Reflecting & Controlling Heat with Hunter Douglas Window Coverings

insulating window shades for controlling heat in San Antonio
It’s important to know how to manage the temperatures when living in the San Antonio area. While we have gorgeous weather throughout the year, there are definitely some months that hit us hard. The chill of the January winter makes you want to stay inside, but so does the excessive heat of August. We have window coverings that will help with controlling heat in your San Antonio home.

Heat Is Attracted to Cold

The molecules of air just can’t stay away from each other. That’s why, if there is no barrier between the hot outside air and the cool AC in your home, the hot air will influence the cool air to warm up. In cooler months, the same thing happens. Your body comfort notices the change in temperature. The problem with windows is that they don’t really help with controlling heat–even if they claim to be energy efficient. You’ll still have some of that transfer happening.

Reflecting & Controlling Heat: How to Achieve

Add an insulated barrier between the interior and exterior of your home. With window shades, the fabrics reflect levels of sunshine and heat outwards, keeping your interiors comfortable. Take it one step further with energy efficient window treatments. Pockets in the fabric trap the air at the window. You’ll be controlling heat from entering in the summer months and leaving in the winter.
