Keep Your Home Cool with Cellular Shades

While the winter and spring seasons have plenty about them to enjoy, there is nothing quite like embracing the summer. From sultry sunsets with a cocktail in our hand to fun pool days where we soak up the sun, summer promises days of endless fun. However, there is something else that summer promises: high energy bills. Hot days are excellent for the pool or beach, but they can make your home feel like a sauna at the end of the day if you do not crank up that AC and deal with the impending bills. Fortunately, Hunter Douglas has created a window treatment that not only keeps your home cool and energy bills low but also offers chic styles for each room. Read on to learn how you can keep your cool with cellular shades.

How It Works

While cellular shades may seem like magic at first, they keep your home cool thanks to their innovative design! Steeped in quality craftsmanship, our Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades are engineered to provide energy efficiency and insulation at each window. Since a high percentage of our home’s energy loss is through our windows, insulation at the window is a must. The honeycomb design of these window treatments traps air within its pockets to keep your home cool in the summer and warm in the winter without raising your energy bills. This makes these shades an excellent addition to rooms that you find particularly drafty or sunny.
