How Energy Efficient Blinds Can Save You Money

June 8, 2021by Yeshourun0

Blinds are one of the most popular window treatments on the market today because of their flexibility and availability in a wide range of designs and styles. Urban Window Treatments offer a large selection of stunning blinds nyc. From wood blinds to vertical blinds, we carry an array of colors, stains, and finishes to choose from. However, our blinds do so much more than decorating your home—they provide privacy and light control, allow you to adjust your outside views, and block harmful UV rays. Most importantly, they provide insulation from external weather and can help keep your home’s temperature comfortable. 


While you may be tempted to fully blast your air conditioner during the hot summer months, this will rack up your cooling costs quite a bit. And in the winter months, you’ll have the same issue with heating costs. What if we could tell you that there’s a way to save money on energy bills by purchasing energy efficient blinds? Urban Window Treatments offer several blinds that are designed to provide natural insulation from outside temperatures so that you can save money and won’t have to solely rely on cooling and heating appliances to keep your home at a comfortable temperature.


Looking for blinds nyc that will help you save money all year round? Luckily, you’ve come to the right place. 


The Most Cost and Energy Efficient Blinds

The Energy Department states that 30% of the heating energy is lost through windows, while in the summer 76% of the sunlight converts into heat. They suggest that well-fitted window treatments can lower heating and cooling costs by reducing energy loss through windows. Energy efficient treatments are a great way to minimize energy consumption and help reduce your utility bills! 


Although it’s important to know that to save the most money on your energy bills, you’ll need to actively open and close your window treatments. You’ll need to do this at strategic times of the day, depending on the time of year. In the summer, you should keep your blinds closed during the afternoons to effectively block sunlight out, and open them in the evenings when it gets cooler. In the winter, it’s best to keep them closed—a sunny day being an exception.


Does it sound like too much work to open and close your blinds at different times of the day and year? No problem! Urban Window Treatments offers motorization for select blinds nyc and shades. By motorizing your blinds, you can open them easily with a single touch of a button whenever you need or you can set them to open and close at specific times of the day. Contact us to find out which blinds can be motorized. 


To help you keep your energy costs low all year, here are our top energy efficient blinds:


Wood Blinds

Just because you want to save money on your energy bills and contribute to our planet’s sustainability doesn’t mean that you have to compromise on style! Urban Window Treatments’ natural wood blinds provide considerable energy conservation when closed while blocking harmful UV rays and reducing solar heat gain. 


Blinds that are made from real wood give your home an elegant and classic look. Urban Window Treatments offers authentic wood blinds in varying slat sizes and in 87 distinct colors and finishes so that you custom match your furnishings to your new blinds! Each wood blind is coated with our exclusive TopShield™ finish to provide fade, moisture, scratch, and chemical resistance. 


Honeycomb Shades

Honeycomb shades get their name from a number of cells that are shaped like honeycombs. Two fabrics are folded back to back to create this shade. Honeycomb shades contain hexagonal pockets of air that are an essential tool for improving energy efficiency in a home. The pockets insulate against heat and cold and reduce the temperature transfer between the window and room by trapping the air within them. When choosing honeycomb shades for your home it’s important to keep in mind that the more cells and the bigger the pleats, the more effective the insulation.


On top of their excellent energy conservation, honeycomb shades also provide complete privacy. You can choose from a wide array of colors, opacities, patterns, and textures. We also carry single, double, and triple honeycomb shades. 


Motorized Blinds

Our innovative motorized blinds nyc offer outstanding benefits like energy conservation, convenience, and comfort. You have the option of controlling your blinds with a handheld remote, smartphone, or wall switch. For enhanced energy settings, you can set your blinds to close at certain times of the day when there is more sunlight, or set them to open when it’s cooler and there’s no direct sunlight shining into your home.


Urban Window Treatments’ motorized blinds are the perfect solution for making your life easier. Additionally, since motorized blinds have no dangling cords, they provide a safe environment for children and pets.
