It is important that you should keep your house insulated. The foremost benefit you derive by achieving this is to save a good amount of money on energy bill. Though you need to take many steps for achieving this, the main thing to be done is to do a few changes to your window treatments. By doing appropriate changes to your window treatments, you can definitely achieve the aim of insulating your house. The best window treatment to save your energy bill by insulating your house is to opt for honeycomb blinds. Honeycomb Blinds
Honeycomb blinds do this task effectively and efficiently because of their thickness and design. Though any other blind can also do the task of filtering incoming heat and light, honeycomb blinds offer an extra benefit. The benefit is that the filter can be set by yourself. You have single, double and triple honeycombs and you can choose the one that has the thickness you want.
Another point is that according to the age of the windows, you should choose the honeycombs. A ten year old window can go well with triple honeycomb cell blinds. These blinds are advised because they can be three times more effective in insulating this ten year old window. If you use a single honeycomb, the end result will not be that effective. You should remember that more the number of cells on the honeycombs, the heavier they become. Therefore, it is better to choose a honeycomb with one or two cells if the window you have is quite a large one.
You should also focus on the design part. The design must not only be highly attractive but the honeycomb should fulfill your functional expectations. The cells of the honeycomb keep the air trapped and this is the function that may increase the insulation. Since there are three cells in a triple cell honeycomb, there is a bigger scope for the air to get trapped in the extra two cells than in a single honeycomb blind.
Honeycomb blinds are liked by many for their aesthetic looks also. If you want to regulate the light in a room and if you want sufficient light, you can opt for a one-cell honeycomb. But, with a three-cell honeycomb, you will have less light and the whole ambiance of the room will turn out to be a romantic one. While selecting the honeycombs, you must choose the colors that go well with the existing decor and color of the walls of the room.
You also get many models of these honeycomb blinds. Vertical, cordless, cellular, blackout and double, single and triple cell honeycombs are there. You should choose the appropriate model that suits your requirements. These honeycombs can also used in the arch of the house to provide insulation and the right amount of light.
