At Windows & More serving the Lake Ozark area, we’re happy to share some ways you can save on your energy bills. Read on to learn more!

Protect Your Windows

Be sure to take some important steps to help insulate your windows so your home can stay warm. For example, weather-strip them as well as your doors. Caulk your basement windows as well as storm windows. Keep the windows locked so you’re sure they’re shut as tightly as possible. If the winter day is sunny, open your window treatments to let in the sun’s natural heat, and be sure to keep them closed at night so the heat doesn’t escape. And consider getting some of the best window treatments for energy efficiency. Hunter Douglas offers some excellent options:

  • Duette® Honeycomb Shades. Honeycomb shades (also called cellular blinds or shades) are one of the more popular window treatments used today. Having been around for over 30 years, they continue to offer superior privacy, insulation, and light control. This time-tested honeycomb shade keeps you warmer in the winter and cooler in the summer
  • Because of the shape of Hunter Douglas Duette® honeycomb shades, they are great at insulating windows, and Duette® Architella® Honeycomb Shades, with their honeycomb-within-a-honeycomb design are the best.
  • Duette® Vertiglide™ Honeycomb Shade. This vertical product is ideal for large windows. The Vertiglide is made with the well-known honeycomb-shaped Duette fabric, which offers unparalleled benefits: improved energy efficiency, security, and a beautiful sleek design. This incredible fabric provides extra insulation by keeping cold air out in the winter while allowing you to keep the heat from the sun from entering your home in the summer.
