I am pretty sure everyone wants to save energy in their home. Saving energy is good for the environment and saves money. Read on to see what Hunter Douglas says about saving energy in their “The Art of Window Dressing” book.

“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 window fashions provide varying levels of window insulation, offering your home increased protection against heat loss during the winter, while helping to keep it cooler during the summer. So, while attractive window fashions help create beautiful indoor environments, they are also designed to be energy-efficient, making every setting more comfortable – for relaxing, working, sleeping, gathering together, living.”

“More specifically, here’s how Hunter Douglas products help conserve energy at the window, in three significant ways:”

INSULATING
“It’s a scientific fact that heat moves toward cold. In winter months, indoor heating moves toward and escapes through windows to the outdoors, while in summertime the outside heat flows into your home through these same windows. Many Hunter Douglas window fashions help insulate homes, resulting in lower energy consumption and increased savings on heating and cooling costs.”

USING SOLAR ENERGY
“The warmth provided by the sun, its solar energy, may be desirable during the winter to help heat your home, but it can make a room overly hot and uncomfortable in the summer, while driving up air conditioning costs as well. Many Hunter Douglas products are designed to reduce the amount of solar energy that passed through the window to become heat.”

HARNESSING DAYLIGHT
“With Hunter Douglas window fashions, you can control how much natural light comes into your room, often reducing the need for artificial light. Our sheers and other select styles actually diffuse light as it enters and help to draw it deeper int the room, reducing your energy needs for other types of lighting. And by tilting the louvers, slats, vanes, blinds and panels, you can also direct incoming light where it’s need most.”
