Going green is more than just a trend. Homeowners spend, on average, $5,500 per year on energy bills. Making energy-efficient home improvements does save you loads of money in the long run, but it is also a simple way to live more sustainably. Deciding to go green is great, but where do you start? Installing energy efficient blinds, shades, sun control window tinting and other treatments is a cost-effective way to save money on those high energy bills. During the warm summer months, block out major heat from the sun and keep your home cool without running up your energy costs.

Hunter Douglas has been making energy saving advancements in window coverings since the 1980’s. Created in 1985, Duette Honeycomb Shades trap air in its cellular shape to prevent the 50% of heating and cooling energy to be lost through windows. Although this product heats and cools your home efficiently, it’s also a decorative window covering. The product comes in numerous cell sizes, in horizontal or vertical, in addition to light-control options from sheer to opaque coloring.
Duette Architella Honeycomb Shades by Hunter Douglas are the same honeycomb design featured in the Duette Honeycomb shades complete with next-level energy efficiency. With six layers of fabric and five insulating air pockets, the honeycomb-within-honeycomb shade offers energy savings in both warm and cold weather. In fact, this energy saving solution is 20% more efficient than the original Architella shades. The shades also diffuse natural light for increased brightness so you can enjoy a well-lit and efficient home.
