Adding blinds to your windows is a simple way to block out the sun’s rays and help keep your home cool during the very hot summer months. But there is one type of blind you should avoid for maximum cooling efficiency: metal blinds. While metal blinds do block light, they also heat up and can essentially act like a radiator in your home. Blinds made from fabric or bamboo, or cellular shades that have pockets of air to double-insulate the blinds, are better solutions.
