Windows can allow both air and sunlight into your home. You can use both of these elements to reduce your energy costs. Here are some ways to benefit:
- Did you know? California made a significant energy-saving step by becoming the first state to vote window films into its building code. Window films can deflect solar energy, which will reduce the energy needed to cool the house.
- Use those extra hours of sunlight to save energy. Open the curtains on south- and north-facing windows to keep your home bright without turning on the lights and adding extra heat.
- Keep your home comfortable on warm spring days with smart ventilation. Open your windows during cool nights, and then shut your windows and blinds each morning to lock the chilly air indoors.
