Insulated Window Shades Save Money and Energy
ComforTrack Honeycomb Shades are possibly the best insulating shades on the market. 50% of heat loss or heat gain happens through windows. Replacing windows can be costly and require construction costs and the hiring of professionals to install them. This is why consumers are turning to window blinds to help insulate their homes. Insulated window blinds are easy to install.
With consumers being more environmentally minded, they are looking for ways to save energy. Installing new insulated window shades is the first step. Not only will insulated window shades protect against the elements, they create a comfortable living environment, giving owners the ability to control the amount of light that comes into a room at any time of day.
Harsh light can cause a strain on eyes and can fade out paint, wallpaper and furniture. However, in the winter, letting the sun's rays in during the day can actually help warm a house and closing them at night will help keep the warm air in.
Similarly, in the hot summer days, keeping window blinds closed during the day helps keep homes cool. Opening windows at night lets cool air in that can be trapped in the morning with insulated window shades. Using the natural elements to your benefit is one of the most cost effective ways to save money. Just as solar shades trap light and heat to power electricity, so can windows trap light and heat to warm your home.
Designed for maximum insulation, the ComforTrack Plus Energy Saving Sidetrack System provides a thermal performance rating up to five times greater than a standard single pane window. Multiple insulation barriers on this cell shade block cold air from coming in and warm air escaping in the winter and keeps homes cool in the summer. Sidetracks on each side of the blinds seal the edges of the insulated window shades while a foam seal between the headrail and the top of the window frame minimize any heat loss, saving energy.
Due to its energy efficiency, ComforTrack Plus Energy Saving side track insulation system is certified for federal tax credit for energy efficiency. ComforTrack Insulating Shades save money on energy bills and qualifying homeowners for a 30% tax credit up to a $1500.
