Energy Efficient Window Coverings
Hunter Douglas is the industry leader in making a large energy savings difference at the window. Hunter Douglas invented the highly energy-efficient Duette® honeycomb shades In 1985 and continues to be the most efficient window treatment today. The latest innovation is the Duette Architella® honeycomb fabric what we like to call a honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb designed for even greater energy efficiency. You could loose as much as 50% of a home's heating and cooling energy through its windows without energy-efficient window treatments.
During the winter season, our windows allow much of our homes heating to escape through our windows while during our summer seasons, the same windows allow the outside heat to flow in your home. You can save on heating and cooling costs and reduce your energy consumption with a window treatment designed to provide insulation.
Solar Heat Control
During the winter months, the warmth provided by the suns solar energy helps heat your home but in the summer months, can cause a room to be overly uncomfortable and extremely hot which will cause air conditioning costs to sky rocket. Many of Hunter Douglas window treatment can actually help control solar heat by minimizing the amount that filters though during the summer and allowing heat into your home during the winter.
Daylighting is the practice of lighting rooms with natural light rather than artificial light. By drawing natural light into a room many of our window treatments reduce the need for other types of lighting, thereby reducing your energy use.
