Without energy-efficient window treatments, as much as 50% of a home's heating and cooling energy can be lost through its windows. All Hunter Douglas window fashions provide window insulation, offering your home increased protection against heat loss during the winter, as well as minimizing the sun's heat or "solar heat" during the summer. More specifically, here's how Hunter Douglas products help conserve energy at the window in these three significant ways.
Our window fashions reduce heat flow (both heat loss and heat gain) through the windows. By using thicker fabrics or small pockets, our window treatments trap air and prevent it from flowing freely through your windows. This insulation keeps your home at a more comfortable temperature, so you won’t have to rely as heavily on your heating and air conditioning units. Additionally, motorized window treatments can close during the hottest parts of the day to keep excess sunlight out in the summer and open during the warmest parts to let it in during the winter, giving you a complete energy-efficient solution for every season.
Our window fashions enhance daylighting (the use of natural light) by diffusing and dispersing sunlight deep into a room, reducing your need for electrical lighting. This diffusion can also help reduce glare, so you can read, work, or watch TV without having to worry that the sun will interrupt you.
