How Do Cellular Shades in Maple Valley Work in Your Home?

You may have decided that you want to get shades for your window treatments. Maple Valley cellular shades can be beautiful and effective, while being budget friendly. With so many different shade options, it’s easy to confuse them. You’ll want to know exactly how cellular shades will work in your home. Here’s a look at everything you need to know.

The Term ‘Cellular’ Is for the Cells

The shades have two pieces of material that zig-zag in opposite directions. This helps to create cells between the pieces of material, that can have a honeycomb look. Not only are these cells where the term “cellular” come from, but they also give the alternative name “honeycomb shades.”

The cells are the important fixture that help you qualify for the 2011 US energy tax credit. Too many people lose heat through their windows and doors. Even with well-fitting windows, you can lose heat through the glass. The shades are able to stop the heat from escaping. The cells trap the heat and circulate it back into the home.

This isn’t just good for the tax credit. You will also keep the cost of your heating bills down. Since the heat goes back into your room, there’s less need to have the heating on throughout the window. You can turn the heating off for longer periods, as the room won’t get as cold as quickly.

Different Cell Structures for Better Benefits

It’s possible to get single cells, double cells, and triple cells in your cellular shades in Maple Valley. Each one will increase in thickness, offering different heating benefits to your home. Of course, the triple cells will cost more to install in your home, but you can benefit from the extra savings in your home.

Thicker shades can also help to offer more lighting benefits. The material of cellular shades tends to be thinner and more paper-like than other blinds. If you want the blackout effect, you’ll likely need to consider triple cell shades for the windows.

Pull Up and Release Down

The Maple Valley cellular shades work very similar to solar and roller shades. You pull on a cord to pull the shade up when you want to let all the light into your home. When you want to close the shades, you pull on the cord to release it down. The cord can be separated into two sections, so you pull on one depending on the way you want to move the shade, or it can be on a roller like with roller blinds.

The honeycombs will stack, helping to take up less space than some other shades. The open look is almost like slat shades, in the way they stack one on top of the other.

Cellular shades in Maple Valley are extremely beneficial for energy saving. They are among the best options for preventing heat from escaping through the window. This offers similar benefits during the summer when heat comes through from the outside. If you’re looking to reduce your heating bills, cellular shades are certainly worth the consideration.
