Drapery linercuts energy loss
One major cause of energy loss in homes is poorly performing windows.
An easy way to reduce the loss appears to be the use of a drapery liner called the Roc-lon TLC, a soft, supple, blackout-fabric drapery liner that attaches to drapery and, the manufacturer says, makes the curtain 20 percent more efficient.
The blackout drapery liner uses a magnet to close in the center. That creates an energy-efficient barrier that holds warm air in, keeps cold air out, and offers complete privacy.
The liner also lowers cooling costs in summer by blocking direct sunlight, thus reducing the amount of work an air-conditioning system has to do.
In addition, the liners provide total darkness for daytime sleeping.
Price: $22.99 to $89.99.
