COOL Yourself with Insulating Shades

Posted on: July 7, 2011

Feel like you’re frying??

Everyone discusses the “insulating” power of cellular shades in winter = they keep the cold drafts off! But, guess what? cellular shades insulate against the hot rays of the sun too!

Imagine this scenario: you’re sitting in your favorite chair beside the window, or under the skylight, and the sun’s just beating down on you. Do you feel hot? You bet! Now if you have a window shade, lower it so that the beating sun is just a dapple of light on the other side. Don’t you instantly feel cooler?! And you feel cooler because you ARE cooler, the shade’s insulation power is working to keep the heat outdoors, where it belongs. This, in the long-run, saves you $$$ = feeling cooler means you keep the thermostat at its present level instead of turning it down.

A bonus: how green a solution is this? You save money and also energy!
