Reno is abuzz with summer activity! Slap on some sunscreen, throw on your favorite pair of shades, and you are set for being on the water, spending time at festivals, biking – whatever it is that you love in the great outdoors. You protect yourself from the intense summer sun and heat, but do you protect your home and your budget? Here are three great window covering solutions from our team at Horizon Window Fashions that will save your home from the summer heat.
Protect with PowerView
While you don’t want to slather your home in sunscreen, we know that you do want to protect your beloved furnishings from UV damage. Hunter Douglas has made this effortless with a revolutionary innovation in motorized window shades: PowerView. With the touch of a button, you can save just the right settings for your home’s shades and schedule them to occur automatically. Plus, with the PowerView App, you can control your window shades even when you aren’t home. Relish the benefits of automatically having the perfect amount of light and privacy all while you protect your furnishings and save your home from the summer heat with PowerView.
Day after day as the temperature hits 90 degrees, your air conditioner is undoubtedly working overtime—and costing you a lot of money. Or, worse yet, you may be choosing to not run your air all the time—which means you are living in uncomfortable temperatures both inside and out. If this is you, we have good news. You don’t have to sacrifice comfort to save money. The right kind of window coverings are the solution you need. Duette shades are a favored option to save your home from the summer heat. They insulate at the window to keep your home a comfortable temperature—no matter the weather outside—which gives your AC a break and you some extra cash in your pocket.
Love the Light
While the summer sun is gorgeous, gazing at it often hurts your eyes. How often do you find yourself reaching for your sunglasses as you drive around the busy streets of Reno? Do you ever reach for them at home? You might not realize how much the summer sun is affecting the atmosphere of your home. Windows that face east and west let in direct sunlight and heat all day. Ones that face north and south can produce blinding glare. Finding the perfect shades for your windows is just as important as finding your own favorite pair! We can help you choose window covering solutions, like top-down bottom-up window shades, that diffuse glare and allow you to control how much and where light comes into your home. Save your home from the summer heat and give it the look and feel you want.

Let our team help you find window covering solutions that will save your home from the summer heat and put extra spending cash in your wallet.
