Window Shadings: The Perfect Companions For Sustainable Homes

Window Shadings: The Perfect Companions For Sustainable Homes
12 Oct 2020
Whether it be the excess use of air-conditioners in summer or the heating in winter, different seasons lead to different ways of power consumption and rising carbon footprints. Studies reveal that close to a third of heat energy in normal houses is lost due to poorly insulated windows in winter. Similarly, more than ¾ of total sunlight entering through typical uncovered glass pane windows raises the interior temperatures of our living spaces. 

That’s where high-quality window coverings can help in not only making home interiors better and more energy-optimized, but, also in reducing the power consumption.
Before exploring the various options available for your windows, let’s take a look at the benefits of efficient window shades:


High-quality window shades can reduce power consumption by giving you the ability to increase or decrease the amount of sunlight that enters your home. This is beneficial for the environment as lower power consumption by cooling/heating systems can reduce the carbon footprint of your home. Further, the sunlight is rich in Vitamin D which is essential for the body, and enjoying the fuzzy warmth of natural light can be a great boon for your productivity and energy levels. 

Mental peace: 

Dark, cold, or damp interiors can create a gloomy and energy-sapping ambiance. The colder and darker it is internally, the more difficult it becomes to remain cheerful. In areas with colder climates, the reduction in daylight hours is known to increase instances of depression and mood swings. However, by smartly managing the flow of natural light into the homes helps in serotonin release and it can be a mood lifter. 

Superior sleep quality:

People who find it difficult to sleep can use window coverings to block excess light or heat and create cozy sleeping areas. By maintaining an optimal balance between light and dark, our body is able to produce adequate amounts of melatonin, the sleep hormone.

Hence, to get into the perfect sleep mode, you can choose the blackout roller blinds or curtains and enjoy a great night’s rest. 


Another major benefit of the window shades is the privacy they offer you. These days you can simply cover the windows using remote control operated blinds or curtains and enjoy the privacy from outsiders.
