As we Arizonans head into the thick of summer, a few of us might be really feeling the heat of our high energy bills. Since Arizona offers a lot of hot sun throughout the season, there’s not much that we can do except draw our blinds and crank up that AC. Well, at least that used to be the case. Hunter Douglas has created a window treatment that offers the beauty of a Roman shade plus the additional energy efficiency of a cellular shade for one window treatment that you are sure to love. The fluid, unique Solera® Roman Shades offer the gorgeous diaphanous folds of a Roman shade that instantly elevates any home’s style. Additionally, the cellular construction prevents any cold air from leaving your home and hot air from getting in. The result? A more comfortable home and reduced energy bills over time. Read on to learn more about adding Solera® Roman Shades to your home.
As mentioned, Hunter Douglas Solera® Roman Shades provide ample energy efficiency to your home thanks to the insulating properties of their cellular construction. This adds an extra layer of insulation at your windows that prevents any cool air from seeping out or any hot air from creeping in. Conversely, when those colder temperatures do start creeping in towards the end of the year, these shades will work to keep your warm air inside and cold air outside. This will stop you from running to your thermostat or your air conditioner and allow you to enjoy a comfortable home without any additional energy cost.
Another benefit of adding Solera® Roman Shades is that they come in a variety of stunning fabrics and colors for you to choose from. After all, what fun is a window treatment if you can’t make it flow with your current aesthetic? Solera® Roman Shades come in luxurious woven and non-woven fabrics, colors, textures, and patterns to suit your needs. Plus, each fabric is available with light-filtering and room-darkening opacities, so you can enjoy as much or as little sun as each room in your home requires. For example, your living room can enjoy ample sunlight with a lighter opacity while your bedroom or media rooms can enjoy a little more shade with something of a darker opacity.
Last but not least, another one of the benefits of Solera® Roman Shades is sound absorption. The cellular construction can help improve your homes acoustics if you have echoing due to wooden floors while also reducing the intensity of outside noise. This is especially helpful if you live in a noisy neighborhood, live next to a busy road, or simply don’t want to hear the nightlife of Arizona while you are trying to sleep.
