If you wanted to build the most energy efficient home possible, it probably wouldn’t have a lot of windows. A lot of energy enters and exits our homes through the windows. Energy from the sun streaming through windows can make our homes unbearably hot during the summer. During the winter, our heating system works overtime to keep up with heat lost through windows via conduction. Up to 50% of a home’s heating and cooling energy can be lost through the windows. There’s now an incredibly efficient and beautiful way to keep heat out during the summer, and warm air in during the winter – Hunter Douglas Duette Architella Trielle window blinds.
Architella Trielle blinds represent the advanced evolution of the already popular Duette Architella blinds from Hunter Douglas. They are made out of six layers of fabric and contain five insulating air pockets. They incorporate an innovative honeycomb within a honeycomb design to create a triple honeycomb with excellent insulating properties. Their oversized pleats also add a new level of elegance to any room. Architella Trielle window blinds are available with the Vertiglide system so you can automatically raise and lower your blinds quickly, and with the ultimate in convenience.
With their innovative triple honeycomb design, air is trapped in distinct pockets. Your house will stay warmer in winter and cooler in summer. During the hot summer months, Architella Trielle blinds can eliminate up to 80% of the heating in your home caused by solar radiation. During the winter, they can reduce heat loss through windows by up to 45%. That can save you a lot of money over the course of a cold, Calgary winter.
