As the innovator of the first cellular shade, Hunter Douglas is committed to making the most energy-efficient window treatments to save energy and keep your home comfortable.

Without energy-efficient window coverings, up to 30% of a home's heating and cooling energy can be lost through its windows. Analysis conducted by the U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) shows that window attachments have the potential to save a significant amount of energy in residential and commercial buildings.
