Summer is in the rear-view mirror, and it's time to start pulling out the long pants, sweaters, and jackets you're going to need for those chilly winter months here in the Kennebunk, Maine area. You’ll need to bundle up to stay warm when you’re outside, but you’ll want to shed your layers once you step into a home that doesn’t have any chilly spots.
According to the U.S. Department of Energy, 30 percent of a house’s heating energy is lost through windows. That means your climate control system has to work 30-percent harder to maintain a regular temperature, which increases your heating bills. Having window coverings diminish heat loss and motorized shades are an especially helpful way to keep your house regulated as winter settles in.
