First is to improve the energy efficiency of your home by reducing heat loss. Second is a window treatment’s “R-Value” which lets you know how effective the window treatment material is at preventing heat loss. Lastly, eco-friendly window treatments are manufactured without releasing greenhouse gasses, generating waste, or using non-renewable toxic materials.

Solar Sensors Improve Energy Efficiency of Your Home

Solar SensorHere in the Palm Beach area, energy efficiency is on everyone’s minds. Even if you have good windows, a lot of your inside air can be lost through them. When opened and closed at the appropriate times, window treatments can help minimize that effect and maximize energy efficiency. With Hunter Douglas solar sensors from Treasure Coast Window Fashions, your window treatments can do the work for you when you’re not even home.

How the Solar Sensor Works

Paired with a window treatment automation system, the solar sensor controls your window treatments based on the heat and sun outside. During the hottest part of the day, the battery-powered sensor detects the amount of solar energy entering the home through the window and sends out a wireless signal that automatically opens or closes window treatment to maximize energy efficiency in the room.
