Be Close to Nature by Choosing Earth Friendly Green Window Treatments
Let’s face it, green is big right now. Whether it’s recycled, up cycled, sustainable or organic, it’s become easier and easier to take care of our planet while shopping. When it comes to choosing blinds in and near Los Angeles residents have some awesome options available for earth friendly window treatments including not only those made from environmentally friendly materials, but that can also save up to 70% of cooling costs and 25% of heating costs, according to the Department of Energy. Let’s take a look at what options are available, how they help the earth and what to take into account when considering them.
Sustainable Sourced Blinds
Did you know that you can get blinds made from sustainable harvested hardwoods or recycled plastics? We have a huge selection of blinds Ventura residents can select from! Whether your preferred look is down to earth wood tones, stunning modern looks or somewhere in the middle, we have the window blinds that Los Angeles residents want!
Natural Material Woven Shades
Another possible option includes shades that are woven from fast-growing plants such as jute, grass and bamboo. Because of these materials’s growth rate, they are replenished in the environment in a very short amount of time.
Cellular shades are similar to blinds in that they let some light pass through, but they actually create a tube of air across the width of the shade, providing extra insulation to your window shades. They’ve been proven over the years to save you as much as 20% on your heating and cooling bills.
Energy Efficient Green Window Treatments
Insulated curtains don’t just keep the cold out, they also keep it in! During the hot summers we get in the Los Angeles area, energy efficient window treatments help keep the air conditioning from working too hard while keeping your home comfortable and your energy bill low.
Motorized or Automated Window Features
Not only can you set up a home automation system that will close the curtains or blinds over your western and southern windows when the heat is on, you can even program them to activate remotely while you’re on vacation, helping to keep thieves guessing whether someone is at home.
Our many options will help keep your home earth friendly, comfortable and fashionable, just like we’ve been doing since 1975.
