Windows, sliding glass doors, and skylights are all significant sources of energy loss in your home. During the warmer times of the year, UV rays pour through your windows and heat up your home, forcing your air conditioning unit to run longer and harder. When the weather turns cold, the warmth generated inside your home is sucked out through the windows, increasing the amount of time you need to run your heater. No matter the season, uncovered windows increase the cost of cooling and heating your home. That is why window treatments are so important. At WTI, Inc, we carry the entire Hunter Douglas window treatments line, including energy-efficient cellular and honeycomb shades.
Cellular and honeycomb shades are the top choices for energy-efficient window treatments. Their unique design creates pockets that naturally trap air. This trapped air helps to insulate your windows and prevent energy transfer. This means that your home stays cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. We carry two different cellular shade styles, Sonette® Cellular Roller Shades and Duette® Honeycomb Shades. They both provide energy-efficient insulation.
In addition to helping insulate your home from cold and heat, the uniquely designed air pockets also help with noise cancellation. This makes Sonette® Cellular Roller Shades and Duette® Honeycomb Shades great options if you live on a noisy street. They can also help with the acoustics inside a room, making them perfect for playrooms and music rooms.
Sonette® Cellular Roller Shades and Duette® Honeycomb Shades are available in a wide selection of fabrics, giving you several design options. You can choose from a variety of colors to match your home's decor.
The fabric selection for Sonette® Cellular Roller Shades and Duette® Honeycomb Shades includes many different opacity options. Choose a sheer fabric to gently filter light in your living room or an opaque fabric to block out the sun for an afternoon nap in your bedroom. Duette® Honeycomb Shades have the added option of Duolite®, which combines two shades into one, allowing you to have both a light-filtering and a room-darkening option.
Duette® Honeycomb Shades are one of our most versatile window treatments. They can fit almost any width, from very narrow to extremely expansive. They can be cut to fit arches and installed securely in skylights. There is also an option for a vertical application so that you can use them for a sliding glass door. No matter what windows you have, you can fit them with energy-efficient shades.
