    Save Money Year Round With Window Coverings

    You might not realize it—most people don’t—but there are certain places in your home where your money essentially just … disappears. Those places are your windows. According to the U.S. Department of energy, 25 percent of your utility costs could be going right out the window. Luckily, there’s a simple solution that will not just save you money, but also add value to your home: automated window coverings.

    What are automated window coverings?

    Automated window coverings are blinds, shades, curtains, etc. that are operated by motors and can be programmed to open and close at strategic times or by the push of a button. Using automated window coverings, you can shut out that strong afternoon sunlight that makes it impossible to keep your home cool, and you can do it whether you’re home or not. In the winter, these window coverings you can prevent the heat you’re paying so dearly for from slipping out your windows as well.

    Designing with light

    While many kinds of blinds and curtains can help keep some heat in and light out, thermal window coverings are the most effective. These types of coverings come in a range of textures and styles, allowing you to create a design that embraces light and uses it to its best advantage.

    Let the sun shine in

    If you’ve ever bought or sold a home, you’ve no doubt seen this phrase in real estate listings: “abundant natural light.” Light makes the interior of your home inviting, and it allows you to take advantage of the scenery outside your home. With automated window coverings, you can embrace the full advantages of light without accepting the high utility bills that come along with a house filled with windows.
