The Science Behind Hunter Douglas 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. All Hunter Douglas window fashions provide window insulation, offering your home increased protection against heat loss during the winter, as well as minimizing the sun's heat or "solar heat" during the summer. More specifically, here's how Hunter Douglas products help conserve energy at the window in these three significant ways:


  1. Insulation – Hunter Douglas window fashions reduce heat flow (both heat loss and heat gain) through the windows. Learn more about how our window fashions insulate
  2. Solar Heat Control – Hunter Douglas window fashions help to control solar heat (heat generated from the sun) by allowing it into your home in the winter and minimizing the amount that comes in during the summer. Learn more about how our window fashions provide solar heat control
  3. Daylighting – Hunter Douglas window fashions enhance daylighting (the use of natural light) by diffusing and dispersing sunlight deep into a room, reducing your need for electrical lighting. Learn more about how our window fashions provide daylighting
