Insulated Window Blinds are the most innovative window treatment idea to hit the window blinds and shades industry in the past 100 years. The concept is easy. They save a ton of money on utility bills, yet they can provide a view of anything a customer wants to print and place in their windows. They are cost-effective and provide a quick return-on-investment compared to installing triple pane windows.
“Our Insulated Window Blinds offer many benefits that are not offered by any other window blind, shade or shutter manufacturer,” said Robert Hoskins, Insulated Window Blinds’ Founder. “Just about every single type of leading-edge window treatment fails to completely seal a window from being susceptible to conduction, convection and radiation and thus they cannot provide an insulation R-value.”
“Unlike energy-efficient, argon gas-filled, triple pane glass windows that cost up to $700 to $1,000 per window to be installed and only yield an R-value of 5 or less, our Insulated Window Blinds are extremely affordable and provide a guaranteed R-value of 6 or more for around $10 per sq. ft. per window,” Hoskins continued. “And for the Do-It-Yourself crowd, our insulated window blinds offer one of easiest and most cost-effective energy saving projects that can be done for any home that needs to save money on electricity bills. All it takes is a tape measure and the ability to measure windows within an accuracy of 1/16 of an inch.”

Insulated Window Blinds are a very cost-effective solution for long-term energy savings for both low-income families that cannot afford expensive window upgrades as well as wealthy homeowners with 50 or more windows that need to be insulated simply to reduce a home’s carbon footprint during the winter’s coldest blizzards and summertime’s blazing heat waves.
Insulated Window Blinds are the perfect solution for home energy audit companies that need a low-cost solution to offer customers that cannot afford to pay for triple pane window installations. Ask anyone who performs home energy audits and they will confirm that windows are the weakest spot in every building’s energy envelope due to the high cost of window replacements.
Every home has at least one or two rooms that are hotter in the summer and colder in the winter than the rest of the house. Insulated Window Blinds will play a large roll in keeping the sun’s hot radiation from penetrating the home’s windows in the summer and insulate windows and keep heat from escaping through unprotected windows during the winter.
Triple pane windows are very expensive and they are not worth the investment based on the small amount of energy they save. Insulated Window Blinds are very cost-effective have a pay back period of only a few years versus 50 to 100 years for triple pane windows.
Interior decorators are already aware that all of their customers have a need to protect west windows from afternoon sun and north windows from wintertime blasts. Interior Decorators have two choices. They can either recommend one-sided insulated window inserts that can be hidden behind existing window blinds, shades, shutters or they can print two-sided photo-realistic pictures of honeycomb shades, plantation shutters or other types of window treatments from Hunter Douglas, Springs Window Fashions or Newell Rubbermaid that look just like the real thing for a much lower price plus they have an R-value of 6 to 13.
Most Interior Decorators recommend the combination of white mini-blinds on one side and a dark wooden blinds on the other side. The white mini-blind side faces the outside and is used to repel heat and UV rays during the summer not only because of the color, but also because underneath the picture of the white mini blinds is a reflective UV foil, which serves as a radiant heat barrier. During the winter the dark wooden blind side can be flipped to the outside position in order to absorb heat from the sun, heat the internal window’s space and help reduce window condensation.
For customers that live in apartment complexes, high-rise buildings or hotels that have windows with an ugly view of AC chillers, rusty water tanks or bright lights, Interior Decorators can offer customers Insulated Window Blinds with much more exotic views, which can be printed with any 300 dpi photograph of waterfalls, snow capped mountains, white sandy beaches, works of art, etc. The possibilities for windows with a view are limitless.
For example, every single hotel room window could be printed with a great view of the pool or the same view that can be enjoyed of the city’s skyline from the hotel’s private penthouse. When large conventions are in town, Insulated Window Blinds can be printed with concierge messages such as a map of local restaurants/bars or advertisements from convention sponsors that want to reach conference attendees or display a trade show panel discussion event calendar.
More and more hotel guests are selecting their hotel based on the merits of being green buy reducing energy consumption. Insulated Window Blinds would allow hotels to add another green bullet point to their marketing campaigns. And when guests check in, they can be offered a choice of selecting a room with Insulated Window Blinds that help the hotel lower its energy consumption and reduce its carbon footprint.
Insulated Window Blinds also have the benefit of being super easy to install. For windows with a windowsill, they slide onto a windowsill in one-second with zero work required. For windows without a windowsill, magnetic tape can be applied to the edges of the insulated window blind and then attached to another strip of magnetic tape on the wall, which forms an air tight seal around the entire window, which is a favorite choice for people who own manufactured mobile homes.
