Questions about Energy Saving Window Treatments?

Here in Cuyahoga County and the surrounding areas, we certainly have reasons to be considered with the energy efficiency of our homes. Did you know that you could be losing up to 40% of your home’s energy out the window? Scroll on down to see some of the top questions, or get in touch with our team to get answers to your own questions about your home.Which Window Treatments Are Best for Energy Efficiency?

Cellular shades, AKA Honeycomb shades, are rated the highest in the industry. Hunter Douglas honeycomb shades have even been recognized by the US government–the first performance rating given for energy saving. Visit energy.gov to learn more about this achievement. That being said, we also have a new product–a cellular roller shade–that boasts energy efficient design, yet also rolls into the headrail. Fabric shades and drapery are another incredible way to stop the outside weather from influencing your home’s temperature. And, many homeowners don’t realize it, but shutters are another option. They are framed into the window, reducing drafts and air flow.

What Do Homeowners Choose for Energy Saving If They Want the Natural Light?

This is something we deal with pretty regularly in this part of the country. Obviously, you want the intense heat and cold to stay out, but you don’t want to miss out on that natural, mood-boosting light! One option is Duolite dual shades for honeycomb windows. Two shades are seamlessly joined, a light-filtering portion & a room darkening one. Then, you adjust the shade to suit your needs. It’s almost like top down shades, but the view-through top is actually a cellular shade! Speaking of top down, it’s a terrific way to bring natural light into your home–gliding across the ceiling, illuminating the entire space. You get plenty of light, but the majority of the window remains covered.

Is It Better to Replace the Windows? Or Get Energy Saving Window Treatments?

We all know how much of an investment homeownership is. Purchasing an entire home of windows can really put a strain on your budget. We like to remind people that even after you buy all new windows, you’ll still need window treatments. With the purchase of window coverings, they add the energy efficiency you need to keep the drafts away and make your home beautiful without new windows. Everyone’s situation is different, but it’s something to consider!

What’s the Best Feature for Home Energy Efficiency?

Beyond choosing the right window coverings, our favorite feature is home automation. It’s such an effortless addition to your home. Your smart shades can adjust on a schedule so you can experience the most efficient atmosphere. Bring in the early morning sunshine, and then when it starts to heat up mid-morning, your shades are already closing. They’ll automatically open in the evening to enjoy that dusk light.
