Bali® Blinds Introduces Energy Calculator to Show Consumers How Much
Cellular Shades Can Help Them Save
Baliblinds.com has added a new energy calculator to show consumers how much they can save
on energy bills by choosing energy-efficient Cellular Shades for their home.
Middleton, WI (PRWEB) March 28, 2010 -- Windows are considered the weak spot in the home’s insulation, as
glass doesn’t effectively slow the transfer of heat — meaning heat is going out in the winter and coming in during
the summer. Cellular Shades can help insulate the windows and provide significant energy savings. To help
consumers take advantage of this savings, Bali has launched a new “Energy Calculator” on baliblinds.com that
tells consumers how much money can be saved on their energy bill each year by choosing Cellular Shades.
Cellular Shade window treatments, like the ones offered by Bali, provide the ultimate in window covering energy
savings. By trapping air in the cell pockets, the shades act as an efficient insulator, similar to how insulation
batting works in ceilings and walls. There are single-cell and double-cell shades available. Double Cell Cellular
Shades feature two pockets that trap air and offer the maximum amount of insulation.
Tracy Williams of Rainier, Oregon, has experienced the savings first-hand. “We moved into this house just over
a year ago and the first heating bill for the month of December was a real shocker. In the living room alone I have
12 floor-to-ceiling dual-glazed windows. It was clear that in order to cut heating costs the windows would need
some sort of energy-efficient thermal window coverings. I chose Bali since the shades offered a clean, sleek look,
whether up or down, and the way the double cells are designed seemed to be more efficient than other brands. We
received our bill in December and were pleased to see the savings. Because of Bali’s Double Cell Cellular
Shades, our December heating bill alone was lowered by $40.41 compared to the heating bill a year ago.”
