Let in Light, Keep Out the Heat
Here comes the sun... do do do do!
Spring has sprung and summer is right around the corner. It is that time of year when homeowners everywhere stop thinking about heating and instead switch their focus to cooling. So you have your air conditioner inspected and serviced, you make sure you have enough attic insulation, you seal your duct work, you caulk your windows and add weather stripping to your doors. Every aspect of your home impacts energy efficiency. One major area to pay attention to is your windows.
When your blinds or shades are open, sunlight shines through the windows, heating your home. This is known as solar heat gain: the increase in temperature in a room as the result of solar radiation. While this is beneficial during cooler months, it can greatly reduce the efficiency of your air conditioner during the summer. So what do you do? You can obviously close your blinds and shades to reduce solar heat gain, but this also blocks your view. Fortunately, Next Day Blinds has the answer.
We established Next Day Blinds with one simple idea: to bring you premium-quality, fully custom window coverings to you in days instead of weeks or months—at competitive, factory-direct prices. We have several shades available that help maximize light while keeping the heat at bay.
- Honeycomb Shades: Premium quality honeycomb shades illuminate your home with filtered sunlight, while providing privacy and exceptional energy efficiency.
- Solar Basics 5% Roller Shades: These shades protect your room from the harsh glare of the sun, while still allowing you to enjoy the view through your windows.
- Solar Sheers 5% Roller Shades: This sleek shade acts as a screen that allows muted light with a view of the outside.
- Solar Screens 1% Roller Shades: With their 1% openness factor, these shades block more light and provide more privacy than our Solar Sheers and Solar Basics.
