How Cellular Blinds Can Boost Your Home’s Energy Efficiency

Did you know that up to 30% of total heat loss from a home occurs through uncovered windows? Windows let heat escape during cooler months and allow solar heat gains during warmer months. Many homes have inefficient single or double-pane windows. At a fraction of the cost of window replacement, energy-efficient window attachments like interior and exterior shading or secondary glazing offer a cost-effective and user-friendly way to save money on energy bills year round.

Cellular blinds like Luxaflex Duette Shades offer the highest level of energy efficiency compared with any other window covering. The revolutionary Duette Architella fabric range features a double honeycomb cell construction with four layers of fabric and three distinct insulating air pockets. These pockets trap air to provide incredible energy efficiency comfort throughout the home all year round.

Luxaflex Duettes are one of very few product that are so insulating that they can be given an R-Value. A product’s “R-value” is a measurement of its ability to resist heat flow. In a home during winter, R-values indicate the ability of walls, roofs and windows to keep the heat inside. The higher its R-value, the more insulation a product provides. A fully-recessed, reveal-mounted Duette Architella Shade can increase the R-value of a 3mm single glazed window from 0.13 to 0.78, reducing the heat transfer through that window by 65%. Independent modelling has shown that this in turn can reduce an average home’s heating costs by up to 43%.
