According to the Energy Information Administration, about 48% of energy consumption in U.S. homes comes from heating and cooling. Budget Blinds—the largest window coverings franchise in North America—is now offering an array of window treatment solutions to help conserve energy as summertime approaches.
A popular window covering solution is Budget Blinds’ line of Signature Series® cellular shades, also commonly referred to as honeycomb shades. These window coverings are built with small honeycomb-shaped pockets or “cells” designed to keep air from either entering or escaping your home. They are also built using thick cellular fabrics that provide an insulating layer to help reduce solar heat gain. As a result, your home will be cooler in the summer which can lead to savings on your energy bill. The U.S. Department of Energy recommends installing window shades to reflect heat away from the home.
Another energy-saving option available to homeowners is exterior solar screens from Budget Blinds. According to the U.S. Department of Energy, window screens can diffuse solar radiation, reducing heat gain in the summer. Exterior solar screens are an affordable solution to covering your windows; and when placed on windows throughout the home, can lower interior temperatures and reduce the need for air conditioning. In addition, exterior solar screens protect your furnishings from harmful UV rays, act as a bug screen, will not rust or corrode, and provide good outward visibility.
“We work diligently to help our clients beautify their homes while increasing overall value by producing window coverings that can save them money,” said Tracy Christman, Vice President of Vendor Alliance at Budget Blinds. “There are a variety of window coverings that offer benefits that go beyond simply furnishing your windows; they also reduce energy costs to help create a greener home.”
The U.S. Department of Energy states that window treatments can reduce energy use in your home, and are less expensive than purchasing new, energy-efficient windows. To help encourage energy conservation this summer, Budget Blinds has launched the Summer Sale Event which runs through August 3rd, 2014. The Summer Sale Event offers customers 20% off Signature Series window treatments plus an additional 15% off Signature Series exterior solar screens.
