Energy Saving Shades = Climate Controlled!

The changing seasons in Minnesota let us experience such a range of temperatures–some all in the same week! It can be challenging to keep our homes warm in the winter, yet cool in the summer. Not only is your comfort impacted by the changing temperatures, but your energy bills fluctuate wildly as well. There are ways to take control of your home atmosphere with energy saving shades. Read on to find out more…

See the Energy Loss…

Technology can help us actually “see” energy loss occurring inside our homes. The greens, blues and purples show areas that are well insulated while the reds show areas of outside air freely moving in and out of the structure.

In a side-by-side comparison, the picture below demonstrates how effective energy saving shades are at reducing any energy transfer. The red window has been left uncovered and is experiencing air leakage. The green window has been covered with energy saving shades. The shades help to keep the outside and inside air where it belongs–creating a more comfortable home environment.

Feel the Energy Loss….

You have seen how easily air transfers when a structure is not well insulated. But, how does energy loss feel? Energy flowing freely in your home can feel drafty in winter and uncomfortably hot in summer. If you are living without window coverings, or your window coverings are not doing what they should, we have solutions for you!
