Most homeowners don’t realize that up to 50 percent of air conditioning energy can be lost through the windows on hot summer days
Portland, OR (PRWEB) July 09, 2015
Decorview, a leading seller of custom window treatments in North America, is offering free design advice to homeowners looking to dramatically reduce energy consumption this summer.
“Most homeowners don’t realize that up to 50 percent of air conditioning energy can be lost through the windows on hot summer days,” said Kim Rush, VP of sales and merchandising for Decorview. “Installing energy-efficient window treatments will insulate your home at the window, preventing cool air from escaping and warm air from entering.”
Decorview sells the complete line of Hunter Douglas products, including the original energy-efficient window covering, Duette® Honeycomb Shades. Many Hunter Douglas blinds, shades and shutters are designed to reduce the amount of solar heat that enters through the window, helping the home maintain a more consistent and comfortable internal temperature when drawn.
For homeowners interested in reducing energy costs this summer, Decorview suggests choosing window treatments with layered or cellular construction, such as Duette® Honeycomb Shades or Vignette® Modern Roman Shades, which trap air in distinct pockets for increased window insulation. For maximum energy efficiency at the window, the company recommends the Duette® Architella® Trielle™ honeycomb shade, Hunter Douglas’ most energy-efficient window covering that features six layers of fabric and five insulating air pockets to deliver superior temperature control.
“The benefits of energy-efficient window treatments extend to the winter months too, helping homeowners achieve year-round reductions in energy costs,” added Rush.
