Wisconsin Saves Fun Tip:
The entire month of July, we are committed to helping you KEEP YOUR COOL and SAVE!
Here’s how you can start this week:
- On summer days, keep your curtains closed, especially on windows that get direct sunlight. The ability of curtains and drapes to reduce heat gain depends on fabric type and color. Medium-colored draperies with white-plastic backings (also called solar curtains) can reduce heat gain by 33 percent. Hang the curtains as close to the window as possible for maximum effect.
