Blinds Chalet says the Honeycomb cellular shade can be one of the best insulators available on the market today. Honeycomb blinds are constructed with an insulating cell layer that traps cold air coming in and provides a barrier to warm air attempting to escape.
According to Planet Green's Josh Peterson in his article 'Use Cellular Blinds to Save Energy,' Honeycomb cellular shades increase the R value (thermal resistance value) by three. Considering single panes rank an R value of .8 to .9, honeycomb blinds offer a considerable increase in insulation.
KY3 News' Cara Restelli reports the majority of Americans are concerned about the rising cost of heating their homes this winter. Nearly half of households will use an alternative heating source to reduce their bills as cold weather sets in which includes portable space heaters, stoves, ovens and fireplaces.
"Some of the newer honeycomb cellular shade products were built with insulation in mind. A super insulator is the ComforTrack Translucent Double Cell Shade. It slides on tracks located on either side of the blind which forms a tight, insulating barrier. It is a great product for energy efficiency," says Chris Stanley of Blinds Chalet.
