During the hot summer months, keeping your home cool is a priority. Windows allow heat to come in from outside. During the winter months, this can be useful but during the summer, recording breaking heat pushing into your home can become a problem. Keeping this heat out can make your home more comfortable and save you money by reducing air conditioning use. Timber is an industry leader at saving energy at the window and engineers blinds designed to help with this problem. Get yourself some Timber blinds and you won’t have to worry.
In 1985, Timber invented their first energy efficient blind. It was called the Duette honeycomb shade. The latest energy efficient blind is called the Duette Architella honeycomb shade. These innovated products have honeycomb shaped designs which help insulate your home and control the temperature by allowing solar heat into your home in the winter and minimizing heat during the summer months. These spectacular blinds also help you save money by daylighting a room rather than harshly lighting with electricity.
Timber also suggests a few more tips to help decrease your overall spend and lower your home’s temperature. Make sure that your windows and doors are properly weather-stripped and insulated. Caulk around basements, storm windows, and attics because these are the places where the insulation of your home rest. Entrances into these areas should be insulated well so cool air doesn’t escape into it.
During the winter months open your blinds during the day and close them at night. This will allow heat to enter during the day, and keep the warmth in at night. During the summer months keep your blinds closed if you’re looking to keep the heat out. Whatever you need from your Timber blinds, they’re certainly the right choice.
