still letting some sunlight in. Their “honeycomb” or “cellular” shape also traps the warm air around your windows to really keep the heat out.
At Blinds Bros., we offer many different light filtering and darkening options, and we can help you choose the perfect one for your home. If you’re ready to save on your energy bills this summer, contact Blinds Bros. today for your free in home consultation.
