Summer is here, which means you’re probably running your air conditioner a lot to keep your home nice and cool on the hottest days. But did you know that window treatments can help keep your home cool, too? Your window treatments may save you some money on your energy bill. We have many different summer window treatments that can filter light and keep the heat out of your home.
Motorized blinds are a great window treatment for rooms you want to keep dark or sunny at the touch of a button. They are one of the most modern window treatment options, and they are great for blocking and filtering sunlight. You can use the remote to control one set of blinds at a time if you want to let a specific amount of light into your room, or you can control all the blinds at once for privacy or maximum sunlight. Motorized blinds are also great for the summer because you can set timers for them while you are out of the house. You can set them to lower during the hottest part of the day to help block out the hot sun.
SOLAR shades are a great option for any room during the summer because they are made with a special material to block out UV rays. They can prevent glares on your TV or computer screens, and they can help you save on your energy bills. SOLAR shades also come in different darkening and light filtering options. You can choose to have your room pitch black or have some natural light come in while still protecting your furniture from fading and keeping your energy bill low.
If you want a more traditional window treatment, plantation shutters are great for filtering light. For a completely dark room and to block out the sun’s heat, you can adjust them to close and block out all sunlight. If you want to let light in, you can have the shutters completely open or you can adjust the slats to let in the amount of light you want.
