Hunter Douglas is an industry leader making big energy saving differences at the window. Did you know as much as 50% of a home’s heating and cooling energy can be lost through its windows? When you live someplace hot, like South Florida, who wouldn’t want to save on their energy bill? Hunter Douglas products think about the impact all their window fashions can make to help conserve energy. Here are some of our top picks of energy-efficient window coverings great for residents in South Florida.
Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades
In response to the energy crisis of the late 1970s, Hunter Douglas invented the highly energy-efficient Duette® Honeycomb Shades. The latest innovation is the Duette Architella® Honeycomb Shade which features a honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb design for even greater energy efficiency. The Architella collection is a great option for South Florida because it reduces unwanted solar heat in the summer time by up to 80% and cut heat loss in the winter by up to 40%, all while maintaining the benefits of natural daylight.
In addition, the Hunter Douglas Duette® Shades offer a wealth of choices for nature-inspired energy efficiency. The original single and double honeycomb Duette® shades come in multiple cell sizes, a horizontal or Vertiglide™ vertical orientation, and a range of light-control options from sheer to opaque. While normal shades go bottom up, there is a shade option that goes top down. A practical alternative for bathrooms if you want light and privacy. Allowing for better temperature control across seasons, the honeycomb shades are a smart, energy-efficient choice.
Hunter Douglas Roller Shades
Many of our southern customers are fond of the Hunter Douglas Designer Roller Shades. They combine the ease and simplicity of a roller shade with a wide selection of fabric choices—sheers to opaques, patterns to textures, and traditional solid colors. The roller shades are simple, energy-efficient, UV Ray efficient and come in different percentages: 14%, 10%, 5%, 3%, 1% 0% (black out). The various designer fabric percentages keep harmful UV rays at bay, protecting your furnishings from the sun. In this case, 1% fabrics block 99% of the UV ray and heat. Invest in unsurpassed quality and set a new standard for you home.
