It is finally meteorological spring (and almost Summer at that), but as any seasoned New Englander knows, that doesn’t mean a whole lot in this part of the country. We could still get another snowstorm or ice storm before we are finally out of the woods. But, thankfully, once it gets here, New England in the warm weather is almost impossible to beat. However, for these next few weeks when the weather is likely to fluctuate wildly, you may notice something else fluctuating: your energy bill. If you want to find a unique way to keep your energy bill in check, keep reading to see why cellular shades are perfect for Fairfield County, CT homes.
All About Cellular Shades
Cellular shades are a truly unique window covering. They are so unique, in fact, that they were specifically designed by window treatment innovators Hunter Douglas to respond to the energy crisis of the 1970’s. These fantastic window coverings are created by layering high quality fabrics in such a way as to leave open cells or “honeycombs” of air within the shade. These honeycombs serve to trap air within these cells and to keep it from either entering or leaving through your window. A not-insignificant-amount of your home’s heating and cooling can escape from your windows, so these shades add an extra layer of insulation to your home’s most vulnerable assets – and keep your home’s climate more consistent and comfortable. A more consistent indoor temperature can help you save money on heating and cooling.
Styling Your Home with Cellular Shades
Just because cellular shades are useful doesn’t mean they can’t also be beautiful. Hunter Douglas has always loved finding the marriage between style and usability, and with cellular shades, you can find just that. Whether you love the simplicity of a roller shade, or the structured design of Hunter Douglas’s classic honeycomb shade, there is sure to be a Hunter Douglas cellular shade that will fit your sense of taste and your home’s décor style.
