Highlights

According to the Department of Energy (DOE), 25% of the energy used to heat and cool homes goes right out the window. Make sure to check out products with Sun Shades and Honeycombs for energy savings. Consider high insulation curtains and environmentally friendly, toxic free fabrics like Hemp that look like linen but cost less. You not only save on the material but you may also save on your families health since they are not full of the chemicals used in commercial fabric production.

Also consider installing 'Solar Screens' in place of your old ones on your windows. They’ll keep that cool breeze coming through, but will block up to 80% of the sun’s heat and glare. Energy savings comes with insulating 'Thermal' curtains if you take the time to draw them shut in the evening over the winter and in certain rooms over the summer during the day. There are diverse styles of coverings, including Roman fold, top/down, bottom/up and motorized, and the average R-values range from 2 to 2.9, plus adding an optional liner increases that by one to two points.

Thermal curtains cost between $67–$320 per window if they are in good shape, so, before you spend money on traditional curtains, consider the savings. Thermal curtains can save: $4–$8 per window per year.

The ROI Calculation is based on Thermal Curtains costing $30 more than comparable fabric curtains per window for 10 windows.

Good to Know:
New 'thermal ' insulated curtains or double cellular blinds can more than double the insulation R Value of the windows. The 'double' cell is what traps the air and creates a better insulator. A wall may have an insulation R Value of 19 but windows rarely exceed 3. Cellular blinds not only have an R Value but when pulled down in the summer during the day, they can reflect back a third or more of the potential heat gain.

Leaks - If you can see daylight around a window frame or if you can 'rattle' them, since movement means possible leaks, then they need attention. You can usually seal these leaks by caulking or weather stripping them. Why not replace your old windows or add 'smart windows' to a new addition. ENERGY STAR® qualified 'Low-E' windows help reduce your energy bill up to 15%, so they save money for as long as you own your home. Well maintained wood windows built after the 1950s with equally well maintained storm windows do not necessarily need to be replaced because the payback is multiple decades away when it comes to just the offset energy costs. However, this does not factor in the cost of painting wood windows every five years, so energy efficient replacements save on time and money that is not necessarily based on 'energy'. Note that the labor to replace a window may cost $65 with another $65 to 'cap' the exterior, but the total labor allowance is $200 to cover any interior work or unexpected factors.
