Prime Window Coverings services Mississauga and the Greater Toronto Area, so we know exactly what a harsh, cold winter can do to your home’s ability to maintain warmth. With temperatures reaching record lows, we understand exactly what most property owners face when they take a look at their heating bills. This winter, consider the benefits of seeing lower bills, and saving all year round by investing in… no, not a new furnace, but better insulation for your home in the form of window treatments. That’s right! You can save money with something as simple as a new set of treatments intended to keep the warm air in! Keep reading, and we’ll tell you how.
How Can Window Treatments Insulate My Home?
Believe it or not, the number one cause of heat loss is not your walls, your roof, or anything similar. Up to 50% of all energy and heat leakage is through your property’s windows. Your windows can cause warm air to leak out during those harsh winter months, and vice versa in the summer, resulting in unpleasant living circumstances and excess electric and heating bills!
The solution is far simpler than replacing your windows with newer, more energy efficient models. Prime Window Coverings can help you dress your windows before winter begins in earnest, and help you save by making your windows winter-proof with the addition of these very popular products:
These shades are among the best on the market, especially in North America, when it comes to better insulating your windows. Cellular shades have honeycomb like pockets within, which trap air inside and provide an excellent, thick layer of insulation between your window and your home. The energy efficacy of most windows can be doubled with this very simple addition. With a myriad of colours and styles available, cellular shades are among the most stylish and versatile window treatments available on the market and offer unparalleled insultation. We install cellular shades in Mississauga and the rest of the GTA.
Curtains and Drapes:
The simplest and most timeless of treatments are also among the better ways to insulate your home. While many curtains and drapes are too thin to offer any real measurable benefits to your home’s energy efficiency, custom tailored materials can be used to create an excellent effect. Fabrics which are tightly woven and heavyweight such as suede or velvet can be used to prevent heat loss within your home. Similarly, you can also consider specially made insulated curtains, which offer a four-layer fabric with a high-density foam layer at the core to trap air and save you big bucks this winter. We install custom drapes Mississauga, Oakville and the beyond. Ask us for a free consultation.
The classic appeal of Roman Blinds is coupled with their fabric structure. As Roman Blinds are fabric based, they are capable of insulation like that offered by curtains. As with curtains, you can also opt to purchase Roman Blinds made with thermal fabric, which is a far better choice for homes which require better insulation during these harsh Canadian winters.
Shades, Blinds and Rollers:
Many different types of shades and blinds can be outfitted with special, reflective sides; one to reflect heat, and one to absorb. These can be reversed as needed during warm and cold times of the year and are a versatile option for those who prefer the conventional kinds of window treatments. Shutters are also fairly effective in preventing energy loss, as they can be sealed snugly against the window, and prevent air leakage from one side to the other, while similarly providing protection against warmth in the summer months.
Of course, merely buying any of the above window treatments will not ensure that your home is energy efficient. Proper fitting with your windows, proper selection for your window type, and proper installation are all relevant to creating the best possible insulation in a climate as volatile and unpredictable as Canada. Prime Window Coverings employs a team of experts who can help you choose the best possible window treatment for your space, and install it correctly, ensuring a snug fit against your windows to maximize the energy savings offered.
