    Window Shades


    Window coverings are more important than most people think. Choosing the right window treatment for your home impacts maintaining the right temperature, saving money on energy costs, protecting your furniture and other belongings, and even making sure you and your family are getting the best sleep possible!

    Understanding Window Shades

    Did you know that approximately 30% of a home’s heating energy is lost through its windows? According to the U.S. Department of Energy, about 76% of the sunlight that falls on standard double-pane windows enters to become heat during warm weather seasons. Choosing the proper shades supports your efforts of heating or cooling your home.

    Proper window shades can affect your health when it comes to restful sleep. Studies have shown links to increased depression when sleeping with consistent dim lighting. Luckily, this can be corrected by decreasing the amount of light you’re experiencing during sleep. So turn off the lamp, TV, your phone, and draw down the shades for the best sleep!

    Using Window Shades Effectively 

    Many window coverings are easily adjustable. However, studies have shown that many people leave their operable window coverings in the same position day-to-day regardless of the weather.

    You will get the most out of your shades if you are strategic with how they are used. During the summer, closing blinds to direct sunlight will help prevent absorbing additional heat into your home and opening blinds with indirect sunlight can help brighten your home without affecting the temperature. 

    In the winter, take advantage of sunny days by opening blinds to the sun to boost your home’s temperature

    Keeping your Window Shades in Good Repair

    When you have shades that will not go up or down properly, the roller mechanism is likely at fault, and cleaning the mechanism can go a long way. To clean, remove the shade and take off the flat-pin end metal cap. Using the hose attachment or a small handheld vacuum remove as much dust and debris as possible, then wipe with a soft cloth. Apply a silicone lubricant to the mechanism then replace the metal cap and rehang the shade.

    A Service Plan from Lifetime Heating & Cooling gives you the peace of mind that your window coverings will stay operational and a resource for you to keep your house at a comfortable temperature without impacting energy costs!

    Why spend time and energy getting the right heating or cooling equipment for your home only for it to be undermined by improper window coverings? Give us a call to talk about how the right window shades can help keep your home comfortable and safe.

    What Our Customers Say

    Business responded quickly to my inquiry for service (thanks Renee!). Bobby arrived on time, explained everything he was doing, was quick, efficient and stuck to their quote, which was very reasonable BTW. I'm scheduling them for more services and wouldn't hesitate referring them to anyone.UPDATE! we had Lifetime return for dryer duct and vent cleaning, then for AC maintenance. Very happy both times and will continue to use their services. 5 thumbs up!👍👍👍👍👍

    What a great company filled with friendly, yet professional people who care about your job from the beginning to end. It starts with Renee who schedules the team to come out. The installers, Nick and Beau were excellent in checking in and communicating every step throughout the day. Electricians Tony and Alex had challenges with our system, but figured it out and voila! We have nice, cool, fresh air filling up our food bank!Then, here came David a few days later to service our furnace. Another excellent employee. We purchased the Premier Club Maintenance Plan and thrilled that we did!

    Nick, Beau & Tony did a great job installing our new AC & Furnace. Very professional, friendly & quick install. Nick had quite a job in such a tight space & did a terrific job. Beau even fixed a ducting problem after a previous contractor did a shoddy job. We so Appreciated their attention to detail. Great, professional, informative & fun team & we felt totally confident in their ability. We will definitely recommend them to friends who are looking for new AC. They even installed a much better & easier to use thermostat, set it up for our schedule. And the AC is so cool! Thanks Nick, Beau. & Tony.

    We called this company based off all the amazing google reviews and when we met with the company, we instantly knew we contacted the right people. They got us in for an estimate early, they scheduled us for our install the very next week (mind you it’s middle of summer when AC is WA is in high demand). The estimate was straight forward and they also looked into a few other heating questions we had regarding our home that was built a couple years that we think the builder didn’t install the best way.. I could go on and on. This seems like such a great company that truly cares about their people and their customers. We are excited to CHILL in our new AC that will be installed by this amazing company. 🙂 we have our install next week and I will submit another review after but let me tell you, from this point, we have had a great experience!! We worked with Robert who gave us our estimate and he is awesome!!
