Energy Efficient Window Treatments

As the temps start dropping we at ASAP like to remind our clients window treatments are a very important part of conserving heat. Without energy-efficient window coverings, as much as 50% of a home's heating and cooling can be lost though the windows. 

In the wintery months your home heating escapes through the windows. With window treatments that provide insulation you can reduce energy costs while maintaining warmth. The best product to achieve this is a cellular shade. The term cell describes the pocket on the honeycomb shade. Because inert air is a poor conductor of heat, a honeycomb shade creates an effective temperature transfer barrier between the window and the room.
