Although fall has just begun, temperatures are falling fast. There’s no time like the present to look even further ahead to winter. Although it may not be the most pleasant of thoughts, the reality is that the ground will soon freeze and you’ll be able to see your breath when you’re out in the open air. When we’re indoors, we rely heavily on our heating system to make our home comfortable. Unfortunately, that can have some negative consequences, like sky-high energy bills and a deviation from our dedication to a green lifestyle. However, having automated window blinds may help solve some of those issues by supporting your HVAC system. Here’s how.
Mainly, it’s important to note that motorized blinds will keep the heat inside. If you want to make your home more comfortable and save some money, you need to rely on furnishings to keep the heat indoors. Draperies alone can actually reduce room heat loss by 10% during the wintertime, as heat tends to escape through those windows. But if you forget to shut the blinds at the optimal time of day, you won’t be able to retain the heat or save energy in the process.
Automated window blinds make that process a cinch. You can program them to adjust at specific times of the day to ensure the heat stays in when you need it most. Since wintertime brings about shorter daylight hours, this feature comes in extremely handy. By utilizing the features of your motorized window blinds, you can set it and forget it — and your heating system won’t have to work nearly as hard. Ultimately, that means you’ll end up saving money each month and your HVAC system will last longer (another source of savings for the long term).
When you use automated window blinds, you won’t have to consciously consider how you’re going to save money every month. Instead, you can rely on these automatic adjustments to save you time, money, and energy. In the warmer months, these same features can ensure you don’t spend too much on your air conditioning bills. But this winter, you can keep your home warm and cozy while reducing your reliance on your home heating system.

Let’s take a closer look about how adding motorization to your window treatments can make you healthier. [Read more…]
