Fall is a great time of the year to change your window treatments. Leaves are changing colors, weather becomes cooler and it’s very common for people to leave their windows open to enjoy the beautiful cool breeze.
Before you know it, fall turns into winter and winter turns into the holidays, so keep that in mind when thinking about changing your window treatments. If you’re always looking for ways to change the look and feel of your home, there are plenty of window shade options to choose from. Since fall weather is cool, you might want to start thinking about the winter months and thermal insulation to keep the heat in and the cold air out.
Fall is a great time to start winterizing your home. Start thoroughly investigating your windows to look for any basic repairs or air sealing that needs to be done. If you’ve noticed a draft coming through the windows, now is time to start thinking about fixing that. Seal leaks with caulk or foam and even using heat-shrinking plastic can help.
After winterizing your home, thinking about your window coverings. Winter window treatments are a great way to save on energy costs. By hanging window treatments such as thermal drapes or window quilts, you can save energy and even lower your heating bill. Because glass doesn’t slow the transfer of heat, the best option is insulated window treatments.
If you’re thinking about draperies or thermal window coverings, also consider motorized options or systems to install for easy opening and closing. Drapery systems can be installed in any home, on any window and the type of shades are up to you. There are tons of fabric choices, thermal and non-thermal to keep your home fresh!
