Go Green With Drapes 2NV!
to the UTC (Department of Utilities and Transportation
Commission), adding Draperies to your home can help lower your
energy bill. This results in less energy being wasted and
provides for lower utilities costs. Drapes can add an
extra layer of insulation. Blinds also can insulate, but they
arenít as effective. Keep your drapes closed at night and on
sunny days, open up the drapes and blinds to let in the sunís
free heat, especially on the south side of your house.
Draperies are the
quintessential and classic way to decorate your windows thereby
adding elegance and flair to all decors. But, you now have to
think about more than just the look of your window treatments.
Energy efficiency is a huge issue in todayís energy conscious
times. Even if global warming doesnít scare you, keeping the
cost of utilities down is every householdís challenge. Adding
drapes or curtains is a practical way to help your home stay
cool in the summer and warm in the winter. Drapes and curtains
can significantly lower your energy bills while using fewer of
the earths precious resources.
Pacific Gas & Electric states that approximately 16% of all heat
in a room escapes through windows. Keeping your drapes or
curtains closed during the day also keeps out unwanted heat and
sunlight that can fade carpeting and furniture. Opening drapes
or curtains on cold days lets extra solar heat into the room and
then by closing them at night you can retain warmth. If you want
your drapes/curtains to accomplish both style and efficiency,
use a thicker fabric and insulate the drapes with lining. In
addition, lined drapes will reduce and suppress outside noise.
They also last 10-15 years longer than unlined drapes !
Lined drapes or curtains offer more than just thermal
efficiency. Lined drapes or curtains hang better for graceful
full folds. Pleats and folds hang better with the added weight
an insulated lining gives them. The luxurious effect on pleating
cannot be matched without lining regardless of the drapery
