Why you should keep your shades drawn during the summer [VIDEO]
Today we're continuing our series on how to stay cool this summer without spending an arm and a leg. To cut back on cooling costs you may be tempted to keep your windows open on warm days in the hopes of catching a breeze. However, if you don't keep your shades drawn you may be making the problem worse.
Sunlight streaming in through windows is one of the top sources of heat in your home. Investing in shades or purchasing tinted film that can go over your windows could go a long way toward keeping your house cool and comfortable, and it may lead to a lower cooling bill.
Of course, getting new shades alone isn't enough to keep your house cool and comfortable. You should also consider utilizing Icynene spray foam insulation to ensure your house is fully insulated. It’ll ensure that there are no cracks or spaces for cool air to leak out and hot air to get in, keeping you cool and saving you money each month^.
