A Stylish Way to Prevent Energy Loss

Do you own a home? If so, you’ve probably noticed that the colder months outside can bring some unwanted issues in through the windows of your home. And, on the flip side, your AC may be working a bit too hard in the heat of the summer. If this sounds like your home, we have the solutions for energy loss, starting with window treatments!


Windows are the Main Cause

Up to 40% of energy could be sneaking out your windows. Plus, the strong rays in the summer can heat your home to an exhaustive temperature, leaving you feeling sluggish. The outside temperature often affects the interior temperatures, leaving it feeling less comfortable than desired. Your windows are the biggest culprit when it comes to energy loss, so why not dress them to add both style and function?

There are window treatments that will allow you to preserve this stunning view, but leave the high energy bills–from the heat of summer or the chill of winter–behind. 


Other Issues Stem from Energy Loss

Energy loss doesn’t only increase your utility bills. This year especially, since we’re all spending more time than ever at home, you may have noticed the discomfort affecting your lifestyle within your home. Do these phrases sound familiar?

  • Who turned the heat on again?
  • Can’t you just put on a sweater?
  • Brrr…Does it feel cold in here?
  • Why is every light on in the middle of the day?
  • Do you have to be in here? I have work to get done.
  • I can’t sleep. I’m freezing.
