Interested in finding window covering solutions to save your home from the summer heat? These 4 pieces of advice can help you make a dramatic change in your home.


Know your home.

The refreshing cool-down of summer nights in Rocklin make it easy to forget just how hot it can get during the day. In order to save your home from the summer heat, you have to consider the location of your windows. The direction they face plays a huge role in how the sunshine interacts with your home.

You want the light working for you, not against you. Depending on window location, you may need window shades for your living room that have completely different functional characteristics than the ones you have in your bedroom. That’s ok. Hunter Douglas carries fabrics, materials and textures that cross many window covering styles, helping you achieve a beautiful look while meeting the functional needs of your home.

Choose energy efficient.

The sunlight streaming through your windows in the middle of the afternoon has the potential to turn that outside heat of 80° to a balmy 110°. Protecting the inside of your home from the intensity of the sun with insulating window coverings is important, and you deserve the best. Energy efficient window coverings come in various styles and levels of temperature control.

Save your home from the summer heat, and experience a consistent, comfortable temperature inside, regardless of the temperature outside.


Enjoy functional features.

The best part about window shades is the ability to adjust them. If you don’t function them, or it’s difficult to do so, you might as well have a wall instead of a window. What about enjoying the beauty of natural light? What about your tremendous view? What about your breathtaking landscape during sunrise? You don’t want to miss out on what your windows are offering.
