Transparent or sheer shades are often called light-filtering or light-diffusing window treatments because they are made out of a material that allows light to filter into a room when completely closed. If you love to enjoy natural sunlight in your home without the drawbacks, light-filtering window treatments could be exactly what you need!

Ultraviolet (UV) light is a part of sunlight that causes furnishings to age and wear faster, weakening fibers and changing and fading colors. Light-filtering window treatments should be seriously considered if you want to enjoy natural light in your home while extending the life of your furniture, wood floors, carpeting, beloved photographs, artwork, upholstery, drapes and other treasured items. Light-filtering window treatments diffuse sunlight, softening it and drawing it deeper into a room. Daylighting saves energy by reducing the need for artificial light during the day.

With less heat added to the room, less power from the air conditioner is required to maintain comfortable temperatures. While Solar Heat Control is more effective at keeping your home cool on hot days, they are unable to provide benefits in the winter and summer like window treatments that provide insulation.

Some of Hunter Douglas’ most popular light-filtering window treatments are made of honeycomb material. For additional energy savings, add Hunter Douglas’ PowerView® motorized operating system. PowerView® enables homeowners to program an automated open and close schedule based on the positioning of the sun throughout the day. PowerView® motorization can enable the sun to add heat to the home during winter, and blocks out the sun to keep the home cool during summer, saving money on heat and air conditioning.

Each window treatment style has unique features that make it more effective at providing specific forms of energy efficiency than others. For example, some of the most effective window treatments for solar heat control and insulation are made out of opaque materials that are not capable of daylighting.
