If it seems as though summer temperatures seem to be abnormally hot this year nearly everywhere, it is because they are. This means that your home is also hotter and if you have air conditioning, it is working overtime. Of course, this amounts to increased energy usage and higher bills. It may be hard to believe that something as simple as window coverings could make such a monumental difference, but they can!
How Window Coverings Help
First, it is important to understand that not all window coverings are going to help keep your home cooler and your energy bill lower. They need to be quality and they must fit properly. What good are shutters if they are an inch too small and the light blasts through on the sides anyway?
It also does not hurt to make sure that the covers you choose are designed to be energy efficient and block out the most light.
