Most people know that their window treatments will add improved style to their space and allow them to control natural light in their homes. But not many people think about the ways that their window treatments can save them money by being energy-efficient. There’s quite a bit of energy that escapes through people’s windows every year, but you can mitigate this effect by adding energy-efficient shades to your windows. Plus, when you choose energy-efficient shades from Hunter Douglas, you can enjoy plenty of other benefits as well. Read on to discover the benefits of energy-efficient shades.
Every kind of window covering will add a small degree of insulation for your windows, but one of the benefits of energy-efficient shades is that they are specifically designed to block air and prevent heat transfer through your uninsulated windows. The original design was Duette® Honeycomb Shades, which feature a sleek shape made out of small hexagonal cells.
These little air pockets effectively keep your home at the right temperature without sending your energy bills skyrocketing. This works both in the winter and summer since the cells can keep warm air outside as well. Plus, thanks to available features like Duette Architella®, you can layer even more insulating cells for further energy-savings.
Another benefit of choosing custom energy-efficient shades from Hunter Douglas is that you can add stylish shades to any window you can think of. There’s no shortage of custom shapes you can choose for your shades, including arches, sliding-glass doors, and angles. One unique attribute of Duette® Honeycomb Shades is that you can add them to skylights. This means that you can adjust light on every window while adding insulation to windows that are out of reach. And thanks to the available PowerView® Automation operating system, you won’t have any trouble adjusting your skylight shades at any moment.
You can also add Duolite® to your energy-efficient shades for even more options for light control. Using a third head rail, you can instantly switch between two different opacities for your shades. You can also open them up all the way to let in the full view.
While you may be worried that picking window treatments for practical reasons will leave you with dull-looking decor, you can put those worries aside. When you add Duette® Honeycomb Shades to your windows, you’ll love the simple shape and beautiful textures that they bring to your windows. And you can customize the overall look of your windows by choosing from different fabrics and colors. These are just a few more benefits of adding energy-efficient shades to your home.
There are also other exciting designs for custom energy-efficient shades you can choose from as well. The Solera® Soft Shades collection provides a luxurious feel for your home thanks to the curved cells that create a Roman shade look. You can also bring sleek style to your windows with custom Sonnette™ Cellular Roller Shades.
