Energy Efficient Window Treatments
Without energy-efficient window treatments, as much as 50% of a home’s heating and cooling energy can be lost through its windows.
Allure Window Coverings offers a wide selection of Hunter Douglas blinds and shades that increase protection against heat loss during the winter and minimize the sun’s “solar heat” during the summer.
Many of our window covering products are designed to reduce the amount of solar heat that passes through the window, which is known as the Solar Heat Gain Coefficient (SHGC).
The lower the SHGC, the more protected your home is from the sun’s heat. To enjoy the sun’s warmth when desired, simply raise or open the window fashion and invite it in.
Energy efficient window treatments help conserve at the window in many important ways:
In winter months, your home heating escapes to the outdoors through your windows while in the summertime, the outside heat flows into your home through these same windows. With window treatments that provide insulation, you can reduce energy consumption, save on heating and cooling costs, and create a more comfortable atmosphere.
Solar Heat Control
The warmth provided by the sun’s solar energy may be desirable during the winter to help heat your home, yet it can make a room overly hot and uncomfortable in the summer, driving up air conditioning costs.
Daylighting is the practice of lighting rooms with natural light rather than artificial light.
By drawing natural light into a room many of our window treatments reduce the need for other types of lighting, thereby reducing your energy use.
