It looks like winter has finally decided to make an appearance in Minnesota! So it’s a good thing Hirshfield’s worked with Minneapolis news station WCCO on a story about how the right window treatments can help save you money on winter energy bills – just in time for the blowing wind and dropping temps!
Watch WCCO’s story on Cutting Down on Winter Energy Costs.
During the winter, most of your home’s heat is lost through the windows because, let’s face it, windows are just large holes in the side of your home. But some energy efficient window treatments will help keep the cold out. Dawn, from Hirshfield’s Shop at Home, explains in the WCCO segment that putting an energy efficient window treatment on your window is like putting a blanket on it.
Be sure to look at the R-Value of the window treatment, which is a measure of a product’s ability to resist heat flow. The higher the R-value number, the more insulation it provides and the better it is at reducing heat loss. Certain Hunter Douglas window treatments available at Hirshfield’s can increase a window’s R-Value by 70%!
