This is the 7th installment of the “Window Tinting – 12 Things You Should Know Before Buying” eBook, which is available as a free download.

Maybe you already have your windows tinted with an energy saving window tinting, such as EnergLogic, but now you want to add another layer of insulation with window treatments. A significant improvement in energy efficiency for windows actually began with the invention of Duette® honeycomb shades in the mid-1980’s. These feature air contained within the honeycomb cells of the shades, which provide an effective insulator. These window treatments help keep the heat in during the winter and out during the summer.

The Duette brand has been immensely successful, and therefore inspired similar energy-saving innovations. These include:

  • Window Tinting 12 Things You Should Know Before BuyingSilhouette® window shadings
  • Vignette® Modern Roman Shades
  • Luminette® Privacy Sheers
  • Pirouette® window shadings

Recently, Duette has launched a new product that claims it is taking energy conservation to a whole new level. This product is the Duette Architella® honeycomb shades. What’s better than the honeycomb pockets of air to insulate your home?? THREE honeycomb pockets of air! These shades feature a honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb design which forms three air pockets that dramatically reduce heat flow at the window.

So, how much can window shades actually do for the environment? Well, if the Duette Architella honeycomb shades were installed in every window of every American home, it would potentially cut our annual energy consumption by 2.5%. And that’s just with window shades! If you combine the shades with residential window tinting or other energy saving efforts in your home, this number increases even more.

If you’re ready to get one of the many window treatments available that will reduce your energy consumption even more, then perhaps the new Duette Architella® honeycomb shades are just what the doctor ordered!
