How the correct Hunter Douglas blinds can keep your home warm in the winter and cool in the summer
Finding ways to heat and cool our homes passively is becoming more and more crucial as gas and electricity prices rise and more people spend time at home than before. Reducing your energy bills can be significantly aided by selecting Hunter Douglas blinds that adequately insulate the interior of your home. Windows without blinds account for up to 30 percent of all heat loss in a house.
Here are some excellent options to consider if you want to choose your Hunter Douglas blinds wisely:
Hunter Douglas Duette Honeycomb Shades
Hunter Douglas Duette Honeycomb Shades not only look excellent, but they also have a honeycomb construction with air-trapping pockets. By doing this, insulation is produced, which can help keep the interior of your house cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.
A home’s heating bills can be cut by up to 43 percent with Hunter Douglas Duette Architella Honeycomb Shades. They even act as a natural sound barrier by absorbing unwanted exterior noise.
The Hunter Douglas Sonnette Roller Shades
The Hunter Douglas Sonnette Roller Shade is a cellular-style roller shade. Like the Duette Honeycomb Shade, the Sonnette Roller Shade has two layers of fabric instead of the typical roller shade’s single layer.
Like the Duette Honeycomb Shade, Sonnette Roller Shades have great thermal qualities due to their dual-layer cellular construction, which can help trap or reflect heat as needed.
The critical distinction between the Sonnette and the Duette is that the Sonnette has a fashionable cassette that conceals the roller when raised instead of stacking and being exposed to the underside of the headrail.
Plantation Shutters are popular due to their elegant and timeless design, but they’re also a terrific choice for controlling your home’s temperature.
Whether you choose NewStyle Hybrid Shutters, Palm Beach Polysatin Shutters, or Heritance Hardwood Shutters, they are completely adjustable; you can move them to accommodate the sun’s angle at different times the day. Additionally, the construction of Hunter Douglas plantation shutters adds a layer of highly energy-efficient insulation to your windows.
If you choose a white color, these shutters will naturally reflect sunlight, minimizing heat exchange. Shutters may be fully opened to let the sun shine through during the winter or closed to deflect solar rays back to the outside during the summer.
Hunter Douglas Motorized Blinds
Keeping your windows open during the day and allowing the sun to warm your rooms naturally is a terrific method to keep your home warm and cozy in the winter. To prevent losing any built-up radiant heat, you must then close your blinds, shutters, or shades as soon as the sun begins to set. There are various options to pick from to make this process simple.
Hunter Douglas PowerView Motorization allows you to open or close the blinds with a button on a remote. You can also operate your Hunter Douglas blinds with an app on your smartphone or device. You can program timers to open or close your blinds at various times throughout the day. Additionally, intelligent controls let you schedule your Hunter Douglas blinds to follow the sun’s path. You can even operate the window coverings when you’re away from home.
