Other Ways to Improve Energy Efficiency Through Window Treatments
Side Panels & Draperies
An elegant way to help prevent light gaps, while adding another layer of insulation to your windows. Heavier, more opaque fabrics help keep rooms warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer.
These stylish window treatments deliver insulating properties along with an air barrier to help keep your space more comfortable all year round.
Motorization and Smart Home Technology
The hottest trend in window treatments, motorization makes it easy to shield the interior of your home from the sun’s damaging rays. Schedule your blinds or shades to open or close at pre-set times or even temperatures to lessen the sun’s impact and protect your furnishings & flooring from sun damage, or to keep the cold out during the winter months. Seasonally optimize the schedule to reduce heating and cooling loads while maximizing natural light and home comfort. Many window treatments are now equipped with smart technology, allowing you to control your blinds through an app or voice technology. Your home’s heating and cooling system will thank you through lower energy bills.
Don’t forget sliding glass doors!
Window treatments such as Duette Architella Honeycomb Shades from Hunter Douglas are available with the Vertiglide® system, engineered for vertical applications. Using the same fabrics as found in cellular shades, these beautiful shades provide an additional layer of insulation to improve energy efficiency.
