Energy Efficient

For over 60 years, Hunter Douglas has been creating and offering natural and appealing ways to harness heat and light. Design Studio™ Roman shades help save energy at the window in the following ways:

Insulation: Many fabrics in the Design Studio collection boast high R-values—the measure of a product’s ability to resist heat flow—helping reduce energy consumption, save on heating and cooling costs, and creating a more comfortable room setting. Shades in the Hobble Style and room-darkening fabric lining are best for insulation.

Solar Heat Control: Design Studio Roman shades help reduce the amount of solar heat that enters the room, the measure of which is known as the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC). The lower the SHGC, the more protected your home is from the sun’s heat in the summer. Shades with white-colored room-darkening fabric lining are best for solar heat control.

Daylighting: Sheer fabrics in the Design Studio collection beautifully diffuse natural light while bringing it deeper into the room. By drawing natural light deeper into a room, Design Studio Roman shades can reduce your energy needs for electrical lighting.

Note: For optimal solar heat control, keep the shade fully lowered to block sunlight in summer, or raised to allow sunlight to warm a room in winter.
