Did you know that buildings use 35% of all energy consumed in the United States? That’s because windows make up 10% of a home’s insulated structure. It is also where homeowners can lose as much as 50% of their home’s cooled or heated air. Getting new window treatments can help reduce energy loss, and buying the right window covering may also earn you a tax credit. Speak with a trained consultant at Perfect Fit Window Fashions in Estero, FL; we’ll be happy to show you the shades that might qualify.
Duette® Architella® Honeycomb Shades
The most energy-efficient window covering on the market today is the Hunter Douglas Duette Architella honeycomb shade. This unique shade has a cell-within-a-cell construction. This design works in two ways to save you money on your energy bill. First, it acts as an insulation barrier to help maintain a consistent temperature inside so warm air doesn’t escape in the winter. Second, it reduces solar heat gain from the sun in the summer, allowing you to keep your environment cool and comfortable.
