How Blinds Help Energy Efficiency

Woman peering through open blindsWindows are possibly the biggest culprit when it comes to losing heat during the cold San Bernardino winters and chilly Inland Empire nights.

Tips for Preventing Heat Loss Through Windows

One of the easiest solutions to improving your your home’s energy efficiency is as simple as installing blinds, shades and drapes.

How utilizing blinds can help with energy efficiency during winter:
  • During the day - Open the blinds to let the sunlight warm your home. Passive solar is one of the best ways to heat your home - and it's free!
  • At night - Close your blinds or drapes to reduce cold drafts and heat loss. Remembering to close your blinds once the sun goes down can help prevent the warmth from escaping.
