Our customers choose Hunter Douglas window treatments and systems because they value quality and performance, which makes sense because Hunter Douglas is the best brand in the business.
But did you know that Hunter Douglas products can actually help you save money on your energy bills, too?
It began in the 1970’s, when America experienced an energy crisis. Energy bills were skyrocketing, and the team at Hunter Douglas started realizing the importance of making their products economical.
So, they got to work, and in 1985, they released the Duette honeycomb shades to their line of products. The Duette shades worked to decrease the amount of radiation that made its way into the home, thus lowering the need to cool the home
Since then, Hunter Douglas has continued to refine its proven system for offering energy-efficient window treatments. The latest innovation in their line is the Duette Architella honeycomb fabric that offers even greater energy efficiency through a clever use of honeycomb layers, a “honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb” system.
How Hunter Douglas Window Treatments Conserve Energy
There are three main ways your high-end window treatments help to save money:
- Insulation: During the winter, you want to insulate your home to keep heat in, which means your HVAC doesn’t have to work as hard to heat your space. During the summer, you want to insulate from outside heat making it into the home.
- Solar heat control: The sun’s warmth is the number one cause of high energy bills during the summer. During the winter, it helps, but during the summer, you want to control the amount of solar energy that enters your home. So, Hunter Douglas products manage solar heat for the appropriate time of year.
- Daylighting: Finally, you can reduce energy bills by being able to use less artificial light by using more natural light to illuminate your home. Hunter Douglas window treatments can draw natural light into a room, thereby decreasing the need for electrical lighting.
