Say Goodbye to Energy Loss

The weather outside is constantly changing, and with it, the cost of your energy bills. For a good portion of the year, just to feel comfortable inside our homes we need to blast the AC. However, during colder months, the temperature inside must be turned up. It’s a never-ending cycle each year. Try cutting back on the cost by adding the correct window treatments and avoiding energy loss.  

The Real Culprit

It might be hard to grasp, especially if you have a newer home, but most of the time, the real culprit of energy loss is your windows. So much so that you could end up losing up to 40% of your home’s energy through the windows. If it seems like your windows are working against you, it’s because they likely are. When winter temperatures force us to turn up the heat to stay warm inside, our windows are bringing the temperature down.

While we can all appreciate a great view, it shouldn’t come at the cost of increased energy usage. If not dressed with the proper window treatments, your windows could be a huge reason your electric bills are so high. And, while energy loss could cost you a small fortune, it’s not the only issue caused by improper window treatments. Let’s take a closer look… 


The Cost of Energy Loss

What’s your favorite indoor activity? Maybe it’s spending time with your family playing board games, or getting all snuggled up to catch up on some shows or read a book. Whatever it is, it can all be easily ruined by incorrect window treatments. The draft in your house, the lack of privacy from your neighbors, the need for blankets or sweaters as the sun goes down, or the frustrating glare are all issues caused by your windows.
