Window Treatments That Can Provide Insulation
Cellular shades are effective insulators. They’re crafted with cells that can block out sunlight and keep a house from getting too hot. If you install cellular shades, you will be able to limit the amount you rely on the air conditioner and keep your utility bills reasonable.
Knox Blinds also sells roller shades, which can block out sunlight. They can help you keep your air conditioning costs down, reduce glare, and protect your furniture, artwork, and flooring from the harmful effects of the sun’s UV rays.
Roman shades are pleated and batten and can be either folded or smooth on the surface. They are made of an insulating material that can help you control your summer utility costs.
Blinds are another effective way to block out sunlight in the summer. They have slats in a variety of sizes. You can make a choice based on the size of the windows in your home.
