Windows allow a lot of natural sunlight into your home. This allows you to minimize the use of lamps or overhead lights and reduce your energy bill. There are other ways you can update your windows to decrease your energy consumption.

Insulation
Insulation acts as a buffer between the outdoors and the interior of your home. It keeps warm air inside in the winter and cool air inside in the summer.

Shades
Cellular shades are another great option for windows. They not only look fantastic but also improve energy efficiency. You can even control the amount of light your windows let in, especially if you choose shades with the blackout option.

You can use your windows both to increase light and keep out cold or heat. Follow these home maintenance tips to make your home more sustainable and efficient.
