Most Energy-Efficient Window Treatments to Cover your Windows
A Better View Decor enjoys helping people identify their personal style with window treatments of any kind. We have learned over the years that people want products with advanced technology and we listened. ABVD continues to educate all clients that you can use the sun to harness energy in your home with certain products and these products will save you money and keep people comfortable all summer long!
What are the best products to combat the hot summer months you ask?
Well, here’s the scoop: The Attachments Energy Rating Council (AERC)’s mission is to rate, label and certify the energy performance of window attachments. AERC provides verified, third-party energy performance ratings which help eliminate consumer confusion about competing energy-saving claims. Hunter Douglas is the first manufacturer to earn a national energy performance rating and certification for interior window covering products through the AERC.
In a cool climate (or winter), AERC rated and certified window treatments can:
- Help keep interiors warmer
- Reduce heat from escaping
- Use free sunlight to warm spaces
- Eliminate chilly drafts
- Lower heating energy costs
In a warm climate (or summer), AERC rated and certified window treatments can:
- Help keep interiors cooler
- Block solar heat gain
- Minimize harsh sunlight and glare
- Reduce hot outside air from entering
- Lower cooling energy costs
Here in Colorado, we can experience both warm and cool climates in just 24 hours, so learning how to use the environment we live in can save you money on your cooling and heating bills.
Here is a list of the most energy-efficient way to cover your windows in Colorado:
1) Hunter Douglas Duette honeycomb shades
An innovative window treatment that looks beautiful and insulates your home all year round, Duette® Honeycomb Shades were the first cellular shades, specially engineered to provide energy efficiency at the window in both cold and warm climates. Their specially engineered honeycomb construction traps air in distinct pockets, which creates insulation that can help lower your energy consumption and energy bills.
Decorate every kind of window you have—even tricky skylights and unusually shaped panes—with Duette. Our signature honeycomb shades are one of our most versatile options and beautify every kind of interior.
Introduce innovative, streamlined design into your home with our Applause® Honeycomb Shades. The only honeycomb shade with a double-cell construction, Applause Honeycomb Shades are available in an edited selection of fabrics, colors and operating systems.
Unique to Applause shades is the double-cell construction, which offers even more insulation than our single honeycomb. This design traps air in distinct pockets to help keep your house cool in the summer and warm in the winter.
3) Hunter Douglas Sonnettes Innovative cellular roller shades
There’s more than meets the eye with our Sonnette™ Cellular Roller Shades.
This cellular roller shade looks like a simple roller shade but is actually crafted from two layers of fabric that diffuse light and create a soft glow at your window.
That undetectable second layer helps make these cellular roller shades energy-efficient.
Let’s get together to investigate this option in your home or office? It is a great day to save money and add innovation to your space!
