Hunter Douglas is an industry leader in making window treatments that are energy-efficient. In 1985, the company invented Duette honeycomb shades in response to the energy crisis that hit in the late 70s. The latest innovation, Duette Architella honeycomb shades, is even more energy-efficient because it features a “honeycomb within a honeycomb” design.
Today, Hunter Douglas still continues to think about the impact that their window treatments can make. Without energy-saving fashions, as much as 50 percent of your home’s cooling and heating energy can be lost through windows.
Hunter Douglas products help to conserve energy in 3 important ways:
- Insulation: During winter, heat escapes through windows, but with window treatments that actually provide insulation, you can use less energy, save on your heating costs, and enjoy a more comfortable atmosphere.
- Solar Heat Control: The sun’s warmth may be desirable during the winter, but in the summer, it can make a room very uncomfortable and hot – driving cooling costs upwards. Hunter Douglas window fashions minimize the amount of heat that comes through.
- Daylighting: This is the practice of lighting a room with natural, rather than artificial, light. By drawing natural light in, many Hunter Douglas window treatments reduce the need for other sources of lighting and, in so doing, conserve energy.
