Window Coverings, Energy Efficiency Through Stylish Convenience
Energy conservation continues to be an important consideration in homes and offices, both as we take a more active role in mitigating the effects of climate change, and as we become more aware of our heating and cooling costs. One of the areas people often neglect are window coverings.
Up to 30% of the heating and cooling energy in the home can be lost through the windows.
By closing window treatments during the day in the summer, you block the heat from the sun, preserving the cooling energy of your air conditioning equipment.
In the winter, opening the window treatments during the day will give you the added benefit of the sun’s solar energy to help heat your home, while closing them at night will provide an added layer of insulation to help maintain the stored heat inside.
Hunter Douglas offers a wide variety of window treatments that are stylish, functional, and energy efficient. Combine powered window treatments with a control system to have your window treatments open and close on a schedule you set, making comfort and energy efficiency effortless and automatic.
