Energy Efficiency with Hunter Douglas Shades

Hunter Douglas does innovation like no other. With sleek, beautiful designs and light filtering solutions, Hunter Douglas window treatments meet any need. They take it a step further by designing styles that are energy efficient for your home. Blind and Shutter Gallery of Nashville offers this blog to help you learn more about this great innovation in window treatments.

Almost fifty percent of your home’s cooling and heating is lost through your windows, wasting the money you spend with the intention of making your home comfortable. Hunter Douglas has designed window fashions that put this money back in your pocket with cellular shades. The innovative cellular construction of these shades is the key to their energy efficiency. Open pockets, or cells, make up the entire shade, constructed out of light filtering fabrics. These pockets store air and thus provide a layer of insulation between the sun streaming into your windows and your home, making it difficult for hot or cool air to travel from one side to the other. This helps keep your home at a desired temperature, all while providing the light filtration you need. Hunter Douglas cellular shades prevent heat loss by nearly forty percent and help reduce solar heat by close to eighty percent.

Hunter Douglas has a variety of shades with cellular construction for optimal energy efficiency. Honeycomb shades are a complete line of shades designed with energy efficiency in mind. The cellular design is beautiful to look at, and there are many distinct styles to select from. Duette® is a staple choice with options for single or double cellular pockets, with two honeycombs in one, resulting in double the energy efficiency. To further your choices in this shade, Duette® is available in multiple cell sizes. For more insulation at your window, Duette® Architella® Trielle™ boasts six layers of fabric, five air pockets, and a 1.5-inch pleat size, giving your home twenty percent more energy efficiency than other cellular shades. All cellular shades are available in both vertical and horizontal orientations so you can cover any expanse of glass where energy might pass through. For energy efficiency in a Roman shade, Vignette® Architella® also traps air with a backing with pockets. This shade has 4 and 6-inch pleat sizes for a modern appearance.

All of these energy saving shades work with most operating systems available from Hunter Douglas, like LiteRise® for easy operation. Further, they can be hung in top-down/bottom-up orientation to target your control of light and energy and can be customized in a range of colors and textures.
