One of the most important things you can do for your home is energy efficient window coverings to help you save money in both summer and into months. Without energy-efficient window treatments, as much as 18% of a home’s heating and cooling energy can be lost through its windows. Many window coverings we offer provide window insulation, offering your home increased protection against heat loss during the winter, as well as minimizing the sun’s heat or “solar heat” during the summer.

This becomes a security benefit when you’re away from your home, the window coverings opening and closing or tilting will make your home seem occupied. Comfort and safety are benefits as well. Watching TV or viewing a computer without a glare on the screen can be achieved without having to get up to operate the window coverings instead you can run them from a remote or any device even while away from home with the Hunter Douglas Hub. No cords dangling anywhere provide a safe environment for kids and pets.

Another thing to keep in mind is it has been scientifically proven that heat is attracted to 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 window window treatments help insulate homes; helping reduce energy consumption, save on heating and cooling costs, and create a more comfortable environment. Sunlight or solar energy, may be desirable during the winter to help heat your home, but in the summer, it can make your home hot and uncomfortable—escalating air conditioning costs and stealing money right out of your pockets. Many window coverings help reduce the issues associated with solar heat by allowing it into your home in the winter and minimizing the amount that comes in during the summer months.
