Hunter Douglas Celebrate the Season Mail-in rebates – ends December 12, 2011
Here’s the link for the particulars on the Hunter Douglas rebates.

Buyer be aware. It’s not unusual for some dealers to adjust their retail pricing during sales. Make sure you compare the bottom line pricing after all discounts and rebates are applied to your purchase.

* If the install is going into a concrete wall,  you live beyond 30 miles, or you have a specialty window; these are examples where it might cost you more than the sale offers.  Any questions check with a Hirshfield’s sales person for clarification.

{national energy awareness month}

October is celebrated as National Energy Awareness Month. Each year for Energy Awareness Month, the Federal Energy Management Program (FEMP) provides materials and ideas to promote energy-saving practices. This year’s theme is Turn Words into Action; Turn Action into Results.

The team at Hirshfield’s is ready to help you turn your actions into results by helping you pick out the best, high efficiency window treatments for your home!

But how can window treatments save me money? Aren’t they there just to look pretty? Alas, window treatments from Hirshfield’s combine beauty and energy efficiency:

Window treatments as insulation
In the winter, as much as 40% of the heat that escapes a home flows through the windows. During the summer, heat from the sun’s rays coming through the windows can make it harder to keep a home cool. Energy-efficient window treatments can help decrease heat loss and heat gain, thereby reducing heating and cooling costs.

R-value is a measure of a product’s ability to resist heat flow, which is especially important in the cool winter months. The higher the R-value number, the more insulation it provides and the better it is at reducing heat loss.

A bare, low-e double-glazed window has an R-value of about 3.5. Add a properly installed Duette® Architella™ 1 1/4″ honeycomb shade with Panache™ opaque fabric and the R-value peaks at 7.86, more than doubling the energy efficiency and reducing heat loss by over 50%.

The most energy efficient treatments feature a honeycomb construction. The cells actually trap the hot or cold air, decreasing the intensity of the temperature as it enters the room. A honeycomb shade with a triple cell construction will increase the energy efficiency of a single pane of glass by five times and more than double the energy efficiency of a double-glazed window.
