I am buying my first home and looking at different blinds. I am in an area that has hot summers and cold winters. My home builder isn't known for the best quality insulation. Should I get really good insulated blinds for the windows? Does it really make a difference? I am looking at either wooden blinds or good insulated ones.
Yes they do. We have a passive solar house and things like closing the blinds in the summer make a huge difference in the temperature of the house. If you can imagine, in winter, when there is any sun, if we open the upstairs curtains and blinds it gets to 80˚ or higher up there. We don't use the blinds for heat/cold insulation, but insulated drapes/panels.
Michael, this is not your first post where you have added a link to that site so I cannot think anything other than that you are advertising which is not allowed on this forum.
Please have some respect and quit advertising.
I suggest that everyone who sees this reports it as advertising altho the mods don't seem very concerned any more but it's worth a try.
