Using Automated Blinds In Your Home To Lower Your Heating/Cooling Costs

  • May 17, 2016 /

Automated Window BlindsThe use of automated blinds means that you can open and close your blinds with the press of a button or with sunrise and sunset—thereby eliminating the need to struggle with them manually (and if you’re like most humans, you’ve had your share of one-on-one battles with your blinds.) However, the biggest benefit of using automatic blinds is the fact that they can reduce your energy bills.

Improve Your Home’s Energy Efficiency with Automated Blinds

You’re probably wondering how exactly automatic blinds save energy. Don’t they use energy in order to operate? Wouldn’t that mean that they are less energy efficient than traditional blinds? Yes, automated blinds do use a little bit of energy in order to function—but the energy use is negligible compared to the amount of energy you will save.

When your blinds are closed—no matter what kind of blinds you have—they block out the sunlight. Sunlight causes warmth, so in the summer when you are trying to keep your home cool, keeping your blinds closed will help keep warm air out of your house. During the winter, leaving your blinds open during the day and closing them at night will help bring in the warmth of the sunlight and help keep it trapped inside your home. Basically, you’ll put less stress on your HVAC system and reduce its need to work as much by strategically using your blinds.

With automatic blinds, you can program your blinds to open and close at specific times of the day to help make sure that you are putting as little stress on your heating or cooling units as possible.
