Austin , Texas , May 18, 2007 - Experts are predicting home energy costs to rise by 70% or more this summer season. With the rising cost of electricity for cooling your home, conserving energy is now more important than ever. According to research, covering a window with even the least expensive of window coverings can enhance the cooling effect in a room. Some of the products YourBlinds offers have been tested and found to reduce heat accumulation by 80% to 95%!
Cellular shades, also referred to as honeycomb shades, are perfect way to reduce your energy costs not only in the summer but also year round because their construction, similar in appearance to a six-sided honeycomb structure from a side profile, traps air in each cell. The trapped air insulates to save you money.
For example, cellular shades keep the kitchen or any room around the house cooler. Blinds are a very low cost and energy efficient means for insulating your house year round. Two excellent methods to block heat are insulation and shading. Insulation helps keep your home comfortable and saves money on mechanical cooling systems such as air conditioners and electric fans. Insulation can also be accomplished by installing blinds in your hot kitchen.
