As our West Coast summer finally starts to heat up, did you know your window coverings play a key role in keeping you and your family cool indoors?

Windows play an important role in the overall energy efficiency of a house, and proper window treatments from Budget Blinds of the North Island can be a great way to keep you cool in the summer and warm through the winter. Blinds, shades, shutters and drapes all provide effective insulation to maintain comfortable indoor temperatures.

Budget Blinds, located in Courtenay, has a huge selection of custom window treatments to choose from, to keep your home comfortable and looking fabulous! Cellular shades, with their honeycomb-shaped pockets, are a very popular option. Their design helps to keep air from escaping or entering your home, protecting you from the elements.

Window film is also an effective way to deflect 99% of damaging UV rays, which will fade and damage flooring and furniture, while also keeping the heat out of your home.

Consider adding motorization and a timer to your new blinds, so that even while you’re away, your blinds will open and close at the best times to keep the heat in or out.
