To keep ourselves comfortable in the changing temperatures, we rely on insulation. For example, we add insulation to the walls of our homes so that they will stay comfortable throughout the year. We also add sun screens in our car windshields to keep the sun from making our cars feel like an oven when we get back inside to drive somewhere in the middle of August. We also add insulation to ourselves! For example, if it is cold out, we will put on a jacket to trap our body heat to keep us warm.

Of course, there is another element of insulation that we shouldn’t overlook. When it comes to our homes, our windows can be a major loss of heating, cooling, and overall energy efficiency. The result will be a home that is too hot in the summer, a home that is too cold in the winter, and energy bills that just keep rising and rising no matter what you do. Luckily, Hunter Douglas offers insulated shades that help keep your home comfortable all your long while reducing your energy bills. Read on to learn more about the benefits of insulated shades like Duette® Honeycomb Cellular Shades from Hunter Douglas.
