What You Need to Know About Energy Efficient Window Treatments

With summer right around the corner, many people are preparing their homes for the hot months to come. Energy-efficient window treatments can be the perfect combination of affordability, aesthetics, and practicality. At Hunter Douglas, we have been pioneering energy-efficient products since the 1980s. Our selection of energy-efficient window treatments of shades, shutters, blinds, and technologically advanced PowerView Motorization can improve your home in many different aspects.

What are the Benefits?


In the summer months, your AC energy escapes through your windows and doors, and heat escapes in the winter. The one-time installation and simple maintenance of window treatments are an easy remedy to improve your house's energy efficiency.

Energy Reduction

Depending on the age of your house, it is estimated that 25-50% of your heating and cooling energy is lost through your windows. The addition of energy-efficient window treatments can improve your home’s performance and enhance natural light use.

Cutting Emissions

In a time where eco-friendly practices are at the forefront of politics, implementation, and society, window treatments are a step in the right direction. While it may seem far-fetched that your house will have a significant impact on emissions, it’s essential to understand that all savings can collectively impact.


Window treatments improve your home’s efficiency, but through Horizon Window Fashions, you can customize your window treatments to get exactly what your house needs. Window dressing is an art, and our wide selection of different styles and materials will enable you to find the perfect match for your home’s interior.

The PowerView Motorization accessory combines beauty, intelligence, and efficiency. This new wireless motorization technology enables you to control all of your shutters from your smartphone, tablet, or the pebble controller.

When activated, you can set your shutters to move automatically throughout the day according to the schedules you set up. You can program them to close and open during certain times when you’re not home to avoid those hefty energy bills from heat loss or gain.
