Improving energy efficiency in your home with: Finecraft custom blinds, shades, and shutters
Bare windows are the leading cause of your home losing heating and cooling energy. Finecraft® window blinds are the absolute best in increasing your home’s energy efficiency and maintaining a comfortable living space. It’s estimated that without energy efficient window blinds, a home can lose between 30% and 40% of heating and cooling energy through its windows.
Finecraft® window blinds are the premier choice to help with your home’s energy efficiency. Finecraft® blinds provide insulation, allow you to control of the amount of heat coming into your home and the amount of cool air leaving your home in the warmer months.
In winter, or if you live in a cool climate, window blinds help insulate the window, preventing heat from escaping.
Summer (so your AC doesn't have to work as hard):
What Finecraft® recommends
Finecraft® Honeycomb shades are the most insulating interior shades available anywhere.
Roller and solar shades
Finecraft® roller and solar shades reduce heat gain in a room.
STOPPING the heat before it gets through your windows is the best way to keep your home cool with their exterior shades.
Finecraft® interior shutters, whether wood or composite, the natural insulating properties of wood and composite along with the thick materials trap unwanted air between the glass and the covering, which helps insulate the room inside and reduce energy costs.
By adding a mid-rail (or sometimes referred to as a divider rail) to your shutters you can close the louvres of one portion to block out sun and keep the other portion open to allow in light.
To capitalize on the energy efficiency you get from shades, you need to raise and lower them as necessary, depending on the time of day and time of year.
But what if you’re not home or simply busy?
That’s where motorized SMART shades can really be a HUGE energy saver. With the Finecraft® SMART HUB automation, you can schedule your window treatments to move according to schedules you set. That way, they’ll be in the best positions to block heat loss when it’s cold or keep out harsh sunrays in the summer.
