Blinds vs. Curtains: Which One Can Lower Your Energy Bill?

Are you keeping energy cost low for the few months of hot weather left? A significant portion of a home’s energy is lost through windows. Here’s how switching up your window arrangements can save you big bucks.

Curtains, while stylish, may not provide the most energy efficient savings. The type and color of the curtain really impacts the total difference it will make. Thin, light color curtains will not block out as much sun and cold as thick, dark, curtains. When choosing curtains, selecting the darker, thermal-backed curtains will certainly make the difference to keep your house’s temperature well regulated without using the thermostat.

Blinds, on the other hand, are more efficient at blocking the heat or cold. They form a barrier to the temperature outside naturally. However, they can also still allow filtered light into the room if they are not completely opaque. This may be better option than dark, thermal-backed curtains if you are still looking for natural room light.
