Energy Savings: On Your Windows

Now that it is warming up outside we find that temperature is not the only thing rising. Our electricity bills are skyrocketing as we’re turning the dials on our air conditioners. Did you know that blinds and shutters are not only a great way to enhance the look and feel of your home, but they are also a fantastic way to cut down on those rising energy bills?

Deflecting heat during the summer months is a great way to be a good steward of your resources, as well as put dollars back in your pocket. 

Other benefits include: 

  • Reduced Energy Bills
  • Lowered Energy Consumption
  • Less Fading of Your Interior Furniture and Art
  • A More Consistent Indoor Temperature


Blinds, shades and shutters are an excellent way to save energy. Not only do they repel heat in the summer time they provide insulation in the winter months. 

Barefoot and Company offers a wide range of styles and brands that will provide better energy savings. Honeycomb shades as well as wood or faux wood blinds will do a better job at conserving energy than aluminum or roller shades.

On the average home, windows account for nearly 50% of heat gain or loss depending on the time of year. Make a smart decision when purchasing your blinds, shades and shutters; Barefoot and Company can help!
