Beating The Heat With Window Shades Even your air conditioning will only work when it is favorable inside. If there is too much sun coming in from one end or there is too much latent heat trapped in your room, you won’t find bliss in the cool of your AC at all. In a city like Manhattan shades and window treatments are a must because you can’t even be running your air conditioning on full speed nonstop during summer. There are many kinds of window treatments NYC shops have to offer for your home but not all of them will suit your needs. You have to be clever with the use of curtains and shades, blinds and other window treatments so that you can keep your home cool and your electricity bills in control.

Intelligent Awnings Window awnings are a clever option in Manhattan. Shades and curtains too let you control the heat that your home receives but with awnings you can easily reduce solar heat gain in your house by up to 65%. For best results during summer season and especially during those peak weeks where the sun is scorching hot, you should choose awnings in all the light colors and shades. They will be able to reflect more


sunlight and thus ward off more heat. Cool Curtains and Drapes Another very useful window treatment NYC citizens like to employ is the thick curtains and drapes. These are ideal for your home on those piping hot summer days. These can be found in the most velvety and smooth textures that remain cool even after remaining before the sun for hours and you can keep them closed for as long as the sun is harsh without damaging their color. According to studies, medium colored window treatments NYC with white plastic backings are able to reduce heat gain by 33%. So, have you picked out your shades and drapes yet?
