It’s never too early to prepare your home for the hot summer months ahead. There are several things you can do now that will help you beat the heat this summer by creating a more energy-efficient home. One part of your home that only involves a small change that can reap major benefits, is your choice of window treatments. Your windows can be responsible for up to 30% of lost energy, making it more difficult to keep your home cool and shaded during the summer. At WTI Inc., we carry a complete selection of Hunter Douglas window treatments, including energy window shades in a variety of styles to suit your preferences. This month, we’re taking the time to unpack a few of our favorite styles and what they can bring to your home.
For optimal energy efficiency, we recommend Duette® Honeycomb Shades. This unique style from Hunter Douglas improves on the existing cellular shade design with a honeycomb-shaped interior designed to trap air and create a buffering that helps better insulate your home. Block excessive sunlight in style with a gorgeous selection of fabrics offered by the exclusive Alustra® Collection. Bring fashion-inspired patterns and colors to your windows, including beautiful hues like Taj, Indigo Mood, and Oregano. The advanced LightLock™ system makes it easy to keep out unwanted light while enjoying your favorite fabric combinations. Premium fabric and construction create a sound-dampening, energy efficient window treatment that absorbs up to 70% of ambient noise. With so many benefits dedicated to creating a more comfortable home, Duette® is a fantastic choice for the bedroom and living room where relaxation is key.
When you want to combine voluminous style and energy efficiency, we love the Solera® Soft Shades from Hunter Douglas. This window fashion combines the best of crisp, pleated Roman shades with the energy efficiency of cellular shades. Enjoy a minimalistic appeal in a range of beautiful colors, hues, patterns, and textures. Solera® features woven and non-woven fabrics in light filtering to room darkening opacities. Top-Down/Bottom-Up control makes it easy to keep your home shaded during the sunniest times of day without sacrificing natural light. LiteRise® makes it a cinch to adjust your shades with just a touch by gently pushing or pulling your shades into place—a suitable choice for homes with pets and children.
Transform your home’s lighting and take advantage of additional energy-saving features with PowerView® Automation. This motorization technology turns your ordinary shades into smart shades you can control from anywhere inside or outside of your home. PowerView® syncs with your local sunrise and sunset times for optimal lighting powered by natural daylight cycles. This system also makes it easy to keep your home shaded during the sunniest times of day, boosting the value of these energy efficient window treatments.
