Aside from accessorizing your home in style, window coverings can reduce your utility costs; and while they help to keep your comfortable, air conditioned air in and the sweltering heat and humidity outside (not to mention helping to keep your home nice and toasty when it is chilly out there), window coverings may also actually help improve the air quality within your house.
Window treatments, including closed shutters, blinds, shades, drapes and curtains, can provide an added layer of insulation sealing air leaks around your windows which could otherwise welcome pesky dust particles and unwanted pollens inside your home.
A large percentage of a home’s heat is lost through windows and the sunlight that shines through windows can create heat, but what is even more alarming are the allergens and air pollution that we could be breathing inside our homes if outside air happens to leak past our windows.
