I have a sunroom addition and there are 7 large Anderson windows in it. A friend's home had a track system that held a quilted "shade" that could be cranked opened and closed.
I would like to find out where I might get information on this type of system to help keep the cold out.
My home is in the nortern RI area and if anyone might suggest a company I could contact, your advice would be greatly appreciated.
I don't have a recommendation on where to get window quilts (check your yellow pages?). However, I do have a related issue to mention. Window quilts do indeed make a room warmer during the winter, but make the window much colder which can lead to condensation issues. At 0° outside, if you had a modern Low E coated window, the glass temperature would drop at least an additional 21° when covered by a window quilt. If your humidity is low in the home that will not be an issue. However, if your humidity level is high, the use of window quilts can lower the glass temperature below the given dew point, leading to the formation of wood-damaging condensation on the glass.
