Hunter Douglas is the industry leader in making a big energy savings
difference at the window. In 1985, they invented the highly energy-efficient Duette(r) honeycomb shades in response to the energy crisis of the late 1970s. More recently, they introduced Duette Architella(r) honeycomb shades, which offer superior energy efficiency thanks to their patented honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb construction.

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.
