Insulating Window Coverings by Princeton & Hillsborough, NJ

We have all enjoy the benefits of a little added insulation. When it comes to our clothing, a warm jacket will keep us nice and toasty even when the weather outside is cold. When it is the middle of summer, we often put a protective barrier on the front window of our car to make sure that it doesn’t heat up when we are ready to go home for the day. With all of these examples in mind, it is easy to see how far a little bit of added insulation goes. This is especially true when it comes to our window treatments in our homes.

Hunter Douglas Duette® Cellular Shades, honeycomb shades near Princeton & Hillsborough, New Jersey (NJ)

While all window treatments provide some layer of insulation, not all of them do an adequate job. If you notice that your home is particularly drafty or hot throughout the year, even when you have the AC or thermostat on, you might have poorly insulated windows. Fortunately, our collection of Hunter Douglas window treatments adds ample insulation and gorgeous style at each window in your home. Read on to learn more about the benefits of added home insulation.

Benefit 1: More Comfortable Homes

Is there anything more frustrating than needing to wear a winter coat inside of your home because of that drafty room? Similarly, who wants to stand in front of their open freezer so they can enjoy some cool air during the summer when that kitchen just doesn’t want to cool down? If you have ever had to do either of these things to feel comfortable in your own home, odds are, the air inside of your home is leaking through your windows and the air outside is coming on in. One of the benefits of added home insulation is that your home will be more comfortable all year long. This means that your home will be cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter.

In fact, our Hunter Douglas Duette® Cellular Shades and Solera Roman Shades® add energy efficiency and added insulation to your windows thanks to their unique cellular construction. This hidden layer of honeycomb-shaped cells traps air right at your windows, so no air is coming in and no air is coming out. As a result, your home will be comfortable all year long without you having to crank up the air conditioning or thermostat.

This leads us into our next benefit of added insulation.

Benefit 2: Reduced Energy Bills

As mentioned, poorly insulated windows will leave rooms feeling drafty or hot throughout the year and prompt you to run to your air conditioning unit or thermostat. However, constantly cranking these up will result in astronomically high energy bills. That is why another one of the benefits of added home insulation is reduced energy bills. When you add anyone of our Hunter Douglas cellular shades to your windows, you will notice that your home will be kept more comfortable naturally and you will be going to the thermostat or air conditioning unit less. Overtime this will reduce your energy bills.
