The main cause of heat gain in summer and heat loss in winter is uncovered glass windows and doors. Uncovered glass windows and doors act as “large holes” in the home, which can cause heat transfer and contribute to a high level of energy loss, resulting in reduced effectiveness of your home’s heating and cooling. By covering your glass windows and doors with Honeycomb Blinds, you can protect your home against heat loss in winter and unwanted solar heat gain in summer, creating a more comfortable indoors environment all year round.
Veneta Honeycomb Blinds, also referred to as Cellular Blinds, are made with a clever cellular-structured fabric that traps air within the cells to create layers of insulation [a similar principle to double glazed windows]. Whilst the Honeycomb Blind cell structure is working to trap the air within its cells, it is also adding a layer of protection to your windows and doors. Honeycomb Blinds in the winter months work to keep warm air in and cool air out; while in the summer months block heat from entering the home to keep the air cool inside.
The appliances that keep your home cool in summer and warm in winter generally use the most electricity – on average 40% of your total energy use. Veneta Honeycomb Blinds can significantly reduce your annual home heating and cooling energy costs and lessen your carbon footprint.
VenetaHoneycomb Blinds are available in a wide range of models to accommodate different window and door types. They also come in both single and double cell designs, which simply means either one or two layers of cells. The double cell creates a double barrier, making it harder for air to travel through. For the best insulating blind, choose a double cell blind with a blockout fabric. The blockout fabric has a foil lining on the inside of the cell, which creates yet another layer of protection for your home by completely blocking out sunlight. The Honeycomb Blind cell structure also helps to dampen noise, making them desirable for homes with hard flooring; and for those living on a busy street.
