Cellular Shades and Insulating Your House
With home heating costs this season estimated to go through the roof, there are viable ways to maximize the energy efficiency of your home with the proper window coverings.
Hitting home for many families is the ever-increasing cost of energy. If you live in a cold climate you are probably feeling the pinch of fuel costs even if they are a bit down from earlier in the year. I lived in Pennsylvania for many years and I was acutely aware of this. It seemed that every winter the prices just kept going up.There are ways to dramatically improve the energy efficiency of your home and one of them is with the right types of window blinds and shades. One of the best types of window treatments for insulation is cellular shades. They come in single and double cells. The double cell shades offer the greatest level of insulation both for hot and cold weather. However, both types of shades are specially designed to keep the heat in and the cold out.
The single and double-cell construction of cellular window shades not only provide the highest level of insulation, but also filter out harsh UV rays that can damage interiors and upholstery in your home. In addition, if you get a blackout shade, insulation is generally increased further. Our cellular shades, also known as cell or honeycomb window shades are made from 100% woven polyester fabric for durability and offer many years of resilience against wear and tear.
Cellular shades can actually pay for themselves with the money saved in energy cost. In today’s economy it’s definitely a wise economic decision.
