Why Splurge On Window Coverings?

Table of Contents

When it’s time to choose or replace window blinds or coverings for your home or business, your options are virtually infinite, but when you can go to a big-box hardware store or order from the internet, why choose the personalized, custom, high-quality route? Well, most importantly, let’s do away with the first inherent misconception that window blinds, shutters, and shades from a local window treatment company with over thirty years of design and installation experience are more expensive than internet or corporate stores. Our prices are competitive with, if not lower than those so-called bargain sources, but you also get the personalized service, professional advice, knowledgeable guidance, and flawless installation that has made Desert Window Wear Southern Arizona’s top provider of plantation shutters, shades, window blinds, and window treatments.

Materials Matter

Now that the costliness myth has been busted let’s talk quality. Like virtually every physical product, price is often dictated by the quality and availability of the materials used in the product’s construction. With shades, blinds, and shutters, this is also true, so it makes sense that if you want your window coverings to do more than the necessities of privacy and light diffusion, the price tag will inevitably be higher.

Energy Efficiency Pays

There’s more than one way to make your home more energy efficient with window blinds, shades, or shutters. Beyond the simple fact that we live in the Sonoran Desert and any sort of shade is beneficial in shielding interiors from the Arizona sun, nearly 50% of cooled air escapes your home, and windows are the chief source of that unwanted exit. It makes good sense to add layers of insulation to window areas to prevent that loss of processed air which places more stress on your cooling system to continuously replace it and skyrockets your power bill.

You don’t have to spend a fortune, but smartly and selectively, splurging on window coverings can help make your home more energy-efficient and help you save money on energy bills for years to come, and Desert Window Wear is the energy-efficient window covering authority in the greater Tucson area.

Insulation Saves

It doesn’t hurt that the newest, trendiest, and most fashionable offerings in window coverings are also the ones adding energy efficiency to their functionality repertoire. Honeycomb and cellular shades are stylistically somewhere between the straight, industrial lines of blinds and the light diffusion properties and textural feel of fabric shades, shears, or curtains, but with far superior insulation powers. Honeycomb and cellular shades are made up of a series of cells that form little honeycomb-shaped pockets that help trap air around your windows, creating an insulation layer. This insulation helps keep your home’s rooms cool at the peak of summer and warm on the chilliest desert nights. Cellular shades add a sleek but smooth, minimal look to any room and are also the most energy-efficient window covering option you can choose.

Smart Features Are A Smart Choice

With the growing popularity and population of smart homes, pairing motorized window blinds or shades with your smart home system can give you ultimate control of the light, and the accompanying heat and stress on your cooling system that it creates, entering your home at any time of the day, from any location. Smart blinds work with Amazon Alexa, Google Home, Siri, and Apple Home Kit and can be controlled from your smartphone, a remote, or a tablet, so if you forget to close the blinds on a cloudy morning that clears by noon, you can lower your blinds with your smartphone and continue your day knowing your HVAC system won’t have to work any harder and cost you any more money because you forgot that one detail. Energy efficiency is all about control, and when it comes to window treatments and window coverings, smart home integrated motorization offers the peak of control and convenience.
