You may be worried about rising energy bills in the extreme seasons of the year (hottest parts of summer and the coldest parts of winter).
You may also be worried about bright morning light interrupting your precious slumber. And further, you may be concerned about the interior design and function of your home decor.
What if there was a solution for all three of your concerns?
Insulated curtains, or energy-saving curtains, may be an affordable and effect way for you to address multiple problems in your home. It’s always nice to find products that are multi-function, not only because they make your life easier, but also because they tend to save you money in the long run.
Insulated energy-saving curtains fit into this category.
Insulated curtains are curtains with special layers of high-functioning material, carefully designed to keep your home as energy-efficient as possible. The window-facing layer of the curtain usually features some type of reflective material, which faces the outside to repel the sun’s rays which are streaming into your home.
This means that during the hot and sunny summer months your insulated curtains will reflect and repel hot rays of the suns – bouncing them out of your home instead of allowing them to soak in through the glass.
Your home will stay naturally cooler, making life easier for your air conditioning unit and saving you money on your energy bills.
Insulated curtains also include an extra material layer to protect against sunlight or drafts seeping in/out of your windows. Have you ever stood directly in front of your windows during the cold months?
Even with the window closed and your heater blasting, you’ll still feel a little bit of cold leeching into your home through the glass – it’s natural! Insulated curtains absorb and block this cold sneaking into your home, as well as keeping the expensive heat safely on the living side of your curtains.
Can insulated curtains lower your energy bills? The answer is yes. Especially if you live in an area with extreme temperatures or hot or cold.
In Utah, we have both!
Our summers are hot and dry, while our winters can be bitterly cold with mountains of snow. Insulated curtains can help your Utah home defend against the outside temperatures while preserving your hard-fought indoor temperatures.
When your air-conditioning unit doesn’t have to work as hard, you use less energy (and spend less money!) working to regulate the temperature in your home.
Homeowners who switch to insulated curtains find their energy bills begin to drop – but their sleeping hours and home style just increases!
