It’s really heating up out there and I love it! Beautiful summer weather draws me outside to enjoy hiking, farmers markets and barbeques. What I don’t enjoy is going inside after a long hot day to find my home overheated, or finding my electric bill skyrocketing from the use of air conditioning! Here are my top two Hunter Douglas picks to keep your home cool in the summer and reduce energy consumption.
Duette Architella honeycomb shades reduce energy loss at the window up to 40%, dramatically reducing cooling costs during the summer. The patented honeycomb-with-in-a-honeycomb construction creates three insulating air pockets to prevent hot air and UV rays from even entering the home. Recently Hunter Douglas released Duette Architella Trielle which delivers 20% more energy efficiency than the original Architella shades! It is the most energy efficient Hunter Douglas window covering with six insulating layers of fabric. Duette Architella’s are available in a wide array of fabric colors, styles and shapes making it our number one seller.
New Style shutters are also a great solution for lowering your homes temperature during the hot summer months. New Style is the only shutter in the Hunter Douglas line awarded 5 stars in insulation, solar heat control and UV production. In fact, New Style shutters blocks 99% of UV rays when the louvers are closed! New Style shutters combine the look of real wood with the strength and stability of modern day materials. Hunter Douglas uses superior American craftsmanship for lasting durability to resist from warping and bowing, making these shutters ideal for warmer temperatures.
