No matter the time of year, an improperly-insulated home can be frustrating. From expensive heating and cooling bills to stuffy rooms that suffocate no matter how long you run your air conditioner or furnace, poor insulation can create a downright uncomfortable time indoors. However, there are all kinds of swaps you can make around the house to help improve the efficiency of heating and cooling like adding or replacing weather stripping around your doors, making sure your unit is up-to-date and properly charged, and even adding new window treatments to your windows. Among all window coverings, the best options for promoting an energy efficient home are honeycomb shades or cellular shades. Honeycomb shades are designed to keep excessive solar energy out while keeping expensive heated and cooled air inside. At The Little Blind Shop, we love helping people find window covering solutions that help them add value to their home while also allowing them to realize their interior décor dreams.
This collection of cellular honeycomb shades from Hunter Douglas is our top recommendation for improving your home’s energy efficiency. Duette® Honeycomb Shades are a type of cellular shade with a revamped interior construction designed to trap air, creating an insulating layer between your windows and the outside. In the summer, this blocks excessive sun and heat while keeping cool air inside. In the winter, you can expect these honeycomb shades to keep cold air outside while your home remains warm and toasty on the inside.
These energy efficient honeycomb shades are a solid choice for homes thanks to their versatility. No matter your taste in interior décor, you are sure to find a coordinating fabric among the vast collection offered by Duette®. Explore a wealth of colors, patterns, prints, and textures offered by the exclusive Alustra® Collection, curated to bring designer fashion to your windows.
