While energy efficiency may be a concern with any window, it can be more of an issue with a picture window, due to its size. A large picture window can be a conduit for heat on sunny days and cold air on chilly ones.
For enhanced energy efficiency, nothing beats cellular shades. Designed for year-round comfort, the unique honeycomb design of cellular shades traps air in distinct pockets, for an extra layer of insulation.
You don’t need to sacrifice style when it comes to energy-efficiency, either. Duette® Honeycomb Shades, which provide superior energy efficiency, are available in a luxurious, high quality selection of fabrics, as well as three pleat sizes. And in addition to being extremely energy-efficiency, Duette shades also beautifully diffuse natural light.
