Brrrr…it’s mid-December, and we are already looking forward to warmer spring temperatures. While our weather this year has not gotten as cold and snowy as years past, the chilly temps have us dreaming about bundling up and flying south for the winter! How is the atmosphere in your home? We have amazing solutions so you can relax in the warmth and comfort of your home with energy efficient window coverings.


Would new windows make it warmer?

Energy Efficient Window CoveringsChances are…No. For the same reason that it is always a good idea to use caution with a glass full of hot liquid, new windows will not help as much as you would hope. Why? Glass is an amazing conductor. That means that even new windows will still feel cold on the inside of your home. The air that fills your home is continually moving, and every time it brushes up against your windows, the temperature of that air is lowered, creating a draft. With energy efficient window coverings, like the beautiful Duette Honeycomb Shades seen here, a layer of cell within cell structural insulation provides the protection you need to keep the air in your home at a comfortable temperature. And the designer appeal they offer will transform the look of your home!
