Energy Efficiency at the windows in Salt Lake City, Utah

Hunter Douglas products help conserve energy at the window in these three important ways:

Insulation In winter months, your home heating escapes to the outdoors through your windows while in the summertime, the outside heat flows into your home through these same windows. With window treatments that provide insulation, you can reduce energy consumption, save on heating and cooling costs, and create a more comfortable atmosphere.

Solar Heat Control The warmth provided by the sun, its solar energy, may be desirable during the winter to help heat your home, but in the summer, it can make a room overly hot and uncomfortable—driving up air conditioning costs. Many Hunter Douglas window fashions help to control solar heat by allowing it into your home in the winter and minimizing the amount that comes in during the summer.

Daylighting Daylighting is the practice of lighting rooms with natural light rather than artificial light.

Spring Colors

With a change in season comes a shift in weather, refreshed attire, and most importantly - a new color palette. Each season has it’s own feeling, its own smell, and its own colors. Whether through fashion or d├ęcor, the persona of Spring is represented every year through the hues that we choose to emphasize. 
What makes Spring colors? Well, look around. As the temperature gets warmer, “cold” colors funnel in. It’s the lighter blue of the sky, the sweeter orange of the tropics, the romantic purple of the violet flowers in bloom. It’s the pastel yellow, zesty lime green, and blossom rose with a pop of magenta!  Spring colors represent revival and rejuvenation. As ambassadors of style and design, we camouflage ourselves by highlighting mother nature’s greatest shades (of color). These colors can be used creatively to brighten any room.
