Gorell and in the glass blinds

DoggydocNovember 7, 2012

I had a salesman say that in the glass blinds destroyed the energy efficiency of a window. Just wanted to see if that is actually the case. Though about putting these on the few west facing windows I have.

Also does anyone know if gorell has triple pane glass and if this option is available with between the glass blinds to regain the energy efficiency. Thanks

Blinds in the glass are not available with triple pane.
While the blinds do affect the type of low-e used and eliminate the use of argon or krypton gas, it does not "destroy" the efficiency of a window as long as they blinds are used strategically. If they are not, it can indeed have a profoundly negative effect.
