Reduce Your Heating Bill with Cellular Shades - The Great Room

Reduce Your Heating Bill with Cellular Shades

With the rapidly and wildly rising energy costs, many people are eagerly looking to reduce the heating bill in any way that is feasible. One simple and effective way to reduce the cost of your next heating bill is to install cellular shades. Honeycomb blinds are very popular window treatment solutions and a key component in efficiently and effortlessly saving energy while helping to maintain the indoor temperature in your home or office.

Easy to install cellular blinds can help reduce your heating bills this winter and even your cooling bills next summer. In fact, out of all manufactured blinds, honeycomb blinds are by far the most energy efficient option. No other type of blind comes close to the energy efficiency of honeycomb-shaped blinds.

Here is how cellular shades work to save money on the heating bill:
Honeycomb blinds strategically trap air inside their unique “honeycomb” shaped pockets. These pockets become instant insulators that stop or slow down the transfer of heat between your windows and the rest of your home. When this air stays trapped within the cellular blinds, your heater kicks on less, thus, saving energy and decreasing your heating bill. Cellular shades with larger cell pockets provide better insulation as they can hold more air within the cells. Also, honeycomb blinds with additional layers provide even better insulation. Black out cellular fabrics provide optimal insulation.

Save Money All Year Long
Cellular blinds can also work wonders in the summer months. Just as they trap cold air in the winter, cellular blinds do the same exact thing with hot air in the summer. Whether you are running the air conditioning or heat, it doesn’t matter. Either way, cellular-shaped shades are going to save you money.

Stylish, Useful, and Affordable
Windows are often a source of thermal inefficiency in a home or office. Older windows can be drafty for a variety of reasons. Some are single pane windows and lack the additional sheet of glass which helps trap air and add insulation. Other windows use wood or metal frames and don’t seal very well, leaking thermal energy. Modern double and triple pane windows are designed with energy efficiency in mind. Cellular blinds help trap additional air like the additional panes of glass in modern windows. While cellular shades over single pane windows are not as efficient as double pane windows, cellular blinds are less expensive than installing new windows. Cellular blinds can be a worthwhile investment until you are able to replace your windows and are durable enough that you can hang them right back up after you do.

If you are looking for an easy, stylish way to slash the cost of your heating bill, look no further than honeycomb blinds. These highly attractive and affordable blinds are available in several different colors and styles to match your home décor. Honeycomb blinds save money and look good while doing it.
