One of my clients took my advice on her window treatments, did the installation herself, and ended up turning off her air conditioning. Another lady said she was able to sit in her living room — with the drapes open –and enjoy her front garden for the first time EVER. With the right window treatments, you can enjoy your home during the summer heat. Without turning up the air conditioning.
Here are some of the columns I’ve written about this.
The Sun List. — a great graphic in this one about heat gain. You’ll be surprised.
And, just because you made to the end, if you give me your name and email, I’ll send you my Window Covering Decision-Making Guide. It’s got a lot of easy-to-read info on the most common types of window coverings on the market, what they do and what they don’t do. The process to get the guides is a tad ridiculous, I apologize. I am trying to find a new way, but please go through, I know the guide will be useful.
