#2. Proper Installation
At ZebraBlinds we consider window shades the simplest and most effective way to save energy with modern window treatments for your living room and other parts of your home. But proper installation is the key to Heat Blocking Window Shades. Mounting the shades as close to the glass and right up against the bordering wall creates a tight seal that minimizes both heat gain and loss. Shades with dual layers of fabric — a light color on one side and a darker color on the other— add more functionality. Try reversing the shades based on the season, the lighter color will reflect heat in the summer.
#3. Exterior Heat Blocking Window Shades
Both interior and exterior blinds help reduce solar heat gain while maintaining the desired light, ventilation, and privacy. When closed and lowered on a sunny window, reflective blinds of lighter colors are capable of reducing heat gain by 45 percent.
Exterior Blinds and Shades are potentially even more effective than interior blinds. Unlike interior blinds, these blinds block out light and heat before it is transmitted through the window and warms up the room. They are tricky to add to an existing window, hence they are best customized to suit your needs and requirements.
#4. Colors Matter! Choose From Modern Blinds and Shades of Colours That Keep Your Room Cool
Energize your room with fresh energy with modern window treatment ideas for your living room. Vibrant designs and free-flowing fabrics make customized drapes and curtains one of the best window coverings to keep heat out.
Depending on fabric weight and color, drapes help insulate your home from the solar heat gain in summer. Medium drapes with lighter colors and a liner can reduce solar heat gain by as much as 33 percent if left closed during hot months. Hang drapes from a cornice or right up from the ceiling window to the floor and position them as close to the window as possible.
#5. Use Liners or Reflective Fabrics
A highly reflective material or fabric reduces heat gain the whole year long, including in winter months, which might actually benefit from solar heat.
Silver, the mirror-like film works better than more transparent film. High reflectivity film works well on very large windows, like in the living rooms where cool temperatures are desirable. If these aren’t available, go for light colors or thermal liners for extra reflectivity and protection.
#6. Use Blackout Fabrics for 100% Light Blockage
Do you wish to block sunlight up to 100%? You should go for the high-quality blackout fabrics and linings, which fully block the light and heat of blazing sunshine. The advancements in the manufacturing process of drapery linings have made blackout liners better and more affordable.
While most shades will help reduce heat from direct sunlight, blackout fabrics will block 100% of the light through the fabric and are generally thicker and better for insulation.
#7. Day/Night Blinds Allow For Versatile Light Control
For Heat Blocking Window Shades where both light and privacy are desired, day-night blinds are a perfect solution. These unique 2-in 1 window treatments feature light filtering and blackout material that can be used independently or together to suit your needs. You can adjust the light filtering or the blackout shade exactly the way you need it. You can add a cordless lift to make operating these shades easier.
#8. Reduce Heat While Keeping Your View With Solar Shades
Solar Shades are an ideal window treatment for your home to block heat from the sun. With our modern blinds and shades, they are a perfect compliment for floor-to-ceiling windows and large windows that receive direct sunlight. Their sheer weave design comes in a variety of openness, which refers to the amount of light that enters the room. Solar shades maintain views while blocking UV rays and help keep rooms cool.
