Energy Efficiency at the windows in Salt Lake City, Utah

Up to 50% of your home's heating and cooling energy can be lost through  your windows.

Hunter Douglas is an industry leader in making a big energy savings difference at the window.  In 1985, they invented the highly energy-efficient 
Duette® honeycomb shades in response to the energy crisis of the late 1970s. Today, they continue to think about the impact all of their window fashions can make. Without energy-efficient window treatments, as much as 50% of a home's heating and cooling energy can be lost through its windows. 

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

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 is the practice of lighting rooms with natural light rather than artificial light.
By drawing natural light into a room many of our window treatments reduce the need for other types of lighting, thereby reducing your energy use.
