If you’re like me, you want to drop your electric bill as much as possible. During the hot summer months, the air conditioner tends to run all the time, especially if temperatures really climb. This always translates into very high electric bills. But what can you do? Sure, fans can help a lot, but they can’t do it all. Even turning the thermostat up a few degrees may not help that much. Other than sweating it out, how can you work to cut down the amount of electricity used while still keeping your home cool?
One thing you can do is add insulated curtains to your home. These curtains look no different from regular curtains. In fact, some of them look much better! The secret, though, is in the backing and interior material. These fashionable curtains hide a functional side—they are actually made from insulated material that blocks out a great about of heat. While it may not seem like it, our homes actually absorb a good amount of heat through windows. The sunlight that looks so great streaming in through the windows heats up our homes, and blocking out these rays can save a lot.
These insulated tab-top curtain panels are made from a heavy duty suede material that is able to block out both the heat and keep cold drafts from coming into your home during the winter. This will help keep your heating costs down in the winter. In addition to this, the curtains will block out nearly all sunlight, making them ideal for those who work at night and sleep during the day. You’ll no longer be woken up by the bright morning sun on weekends, either! Many of these types of curtains reduce noise, too, which is also ideal for daytime sleepers.
