Lower Your Energy Bill With Cellular Shades

As the temperature outside changes, your energy bills increase. Keeping your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer months can be expensive, but there are ways to help. Sealing your doors, adding insulation, or buying a more efficient heater or air conditioner can all help reduce your bills. At North County Blind Company Inc., we know another thing that can help lower your energy bill; cellular window shades. We stock two Hunter Douglas cellular window shades styles, and we would love to pass those savings on to you.

How Does It Work?

Cellular window shades are engineered with a unique design that increases energy efficiency. About 25%-30% of the energy loss in your home is through your windows. Any window treatment will help with that loss, but cellular shades are created specifically to assist with insulation. The shades are constructed with built-in pockets that trap air. This trapped air adds a layer of insulation that helps maintain the temperature inside your rooms and keeps warm and cool air from coming in or leaking out.

If you love the simplicity and low profile of a roller shade but want a bit more energy efficiency, the Sonnette® Cellular Roller Shade from Hunter Douglas is your best choice. This shade is crafted from two layers of fabric to create the air pockets discussed above. The dual layers gently diffuse light to give your window a soft glow. The shade also retracts completely into the headrail, which is out of the way when opened. With four fabric collections to choose from and dozens of colors and opacity choices, you are sure to find the perfect match for your home.

These innovative shades are the top choice for energy-efficient window coverings. The result of years of research and development, Duette® Honeycomb Shades have a proprietary design that provides even better insulation than regular cellular shades. The newest offering, Duette Architella®, features a dual honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb design that is even more energy efficient. Duette® Honeycomb Shades are also available with LightLock™, which offers unparalleled darkness. Duette® Honeycomb shades can also be fitted vertically for sliding glass doors and cut for circles, ovals, arches, hexagons, and octagons. Combine all of this with the vast fabric selection, and you have energy-efficient window treatments for every single window in your home.
