Going Green With the Right Window Treatments

Ken CaldwellEl Paso Tx, Window Treatments

Do you know how much energy the average household uses on a monthly basis? Well, the average American uses about 911 kilowatt hours a month. This costs them about $114 a month. Kilowatt hours are used to measure units of energy, so they can illustrate just how much energy a month one might use. The state of Texas uses about 1,158 kilowatt hours a month, well above average. You may be thinking this is because Texas is so huge and is home to many metropolitan areas that use a lot of energy each month. While this is true, many parts of Texas are barren, with little to no energy being used. Because of this, it’s important to consider how mindful we are with our energy consumption. One way to do so is to have window treatments installed on our windows.

How Can Window Treatments Help?

You may be wondering how a piece of motorized fabrics that rolls over your windows can help you give back to the environment by saving energy. Well, motorized window treatments help by:

  • Giving you control over the lighting in your home, meaning you can use the lighting in your home less than you normally would, saving electricity.
  • Preventing excess hot air from entering your home in the summer and excess warm air from escaping your home in the winter.
  • Cooling your home naturally by allowing less sunlight through.
  • Absorbing UV rays.

As you can see, window treatments contribute a lot to helping you save energy. What’s great about window treatments is they help you use less electricity and give you more control over the temperature in the room, so you can use your heater less in the winter and your air conditioner less in the summer.
