Three Ways to Save Energy
Installing Hunter Douglas window fashions in your home can reduce heating, cooling, and lighting energy needs in three significant ways:
- Reduce heat flow (heat loss and heat gain) through the windows.
- Control solar heat (heat energy from the sun) by allowing it in winter but reducing it in summer.
- Enhance daylighting (the use of natural light) by diffusing and dispersing sunlight deep into a room.
In winter months, your home heating escapes to the outdoors through your windows while in the summertime, the outside heat flows into your home through these same windows. With window treatments that provide insulation, you can reduce energy consumption, save on heating and cooling costs, and create a more comfortable atmosphere.
Solar Heat Control
The warmth provided by the sun, its solar energy, may be desirable during the winter to help heat your home, but in the summer, it can make a room overly hot and uncomfortable—driving up air conditioning costs. Many Hunter Douglas window fashions help to control solar heat by allowing it into your home in the winter and minimizing the amount that comes in during the summer.
Daylighting is the practice of lighting rooms with natural light rather than artificial light.
By drawing natural light into a room many of our window treatments reduce the need for other types of lighting, thereby reducing your energy use.
When you choose Hunter Douglas for your windows, you’re doing more than saving energy resources and money. You’re also enhancing the look of your home with remarkable beauty and style at the window. And by installing the most respected and sought-after brand, you’re increasing the resale value of your home, as well. Isn’t it nice when doing the right thing provides so many rewards?
