Adding Automated Shading to the High Performance Toolkit: HVAC, Health & Wellness, and High Tech

Most builders think of window attachments like shades and blinds as nothing more than decorative features that the homeowner will add when they move in. Think again. New research from the U.S. Department of Energy shows that insulated shades can cut heating and cooling costs by as much as 10% to 25%, respectively, especially if they are raised and lowered at the right times of the day and season. In addition to lowering utility bills, window attachments can also cut glare, improve indoor comfort, and occupant well-being.
