Energy Saving Tips For The Outside Of Your Windows

1411603_windows_shuttersIt seems we always are talking about energy efficiency at our windows from the inside. But I have some exterior energy savings tips for the outside of our homes. See if any of these will work for your home.
Awnings that overhang a window can keep the strong rays of the sun’s heat from pouring into your rooms. Your air conditioner will not have to work so hard or so long.
Outdoor shutters can add a nice decorative accent for the outside of your home and when installed to be useful and not just decorative, they can add security and weather protection to your home. Covering the windows with shutters cuts down on the energy flowing out of the window.
Overhangs, mesh window screens and exterior blinds are good not just in hurricane zones of the country.
I have lots of ideas for the inside of your home and you will see them in the near future!
