Running and maintaining a hotel or resort comes with a range of different costs. This, of course, also includes power or energy costs. Does the climate change affect your usual monthly cost? Or do your bills seem to soar during the very hot or very cold months?
Regardless of what your local climate may be, or what cooling or heating system you use, the right window treatment can help to reduce your energy costs by helping to keep your indoor temperature more consistent, despite the changes in weather outside.
If you’re worried about the aesthetic side of it, not to fear. You can enjoy energy saving benefits while using a variety of beautiful window treatments that will make your guests feel comfortable and at ease.
Honeycomb Shades Honeycomb shades are also known as cellular shades. This window treatment delivers tremendous thermal performance, due to its pleated design. The shape of these blinds creates cells that trap air to maximize energy efficiency through enhanced insulation. Honeycomb shades are available in a vast array of colors and fabrics, making them an excellent choice for either public spaces or guest rooms.
Draperies Extra-long drapes that reach floor-length are another great choice for energy savings. For this window treatment, you should make sure that you select fairly thick fabrics or draperies that have a plastic lining. The insulation benefit produced by long draperies depends on how thoroughly they cover your windows when closed. This is why it’s best to have your drapes installed by custom window treatment professionals to ensure a perfect fit.
Interior Shutters Installing window shutters very tightly against the window frame can help keep inside air from escaping or outside air from coming in. When installed correctly, this classic window treatment is an excellent energy saver.
Bonus tip: To really maintain your indoor temperature, try adding energy-efficient window treatments to your glass doors as well.
