WINDOW FILMS

Window films (applied to the glazing surface) help block against solar heat gain and protect against glare and ultraviolet exposure. They are best used in climates with long cooling seasons, because they also block the sun’s heat in the winter.

They can be useful for homeowners who don’t want to block views with other window treatments, but who have issues with glare and solar heat gain. They can also be a good choice on windows that are difficult to fit with other window treatments, or in places where artwork, furniture, or carpeting could be faded by UV exposure.

Films typically have three layers: an adhesive layer that sits against the glass, a polyester film layer, and a scratch-resistant coating. You may also choose options such as tints, UV blockers, or thicker films that offer security. Low-e films are also emerging as an energy-saving option.

Window films are rated by the National Fenestration Rating Council (NFRC), which also created window labeling and ratings for consumers. The NFRC’s Window Film Energy Performance Label looks like this:

A) Rated by NFRC.

B) Manufacturer and product name.

C) Details on NFRC rating procedures.

D) Reference Product column shows what type of glazing works best with the film.

E) Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC).

F) Visible Transmittance (VT).

It includes the solar heat gain coefficient (SHGC) and visible transmittance (VT) of the window film, both numbers between 0 and 1. The lower the SHGC, the better the film is at blocking heat gain. The higher the VT, the more potential for daylighting. Read more about energy performance ratings.

The effectiveness of these reflective films depends on:

  • Size of window glazing area
  • Window orientation
  • Climate
  • Building orientation
  • Whether the window has interior insulation.

Silver, mirror-like films typically are more effective than the colored, more transparent ones. More recently, there are solar control films that have a more neutral appearance and are effective at blocking near IR solar radiation in the summer.  East- and west-facing windows, because of their greater potential for heat gain, can benefit more from these films. North-facing windows won’t benefit from them, and south-facing windows may benefit somewhat, but the benefit could be offset by the reduction of heat from the winter sun. There are also window films that have low-e coatings, which can also be effective in reducing winter heat loss and increasing thermal comfort of occupants.  They also typically are effective at reducing near IR solar radiation. 

Window films can be professionally applied by a skilled installer or are available for do-it-yourself projects at home improvement stores.

Window films require extra care for cleaning.  If they are primarily absorbing solar radiation (tinted films), they can damage insulated glazing unit (IGU) seals.  Most window manufacturers will void their warranties if the film is installed on an IGU.

Exterior Window Treatments

EXTERIOR SHUTTERS AND SHADES

Body image Better Blinds Shades window treatments energy efficient winter blinds shades shutters Ocean View Millsboro

Exterior shutters and shades are usually made of a variety of materials, including fabric, wood, steel, aluminum, or vinyl. They are most effective at reducing solar heat gain.

Shades are typically fabric or vinyl and the material may have openings that allow some visibility through the window. The larger the openings, the less protection from solar gain. They are usually manually operated, though some can be opened or closed with a crank inside the home.

Roller shutters are usually mounted above the window and side channels guide them as they’re lowered and raised. When you lower these blinds completely, their slats meet and provide shade, privacy, security, and protection from storms. If partially raised, the blinds allow some air and daylight to enter through windows.

Most exterior shutter systems include a mechanical crank, rod, or motor to allow operation from indoors. This can help encourage daily use of the shutters, and may be required by local fire codes.

Learn more about exterior shutters and shades from the Efficient Window Coverings Collaborative.

AWNINGS

An awning is a roof-like shelter installed on a home’s exterior that shades windows from the sun’s heat and glare. Awnings can also shade outdoor living spaces. Awnings can be fixed or retractable.

Window awnings can reduce solar heat gain in the summer by up to 65% on south-facing windows and 77% on west-facing windows. You can use an awning to shade one window or have an awning custom-made to shade the entire side of your house.

In the past, most awnings were made of metal or canvas, which need to be re-covered every five to seven years. Today, awnings are made from synthetic fabrics such as acrylic and polyvinyl laminates that are water-repellent and treated to resist mildew and fading. Whatever the fabric, you should choose one that is opaque and tightly woven. A light-colored awning will reflect more sunlight.

Awnings require ventilation to keep hot air from becoming trapped around the window. Grommets (eyelets) or other openings along the tops and sides of an awning can provide ventilation. The awning may also open to the sides or top to vent hot air.

While awnings can save energy during the cooling seasons, they can increase energy used for heating, so keep this in mind when deciding whether awnings are right for you. You can also adjust your use depending on the season: keep awnings installed or closed in the summer and remove or open awnings in the winter. Fixed awnings can sometimes be installed to allow the lower-angle winter sunlight to reach windows.

You can roll up adjustable or retractable awnings in the winter to let the sun warm the house. New hardware, such as lateral arms, makes the rolling up process quite easy. Some awnings can also be motorized for easy operation.

EXTERIOR SOLAR WINDOW SCREENS

Solar screens can reduce solar heat gain, UV damage, and glare. They can be installed on the interior or exterior as roller shades or fixed panels, and they typically allow for a view out the window and light transmission. They look similar to regular insect screens but provide more efficiency benefits.

The openness factor on solar screens varies and affects the efficiency benefits; greater openness reduces the protection against glare and solar heat gain but increases visibility and light transmission.

Read more about solar screens from the Efficient Window Coverings Collaborative. 

Learn More About the Energy Performance Ratings for Window Treatments

When choosing window Treatments, look for products certified with the Treatments Energy Rating Council (AERC) Energy Improvement rating for increased energy savings and added comfort.

The AERC energy rating indicates that the product has been certified according to strict standards set forth by the AERC. AERC is an independent, public interest, non-profit organization whose mission is to rate, label and certify the energy performance of window attachment products.

The AERC Certified Product Search allows you to browse through the current window attachment products that have received AERC certification. Get started in your search for the energy-efficient window attachment product that’s right for you.

Save Money This Winter with Energy-Efficient Window Treatments: PART 1

Window treatments can be attached either internally or externally to windows to increase energy efficiency, improve privacy, decrease glare, enhance the value and appearance of your home.

What Are the Benefits of Energy-Efficient Window Treatments:

Both new and old homes need energy-efficient window treatments. Windows account for 30% of the home’s heating power. About 76% of the sunlight that passes through standard double-pane windows in cooling seasons becomes heat. Window coverings can reduce this loss of energy by providing comfort and regulating temperatures.

The type of attachment chosen the climate and the way it is used will all impact the exact savings. Storm windows with low-e coatings or multi-layer glazing can improve the thermal performance of windows as well as reduce solar heat gain.

Window Treatments: Key Benefits:

  • Comfort improvement
  • Dimming the glare and daylight
  • Energy savings
  • Cold drafts should be reduced near windows
  • Protect your privacy
  • Temperature control
    • When it’s cold, windows can reduce daytime and nighttime heat losses
    • When it’s hot, windows can reduce unwanted solar heat gain

Operable Window Treatments

Operable window covers allow you to control the opening and closing of your coverings. This allows you to make the most of natural light and maximize heat gain. There are many options: shades, blinds, shutters, awnings or draperies, window treatments, and shutters.

Operation of Window Treatments & Tips

According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 75% of residential window covers remain in the same place every day. While most window coverings can be operated, 75% of them are not. Do not fall for this trap – choose carefully which coverings to open and close during the day.

Open the window treatments in the morning if it is winter and sunny. This will allow the sun to heat your house. You can enjoy the sun all day, especially if you have direct sunlight.

To reduce heat gain in summer, keep your window coverings shut. You can let natural light in through the window coverings that aren’t exposed to direct sunlight.

To maximize sunlight and heat, you might also consider switching between the open and closed positions throughout the day.

Automated options are available for window coverings that can be installed in difficult-to-reach areas. Find out more about the advantages, drawbacks and installation of automated window covers.

Different types of window treatments:

Interior

  • Blinds
  • Cellular shades
  • Pleated shades
  • Roller shades
  • Roman shades
  • Storm windows/windowpanes
  • Shutters

Exterior:

  • Glass can be coated with plastic films
  • Exterior shades
  • Shutters
  • Awnings
  • Solar screens
  • Storm Windows
  • Interior Window Treatments
Body image Better Blinds Shades window treatments energy efficient winter blinds shades shutters

Insulated Cellular Shades:

Insulated cellular shades are made from pleated materials and are intended to be folded up accordion-like at the top and bottom of the windows. Insulated shades have one or more layers of air in a honeycomb cross section. You can adjust them from the top or bottom or both.

Insulated cellular shades are often considered to have the highest R values of all window coverings. The honeycomb cross-sections’ air pockets act as insulation, increasing the R value and reducing heat conduction through the window.

Insulated cellular shades are a great choice if you want to save significant energy through your window coverings. They also offer privacy, comfort, and increased home value.

Cellular shades that are tightly fitted can reduce heat loss by up to 40% in heating seasons. This equates roughly to 10% energy savings. Cellular shades can be used to reduce solar heat loss through windows up to 60% in cooling seasons. They can also reduce solar gain by as much as 20% if fitted tightly.

Side track cellular shades are the most effective in increasing the R value of windows. Those that open from both top and bottom can be used to control sunlight entering the home.

Certain cellular shades can be programmed to automate, so that the blinds open and close according to a predetermined schedule. You can adjust the schedule to decrease heating and cooling loads, maximize natural light, and increase comfort in your home.

8 Window Treatment Ideas for Sliding Doors That Are Elegant and Functional Sponsored By: Better Blinds & Shades, Ocean View & Millsboro DE.

8 Window Treatment Ideas for Sliding Doors That Are Elegant and Functional

Sponsored By: Better Blinds & Shades, Ocean View & Millsboro DE.

Natural light is one of the most attractive features in a house. Sliding glass doors are a great way to let plenty of sunlight into your home. You can combine the beauty of your home with the stunning view outside.

When choosing window treatments for a sliding glass door, consider all the ideas below to include blinds, shades and shutters in solid or beautiful patterns.

#1 / Blinds and Shades for Sliding Doors and Windows

Many sliding doors can be paired with windows. Instead of trying to find a window treatment for each, dress them together. It’s easy to set up drapery rods across the bank. Then, pick curtains that match your taste. Make sure that you have enough fabric for the curtains to close fully.

#2 / Sliding Door Window Treatments That Are Discreet

Sliding doors provide expansive views that aren’t blocked by heavy draperies. Roller shades are a discreet option that will not block the view. The system can be rolled up and blends with the door’s trim to create a seamless appearance. When you need to block out light or provide privacy, the simple window shades can be pulled back.

#3 / Curtains That Block Sunlight for Patio Sliding Door

Blocking light is important in areas with intense sunlight like a room with south-facing sliding door. Lined curtains are the best choice for sliding doors to block out the sun’s rays. This will keep your home cool during the summer and protect furnishings like area rugs from sun damage and fading.

Many sliding doors can be paired with windows. Instead of trying to find a window treatment for each, dress them together.

#4 / Window Treatments that Shade & Let in The Natural Light

Sliding doors are popular for their expansive views as well as the ease of getting outdoors. It can be difficult to find the right sliding door curtain ideas. Simple is best. Simple opaque or sheer curtains, as well as a pair of simple panels, will allow light to filter through while still allowing privacy. Curtains that are hung on rings can slide open easily to make the door more accessible.

#5 / Patterned Design for Patio Doors

Sliding doors take up a lot of wall space and leave less room for art or color. You can reclaim that wall space with patterned sliding doors curtains. The bold stripes of this dining room curtain are a focal point, while still keeping the space’s relaxed atmosphere in mind.

#6 / Sliding Glass Door Curtain Window Treatments

Sliding glass door curtains that can accommodate all visitors will keep traffic moving. A curtain rod should be long enough to reach beyond the sliding door. By doing this, curtains will not get in the way of traffic and remain out of the way. A soft blue shade adds interest to a neutral color scheme in this dining room.

#7 / A More Elegant Look for Sliding Glass Door Window Treatments

Sliding glass door draperies can improve the formality of a space. Here, black-and-white striped draperies bookend black sliding doors. The living room is crowned with dramatic glamour thanks to a large, white cornice that runs from one wall to the other.

#8 / Patio Door Window Treatments That Offer Fashion & Function

It can be difficult to choose a window treatment that will work with a sliding door. You don’t want it to interfere with the door’s functionality. Tiebacks can be used to tie curtains to your sliding door. This will allow you to keep the door functional. Roman shades or valances should be mounted high enough to prevent the hem from catching on heads. Curtain panels should be hung at least an inch above the floor so they can be easily opened and closed. This will keep them from getting damaged by foot traffic.

7 Home Library Window Treatment Ideas for 2022. Sponsored by Better Blinds in Ocean View & Millsboro DE

7 Home Library Window Treatment Ideas for 2022

Are you a lover of reading and do you have a spare bedroom? You can create your home library! A bookworm’s dream is to have the ideal place to store and unwind, read, and enjoy their favorite stories.

Window treatments can have a significant impact on the style of your library, whether it is contemporary and hip or dark and traditional. Your choices include blinds, shades and shutters, all with a variety of styles and textures. This element can make the space feel larger and more inviting, or it can be detrimental.

This post will outline seven window treatments that are best for library windows, and how they can enhance your home’s decor. Take a look.

These window coverings will make your home library more spacious and functional.

1) Wooden Blinds

Choose wooden blinds for a contemporary or modern home library.

They are durable and available in a variety of colors and stains. Wood’s warm color is soothing and compliments wooden bookshelves.

The louvres allow for privacy and light control during the day. This window treatment creates a warm ambience at night by bringing together yellowish light from fixtures.

For a more affordable look, you can consider faux wood, composite or woven wooden shades.

2) Sheer Panels

Shutter panels are the best option if you want to enhance your home library decor with sunlight. These panels look great on their own or paired with drapes or curtains for privacy.

These panels are made from soft, light fabrics that let in lots of light. They look great paired with curtains for a traditional and elegant touch. They can be used with almost any type of lighting depending on the fabric.

Suggestion: Warm light, in addition to sunlight, is the best way for a home library to be comfortable. For best results, choose bulbs with a color temperature of 2000k to 3000k. To provide sufficient task lighting, table and floor lamps are a good choice.

3) Plantation Shutters

Plantation shutters can be a unique window covering option for a home library. Shutters offer light control but are not the best option.

However, they do have one distinctive quality that makes them an ideal window treatment for home libraries. Plantation shutters, when combined with double-glazed, dramatically reduce noise infiltration. This allows you to focus on your book without being distracted.

A home library can be a wonderful place to relax and read your favorite books. You need window treatments to make a reading space feel welcoming. The above-mentioned window treatments can make a big difference in the appearance, feel, and functionality of your home library.

4) Cellular Shades

Cellular shades are renowned for their versatility and can be used in every room, even libraries. They are able to regulate the temperature of the space, making it comfortable and warm. This protects precious and antique books from being damaged.

Cellular shades can also be used to muffle outside noise, creating a quiet and peaceful place to read.

5) Sheer Curtains

These curtains are a great way to reduce the brightness of the sun and filter the light that enters the space. Curtains add a natural elegance to a space by their fluid, airy appearance. You can also pull curtains aside to add visual interest.

6) Motorized Window Coverings

7 Home Library Window Treatment Ideas for 2022

Are you a lover of reading and do you have a spare bedroom? You can create your home library! A bookworm’s dream is to have the ideal place to store and unwind, read, and enjoy their favorite stories.

Automated blinds and shades are a great way to control the light in your home and add privacy. These can enhance the beauty, comfort, and protection of your favorite reading spot.

These window treatments are the best for your home library.

Shades and motorized blinds can increase the energy efficiency of your home library by controlling light and insulation. To maximize light efficiency, you can have them open during the day to allow in natural light. At night, they can be closed with a touch of a button. Some models have sensors that allow you to adjust the shades according to the temperature of the room.

To operate the shades manually, you don’t have to get out of your comfy reading spot. You can instead set up a schedule to raise and lower the shades.

Motorized shades and blinds can be moved in a single motion to adjust the glare to suit the sun’s position. They can be moved in one fluid motion to the correct spot and in perfect alignment.

7) Roman Shades

Automation is not something you should trust. Roman shades are the best option. You can choose from a variety of fabrics; they offer privacy control and are compatible with traditional and modern homes. This shade is ideal for creating a relaxed atmosphere in a window-side reading area for casual or serious reading. Depending on the fabric, they can be the focal point of a room.

The early settlement of the Millville area by Europeans is poorly recorded, although it is known that the swampymarshy nature of much of the land of eastern Baltimore Hundred in southeastern Delaware when the first Europeans arrived led them to establish plantations on higher ground in the vicinity of what are now Millville, Ocean View, and Clarksville. Millville itself grew up around a steam-powered sawmill operated by Captain Peter Townshend in the late 19th century, becoming a center for lumberagricultural products, and commercial fishing.[9]

For a time, the names “Dukestown” and “Dukesville” were considered for the town because of the prominence and number of members of the Dukes family who lived in the area. Eventually, the town was named Millville because of the sorghum mills, lumber mills and grist mills in the area.

Millville was incorporated in 1906. It had a population of 206 at the time,[12] and has grown in population only very slowly since,[9] reaching only 259 by the 2000 census. However, the population more than doubled by the 2010 census, rising to 544 residents,[citation needed] the highest in the recorded history of Millville.

Millville was considered the principal town of Baltimore Hundred, although this today lacks meaning because Delaware’s hundreds lost their political functions long ago and now serve only as geographic points of reference.
