Get Smart

Smart technology continually puts massive convenience and power in the very palms of our hands, and a more energy efficient home is now available at the touch of a button. As you tap and touch your smart thermostat, it learns your schedule and coordinating temperature preferences. Then, it programs itself to fit your individual lifestyle with every changing season. Tapping the PowerView app is another way to enjoy luxurious convenience and energy-efficiency in your home and life. It’s well known that your windows affect the temperature of your home. If you’re like most, you don’t have time to raise and lower your shades all day, and night, long to take advantage of warming rays of sunshine and to ward off cold, frosty drafts. With the PowerView app, though, you can set scenes and schedule your shades to move automatically. You can even have PowerView determine the sunrise and sunset times in your area and move your shades with the sun. It’s really never been easier–or smarter–to save energy, time, and money than with PowerView automated window shades.


Dress Your Windows

As heated air circulates throughout your house, it brushes up against your chilly windows and loses some of its heat energy. When it moves back into your rooms, its temperature has dropped–which means your home’s temperature drops too. To keep your home snugly warm and your heating bill lower this winter, you can dress your windows. No need to knit sweaters for them; just look for beautiful shades, like Duette Honeycomb Shades, that have a cellular design. By trapping warm air in pockets at the window, these insulating shades create a barrier that stops your home’s warm air from cooling off. You’ll be cozy, comfortable, and surrounded by incredible style and sophistication. Plus, with the Season of Style Event, you can have an energy efficient home at the best price of the year. Throw in the money you’ll save in heating costs, and there’s no way you won’t be smiling this winter.
