Skylight windows are popular in homes throughout Delray Beach and the entire Southeast Florida area. Not only are they a a stylish way to brighten up a room, they give any space a more open and airy feeling. One of the drawbacks to skylights is that they can often bring in too much light and heat. Without skylight shades, you can make your air conditioning unit work overtime, and the direct UV light can damage the interior of your home. Installing skylight shades will allow you to enjoy all the benefits of your skylights while still controlling light and heat.
Skylight Shades Control Light, Heat
Honeycomb shades are a popular option for skylights, offering a solution to the problem of increased energy consumption and damaged flooring and furnishings. Skylight shades allow you to close the shade during the hottest parts of the day or during the time of year when you don’t want additional heat in your house. The double honeycomb cellular construction helps insulate your home against the sun’s heat and helps you lower your energy costs, which is an important consideration here in Florida. The Hunter Douglas Window Treatments Simplicity™ skylight system is made specifically for honeycomb shades in skylights. Use this operating system with Duette® Architella® honeycomb shades, Duette® honeycomb shades and Applause® honeycomb shades.
Operating Options for Skylight Shades
It may seem like too much of a hassle to open and close window shades up in your ceiling, but specialized operating systems make it easy. Use the Duette Skylift operating system to manually open and close your shades with a hand crank or telescoping pole. Or, for added convenience, use Duette Skylife with PowerRise® with Platinum™ technology. This remote control option allows you to raise or lower your hard-to-reach honeycomb shades from up to 40 feet away.
