Looking to save some money on your electric bill? Insulating blinds make a great addition to any home. Not only do they look great, they can save you hundreds of dollars on unwanted charges.

Cellular (Honey Comb) Shades

So what types of Window treatments are best for insulating?

Cellular/Honeycomb shades are the number one pick to keep your home energy efficient. Not only are cellular shades great for insulating your home, they provide outstanding light control, and privacy.

We are located in Orlando Florida, the sunshine state. So we know all too well about how hot summers can be, and how expensive it is to run the air conditioning at full blast. By utilizing cellular (honeycomb) shades, we were able to cut our electricity bill significantly.

One thing to consider when purchasing Cellular or Honeycomb shades, is they do not offer the ability to tilt the blades to allow even a small amount of sunlight in your home. You can open them up fully and let the sun warm up your home, or you can close them fully to keep your home protected against the sun.

At the end of the day, Cellular shades are a great option! Whether you are looking for something that will look great, or something that can help you save a few extra bucks a month.

If Cellular shades are not for you, no need to worry. There are still options that can fit your exact needs. Below we will take a look at plantation shutters, and a few of their benefits.

Plantation Shutters

 Cellular shades are not the only window treatment that can help you save some money on your electric bill. Plantation Shutters are also a great option, with just as many benefits. Although slightly less protective, plantation shutters do a great job of keeping the hot sun out of your home, and keeping the cold or warm air inside your home. Plantation shutters are available in a variety of louver, panel and frame options, meaning you can fully customize the window treatment to match the interior of your home.

Vertical Blinds

If you are looking for something that can cover up the large opening on your sliding glass door, vertical blinds are a great option. When installed correctly, vertical blinds can act as a barrier to the outside world. Whether you are trying to keep the hot/cold air inside, or keep it out. Vertical blinds will help you accomplish that task.

When purchasing vertical blinds, you will need to make sure that they are made with the right material to help keep your home insulated. If you have questions regarding which material you should choose, feel free to contact us and we would be happy to help you out.
