Install Window Blinds for a More Comfortable Home Environment

By Mark J. Donovan

Installing window blinds is a great way to keep your home feeling cooler during the summer months and warmer during the cold ones. By installing window blinds you can help to reduce cold air drafts and provide some extra window insulation in your home. Window blinds are also great for blocking out early morning or late afternoon sunlight when the sun is low on the horizon.

Window blind installation is a breeze and typically requires only a screw driver or a hammer. Window blinds also come in a wide assortment of types and sizes, so there is no limit to your choices. There are both vertical and horizontal window shades, as well as vinyl roll up window blinds that simply roll up or pull down with a gentle tug.

Window blinds also require little maintenance. Simply wipe them down occasionally with a duster or damp cloth and that’s about it.

Window blinds vary in price, however in general they are quite inexpensive, particularly when you consider their home energy savings.
