Insulating Honeycomb Shades by 3 Day Blinds Lower Energy Bills Year-RoundCan a beautiful fabric window shade really help you improve the insulation of your home? Absolutely!
At 3 Day Blinds, we recommend our Honeycomb Shades (sometimes called Cellular Shades) to our clients who want to keep their homes warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
In fact, Chuck and Susan, our customers in the Palm Springs area, rave about how their Honeycomb Shades, recommended by 3 Day Blinds Design Consultant, Angela Howe, saved them them 25% on their energy bills and paid for themselves in 6 months! We could not ask for a better endorsement than one from one of the hottest cities in the USA…
But how do they work? If you look at a cross-section of these high-tech fabrics, you will see pockets that trap a layer of air in between the front and back layer of the fabric. Our TwinCell and TripleCell Fabrics actually have multiple air pockets, that provide even more insulation. This material construction greatly reduces heat transfer from one side of the shade to the other. And because all of our shades are made precisely to your window measurements, the gap between the edge of your shade and the window frame will be minimal when you choose an inside-the-window mount.
But enough about the technical stuff! Our Honeycomb Shades are gorgeous, they are available in more than 100 fashion colors and materials, and most fabrics are white on the side that faces outside for uniformity.
They look great with any decor – traditional, modern, eclectic, cottage, you name it!
When opened, they stack tightly to preserve your view. Choose the Top Down/Bottom Up style to lower your shades from the top to let in the light from above and maintain your privacy below. Or select a DuoShade, and combine any two fabrics in our line for 2 shades in 1! We offer several different operating systems, including two that are safer for children with no exposed cords: Motorized and Cordless.
