Everyone tries to combine style and comfort when they are decorating a room. When you can incorporate beauty, while at the same time saving money on your energy costs, it is a huge bonus.
Sliding panels are great at lowering your utility bill because they are:
- Custom made. Since blinds with sliding panels are made to fit the exact dimensions of your windows, there are never extra spaces around the edges to let cold air seep indoors during the winter or to allow your cooler, air-conditioned air escape in the summer. You will never have to pay to heat or cool the outside again. Owners of older homes with irregular-sized or ill-fitting windows will immediately notice a difference in their comfort level when they choose sliding panels over more traditional window treatments.
- Extra insulated. The tight fit of this type of window treatment creates a blanket of air which becomes trapped between the blinds and the window. This air acts as a barrier between the harsh outdoor temperature and your comfortable room. During the colder months, the trapped air helps to maintain a more pleasant indoor temperature by heating up throughout the day, and then gently releasing the heat during night.
- Available in a wide selection of styles and fabrics. It is easy to choose the right fit for your home. You can also choose specialized sliding panels to fit your lifestyle. Do you want the benefits of having sliding panel shades, but don’t want to give up your stunning view? Translucent solar shades offer an outdoor view, but still give you the same energy savings and UV protection as regular shades. Night shift workers love sliding panels with blackout fabric.
