ORANGE, CA - (Marketwire - Jun 27, 2012) - Since the first Fourth of July was held at the White House in 1804 Americans have been rejoicing in historical fashion on our nation's birthday. This year, Budget Blinds® can help you stay cool and save energy at home while celebrating in comfort and style with smart window-covering solutions.
As people get ready to celebrate the Fourth of July, they are filled with the nostalgic thoughts of their ancestors who founded America. Modern day Americans continue being pioneers by becoming more environmentally conscience and using energy efficient green products. This movement has become a large part of the window coverings industry, and Budget Blinds is here to help you convert your house into an eco-friendly and energy saving home. Cooling your house with screens, retractable awnings, and window film are three energy efficient solutions that offer you different ways to stay cool in the summer environment with the added bonus of relaxing inside while still experiencing the excitement occurring outside.
Here's a few extra ways to keep cool on the Fourth of July and also throughout summer:
According to the U.S. Census Bureau, there are over 120 million homes that are five years or older and many are in desperate need of energy-efficiency updates. Studies have proven that the largest portion of a home's energy demand comes from the heating and cooling of the interior. While many families are not in a position to make costly updates to their appliances, the use of highly efficient window treatments can be effective for saving energy at home.
Stay connected with festivities on the 4th while lounging in the comfort of your home with retractable screens from Budget Blinds.
Retractable awnings are similar to screens in the fact that they increase the amount of comfortable space for you to enjoy inside and outside of your home. Awnings are great for the Fourth of July because they create more shade inside and outside which allows for more comfortable seating out of the hot sun. They can increase the shade on your patio which will entice more people to lounge outside without having to worry about becoming sticky with sweat or a burn from the sun's rays. They also provide a great oasis of shade to keep the ice in your coolers from melting quickly.
Window film is an especially energy efficient window treatment because reflective film not only reduces glare, but in combination with highly reflective blinds, can reduce heat gain by up to 45% according to the U.S. Department of Energy.
Independence Day is a day to enjoy with your close friends and family. Budget Blinds is here to help you celebrate America in comfort and style. Retractable awnings are a great addition to any host's home who plan on having Fourth of July fun. The extra shade on their patios or porches provides more room for people to enjoy the beautiful outside weather without suffocating in the stifling heat. With the money that you save by using energy efficient window coverings and treatments you can spend more money on your Independence Day festivities!
