Are you looking for ways to make your home more energy efficient? Did you know our Hunter Douglas window coverings not only help to keep your home cool in summer, they also keep heat in in the winter? This stylish solution can help reduce your heating bill, and also offer many other amazing features to keep your home comfortable, whatever the weather.
This article features the Duette Honeycomb Shade, as it is the forerunner in its energy efficiency, style and adaptability.
The main reason I’m featuring this blind at this time of year is: 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. Windows can be responsible for up to 50% of your home’s energy losses. Duette shades trap air in distinct pockets, creating exceptional insulation. Our latest innovation, Duette Architella®, features a honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb design for even greater energy efficiency.
This may be the key benefit for this time of year, but here are some more awesome benefits of these shades:
Solar Heat Control- 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- 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.
Premium Design & Style- Explore the richness of texture and warmth offered by The Alustra® Collection of Duette, a thoughtfully curated suite of exclusive design-inspired fabrics, textures, colours and hardware created to meet the expectations of leading designers and discerning consumers who seek the best in design.
Largest Selection in the Industry- Explore the widest selection of cellular pleat sizes, opacities, colours, textures and operating systems. Duette shades can also accommodate many specialty shaped windows, even tricky skylights.
Room Darkening- The LightLock™ system, the newest iteration from Duette, is the first operating system of its kind to offer unparalleled darkness. The secret lies within the patent-pending side channel design, optimized to absorb or deflect nearly all incoming light.
Durability- All of our high-performing fabrics are resistant to fading and will maintain their crisp, neat pleats over time.
Vertical Application- For doors that need extra insulation, the Duette Vertiglide™ operating system is the ideal option. It’s designed for vertical applications and uses the same fabrics as your horizontal Duette shades. Use one shade to cover the entire expanse of a sliding door, or cover the door with a split stack Vertiglide shade, with each side operating independently.
Sound Absorption- Improve your room’s acoustics while reducing the intensity of outside sound. Duette Honeycomb Shades absorb up to 70% of sound energy, thus creating a quieter, more tranquil room.
The Duette is only one of our many types of Hunter Douglas blinds. No matter what your style or needs, we can find the best window covering solution for you!
