Compare Cellular Shades

Compare our shades, not all cellular shades are built the same!

Our cellular window shades are so energy efficient, they will pay for themselves over in time! We’ve seen that in a Vermont without any air conditioning, these shades take about two years to pay for themselves. If you factor in air conditioning, they would pay for themselves in less than two years. If you reside in a different part of the country where you have greater heating and cooling costs, your savings will be even more! Not only will they help you save money on your energy bills, but they also provide you with efficient noise reduction and insulation from hot and cold weather.
