windows are usually responsible for the greatest amount of heat loss
in your home-even if you have storm windows or the newer dual pane
thermal windows. As a result the window covering you choose has a
tremendous impact on energy consumption. The unique Warm Window
insulated curtain system dramatically increases the R-value of your
windows and makes your home more comfortable in any climate any time
of year. These shades reduce heat loss through windows by more than
80% in the winter and reduces solar heat gain in the summer by up to
79%. You save on expensive heating and cooling costs while saving
The Warm Window
System The Warm Window fabric consists of four layers of
different fabric quilted together in 4"-wide lengthwise channels
designed to reduce the flow of energy through your window glass. The
Lining with fabric protector
High density needled holo fibers
Reflective polyethylene moisture vapor barrier
Metallized mylar with air-trapping fibers
cover the side of your Warm Window shade that faces the room with a
decorative fabric of your choice. Choose a cover fabric that is
tightly woven, of light to medium weight, and made of cotton or a
cotton/polyester blend. Fabrics with fabric protector are an
excellent choice for window coverings. Avoid highly textured or pile
fabrics and loosely woven or stretch fabrics. You should also avoid
fabrics with horizontal stripes as they may interfere visually with
the folds in the shade.
The system is complete with a hook and loop
seal achieved from sewing Velcro® strips to the seams of
the shade and affixing Velcro® to the window frame or wall.
How does this system work? Warm
Window insulated shades are carefully engineered to combat all four
major causes of heat loss.
Conduction is reduced by trapped air spaces between the fibers
and layers of insulated fabric.
Infiltration is reduced by the impervious polyethylene and
tight hook and loop edge seal.
Convection is reduced by the hook and loop edge seal.
Radiation is reduced by the reflective mylar which reflects
radiant heat back into your home and also reflects away solar gain
What is the
R-Value The effectiveness of any material in preventing
energy from flowing through it is defined in terms of R-value. The
higher the R-value of a given material, the greater its insulating
capacity. This chart illustrates some R-value comparisons.
A 3/8" diameter round or oval, steel or aluminum weight
bar is required at the bottom of the shade to give it rigid
stability. The Warm Window weight bar consists of pipe
sections and rods that slip inside the pipe. You can join
sections of the weight bar by staggering the joints of each
pipe and rod.
The only items you need to complete
assembly are Warm Window fabric, decorative cover fabric, and hook and loop tape.
