(NC)-Energy-efficiency and "going green" are both at the top of the list when it comes to how people are choosing to live their lives. They're altering their entire routines to follow this trend - recycling, buying hybrid cars, doing paperless billing and more. And, with rising energy costs, homeowners are looking for new ways to insulate, economize and warm up drafty, cold interiors, particularly at the window, where significant energy is lost. Duette Architella honeycomb shades have been developed by Hunter Douglas to help address the situation.
Said Sue Rainville, Hunter Douglas director of marketing: "It all started with an experiment by Hunter Douglas inventor Wendell Colson. In exploring whether more air pockets meant greater insulation value, he thought that if one honeycomb pocket proved to be a good energy saver, perhaps more air pockets would be better. He was right."
With its honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb design, this new collection of Duette honeycomb shades dramatically increases R-values, which measure a product's ability to keep heat in and cold out. The higher the R-value, the better the product is at retaining indoor warmth. When properly installed, Duette Architella honeycomb shades can reduce heat loss at the window by up to 50 percent.
Duette Architella honeycomb shades are available in soft fabrics and luminous and brilliant colours so that homeowners don't have to sacrifice high fashion for high energy efficiency ratings.
