With all the new research out about the benefits of being more eco-friendly, it’s more important now than ever that we all do our best to reduce our carbon footprint. And what better way to start than by integrating energy efficient window shades into your home? Horizon Window Fashions has a variety of energy saving window coverings. Take a look at the list below to see which would be the best fit for you!
Duette® Honeycomb Shades and Duette® Architella® Honeycomb Shades
The design of the Hunter Douglas Duette® Honeycomb Shades makes it the perfect window covering to use for creating energy-efficiency. The single-cell honeycomb design provides more insulation by trapping air inside the pockets.
The insulation within the shades means that your air conditioning or heating unit doesn’t have to work as hard to control the temperature of your home. This will lower your energy consumption, and even your energy bill. And if you want the most optimal energy efficient window shades available, then there’s the Duette® Architella® Honeycomb Shades which features a honeycomb inside of a honeycomb. This will increase the insulation, making it the most energy-efficient design yet.
These window treatments are available in many different fabrics, pleat styles, colors, and textures, making them perfect for any room. Also, we can apply the Duolite® option where two panels of fabric are included on one shade in order to maximize your options for light control.
Applause® by Hunter Douglas is a collection of honeycomb shades known for their energy efficiency. They are the only honeycomb shades with a triple-cell construction which maximizes their energy saving ability.
Applause® shades are available in several different shapes guaranteed to fit any window. And they’re also offered in some of our most popular textures and shades, ensuring that they’ll look great in any room. The Applause® shades are also compatible with several different operating systems, such as:
Solera® Soft Shades
The Solera® soft shades have the energy efficiency of a cellular shade, while having the look of a classic Roman shade.

As an added bonus to these effective shades, they can also improve your room’s acoustics while reducing the intensity of outside noise.
These are available in all fabrics and because the Solera® shades can be lowered and raised from either the top or bottom, you can control the light and privacy of your home.
