Energy Efficiency with Hunter Douglas Shades

Energy efficient cellular shades

Saving energy is a priority for many people when it comes to their homes or other indoor spaces. Whether your intention is to save money or the planet, cutting energy consumption is beneficial to everyone. One simple way to save energy with little effort is by updating your home or space with Hunter Douglas’ energy efficient shades. Energy efficient shades are an easy way to update your home, and are cheaper than other energy saving technologies like solar panels or new appliances.

Designed with saving energy in mind, Hunter Douglas’ cellular shades trap and lock air in pockets created by the shade’s cellular pattern. The trapped air is then used to keep rooms cool in the summer and warm in the winter. These shades are also nothing short of beautiful with their modern and simple honeycomb-shaped design, and come in a variety of styles and colors to match any room.Hunter Douglas’ cellular shades are also available in a horizontal and vertical orientations, so they can accompany any window, not matter the size.

Another gorgeous and energy efficient option in shades is an elegant Roman Shade. Hunter Douglas’ Vignette Modern Roman Shades use similar technology as cellular shades; they trap air in their design to create better insulation and stop energy loss from windows. However, Roman Shades do not have a cellular shape, and are instead constructed of soft fabric folds. The Vignette Modern Roman Shades are available in a variety of colors that each complement the shade’s supple fabric. For varying levels of light control, you can also choose how opaque the shade’s fabric is.If you’re hoping for more than just light filtration, some fabrics even have noise-blocking technology to lessen outside noise, creating the perfect space for relaxation.

A third option of energy efficient shading is Hunter Douglas’ Sonnette™ Cellular Roller Shades. This shade falls between a roman shade and a cellular shade with its roller design and large, cellular composition. The Sonnette™ collection is composed of honeycomb-shaped cellular layer that lay similarly to the folds of a Roman Shade, but have a more defined structure, like a cellular shade. These screen shades are also cord-free and easily roll up and down, making it easy to accommodate your home’s natural light.
