Baby, It’s (Getting) Cold Outside!
As temperatures fall and winter approaches, we want our homes to be warm and cozy. Custom drapery and window treatments not only beautify your interior, but they can also be used to keep the warmth in, and the cold out.
In winter months, your home heating escapes to the outdoors through your windows. Without energy-efficient window treatments, as much as 50% of a home’s heating and cooling energy can be lost through its windows. With window treatments that provide insulation, you can reduce energy consumption, save on heating and cooling costs, and create a cozier atmosphere.
Many of the Hunter Douglas products that we sell are designed with energy efficiency in mind. Their latest innovation is the Duette® Architella® honeycomb fabric, featuring a honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb design for even greater energy efficiency. Read more about this here – Why Hunter Douglas?
Custom Drapery can also reduce heat loss when made with insulated lining and heavier fabrics. See some of the Custom Drapery projects we have created here – Crosstown Custom Drapery. We also recommend opening your window coverings during sunny winter days to catch free solar heat, and then close them at night to keep that heat in.
By reducing the amount of heat lost during winter, you can help decrease the amount of energy used in your home, which reduces your footprint on the environment while creating a more sustainable and efficient home!
