Drapery & Roman Shades
The energy efficiency of curtains and drapes depends on a number of factors, including the tightness of the fabric weave and the color. Studies show that medium-colored drapes with lining can reduce heat transfer by up to 33%. The insulating value of drapes can vary widely depending on the color and type of fabric that’s selected. The Department of Energy cites studies that show some medium-colored drapes can cut heat loss during the winter by 10% or more and will reduce heat gain by about 33% during the warm months. It’s important to be strategic about using curtains for heat control. For example, in the wintertime, you should keep all drapes closed at night to prevent indoor heat from escaping. Moreover, all drapes should be hung as close to the window as possible.
If you really want to maximize the insulating benefits of their window treatments, there’s no better option than motorized blinds and shades. Today’s options include high-tech automation systems that will allow you to program your window shades to rise and fall at certain times of the day. This innovation allows your shades to help maintain indoor temperature control by blocking solar heat during the warm afternoon hours.
With PowerView® Automation, you can conveniently raise and lower your shades with a button press, tap on a mobile device, or even with your voice. Schedule PowerView shades to move automatically, at certain times of the day, to the exact position you desire. Being able to schedule your shades to move automatically means they’ll be in the best positions to block heat loss when the weather’s cold or keep out harsh rays when it’s hot.
