Insulating Your Home with Window Coverings

Window Coverings_Ambiance Window CoveringsAt Ambiance Window Coverings, our designers specialize in giving you the perfect window covering to match your individual style, but we also have a mind for practical solutions. With the worst of winter coming on, Omaha families are trying to close up all those leaks and drafts to stay toasty and save money on heating their homes. If you have drafty windows, you may think that the only solution is replacing them with new ones, and that can cost a small fortune !

While some solutions may be obvious (putting more insulation up in the attic, say), one simple way to cut down on your energy bill that you may not have thought of is investing in new window coverings. Hunter Douglas offers several window coverings to help you protect against losing heat in your home during the frigid cold. Since approximately one-third of your home’s heat loss occurs through windows and doors, insulating your windows with new coverings can actually save you bundles down the road while providing your home with the perfect look.

Insulate by Layering

In addition to creating a luxurious and stylish look for your home, layering window coverings helps insulate your windows better than individual coverings can. By combining shades with drapes, valances and cornices, you can greatly reduce heat loss (by as much as 25 percent!) at the window, and with so many different color, pattern, and fabric combinations available from Ambiance Window Coverings, you don’t have to choose between practicality and style.

Insulate with Honeycomb Shades

As a Hunter Douglas Showcase Dealer, Ambiance Window Coverings is excited to offer an exclusive and revolutionary window covering that’s perfect for those environmentally conscious consumers who also have an eye for striking design. Our lead designer, Donna Schrader, can help you determine which solution would be the best fit for your home, such as the Hunter Douglas honeycomb shades. This window covering option provides an excellent insulation with a proprietary “honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb” design, creating three heat-trapping, cold-blocking air pockets which work to reduce heat loss at the window by 40 percent.
