Benefits of Cellular Shades

March 30, 2017


Cellular shades are a great option to reduce energy costs in your home. They have a high R value, therefore keep the heat out in the summer and the cold out in the winter.

How do they insulate more efficiently than other blinds? The honeycomb-like structure in a cellular shade traps ‘dead air space’ between the window and the interior of the room. This ‘dead air space’ provides a layer of insulation within the body of the shade. Therefore, a double cell cellular provides more insulation than a single cell cellular.

Cellular shades are also blackout shades so they keep the light out making them perfect for bedrooms and media rooms. Blackout shades also have better insulation values than light filtering shades. The insulation properties on cellular shades can be further enhanced by adding side seals.
